Pur Gum Review (Aspartame And Gluten Free)

Some people seem to be big fans of gum. I for one have always been a huge fan of gum and used to chew it all the time! That was until about a year ago when I started reading about all the crazy ingredients that goes into it. Most gums are gluten-free but have a lot of bad ingredients you do not want going into your body. I completely abandoned gum and really did begin to miss it. That was until I came across a company called Pur Gum! All there gum is naturally gluten-free and is free of all the bad ingredients like aspartame, GMO's and refined sugar as well.



Why aspartame is bad and why you should avoid it:
Aspartame is a man-made, synthetic sweetener found in most sugar-free gums, beverages, and candies. This food additive has been linked to symptoms including (but not limited to) headaches, dizziness, mood change, vomiting/nausea, and change in heart rate. Even though most people do not swallow their gum, the ingredients are still absorbed in the body and can have these effects on people.

What makes Pur Gum different:
PÜR GUM is completely aspartame-free. Sweetened instead with the natural goodness of xylitol, PÜR GUM gets its great taste from Mother Nature herself! A substance produced by corn, Xylitol has been found to aide in digestion, and even prevent tooth decay. Not only that, it is completely safe for pregnant moms and children of any age. PÜR GUM has no chemicals, no aftertaste and no aspartame. 

PÜR Gum is: 
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan
  • Non-gmo
  • Nut-free
  • Diabetic friendly
  • Dairy-free

What it's sweetened with:
Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables looks and tastes like sugar. It's good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, promotes good health and has none of the negative side effects of white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Xylitol looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, and has the same sweetness as sugar, making it the ideal natural sugar replacement. Each PÜR GUM contains 1 gram of Xylitol and only 2.4 calories per gram, and is slowly absorbed as a complex carbohydrate. Xylitol is also a dentist's dream; it reverses all of the destructive effects of sugar on oral health by inhibiting growth of the bad bacteria associated with declining oral health. This dental superhero helps to restore proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth, inhibits plaque formation and prevents tooth decay by 80 percent. Made in Switzerland, PÜR Gum offers consumers the highest quality ingredients available. 
 
Different flavors:
  • Wintergreen
  • Pomegranate Mint
  • Spearmint
  • Peppermint

My favorite things about it as a teenager:
I'm a teenager so I can say I have tried a lot of gum over the years! I've tried all the main brand companies and a lot of the natural gum companies as well. The one thing I noticed with the natural gum companies is that the flavor would run out very quickly after chewing it. Seriously within like 2-3 minutes. But with Pur Gum I never had this problem and and had the consistent flavor a lot longer than any other natural gum I've tried. I personally have really enjoyed this brand of gum as a teenager and I would really recommend it to anyone wanting to avoid aspartame.
  • It has lots of flavor that is long lasting unlike some natural gluten-free brands.
  • There are 4 different types of minty flavors to enjoy!
  • It is aspartame free which nearly every other main brand gum contains!
  • It's gluten-free and non-gmo which means it's as pure of a gum you can get!
