Let me introduce you to the gum you should be chewing if you're not chewing it already. This is a chewing gum product that has absolutely no dangerous ingredients like saccharine, aspartame, or sucrolose. It also has no refined carbohydrates such as sugar or high-fructose corn syrup. It has no artificial colors and actually contains an ingredient that prevents tooth decay. The product I'm talking about is called Spry. You can learn about it at www.sprydental.com

Before I get into the details here, I want to remind everyone that all of my product reviews and recommendations are unsolicited and unpaid. This is not an advertisement or an infomercial. I only review products that I personally use and would recommend to my friends and family. In fact, I've recommend Spry gum to a great number of people and every one of them has thanked me for that recommendation because they've enjoyed this gum so much.

So what's so good about Spry gum? It's made with xylitol. Xylitol is a form of sugar that has a very low glycemic index. It's actually a sugar alcohol that's found naturally in trees and tree pulp. Xylitol tastes sweet, just like sugar, but it doesn't have the glycemic impact of sugar and at the same time it actually prevents cavities rather than promoting them (like typical refined white sugar would).

As the primary sweetener in Spry gum, xylitol works to prevent cavities as you chew it. By chewing xylitol, you not only get the taste pleasure from chewing great-tasting gum, you also get the health benefit of reducing the number of cavities you are likely to experience. Spry gum is also made with other natural ingredients such as soy lecithin and beeswax. Although some of the available flavors for this product (such as strawberry) do contain artificial flavors, the flavors I recommend (cinnamon and spearmint) contain only naturally-occurring oils and flavors.

I've tried all the available flavors of Spry gum, and I like cinnamon the best. It has long-lasting flavor and is delicious. Studies have also shown that cinnamon helps reduce cavities in the mouth and can even assist in the stabilization of blood sugar. With that said, there's probably not a whole lot of cinnamon in the gum, so I wouldn't consider it to be a medicinal dose of cinnamon oil.

The next best flavor is spearmint. After that, my third choice is peppermint and finally strawberry flavor. The strawberry-flavored and the fruit-favored versions of Spry gum suffer from a lack of flavor longevity. The flavor simply fades away in record time, leaving you chewing a flavorless gum base. So stick with the cinnamon and spearmint if you want long-lasting flavor.

You can purchase Spry gum at www.sprydental.com or any local health food store. It's also available online from a large number of retailers. The company that makes Spry dental is Xlear, which also makes other xylitol-based products such as a nasal wash that helps clear chronic sinus congestion by relying on the antibacterial properties of xylitol. (It's an excellent product for reducing ear infections in infants as well.)

The only drawback to Spry gum -- or any gum made with xylitol -- is that the gum is more expensive than other gums. That's because xylitol is a relatively expensive ingredient to extract from tree pulp. Products made with xylitol are simply going to cost you more money. In contrast, it's inexpensive for manufacturers to put high-fructose corn syrup in gum products. It's also inexpensive to use chemical sweeteners like NutraSweet. But if you want a gum product that's going to protect your health and prevent dental cavities, the way to go is to buy a gum based on xylitol. And from my research, Spry is the number one choice out there.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
