The dentist's dream: better than fluoride - Xylitol.
A new generation of dental care has arrived.What is new about it? Xylitol with powerful anti-cavities and tooth protecting properties.
Nature Purity's new organic toothpastes and mouthwash have been formulated with XYLITOL (along with plant extracts and essential oils for better protecting and strengthening your teeth). Besides great benefits for your teeth they also have mouth watering taste!
Xylitol is a tooth friendly natural sugar substitute (sugar alcohol) naturally found in fruits like strawberries, kiwis and raspberries and vegetables. It is best known for its experimentally proven ability to fight cavities, because of its anti-bacterial properties. Not only this, but xylitol consumption results in the re-mineralization, or strengthening, of tooth enamel. In plain words, it protects your teeth and makes them stronger.
Xylitol can advantageously replace fluoride! Debates about benefits and harmful effects of fluoride can puzzle even an educated consumer. On one hand you are taught that you should use toothpaste with fluoride as it is essential for your teeth and on the other hand you can read about harms of artificial fluoride (a Harvard study links it to a bone cancer). You don't need to double guess anymore. Just use Xylitol based dental care and have a piece of mind and strong and health teeth!
For those of you who are concerned about sugar in their diet, xylitol is safe for consumption by people with diabetes (xylitol has a very low glycemic index of 7, i.e. it doesn't cause glycemic stress).
FDA Consumer Alert!The FDA is warning consumers to avoid using tubes of toothpaste labeled as made in China and, through an import alert, is stopping all suspect toothpaste from entering the United States. FDA has found a poisonous chemical, diethylene glycol (DEG), in certain toothpastes imported from China. The agency increased its scrutiny and testing of imported toothpaste and dental products after receiving reports in late May 2007 of contaminated Chinese dental products found in several countries, including Panama. FDA continues to investigate this problem and will take further action, as appropriate, to address this important public safety issue.

Q: Where Does Xylitol Come From?
Q: What Are Benefits of Using Xylitol?
Recent research shows that, Xylitol is a natural enemy of bacteria. Normally, upon entering the body certain harmful bacteria attaches to the membranes of the nose and throat. Its proliferation causes infection. But when exposed to Xylitol the bacteria loose their ability to adhere to infected membranes. In other words, Xylitol simply flushes harmful bacteria away. This is a better alternative to antibiotics, which tend to eradicate the majority of bacteria but leave stronger, resistant strains behind!
