Prevent Tooth Decay with Xylitol

Xylitol is a natural sugar that is produced naturally in tiny amounts in the body.  It is also found in the food supply.  Remarkably, taking xylitol as a nutritional supplement has been shown to be a powerful, safe preventative for tooth decay.  Xylitol is much more effective much safer than fluoride treatments.  Chewing gum with xylitol in it restores a healthy balance of good bacteria that protects against cavities.  This is another little known treatment featured in Jonathan Wright’s Nutrition and Healing newsletter, May issue, 2012.  I highly recommend this excellent publication.
