Orem, Utah (PRWEB) March 28, 2006

In recognition of the American Diabetes Association? S Day (ADA) American Diabetes Alert, Xlear, Inc. is the promotion XyloSweet, a sweetener xylitol of 100 percent, as a healthy alternative to sugar for people with diabetes or at risk of diabetes. ADA Alert Day Diabetes is an annual one day event dedicated to helping people understand if they are at risk for diabetes. The event draws attention to the fact that 20.8 million Americans suffer from diabetes, and nearly a third of them (6.2 million) do not know.

way to help reduce risk is to use a sweetener such as XyloSweet (http://www.xlear.com/xylosweet). The health benefits of XyloSweet extend to those who have been diagnosed with diabetes and the millions of Americans who are at risk without knowing it. The ADA offers a free test at http://www.diabetes.com/risktest to help people understand if they are at risk for diabetes.

? In addition to the staggering numbers of undiagnosed diabetics in the United States, about 41 million Americans have pre-diabetes, meaning their blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal but not high enough to be classified with diabetes? said Nathan Jones, president of Xlear, Inc.? Without intervention, people with pre-diabetes are at much higher risk of developing diabetes. Given the growth of diabetes among adults, juvenile diabetes, obesity and tooth and gum problems, it is wise for us to consume less sugar and incorporate an alternative such as soft XyloSweet in our diet. ?

XyloSweet, consumers will not only reduce their daily intake of calories and carbohydrates, they can keep food tasty sweet in their diet. XyloSweet provides a safe way for diabetics to sweeten everything from their morning drink for a snack in the evening. XyloSweet can be exchanged for ordinary table sugar at a ratio of one to one, and because it dissolves, mixes and behaves like sugar, it can be used in most recipes that call for common sugar


metabolized without insulin, creating a significantly lower glycemic effect when eaten. It is slowly absorbed by the body, resulting in a low glycemic index of seven compared to sugar? index of 87 or more. Xylitol is considered a sugar alcohol and carbohydrates has zero net effective, which means that xylitol is not digested and processed by the body as a dietary carbohydrate.


is available through Xlear (http://www.xlear.com) in single serving packets, and one, three and five sacks book. The product can also be purchased by one of the thousands of outlets across the country (http://www.xlear.com/locatestore.aspx).
