Xylitol: Sugar’s Healthy Twin.
It’s been estimated that the average American consumes around 150 pounds of sugar each year, so it’s no wonder that we’re struggling with bad teeth, weight gain, hypoglycemia and diabetes.
Sugar leaches the body of crucial vitamins and minerals. It raises blood pressure, triglycerides and LDL - bad cholesterols.
There’s an ever-increasing link between sugar and disruptive behavior in children.
Thankfully, xylitol has become sugar’s well-behaved twin. It looks, tastes and sweetens exactly like sugar but has 40% fewer calories. When cooking and baking with xylitol, you’ll typical use a 1:1 ratio.
It's low glycemic index makes it a healthy carbohydrate, appropriate for many low carb diets.
Diabetics are turning to xylitol as a healthy alternative as well.
Since your body already produces xylitol naturally (as it breaks down some of the fruits and vegetables you eat), your internal systems are accustomed to processing it. That’s the primary difference between it and artificial sweeteners that routinely come into question for their effects on the body. Xylitol’s been found to elicit no major side effects.

Over 1,500 scientific studies have found that the more you use xylitol, the more you can eliminate sugar cravings, reduce insulin levels, and alkalinize your body. It's a great aid on the way to good health and long life.
Studies have shown that xylitol's effect is long-lasting and possibly even permanent.
