The reason sugar alcohols like xylitol are not recommended for human consumption is because of the two-fold metabolic xylitol side effects that burden the body and lead to weight gain:
- First, because the body cannot digest them properly the non-metabolized portion ferments and creates a favorable environment for harmful bacteria to colonize. Exacerbating yeast problems, many people will also experience constipation, gas/bloating and diarrhea.
- Second, as with all toxins, because the body cannot digest them sufficiently precious metabolic resources are wasted in an attempt to clear it out of your digestive system and can thus cause unwanted weight gain.
