Epic Dental products contain xylitol, a powerful all-natural tool to improve your family’s oral health.
Xylitol is not a chemical or a drug. It’s completely natural and even produced by the human body during normal metabolism.
Xylitol Defends Your Teeth: Your teeth’s number one enemy is acid. Xylitol’s unique molecular structure works against the source of acid – sugar-consuming bacteria. In fact, studies show that as little as 6 grams of xylitol daily will reduce this acid-producing bacteria. By reducing the bacteria, you protect your teeth.
Xylitol Is Diabetic Friendly Sweetener: Our friends with diabetes have repeatedly thanked us for finding them a wonderful replacement to sugar. In fact, xylitol is only an 11 on the glycemic index, and since xylitol contains 40% fewer calories than sugar, you’ll be smiling each time you step on the scale as well.
Xylitol Soothes & Quenches: Epic’s xylitol not only naturally stimulates saliva flow, but also fights the cause of the acid production. Both our gum and mints are ideal ways produce additional saliva. You’ll find our mouthwash an ideal catalyst for an extra dose of tooth-pleasing-gentle-buffer-building goodness.

Xylitol is considered a healthy alternative to sugar and lacks major side effects. In fact, most users experience virtually no side effects when using the recommended dosage (usually 6-8 grams) for dental benefits. Some users, however, may experience some initial side effects when first using xylitol in large quantities.
Xylitol has been approved for use by people of all ages. Studies suggest that children especially, can benefit from using xylitol. In fact, in most of the xylitol research studies, children have been the key participants. Perhaps that’s why pediatrician’s recommend Epic xylitol.
Remember, xylitol’s not created in a lab. It comes from nature.
