It is produced by our body in small quantities. Moreover, it contains 40% less calories than sugar and unlike sugar does not turn into fat. It has the exact appearance, taste and flavor of sugar, leaving no aftertaste.
In addition, xylitol strengthens our immunity and has anti-aging properties. It also strengthens the mineralization of the dental enamel.
Xylitol has a glycemic index of 7 and is a natural insulin stabilizer. Xylitol is naturally produced by the body; in fact we make up to 15 grams of it every day. Although xylitol tastes and looks exactly like sugar, the comparison ends there, xylitol is the exact opposite of sugar. While sugar harms the body, xylitol heals and repairs. It boosts immunity, protects us from chronic degenerative diseases and has anti-aging properties. Xylitol is considered a five-carbon sugar, so it prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
While sugar is acidifying, xylitol is alkalizing. All other forms of sugar, including sorbitol, are six-carbon sugars, which feed some harmful bacteria and fungi. Approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1963, xylitol has no known toxic effects. It contains 40% less calories and 75% less carbohydrates than sugar, and is slowly absorbed and metabolized (very slow assimilation), resulting in minimal changes in insulin levels.
About one third of the xylitol consumed is absorbed in the liver. The other two thirds pass through the intestinal tract where they are broken down by intestinal bacteria into short chain fatty acids.
