I have read your book and am interested in starting the program. I am concerned because it appears that every ACT mouth rinse, including the alcohol free ones, list sorbitol as an ingredient, and you have clearly said to stay away from sorbitol. Are there ACT rinses without it? Also, do you have a list of stores that sell Closy’s, or is it only sold online? I appreciate your help, and thank you for the book!
If I made my own line of (expensive!!) oral care products – I would sweeten them with xylitol and eliminate colors and a few other unnecessary ingredients!
Is ACT perfect? Not perfect – but it will work!
Providing you are eliminating plaque with xylitol and the other rinses I recommend – sorbitol ( in ACT product) is not a problem.
In our restaurant servers were eating sugarless breath mints ( from Starbucks) that were made with 100 percent sorbitol.
Now they eat Zellies mint mints and suddenly their plaque has gone.
Xylitol is essential in this program – and so is using the exact system.
This is like a “cake recipe” and cannot be changed – if you want to experience the same results!
There should be no water rinsing between the steps – After rising with Closys- spit out and then go to brushing with Crest ( make sure you have the correct and original one) to Listerine, and then finally to ACT.
I hope that answers your question – and if you have time to let me know how things are going, I always love to hear feedback!
