Pleasant and Safe Product
Posted by Reviewer1434258 on Jun 02, 2013
Spry toothpaste is a pleasant-tasting toothpaste which uses the alternative sweetener Xylitol and peppermint for flavoring. Xylitol is a sugar made from the Birch tree. Xylitol has a low glycemic index of 7, which makes it have fewer calories than sucrose by 30%. Humans can digest Xylitol because of our complex digestive system, however simple micro-organisms such as fungus and bacteria cannot digest Xylitol. The bacterium and fungi will accept the Xylitol past it's membrane, because Xylitol resembles sugar. Once inside the bacterium, the Xylitol becomes lodged, and the Bacterium will die due to a lack of energy. The situation is similar to feeding a human Sweet N' Low; it tastes good however will not sustain life. Xylitol, used in Xclear toothpaste, will kill fungus and bacteria in the mouth and help to prevent tooth decay. Further Xylitol has been proven safe and has been used since the 1930's, being made from the bark of the Birch tree. Finally Xylitol does not affect probiotic organisms in the digestive system. In fact, it helps them by converting gram-negative bacteria to gram-positive, thinning down the wall of the bacteria and increasing effectiveness of the bacteria. Xclear Spry toothpaste is a win-win product.
Love this Toothpaste

It's the only toothpaste I'll use. I get cancer sores from using regular toothpaste because of the SLS.

good for you

My teeth feel absolutely clean after brushing with this toothpaste just like how the other reviewers said. I recommend this product to everyone!

Effective but mild toothpaste. Great for those sensitive to other toothpaste brands.

This is a really good toothpaste. Anything to stay away from the dentist.

I‘m glad it has stevia, instead of sugars. And the breath is good after brushing. Oh, it doesn‘t foam. So you won‘t look feel like chewing soap J And it tastes „friendly“. I don‘t know if you can say that, but it really feels that way – friendly.

This toothpaste suits me well as a replacement for flouride based toothpaste used previously.
Best Natural Toothpaste
Posted by Reviewer2676592 on Jun 05, 2009
This is the best natural toothpaste out there and boy have I tried alot of them! It is not gritty. It has a great spearmint flavor that refreshes. It has no fluoride, SLS or other nasty chemicals. It uses Xylitol which sweetens and aids in preventing cavitites. If I could give it 100 stars I would.
