Why Chewing Gum is a Great Body Hack
Chewing gum usually gets a bad rap, but chewing organic or sugar-free gum is actually good for you. A lot of common brands pack their gums with artificial colors and other additives that can make you weak, while those who chew natural sugars are boosting energy levels and improving digestive function.
Chewing on all the chemicals in conventional brands can lead to an imbalance of gut flora which could cause serious health problems such as leaky gut syndrome.
The act of chewing gum is a surprisingly powerful way to upgrade your body and brain. Chewing gum can help you focus, relieve stress, and even lose weight (and more than you’d think). Quality ingredients are key though - here's how chewing gums make us stronger!
PROTECT YOUR TEETH AND GET RID OF BAD BREATH
If you’re looking for a way to kill bad bacteria and improve your oral hygiene, sugar-free gum is the answer. Sugar free gum sweetened with xylitol provides an all natural ingredient that will do wonders in keeping up your dental health!
Xylitol is a great alternative if you don't want too much sugar or artificial ingredients - it's found often as toothpaste but also alcohol-free mouthwashes which help keep those pesky bugs away.
Studies show that xylitol not only kills bacteria and reduces plaque-causing microorganisms, but also protects your tooth enamel. One recent study found that chewing gum sweetened with this xylitol can reduce the amount of these harmful germs by as much as 75%.
Chewing gum is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety! Studies show that chewing lowers cortisol, your main stress hormone. It also decreases mental tension; one study on university students found that after two weeks of chewing gum daily they experienced significantly less anxious thoughts and increased alertness in the classroom setting.
Chewing gum while working can have a positive effect on the user's memory. If you want to maximize your cognitive benefits, try chewing while you work throughout the day.
A recent study has found that chewing gum can help burn an extra 300-400 calories a day for people who chew it throughout the day, which is an increase of 19% caloric burn.
Chewing gum is one of the most effective appetite suppressants. A study in 2015 found that chewing induced GLP-1 release, which significantly reduces hunger.
Gum can have a surprising amount of benefits for your health. If you're looking to lose weight, boost your memory or correct any nutrient deficiencies that may exist, popping some functional and nutritious gum into your mouth is the perfect biohack. Give it a try today!
