On our hunt for a healthier sweetener — one that wouldn’t cause cavities and wasn’t synthetic or chemical-heavy — we ended up discovering the power of agave. Used for centuries as a flavour enhancer and a natural remedy, it made it a great fit for the health-conscious RADIUS toothpaste formula. 

Organic Blue Agave Syrup is stored by the body as insulin and breaks down to mostly fructose, making it low on the glycemic index. Agave has not been known to cause cavities and is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron, offering great teeth-strengthening benefits. It has a mild, honey-like flavour and consistency, is vegan friendly, and won’t leave a funny aftertaste in your mouth, like stevia.
