Health Notes

Xylitol

Xylitol
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Tooth Decay
Dose: Chew gum containing xylitol regularly
Chewing gum with xylitol, a sugar substitute, may reduce the activity of cavity-causing bacteria.(more)
Ear Infections
Dose: 8.4 grams daily divided into several doses of chewing gum
Xylitol, a natural sugar found in fruit, helps control mouth bacteria that cause ear infections.(more)

Tooth Decay
Dose: Chew gum containing xylitol regularly

Certain sugar substitutes appear to have anti-caries benefits beyond that of reducing sugar intake. Children chewing gum containing either xylitol or sorbitol for five minutes five times daily for two years had large reductions in caries risk compared with those not chewing gum. Sorbitol is only slowly used by oral bacteria, and it produces less caries than sucrose.1

Xylitol gum was associated with a slightly greater risk reduction than sorbitol gum.2 Bacteria in the mouth do not ferment xylitol, so they cannot produce the acids that cause tooth decay from xylitol.3 A double-blind study found 100% xylitol-sweetened gum was superior to gum containing lesser amounts or no xylitol.4 Another study found xylitol-containing gums gave long-term protection against caries while sorbitol-only gum did not.5

Other research has confirmed the anti-caries benefits of xylitol in various forms, including gum,6 chewable lozenges, toothpastes, mouthwashes, and syrups.7 Mothers typically transmit one of the decay-causing bacteria to their infant children, but a double-blind trial found that the children of mothers who regularly chewed xylitol-containing gum for 21 months, starting 3 months after delivery, had a greatly reduced risk of acquiring these bacteria,8, 9 and also had 70% less tooth decay.10, 11

Ear Infections
Dose: 8.4 grams daily divided into several doses of chewing gum

Xylitol, a natural sugar found in some fruits, interferes with the growth of some bacteria that may cause ear infections.1, 2, 3 In double-blind research, children who regularly chewed gum sweetened with xylitol had a reduced risk of ear infections.4, 5 However, when they only chewed the gum while experiencing respiratory infections, no effect on preventing ear infections was found.6

Xylitol is the alcohol form of xylose, which is used as a sweetener in chewing gums and other dietetic products. Xylitol has less effect on blood sugar or insulin levels compared with sucrose,1 so it may be a useful sugar substitute for diabetics.2 In addition, xylitol inhibits the growth of several types of bacteria, including those that cause tooth decay and ear infections.3, 4, 5, 6
