Xylitol starves bad bacteria in the mouth, attacks strep, and actually PREVENTS tooth decay. It's in really really good mouthwashes. Just don't let your pets eat it. But for humans, a daily xylitol regime is a no brainer. And, in Candy Form?? Am I nuts for thinking this is the best candy I've had in a long time? Curious to hear from everyone after you've tried it.
