Did you know that xylitol is nature’s secrete weapon that effectively fights back against the caries process. Dental caries continues to be ranked as the most prevalent global disease. Xylitol is a 5 carbon sugar alcohol that cannot be metabolized by the bacteria that causes cavities. Since it can’t be metabolized the bacteria starve resulting in stopping the demineralization of enamel.
