The #1 gums & pastilles recommended by dental & medical professionals to stimulate saliva

Mechanism of action

To stimulate saliva production: X-PUR Gums & Pastilles’ medicinal grade xylitol is the only one indicated by Health Canada to stimulate salivation during the day. It does not only hydrate the mouth for a short period of time, it actually stimulates the salivary process. In fact, its delightful taste, combined with its sweet and intensely refreshing effect, stimulates the nervous system, which generates an extremely efficient increase of the oral pH and salivary flow.

To reduce the incidence of cavities: The tooth decay-causing bacteria are not able to metabolize xylitol, which results in an absence of lactic acid and polysaccharides production.

Benefits

• Effective and simple
• Low glycemix index (11)
• 100% natural (GMO, gluten and sugar free)

Indications

• Helps reduce the incidence of cavities

Testimonials

Love this stuff. I have a condition that dries my mouth out so I always have one of these in each cheek. My dentist doesn't worry because this is sugar free and has some antibacterial benefits to it. If I've forgotten to put a couple of pieces in my mouth I can defiantly tell. My mouth feels dirtier. Hope this helps someone
