ABOUT OUR MAIN
Xylitol is a natural plant-based ingredient found in many fruits and vegetables and is part of the daily human metabolism. Reduced saliva flow is a concern for many people because when saliva flow is poor, calcium and phosphate (key minerals for the health of your teeth) are not effectively deposited on the enamel, presenting a greater risk of cavities. Xylitol stimulates the flow of saliva, which allows these minerals to bind in order to keep the enamel strong and minimize plaque adhesion. Plaque bacteria cannot metabolize Xylitol as a food and are depleted as they try to communicate and reproduce in the biofilm community. Therefore, since the bacteria do not metabolize Xylitol, they die and cannot adhere to your teeth.
