Xylitol chewing gum can help people who have Otitis Media by helping remove the earwax that has accumulated in the ears and by helping unclog the middle ears with any obstruction. It also asserts it antibiotic properties by inhibiting the growth of bacteria in the Eustachian tube, a part of the ear that connects the nose and the ear. This is attributed to Xylitol's ability to form into different structures that prevent bacteria from growing and thriving in the ears.
Xylitol is also recommended for people with diabetes. It has a lower caloric content than table sugar, it is easily absorbed in the body and does not cause blood sugar level to rise that would further result to hyperglycemia.
Xylitol is used in the manufacture of nutraceuticals and women's hygienic products.
It is naturally present in fruit and vegetable fibers and can be extracted from various fibrous food and other materials.
