• Chewing gum can reduce stress and boost memory. Experts don’t fully understand how chewing gum improves memory. One theory is that this improvement is due to increased blood flow to the brain caused by chewing gum.

This helps wash away harmful sugars and food debris, both of which feed bacteria in your mouth.
