Reverse tooth decay?

Too good to be true? Not at all.

The key is Xylitol. Xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar.

Xylitol has been used in foods since the 1960’s. It is a popular sweetener for the diabetic diet in some countries. In the U.S., xylitol is approved as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes.

The secret, though, is not in Xylitol's sweetening properties. What's amazing is its effects on your teeth.

From xylitol.org:

Studies using xylitol as either a sugar substitute or a small dietary addition have demonstrated a dramatic reduction in new tooth decay, along with arrest and even some reversal of existing dental caries. Xylitol provides additional protection that enhances all existing prevention methods. This xylitol effect is long-lasting and possibly permanent. Low decay rates persist even years after the trials have been completed.

And while you can buy Xylitol in bulk, there's an easier way to get the benefits: chewing gum.

Specifically, Trident White gum: either Coolmint or Peppermint. Not to mention that you get the teeth-whitening benefits.
