SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xlear, the manufacturer and distributor of the Spry line of xylitol-based oral care products in North America wants to let people know that xylitol based chewing gum and mints used five times a day are an effective alternative to flossing, which was recently removed by the US Government from its dietary guidelines as a method for oral hygiene.
“We are learning that traditional oral hygiene recommendations like flossing are not as effective as we have been told. Fortunately the understanding of oral health is continually advancing and there are easier ways to clean the mouth and protect gums and teeth. Innovative dental professionals are putting more emphasis on prevention and the management of the bacteria in the mouth that cause cavities and decay. Dentists and hygienists are increasingly recommending xylitol as a way of effectively and conveniently improving oral health. If your dentist isn’t talking about the bacteria in your mouth and recommending xylitol, it might be time to find one that is,” said Xlear CEO Nate Jones.
Xylitol has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization’s Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives the European Union’s Scientific Committee for Food and other health organizations. Xylitol has been shown to have decay-preventative qualities, especially for people at moderate to high risk for decay, when used as an overall strategy for decay reduction.
Xlear Inc. is recognized as the leading manufacturer of xylitol-based products in North America. We are tirelessly-committed to providing consumers with the health benefits of xylitol, erythritol, and other natural sweeteners, by manufacturing natural, health-enhancing products based on these incredible sweeteners found in wood, fruits, vegetables, and other natural sources.
