This wonderfully flavorful gum is sugar free and sweetened exclusively with xylitol. Epic Xylitol Gum contains 1.06 grams of xylitol per piece of gum! That means only 6 pieces per day will give you the recommended minimum of 6 grams needed to protect the teeth of those at high risk for cavities.
The sample box contains 180 single packets of these Epic xylitol gum flavors: Cinnamon, Fresh Fruit, Peppermint, Spearmint. The same mix also comes in a bag of 500.
Xylitol -- A Safe Alternative to Sugar
Epic gum is gluten-free, casein-free, a safe alternative to sugar-based gums, and Vegan. The corn from which Epic xylitol is made is pharmaceutical grade, non-GMO (genetically modified organisms), and is grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Once the xylitol is made, there are no corn proteins left to provide allergens that could cause a corn-based reaction. The gum does use a soy-based lecithin.
Dental Benefits of Xylitol Use
Along with proper dental hygiene, xylitol can reduce the risk of dental caries and plaque. Xylitol-sweetened products, such as chewing gums and mints, increase salivary flow, preventing dry mouth and aiding in repair of damaged tooth enamel.
"With xylitol use, the quality of the bacteria in the mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria survive on tooth surfaces. Less plaque forms and the level of acids attacking the tooth surface is lowered." California Dental Association
Experts who have studied the effects of xylitol on teeth recommend:
- Daily intake of 6 grams of xylitol for patients at high risk for cavities
- Use of xylitol products that actively stimulate saliva, such as xylitol gum
- Distribution of the daily intake over at least three occasions (e.g. after meals)
- Use of 100% xylitol sweetened products
TMJ patients avoiding gum chewing may prefer Xylitol Mints, Toothpaste, Oral Rinse and Dental Floss as alternatives to gum as part of a daily xylitol routine.

The gum is great, but it sure doesn't last long at all. For what it cost I think it should last longer
