Dr. Jill’s Commentary
I find Xylitol to be one of the most steady and safe biofilm busters for the nasal and sinus passages. It’s so stealth in its action, my patients can often use it early in their treatment plan without aggravating symptoms. I add this to antimicrobial treatments for patients with persistent MARCoNS or MRSA on nasal swab testing.
Even though it’s kind and soothing to your nose, it’s not kind to the bad guys of the biofilm.
As I write in my book, Break the Mold, “Xylitol is a biofilm buster, meaning that it breaks up the slime layer protecting mold and its co-conspirators. Remember, once you’re exposed to a water-damaged building, the bad dudes that thrived in that sick building have moved into your sinuses. They survive in a biofilm, and it’s literally a film of slime mixed with bad-guy microbes. While antifungals work on bad-guy mold, and colloidal silver works on bad-guy bacteria, xylitol chips away at the slime they’re hiding in.”
Xylitol also has anti-Strep activity. And to sweeten the deal, it leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste on the back of your tongue after using it intranasally, even though it’s not sugar.
