Fluoride-Free - Fresh Taste
Whitening - Reduces Plaque - Gluten-Free
Proven safe for adults & children alike
XyliWhite™ is a fluoride-free toothpaste gel from NOW Foods that utilizes the well-researched benefits of xylitol to help support desirable oral health. Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol with a taste and texture that is remarkably similar to table sugar, with 40% fewer calories! Unlike many of the chemicals found in other fluoride-based, whitening toothpastes, xylitol is an all natural, well-tolerated substance that occurs naturally in many fruits, berries and other natural sources. In fact, the human body manufactures as much as 15 grams of xylitol every day. NOW® XyliWhite™ Toothpaste is all-natural, formulated from select materials, and guaranteed to be of superior quality. The benefits of xylitol are well-documented, and studies continue to show its beneficial role in oral health. XyliWhite™ toothpaste is completely safe for users of every age. Also available in Refreshmint and Platinum Whitening Mint.

The strong cinnamon flavoring in this toothpaste isn't provided by cinnamon flavor. Instead, the cinnamon used is cinnamon leaf oil from C. cassia. I discovered via the helpful NIH (national institutes of health dot gov), that scientific papers have been presented on cinnamon leaf showing significant antimicrobial activity against Staph bacteria and Salmonella -including a drug resistant Salmonella species. A study from August 2013 reports cinnamon leaf oil inhibiting Salmonella on lettuce and spinach greens, so maybe one day we can all return to eating at salad bars safely.
In my experience, xyliwhite has been a top notch plaque eraser and one tube lasts for months. No one can seriously expect whitening similar to that done by the dentist, but as a daily tea and coffee stain eraser, this does the job.

I'm using a lot of xylitol products and like what they can do in terms of adjusting the pH of the mouth, making your teeth feel slippery clean, and providing a "food" for the bacteria in your mouth that they cannot digest. I think I've tried almost all the xylitol oral care products that I have been able to find.
Unfortunately, the flavor of this toothpaste doesn't work for me. While I do like cinnamon, this flavor is not a "clean" cinnamon, but has a slightly strange "dirty" or earthy taste. That taste probably comes from the tea tree oil -just a guess, because I know what that smells and tastes like, and the offensive flavor resembles it.
Xyliwhite also makes a Platinum Mint toothpaste which has similar ingredients, but it does not have the "dirty" flavor. Perhaps the formula of that (which includes peppermint oil) masks it better. Whatever the case, the mint flavor tastes better to me than this cinnamon. I wish it were otherwise, because in general,...
This product tastes really good. I wasn't sure what to expect at all after reading other reviews. It is very cinnamon-y...it doesn't have the bite of a "hot" cinnamon gum, but it's definitely cinnamon. We've been using it for just over a week and I love the results. I feel like our breath is better overall, especially first thing in the mornings. We wanted to change to something that did not container fluoride and I'm so happy I found this toothpaste. I will definitely be buying it again. Even my picky husband and preschooler like it!
