I have been looking for a natural toothpaste that I don't have to make myself, and I stumbled upon Redmond Earthpaste, which is the best I have found thusfar, but I have some concerns with the ingredients. (Also- if you know of a better... (more)

I used them and they are ok but SO PRICEY! Why don't you want to make a paste yourself? Every month I mix up a small container of clay (you can get it at whole foods at it will last you YEARS), and baking soda, and in a separate spray bottle I... (more)

I have been using xylitol as a sugar substitute. I don't use much, I only use it when I occasionally have a cup of English Breakfast tea (the only caffeine I ever have) It comes from plants and is low glycemic index and doesn't spike blood sugar... (more)

It may not be paleo but it is very effective at changing the microbiome in the mouth. My OH cleared up horrid halitosis using Xylitol only chewing gum (Spry) 5 x daily over a period of a few months. Nasty niff breath gone, never to return two... (more)

How or why does xylitol raise your liver enzymes? And why are high liver enzymes bad?

Fifteen year old paleo girl here. I recently got back into chewing aspartame gum like trident's cinnamon, and earlier this evening I looked up aspartame, saw a bunch of bad stuff about it being a neurotoxin and being banned in some parts of the... (more)

Xylitol gum was pretty helpful when my daughter had weak baby teeth. Just please please keep it away from your dog, if you have one. We had it in the house before it was known to be harmful for dogs, and had a $5k vet bill when ours got into it. (more)

So I have this vice--spry chewing gum. When I first made the switch to primal/paleo eating habits I used regular sugar free gum (aspartame overload!) to help deal with the sugar cravings I was having after removing all of the heavy carbs, sweets... (more)

I go for glee gum instead. There's a xylitol version if you want sugar free.

Honey can't be beat. Xylitol can be made of corn or birch, hard to know which. There is a little voice against xylitol lately. We have taken it off our shop shelves until we hear good news. If in doubt, throw if out! (ie don't do it)

I just got done ordering the health garden kosher xylitol. I liked it because its made from hardwood instead of corn (as suggested by Dave Asprey). Got it off amazon, will report back with what I think of it. Paid $38 for 5 lbs shipped. Couldn't... (more)

I was also curious about this so I just asked Dave: "Hi Dave I'm having a bit of trouble sourcing why you think stevia & xylitol are the best sugar sweeteners, considering xylitol is a sugar alcohol & the research on stevia is... (more)

Just curious if anyone has had this response to xylitol. Has your sense of sweetness been desensitized by continuing to use sweeteners? When you pull xylitol out do you notice almost everything including veggies like tomatoes and cabbages tastes... (more)

The only sweetener I use regularly is xylitol, and actually, things taste much sweeter now. I'm lacto-paleo, I suppose, and I'm starting to find sweet things much too sweet. Fruit is actually appealing now, and it never used to be. At least for... (more)

What has been your experience with xylitol for teeth? You don't necessarily have to eat it. I don't eat mine, but I use it for rinse like listerine in public settings. I believe it really does help ease pain and help with bacteria, but it hurts... (more)

You have to look up Dr. Ellie Phillips on the web. See both her site and her blog. Also her book "Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye" has an extensive chapter based on research about xylitol and oral health. After a year and a half on her program, which... (more)

While I try and keep sweeteners to a minimum and I use xylitol. It just tastes better and is supposed to not spike your insulin. However I have read in various other health and nutrition blogs that it is bad and that anything sweet can create a... (more)

Much better to just go ahead and use plain white sugar than these replacements that trick the body.

I recently found a chewing gum alternative that is sweetened only with Xylitol. Anyone have any good or bad info on it? I do remember my dentist recommending me a toothpaste with Xylitol a few years back. He said it had been shown to reverse... (more)
