Adults and children will enjoy dental benefits from a little xylitol daily - providing they have at least 3 grams. Less than 3 grams may not show any oral health benefits.
Zellie’s are most effective when eaten at the end of meals. Zellie’s will limit acidic damage by alkalizing the mouth and limiting the growth of harmful cavity bacteria.
