Xylitol is widely known and used as a natural sweetener. It looks and tastes like sugar, but has fewer calories and doesn’t raise blood sugar levels. It’s what keeps 4everMints sweet and healthy. But better yet, Xylitol is also a natural plaque fighter. And by placing a 4everMint up along the gum line and letting it slowly dissolve it actually reduces the level of plaque build-up. Now you’re happy. The dentist is happy. We’re all happy.
