Dear Dr. Ellie,
I have read your blog and the Zellies website, but where can I find additional information about Xylitol? Can you point me to a couple good sites?
J in Michigan.
I am happy to provide you with many different sources of information on Xylitol and Xylitol products. While I have my own Xylitol mints and gum (Zellies), I am happy to recommend other sources of Xylitol and information. It is my personal mission to educate the public on Xylitol, and Zellies is just one way for me to do this.
Sweet Living – features a wide selection of products with xylitol. There is a cookbook for sale for the people in your life with a sweet-tooth, but who still want to have a healthy smile! Makes a great gift.
Dr. Joseph Mercola: Sweet Deception discover the deadliest health deception linked to artificial sweeteners, and why Xylitol is good for you.
Xylitol is used world-wide and is advertised heavily in Asia and Sweeden. Here are a few commercials:
Xylitol Commercial 1
Xylitol Commercial 2
Xylitol Commercial 3
Xylitol Commercial 4
Xylitol Commercial 5
Xylitol Commercial 6
This Xylitol Abstract was written for medical professionals, but has a lot of good clinical information and research.
There is a great product called Spiffies. These wipes are made with Xylitol and safe for use on babies and toddlers when you can brush their little teeth. Their site has some great information and there is also a blog.
Good luck and please let me know if there is any more information you need. I am always happy to talk with people personally.
