Ever stop to consider how much sugar you consume? Many of us will end up consuming over 180 pounds of sugar each year (that’s over 13,000 pounds of sugar in a lifetime.) Our bodies pay the price for this level of consumption. Health experts agree that over-use of sugar is at least partly responsible for a myriad of diseases such as obesity, tooth decay, ADHD, hyperactivity and diabetes. Many people have decided to use artificial sweeteners instead, but these man-made chemicals seem to cause more health problems than they prevent. But we can have our proverbial cake and eat it too. Scientists have found a sweetener that is made from natural ingredients and tastes like sugar yet is low-calorie and does not cause cavities, it’s called xylitol.
What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is a naturally sweet compound that looks and tastes just like sugar. Our bodies already digest the xylitol found in fruits, vegetables and other organic substances. About 15 grams of xylitol is actually produced by our own bodies as part of normal metabolism every day. Nature’s Sweet Life xylitol is derived from non-genetically modified corn, making it a completely natural sugar substitute. Xylitol has a safe track record; it has been used for over 40 years around the world and is approved in the U.S. for use in unlimited quantities in food. Nature’s Sweet Life xylitol is gluten-free and without any corn residue. Not only does xylitol offer great taste, but it contains 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbohydrates than regular table sugar. It also has none of the side effects or bad aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
Nature's Sunshine offers several products that use xylitol like chocolate bars. And few foods inspire passion in people as well as chocolate. Chocolate is not just a snack, it’s an indulgence. Used by the natives of ancient Mesoamerica, chocolate has been recognized for centuries for its ability to give energy, restore vitality and stimulate the pleasure centers in the brain. Nature’s Sweet Life dark chocolate is infused with the essence of raspberry and other natural flavors to create a delicious treat you will savor each time you sample. Since it is sweetened with low-calorie, low-carb xylitol, you won’t feel guilty about indulging in the pleasure of high-quality, sugar-free chocolate every day.
Nature’s Sweet Life mints are an excellent way to promote good oral health throughout the day and a sweet experience that won’t weigh on your conscience. Like our other xylitol products, it stops the destructive effects of bacteria by not allowing plaque-forming micro-organisms to adhere to the surface of your teeth. Nature’s Sweet Life mints are sugar-free, safe for diabetics and non-carcinogenic. Our mints help freshen your breath while helping fight cavities. Nature’s Sweet Life mints come in two enjoyable flavors, Lemon and Peppermint.
Chewing Nature’s Sweet Life xylitol-sweetened gum actually promotes good oral health. Enjoy the refreshing taste of two flavors—Cinnamon and Spearmint as you chew your way to a brighter, healthier smile. Nature’s Sweet Life gum freshens breath while helping keep your teeth and gums healthy. Chewing Nature’s Sweet Life gum after meals helps reduce cavities in two ways. First, it stimulates the production of saliva, which washes away and neutralizes damaging acid produced by bacteria in the mouth. Second, because it is sweetened with xylitol, it helps curb the growth of bacteria. The result is a cleaner mouth and fantastic breath. Our xylitol-sweetened gum is the perfect aid for children who just won’t brush enough, or for adults who can’t find the time to brush between meals. Enjoy after meals, as a snack, or anytime.
Do you want a brighter, healthy-looking smile? When you use Nature’s Sweet Life’s unique’’’xylitol-enhanced mouthwash, you say goodbye to cavity-causing plaque and hello to a new, radiant smile. Tooth decay and gum disease are serious health problems in our society. According to the American Dental Association, 75% of American Adults over the age of 35 suffer from some form of periodontal disease. Nature’s Sweet Life xylitol-enhanced products supplement dental health and fight periodontal disease by creating an unwelcome environment for bacteria in the mouth. Bacteria have difficulty sticking to teeth when xylitol is present—as a result, there is less plaque build-up and cleaner, healthier teeth. Our mouthwash contains the highest concentrations of xylitol possible in order to provide increased effectiveness and the maximum dental benefit. All Nature’s Sweet Life products are sugar and fluoride-free without artificial ingredients. We’re confidant that once you try our mouthwash, you’ll never settle for store bought brands again.
Did you know that the average person takes approximately 21,600 breaths each day? Each of these breaths brings with it bacteria, pollution and allergens from the environment. Research shows that more than 90% of infection-causing bacteria enters the body through the nose. Some of these bacteria thrive in the nasal passages. When used as a mist, xylitol has been shown to decrease bacteria’s ability to adhere to cell walls of nasal passages. Nature Sweet Life’s Nasal Mist also helps make nasal passages and sinuses feel clean, moist and more comfortable throughout the day. Nature’s Sweet Life’s Nasal Mist contains all natural ingredients, including grapefruit seed extract and 100% pure xylitol.
Life is sweet—and Nature’s Sweet Life Products make it even sweeter by giving you healthy, delicious alternatives that you can use every day. Because xylitol is a natural substance found in the foods we already eat, it is perfectly safe for human consumption and has been given the FDA’s safest rating as a food additive.
