Chewing an often overlooked part of digestion is one of the most important aspects of health. Digestion starts in your mouth! Breaking food down into very small pieces is the first step. Saliva is the next step in breaking down your food and starting the conversion to nutrients that are easy to absorb. Several glands in your mouth release saliva prior to and during chewing. This is intended to mix with your food, begin neutralizing acids and breaking down carbohydrates. The more thoroughly your food is chewed the greater the exposure it has to your saliva and the more your body will be able to absorb later on. Ensuring that carbs start breaking down in your mouth will help reduce drastic spikes in insulin and blood sugar levels. With this in mind some people even "chew" their juice by swishing it from side to side in their mouth at least six times allowing it to mix with their saliva before swallowing. Those concerned about blood sugar levels and carbohydrate digestion may consider using Chromium GFT an amazing product through nature's sunshine that helps convert carbs into usable energy helping to reduce stress on the pancreas and regulate blood sugar levels.
Deliberately chewing your food to a near liquid state and doing it slowly will help you feel full faster. No need for expensive appetite suppressants just slow down and enjoy your meal. Your body needs time to recognize when it is full and relay that feedback to your brain before you become overstuffed.
So chew... Chew... CHEW :)
