Sugar free gum has been shown to prevent cavities and reduce bacteria in the mouth, good for your teeth and good for anyone who gets up close to you as your breath should smell sweeter, partly from the lack of bacteria and of course a quick chew up minty gum is perfect before a date or an interview to give you that minty freshness.
Chewing Gum is also good for stress and concentration it has been shown, perhaps this is why kids like to chew it in schools to help them concentrate on class then,perhaps schools should remove their bans on it?
Chewing gum is also said to be good for digestion by making your stomach think that more food is coming as you are still chewing and salivating, it means extra stomach acid is produced breaking down food more quickly which can also help with weight loss.
Chewing gums with active ingredients though are an increasingly popular way of administering supplements and other beneficial ingredients, even medicine.
We aren’t quite at the point yet when you can have a whole meal in a piece of gum as in Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but it is amazing what you can do with a stick of gum. Caffeine gum is used in the army and by civilians and one stick gives the same caffeine as a cup of coffee but much more conveniently, especially if you are a soldier on guard duty trying to stay awake or you are driving home and don’t want to have to pull over to buy a coffee and wait for it to cool down before getting on the road again. Ginseng and Guarana chewing Gums have similar energy giving effects to caffeine but are slightly healthier.
Nicotine gum helps those trying to give up smoking and some gums are used to deliver appetite suppressing drugs.
If you want a truly healthy gum though choose one that is sugar free and contains natural ingredients, this includes Green Tea chewing gum which is an anti-oxidant and Acai berries gum which are even higher in anti-oxidants and have a host of other benefits.
Acai berry chewing gum is great for giving you a boost like caffeine but naturally and which wont lead to a come down later on in fact boosting your stamina. Acai also boosts your digestive system, adding to the effect chewing gum naturally has and at the same time the Acai is great for boosting your immune system, use Acai gum in the winter when there are coughs and colds going around.
