Mama has found a new teeth cleaner...aka gum with xylitol! No chemical aspartame and vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, nut-free, diabetic friendly and dairy-free.
Did you know that most mainstream gum often contains milk?! Crazy. So my boys didn't have gum for a long time.
After my boys had horrendous dental check-up's a few years ago, I started cutting sugar and looking for pro-tooth health products. I found that gum with xylitol was a great way to keep the mouth clean, and it could be found in products like gum. Since my boys desperately wanted to chew gum, this was a great idea for us!
If we are out and they have a sugary treat, they pop in some xylitol gum to clean their teeth until we can brush. And we have had NO CAVITIES now for 1.5 years (that's three check-up's each, people)! I am so happy! And so are the kids because mom lets them chew gum a LOT. :)
First, we loved Trident Original gum with xylitol. But it also has aspartame! I wish I had known that sooner. No thank-you chemicals.
Then one day I found PUR at the local market, and it seemed to fit the bill for what I wanted. The boys really liked it. We stock up at Amazon, and can get all 6 of the flavors!
"PUR Gum is Vegan, Gluten-free, Non-GMO, Nut-free, Celiac and Diabetic friendly and made in Switzerland. PUR Gum is safe for pregnant women, and children of any age. PUR Gum is sweetened with Xylitol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol and a healthy alternative."
