Take Xylitol Gum for healthier teeth and gums
Last Wednesday, I was invited to an intimate gathering of some mommy bloggers and Lotte Xylitol representatives at Kitchen’s Best at BGC. I was glad that I joined them because I learned a lot from this event.
The event started with a “getting to know you” activity that Mommy Ginger recommended to do to lighten up the mood. I was being the usual makulit (yah I am really super makulit in person) and laughing about small stuff with what the others were sharing, which is the reason when it was my time to answer and tell something about myself, I didn’t know what to say and what to share already hahaha (silly me!!!)
Anyway, the event was about dental care. Dr. Fina Lopez told us that tooth decay or cavities is the top chronic health concern for children all over the world. She asked us if we share utensils with our kids, and yeah I admit I am guilty with it. I also usually blow the hot food of my son before he eats it (but I know most mommies do it, not only me… umamin kayo!!! hahaha). You might find it okay at first because it is OUR kids we are talking about, but imagine this, what if we are not around and the one feeding our kids is their yaya or caretaker. Is it still okay for you if they are the one blowing our kids hot food?
Tooth decay is contagious and it can transferred by a person who have it to another just by simply blowing his/her hot food.
I am glad that when I was young my mom always reminded me to brush my teeth. Also, I am lucky that the school I have attended to was very strict in Dental Health. They will not release our clearance if we will not have a dental check up and have a dental procedure every year. This things makes me aware of dental hygiene and because of that, I am thankful that I don’t have a denture until now and I know my teeth will outlast me.
Tooth decay when left untreated can compromise a child’s eating and sleeping habits, as well as affect their self-confidence. A child suffering from severe cavities may experience difficulty in concentrating on school work, speaking, and even sleeping.
Let’s talk about Xylitol.
What is Xylitol?
- 100% natural sweetener first derived from birch trees in the 20th century
- Discovered and utilized as a sugar substitute because it tastes as sweet as sugar
- Unlike sugars like sucrose or glucose, Xylitol reduces the growth of cavity-causing Streptococcus mutans bacteria
- Used predominantly in dental health products like dental health candy, dental health drops, and dental health gum
How does Lotte Xylitol Dental Health Gum prevent tooth decay?
- It’s a sugar-free gum with over 50% xylitol as a sugar substitute
- Promotes saliva flow to maintain healthy pH levels in the mouth to prevent demineralization of tooth enamel
- Removes particles of food that may be left behind which can cause tooth decay or bad breath
- Helps remove stubborn tartar on teeth surfaces through the chewing action of the gum
- Promotes remineralization or rebuilding of the teeth enamel thru the presence of calcium phosphates and by promoting saliva production
Xylitol is available in 4 exciting flavors : Blueberry Mint, Fresh Mint, Lime Mint, Strawberry. It is recommended to take 2 pellets, 4 to 5 times daily.
