Chewing gum has been labeled as unhealthy for many years. Most of the regular products contain too much sugar and can cause cavities. However, not all chewing gum products are bad. In fact, some healthy gum products may provide benefits to your health.
Natural chewing gum contains ingredients that will not damage your teeth. Ingredients such as Xylitol and Peelu may help cleaning your teeth, decreasing tooth decay and dental plaque acid production. Research has showed that regular use of xylitol may reduce dental cavities by as much as 80% and may prevent gingivitis as well.
Additionally, healthy chewing gum provides fresh breathe and can help whitening of teeth. Jam muscles may get stronger from chewing regularly and some gums even have ingredients that can improve your dental health. Many dentists now widely recommend chewing sugar-free gum to their patients.
Lastly, chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying. You need to try it to believe it. Chewing gum while cutting onions prevents tears by forcing you to breathe through your mouth. This disperses the irritant so that a significantly smaller amount reaches the lachrymal glands, preventing them from being irritated enough to release tears.
