At Eace Gum it is essential that there is documentation of the functionality of our products.
Therefore, we only use nutrients whose properties have been approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and where there are scientific studies demonstrating their efficacy. On this page you can read about a wide range of scientific studies about chewing gum and the ingredients we put in Eace Gum.
CHEWING GUM INCREASES CONCENTRATION
Many studies have shown that chewing gum boosts mental performance. Cognitive functions such as concentration, memory and reaction time were improved when subjects chewed gum. The boost is thought to come from the increased blood flow to the brain that comes through the physical process of chewing - some studies showed as much as a 25-40% increase. This also increases the amount of oxygen in the brain, which improves memory and other cognitive functions.IMPROVES ALERTNESS
In addition to memory, many studies have also shown that chewing gum can increase alertness. The chewing motion in the jaw is thought to stimulate nerves and parts of the brain associated with arousal, in addition to increasing blood flow. This can help people feel more awake or stay awake longer. Mint-flavoured chewing gum is thought to be particularly useful for this purpose.
VITAMIN CHEWING GUM CAN HELP REDUCE VITAMIN DEFICIENCY
Joshua Lambert, Professor of Food Science at the University of Agricultural Sciences at Pennsylvania State University, studied vitamin-enriched chewing gum for the first time in 2018. The conclusion was that chewing gum - a pleasant habit for many - may be a strategy to reduce vitamin deficiencies around the world.CHEWING GUM PROTECTS TEETH
The American Dental Association recommends chewing sugar-free gum for 20 minutes after meals, as it has been shown to reduce plaque, promote tooth enamel, reduce cavities and reduce gingivitis. The reason has to do with increased saliva flow, which reduces acid on your teeth that causes decay. Always make sure your gum is sugar-free, as sugary gums can actually contribute to acid build-up.
FLUORIDE AND DENTAL HEALTH
You probably know fluoride from your toothpaste. Fluoride is added to the vast majority of toothpastes as part of preventive dental care in Denmark. It has been well documented in numerous studies over the years that fluoride has a positive and important effect in preventing tooth decay. Fluoride has been shown to be so effective against tooth decay that, for ethical reasons, researchers are no longer allowed to carry out trials in which a control group of children brushes their teeth with toothpaste without fluoride.
There is a correlation between the use of fluoride, the reduction of dental caries and the increase of dental fluorosis. The high presence of fluoride in saliva after use of fluoride chewing gum may be significant in preventing caries.CHEWING GUM AGAINST STRESS AND ANXIETY
Studies have shown that chewing gum can help relieve nervous energy and make you feel calmer. Eating some chewing gum can be a good substitute for nervous habits, such as nail biting and leg shaking, when you're feeling stressed. This is backed up by studies showing that chewing gum helped reduce the stress hormone cortisol in many test subjects.
EFFECT OF GREEN TEA EXTRACT ON THE BREATH
The active components in green tea are called catechins. Catechins are a series of polyphenols known for their effect in reducing bad breath. Several studies have documented this effect. Amongst others the scientific article below with tests of catechin addition to chewing gum and their effect to break down bad breath compounds like CH3SH.CAFFEINE IN CHEWING GUM
Chewing gum is a very effective way to absorb caffeine. There are scientific studies showing a Tmax (time for highest concentration to enter blood plasma) of 0.73 h compared to a Tmax of 1.42 h for a capsule containing the same dose of caffeine - indicating a buccal absorption of caffeine - and thus a faster effect than intake via pills/capsules and energy drinks.
