I'm wondering how long does it take sorbitol, xylitol, and aspartame to leave your system?

Fast enough: Some of my teammates will disagree, but i'm unimpressed with the much-touted dangers of these three sweeteners. Some folks do seem allergic to aspertame. If you want to believe the scare stories and still eat sweet stuff while avoiding refined sugar and corn syrup, rediscover natural fresh fruit. Especially, don't let anybody sell you a "purge" to rid of you of past artificial sweeteners.

Sorbitol and xylitol: are types of sugar that don't promote tooth decay. Aspartame is a sweet tasting food protein that is used as a sugar substitute. All three are normal food substances and your body metabolizes (burns) them just as it does all other foods. They are not dangerous and don't need to be flushed away. You're OK and don't need to worry about them.
