Our Science

Epic Dental products contain xylitol, a powerful all-natural tool to improve your family’s oral health.

Xylitol is not a chemical or a drug. It’s completely natural and even produced by the human body during normal metabolism.

What It Does


  • Xylitol Defends Your Teeth: Your teeth’s number one enemy is acid. Xylitol’s unique molecular structure works against the source of acid – sugar-consuming bacteria. In fact, studies show that as little as 6 grams of xylitol daily will reduce this acid-producing bacteria. By reducing the bacteria, you protect your teeth.  
  • Xylitol Is Diabetic Friendly Sweetener: Our friends with diabetes have repeatedly thanked us for finding them a wonderful replacement to sugar. In fact, xylitol is only an 11 on the glycemic index, and since xylitol contains 40% fewer calories than sugar, you’ll be smiling each time you step on the scale as well.  
  • Xylitol Soothes & Quenches: Epic’s xylitol not only naturally stimulates saliva flow, but also fights the cause of the acid production. Both our gum and mints are ideal ways produce additional saliva. You’ll find our mouthwash an ideal catalyst for an extra dose of tooth-pleasing-gentle-buffer-building goodness.

Epic Xylitol: Safe for You. Safe for Your Children.

Xylitol is considered a healthy alternative to sugar and lacks major side effects. In fact, most users experience virtually no side effects when using the recommended dosage (usually 6-8 grams) for dental benefits. Some users, however, may experience some initial side effects when first using xylitol in large quantities.

Xylitol has been approved for use by people of all ages. Studies suggest that children especially, can benefit from using xylitol. In fact, in most of the xylitol research studies, children have been the key participants. Perhaps that’s why pediatrician’s recommend Epic xylitol.

Remember, xylitol’s not created in a lab. It comes from nature.

Where It Comes From

German chemists discovered the naturally occurring sugar in the late 19th century in birch tree bark, and since then, it’s also been naturally found in fruits and vegetables.

We choose corn. It’s renewable, and it affords us greater opportunities.

Marketing myths abound that the plant source of xylitol impacts the end product (i.e., corn vs. birch), but any scientist worth his sweetener will tell you there’s no molecular difference in the harvested end product with regards to its source. None. Zip.

Epic xylitol comes from some remarkable family corn farmers in China who help us go to exhausting lengths to bring you the best and purest pharmaceutical-grade xylitol on Earth. Using non-GMO, renewable corn crops, we can safely harvest and produce enough xylitol to power our small company (and its eco-friendly-smiling customers) and sleep soundly at night knowing we’re stewards of the earth and future generations.
