Xylitol is a sakcharoalkoole found in small quantities in fruits and vegetables. The NOW Xylitol is derived from genetically non-standard corn. It resembles sugar in consistency and taste but has fewer calories and is ideal for diabetics.
Unlike sugar, xylitol is absorbed slowly, so it causes a rapid increase in blood sugar. It offers 40% fewer calories, ie 2.4 calories per gram, compared to 4 calories of sugar, while providing approximately the same sweetness as sugar with a cool sensation.
Despite the great similarities between the two, xylitol is clearly a range of health benefits. Xylitol does not cause tooth decay. Studies show that it inhibits the growth of bacteria in the mouth, in contrast with the known effects of white sugar.
The mouth, middle ear and upper respiratory is prone to a range of bacterial infections. Unlike xylitol, a conventional sugar creates an environment conducive to developing these.
Studies show that a continuous moderate intake of xylitol, increases the volume of bone and contain the minerals calcium and phosphorus.
Xylitol has been shown to prevent stress and catabolism, the nitrogen surplus, enhances postoperative protein synthesis and helps prevent stress-induced weight loss. Finally, xylitol appears to have a positive impact on the metabolism of collagen.
