Dear Dr. Ellie:
Hi I see you say how many mints to have each day, but how much gum to get the same effect? How much Xylitol in each stick?
Zellies gum is small in size but has 0.7 grams of xylitol in each piece. This means that two pieces of gum will give you 1.4 grams and if you eat two pieces 4 -6 times a day you will have reached the desired amount.
Of course you can mix and match gum, mints or even dissolving granular xylitol in water.
Hope this helps,
