Did you know?! Chewing Gum

  • Helps alleviate bad breath by producing more saliva, which helps reduce odor-causing bacteria in the mouth.
  • Saliva also helps balance the acid levels in our stomachs, so chewing gum can help alleviate heartburn. Because of this process, chewing gum may also alleviate nausea.
  • Replacing unnecessary sweets with sugar-free gum can help stave off hunger and keep you from eating junk, which can help with your weight-loss goals.
  • May improve memory and concentration. The theory is that chewing stimulates blood flow to the brain, which allows for better focus.
  • Other studies show that chewing gum reduces stress hormones, so the act of chewing may be beneficial to those who are anxious or stressed.

Just remember to keep it sugar-free, mix it up with some variety so you don’t get bored, and be aware of sugar cravings or bloating, which can happen when having too much gum. Happy Chewing!
