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)

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)

I've made a conscious effort to slow down on the gum chewing. I think I've been less hungry since stopping. I don't think a piece after meals is bad, but constant chewing is kinda gross.

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)

My dentist recommended I chew gum as my gums are more dry than he'd prefer. I've been using Spry for almost 2 years and I've had no negative effects at all. I've also had great dental checkups, which I assume relates to what I'm eating but... (more)

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)

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 is a little xylitol, and to me everything has tasted sweeter anyway since going primal/paleo. I feel that what desensitized people to sweets is the constant sugary drinks most people have. Since giving up soda, even the... (more)

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)

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)

A lot of people would say to just avoid sweeteners altogether due to their ability to bring on more sweet cravings. I've chewed xylitol-sweetened gum off and on for years and every time it comes back I really start craving ice cream. That said,... (more)

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)

This is the structure of erythritol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Erythritol_structure.svg). I doesn't matter where it comes from, it's the same in the end. "Chemicals" don't care if they're "natural" or "synthetic", they have a structure... (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)

My personal semi-scientific theory is that eating anything that tastes sweet is bad for you. Even if there are no sugars or calories, I think it messes with your system and has some of the same effects as a sugar spike, signaling your body to... (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)

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

You have to be a dog (or a laboratory animal) for your liver enzymes to be raised from eating xylitol. Are you a dog? High liver enzymes are generated via cell death, normally liver cells, but heavy exercise over long periods of time can raise... (more)
