When your teacher told you to spit your gum out during class, little did she know that chewing gum actually stimulates the brain! A major study was conducted to analyze if and how the repetitive chewing motion of consuming gum actually helps in the mental processes in the brain.
Seventy-five subjects were studied to see whether or not chewing gum stimulates the brain.
After dividing the group into three smaller groups, one that chewed gum, one that pretended to chew gum using a chewing motion and a control group that did not chew gum at all. Each group was then given several tests that evaluated their ability to learn and remember information. They included memory tests of words, pictures or everyday information like a telephone number.
improve your exam results!
We would like to tell you more about how students can improve their results by changing their eating habits before they have an exam. Fruit is the ultimate brain fuel!
You can actually improve your test results simply by changing your eating habits between waking up and doing the exam. The big trick is to consume fruit effectively. Have only fruit but as much as you want before you do your test and avoid the brain blocking foods white flour, refined white sugar, meat and dairy.
Check it out yourself once and you'll notice that you can think much more clear and faster if you have only eaten the right and light stuff before the exam. Afterwards you can have whatever you want!
