    gum or candy?

    As a nurse, I sometimes cannot drink as much as I would like and have a rather dry mouth...are there any approved candy or gums that I can use that won't knock me off the primal wagon?
    thanks!

    The cheapest gum I find that doesn't cause tummy issues is Stride. I don't buy spree gum because it is more expensive. I chew a packof gum a day (mostly at work sitting in a desk). I use to chew orbit and trident but can only have 1 piece of that gum without causing sugar cravings. Stride doesnt' have maltitol and has less sorbitol than other gums. Stay away from sugar free candy during the day. This will not help with a dry mouth.

    if there is a Whole Foods by you, or some other health food store, they usually have gums that are better

    Try to find a gum or candy that has Xylitol as the ONLY sweeter (most of them add asparti-poisen or sugar etc)
    Xylitol is very good for dry mouth

    You will probably have to order it online though, I never see it in shops
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    I think gum is better than candy.

    I chew 5 gum on occasion. It's probably not Primal, but it sure does taste good! Vortex and Solstice are my faves.
