Today’s podcast gets to the heart of what makes xylitol so beneficial in helping to control cavities in the mouth, and help to neutralize pH…which is where cavity control is best achieved!
When you want the facts you go to the source! Angie Stone explains xylitol and its many dental benefits in the mouth.
We also talk elder care and how her company HylifeLLC is helping to change the way people in care facilities and assisted living facilities end up suffering with infections and pneumonia stemming from dirty mouths.
Have a listen and learn how to use xylitol for dental benefits…a conversation I have with many people as an oral health coach! My hope is that every single client I work with will listen (multiple times if necessary) to understand how to utilize xylitol and the benefits of it!
