Dangers of Aspartame
Nearly every major brand of chewing gum contains aspartame. Aspartame in chewing gum may be more dangerous than other sources of aspartame due to the way it is absorbed -- the oral mucosa absorb the toxin and it easily permeates the blood-brain barrier. Many people experience symptoms ranging from headaches, dizziness, and nausea, to irritability, joint pain, weight gain, and palpitations. Aspartame has been linked to numerous serious health problems including birth defects, cancer, diabetes, mood disorders, seizures & epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, lupus, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, and lymphoma.
Benefits of Xylitol Gum
Xylitol has gained popularity in the dental field as it has been shown to reduce plaque and oral bacteria that can lead to cavities and tooth decay. According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, “Xylitol is an effective preventive agent against dental caries… Consumption of xylitol-containing chewing gum has been demonstrated to reduce cavities in Finnish teenagers by 30-60%. Studies conducted in Canada, Thailand, Polynesia and Belize have shown similar results.” Children whose mothers chew xylitol gum have a 70% lower incidence of tooth decay. Xylitol gum may even help to reverse cavities when chewed regularly. Chewing xylitol gum also helps relieve dry mouth. Xylitol may play a role in weight management, as it cuts down on cravings (particularly carb cravings) and promotes a feeling of fullness. Xylitol gum is diabetic friendly, as it is sugar free and does not spike blood glucose levels.
