Xylitol Xylitol

Now Foods Xylitol is a natural sweetener in comfortable sachets. Its appearance resembles sugar, as it is also a white, crystalline, odourless powder. It dissolves in water very well. It is sweet but, contrary to sugar, it provides around 40% fewer calories.

Importantly, xylitol does not have an unpleasant aftertaste, which is so typical of many artificial sweeteners. When used regularly, it exhibits a number of healthy properties, which makes it a fantastic, healthy alternative for sugar.

The producer kept in mind not only highest quality of the product but also the user's comfort. One package contains 75 sachets, and each sachet contains a carefully measured amount of xylitol, that is that corresponding to a level teaspoon of sugar. The product can be used in every situation when sugar would be the obvious choice – until now.

Xylitol's characteristics
Chemically speaking, xylitol is one of sugar alcohols, the so-called polyols. It is a five-carbon sugar, which means that each molecule contains five carbon atoms. Not only does that fact distinguish it from sugar and all other sweeteners (like sucrose, glucose, fructose, sorbitol), which are six- and twelve-carbon sugars, but it is also the reason for its special healthy properties.

Xylitol is alkaline and, contrary to sugar, it does not ferment in the organism. It is an organic substance that occurs in nature. It can be found in many types of fruit, vegetables, fungi, hard wood, mainly that of birch tress (hence the name "birch sugar"). Even the human organism produces a little amount of xylitol in standard metabolic processes.

Because of its unique characteristics and effects, xylitol is applied both in the pharmaceutical and food industries. It is not only a low-calorie sweetener, but also an emulsifier (thickener). In Europe, it is the first authorised food additive (E967), safe for adults and children. Originally, xylitol was produced only out of deciduous wood, most frequently birch. Recently, a more and more common plant used for its production is corn.

Xylitol's healthy properties
Xylitol is known primarily as a healthy, low-calorie sugar substitute. It delivers only 2.4 kcal/g, so it has about 40% fewer calories and 75% less carbohydrates than sugar. Therefore, it is a perfect solution for people who care about their slim figure. It is also recommended for people with diabetes, as its metabolism is very slow and takes place technically without insulin. The liver absorbs only about a third part of consumed xylitol, and the remaining two thirds are broken down by bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.

A stable level of insulin in the blood is relevant not only in terms of the risk of diabetes. Tests have proven that it is also a key factor in preventing the premature aging of the organism. An unstable insulin level is connected with another modern-day plague – insulin resistance, which leads to overweight and diabetes, but also to a hormonal disorder called the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). That is why it is safe to say that regular consumption of xylitol will not only contribute to maintaining normal body weight, but also reduce the risk of many dangerous metabolic diseases.

Xylitol's chemical structure is responsible for its antifungal, antimicrobial and anti-yeast properties. They are useful particularly when it comes to promoting health of the oral cavity. While sugar is harmful for your teeth and causes tooth decay, scientific research has shown that xylitol has the opposite effect: it reduces the occurrence of tooth decay. That is caused by the fact of not fermenting in the oral cavity; bacteria living there cannot transform it into harmful acids. The alkaline environment created by xylitol is fatal for pathogenic bacteria.

Moreover, it affects maintaining the calcium and phosphate balance in the saliva, which has a beneficial effect on tooth mineralisation. Research shows that regular chewing gum or pastilles containing the substance reduces the risk of tooth decay and periodontal diseases.

Xylitol also exhibits the ability to inhibit the development of bacteria responsible for otitis media in children. It efficiently prevents yeast infections in the gastrointestinal tract caused by the strain Candida albicans; it can also support therapy against harmful bacteria living in the guts and the stomach, including the common Helicobacter pylori.

One of great benefits of consuming xylitol is its participation in restoring normal bone density. The stimulation of calcium absorption in the intestines is believed to be the reason for it. It can also bring relief in the first phase of arthritis. Used together with vitamin C and green tea, xylitol contributes to increased bioavailability of valuable antioxidants called catechins.

Xylitol is a more and more commonly used, low-calorie sugar substitute, popular among people with diabetes and those on a diet. It is worth remembering, however, that the range of its healthy properties is much wider. Reaching for a sachet of Now Foods Xylitol instead of popular, unhealthy and harmful sugar and adding it to your favourite drink or meal will let you enjoy not only its highly valued sweet taste, but also its beneficial effects on your health. The producer took good care of the product's quality: it is completely natural, fully safe, non-toxic and GMO-free.

Calories

Information

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.

 

Fat

Information

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.


 

Sodium

Information

Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.


 

Sugars

Information

Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight. Preparations available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Sugar

Information

The sugars are the major digestible fuel in the body. We divide them into mono saccharides - glucose (dextrose), fructose (fruit sugar); di- (di-saccharides) - lactose, maltose, sucrose; complex sugars - starch. Most of them changes into glucose during the burning process. Sugars are sweet and increase the glycemic index (except fructose). The healthiest source of acquisition of simple sugars is a diet containing the so-called. products of the first milling and fresh fruit and vegetables in the raw form.

 

Consumed during a strength workout, they delay fatigue, affecting the proper hydration of the body and keeping parts of glycogen. After finished workout,they accelerate the regeneration of the body and complement energy expenditure. The excess sugars result in the accumulation of excess fat and increase of fatty tissue. A responsible use of sugars is recommended for diabetics, both for hyperglycaemia (glucose level above the normal), and hypoglycaemia (blood sugar levels below normal). Excess consumption of simple sugars can cause tooth decay.
Simple sugars are included in many dietary supplements, most commonly used in the carbohydrate and protein and carbohydrate supplements.
Dosage: for competitive sport athletes it is recommended to consume simple sugars only during workout and immediately after workout.


 

Protein

Information

Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine ​​in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)
