Source Naturals is pleased to introduce XyliSmart a "tooth-friendly" sugar substitute which, unlike other sugars, may reduce the risk of dental caries and does not promote tooth decay. While frequent in-between-meal snacks, which are high in sugars and starches, may promote tooth decay, XyliSmart is a low glycemic sweetener that helps manage healthy glucose levels in the body. It also looks and tastes like sugar and produces a cool, refreshing aftertaste, which is pleasing to the palate. "XyliSmart is Source Naturals’ trade name for xylitol, a natural sugar alcohol. Unlike sugar, which is an energy source for bacteria in the mouth, xylitol limits the growth of decay-causing bacteria like Mutans streptococci," says Source Naturals National Science Educator Guy Devin, Ph.D. "Research has shown xylitol’s benefits to include the prevention of dental caries along with its diabetic-safe sweetening properties."
Xylitol provides a healthy alternative to conventional sweeteners. It looks and tastes like sugar, but with 40% less calories, and without the undesirable side effects of sugar. Because it is absorbed slowly, it does not result in a blood glucose concentration spike, which can alter mood or energy levels. According to Devin, "Foods containing sugars promote the growth of Mutans streptococci bacteria, which multiply and produce harmful acids in the mouth." Devin continues, "Once pH levels in the mouth drop below a neutral pH of 7, tooth enamel begins to demineralize. Xylitol can provide increased salivary flow rates, which can buffer the acids produced by bacteria and support the remineralization of demineralized teeth."
Excess sugar consumption from convenience snacks, which are all too prevalent in our modern society, may trigger metabolic imbalances and long-term health concerns. Individuals concerned with healthy blood glucose metabolism, and who savor the taste of sugar, can now enjoy XyliSmart, a refreshing alternative sweetener. Mutans streptococci," says Source Naturals National Science Educator Guy Devin, Ph.D. "Research has shown xylitol’s benefits to include the prevention of dental caries along with its diabetic-safe sweetening properties." About Source Naturals
XyliSmart Addresses the Following Systems
Our modern, “on the go” diet of processed, unnatural junk foods is overwhelming our bodies. Drastic increases in refined carbohydrates and sugars have led to health concerns unheard of even a generation ago. Increased blood glucose can lead to excess body weight and inefficient use of insulin... all are part of a spiraling, self-perpetuating cycle that is highly challenging to health. Through this cycle, increased blood sugar can lead to reactions like inflammation and glycation. Excess inflammation is an underlying imbalance that can affect cells and tissues and lead to concerns about our health. Glycation occurs when excess blood sugar binds with protein to produce Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs), compounds that impact healthy cells. Many nutritional supplements can increase insulin efficiency and help maintain blood sugar in a normal range.
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
