Six-carbon sugars and artificial sweeteners that are found in everyday foods and drinks, like pastries and sodas, actually feed the bacteria in your mouth! The bacterium processes the sugar and changes it into an acidic by-product that attaches to your teeth and dissolves the enamel, creating cavities. But a new sweetener has been found that is a 5-carbon, which the bacteria can’t feed on. This sweetener is the all-natural Xylitol! It is a sugar alcohol sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables. Besides not creating any acid, xylitol also attracts the bacteria, allowing the mouth’s natural remineralization process to work with less hindrance.

I'm a bit of a mouth-washaholic and I have finally found my number one rinse. The taste is by far the best I've found, and I have tried a lot. After reading about the benefits of xylitol as a sweetener i was sold. I highly recommend this product for both the oral health benefits and the super great taste.
