Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Dr. John Bruinsma is bringing his line of sugar-free, cavity-fighting candies to the Anaheim Convention Center March 6-9, 2014 for the annual Natural Products Expo West. This event showcases the natural products industry and is attended by over 60,000 people annually. Dr. John and his famous Dr. John’s Candies will be featuring their tooth-shaped lollipops and other products at booth number 5262.
“Dr. John’s Candies has been available for a while through our website and at local dental offices, and everyday our customer list grows. We now want to make it even easier for consumers to get their favorite Dr. John’s treats and are excited about the opportunities for retail sales for our natural, sugar-free products,” said Debra Bruinsma, dental hygienist and co-founder of Dr. John’s Candies.
Dr. John’s Candies was born after Dr. Bruinsma, a Michigan dentist, and his wife Debra, a dental hygienist, became increasingly frustrated with the lack of tooth-friendly, sugar-free candies on the market to recommend to their dental patients. Having researched sweet products that would actually protect oral health, the pair decided to create what they needed on their own and Dr. John’s Candies was born.
First introduced at the 1995 American Dental Association’s Annual Meeting, Dr. John’s Candies soon went on to become one of the best-selling sugar-free candies, to the dental industry, in the country. The product line has grown and a global audience now has access to the Dr. John’s Candies products including chocolates, gum, mints, hard and soft candies, and their famous lollipops through the website http://www.drjohns.com.
The benefits behind the Dr. John’s Candies products are many. The sugar-free candies also contain natural flavors and natural colors. They are reduced-calorie treats that still taste great thanks to the natural sweetener known as Xylitol. The candies help to produce necessary saliva that enables cavity-causing bacteria to be reduced. As a dentist, Dr. John’s commitment to good oral health remains strong and he continues to develop more products including their latest tooth-shaped lollipops for sale to the general public, fellow dental professionals, and anyone that could benefit from gluten-free, dairy-free, Kosher, and sugar-free treats.
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol safe for everyone to use that originates from numerous plant sources. Dr. John’s Candies uses American-made Birch Xylitol, found to reduce bacteria in the mouth which leads to tooth decay. It increases the production of saliva to fight cavities and to ease the discomfort of dry mouth symptoms often caused by medications. Xylitol in Dr. John’s Candies makes it easy to enjoy sweet treats without harming teeth or worrying about increasing glucose levels in the body.
