People have been chewing gum as a part of their oral care routine since ancient times. Originally, made out of sap from a tree, chewing gum and its ingredients have evolved over many centuries. As our health conscious community becomes increasingly aware of the impact that certain ingredients have on our bodies, we’ve learned the importance of only chewing natural chewing gum.

Unfortunately, many people ignore the ingredients of their chewing gum and only consider the ingredients of the food they eat. When you eat food, you chew and swallow it. When you enjoy a piece of gum, you only chew it. Because chewing gum remains in your mouth longer than the food you eat, you are in essence bathing your mouth in the ingredients.

After dentists found that chewing gum sweetened with sugar was causing more harm than good, major brands began sweetening their products with the popular yet controversial ingredient aspartame. Mounting research suggests that aspartame may cause a variety of health problems including digestive symptoms, mood swings, Parkinson’s, autoimmune disorders, Alzheimer’s, and more. Although clinical research is still being conducted, doctors and dentists recommend that only natural chewing gum be a part of your daily routine.

Xylitol chewing gum is the perfect addition to your oral care routine. It only contains natural ingredients from the highest quality sources, making it your best choice of natural chewing gum. Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener derived from fruits, vegetables, and plant fibers. It promotes oral health by keeping bacteria from sticking to your teeth and growing into colonies. Bacterial colonies produce an acid as a bi-product which causes tooth decay and cavities.

Chewing a piece of xylitol gum after snacks and in between meals is the easiest and most delicious way to a healthier mouth and fresher breath.
