Sweetened with Xylitol, Spry Chewing Gum provides dental health benefits and encourages good oral health habits.
OREM, Utah “ July 23, 2009 “ Xlear, Inc., a leading manufacturer of xylitol products, today introduced its new 30-count, sugar-free Spry Chewing Gum. Xlears xylitol-rich gum provides dental health benefits by preventing acid production from oral bacteria and by significantly reducing the ability of bacteria to adhere to the tissues in the mouth. Furthermore, studies have shown that xylitol moisturizing effects help to create a better oral environment and to increase mineral absorption back into the enamel of the teeth. Spry Chewing Gum is 100 percent sugar-free, and is a non-GMO, gluten-free product that is recommended by dental health experts around the world.
Spry Chewing gum is available in several breath-freshening flavors, including spearmint, peppermint, fresh fruit, cinnamon and green tea. Spry gum is part of the Spry Dental Defense System® a family of oral health care products that are sweetened with xylitol, a naturally occurring sweetener found in fruit, vegetables and other natural sources. Unlike other sugars and sugar alcohols, xylitol cannot be digested by the bacteria (Strep. mutans), and as a result, helps reduce the risks of tooth decay.
"Simply stated, oral care products, such as our Spry gum, which contain high-levels of xylitol, are good for your teeth," said Blaine Yates, president and chief executive officer of Xlear, Inc. "Since the best dental results are achieved by using xylitol-rich products throughout the day and especially following snacks, our new packaging makes it easier for our customers to carry more Spry gum and continually encourage good oral health habits for their families in a healthy, fun and satisfying way."
Over 25 years of clinical testing confirms that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. Numerous field studies conducted throughout the world have led to official endorsements by dental associations in Finland, Norway, Sweden, England, Ireland, Estonia and the Netherlands of products containing high levels of the sweetener. In addition, in 2008, the Arizona State Dental Hygienists Association became the first American dental or dental hygienist organization to endorse the preventive and therapeutic benefits of xylitol.
Spry Gum is available through health food and retail stores that carry Xlears Spry-branded products. For a local retailer, search Xlears Online Store Locator. Spry is also available online at www.Xlear.com.
