Daily Dose of Xylitol

Dear Ellie,

I have heard about xylitol, but I am confused about how much I need daily. Can you help me out?

Dear B,

For dental health, I recommend at least 6 to 10 grams of Xylitol daily, (about 12-20 Zellies)You can take up to 50 to 100 grams a day, but my best advise always is to start raising the dose slowly.

For Diabetics, xylitol is FDA approved and has been safely used by diabetics for over 100 years. Xylitol comes from natural sources and has a low glycemic index.
