My 100 Day Experiment: What Am I Doing and Why?

My 100 Day Experiment Start Date: May 1, 2014

The idea for this came about after I heard someone else speak of a product she was using that is good for the health of the teeth. I was curious and thought I would look up the product on Amazon.com as you can find just about everything there! I found it and read some of the reviews and then also checked out the company website. I put the product in my shopping cart on Amazon, as I was planning to purchase and start using it. I procrastinated a bit and I finally decided I would buy it, because I kept seeing/hearing more about the benefits. When I checked again on Amazon the price kept going up and up and I was disenchanted because I did not want to pay so much for it. I then went on the company website to read more about the product and saw that it was sold it a box of 100 packets and that is when a “lightbulb” went off in my head and the experiment was created.

I contacted the company to see if they would consider providing me with the product to conduct my experiment. They were actually intrigued with the idea and want to see/hear what results I get. So what is this product? You may have heard of it, but never knew that it can help prevent cavities, plaque formation, antibacterial, diabetic friendly and a host of other things. It is called xylitol and is derived from 100% North American Hardwood (not all/many companies claim/mention this so be sure to inquire before you purchase).

The plan is, that I will use 1 packet (which is 4g and safe to use up to that amount daily) daily for 100 days to see if I get any of results mentioned on the box. I went for my dental visit a couple of months ago and am not due for a cleaning till later in the year and by then will be finished with the experiment. I will have extra that I can use after I record my results and then will follow up again after my next dental visit to see if there are any significant changes they notice and I want to share.

How I will consume it, is at follows: I will have 1 packet a day spread throughout the day after a meal or snack and then after I brush my teeth before going to sleep, I will finish what is left in the packet, as it is safe to use and beneficial.

I am including some close up photos of what my teeth look like now and then throughout the experiment I will periodically share any of my results with photos, writings via this blog and also videos on my youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheRawsomeVeganGal

Disclaimer: I was not sponsored to write this, but I did receive a sample of the product(s). These are strictly my opinions. I only review products that I, myself would use and purchase.

I am also including some photos from the product packaging that tells you more about the product and the benefits mentioned.
