CHEW YOUR FOOD!!!!

Are you like most people with a busy schedule who inhales their food rather than chews it correctly and actually gets a chance to enjoy it? Chewing doesn’t only allow us to enjoy our culinary delights but it really does aid in our nutrition intake.

 

Here are a few examples of why proper chewing is good for you:

  • Chewing well grinds food into small bits, allowing it to be more easily swallowed. When you swallow food without chewing enough it can actually tear and scrape your throat
  • Well chewed bits of food are more easily coated with digestive juices once in the stomach
  • Which in turn, then allows the nutrients from the chewed food to be more quickly released.

Dr Gillian McKeith, the internationally acclaimed holistic nutritionist, suggests in a recent article that the following could all be signs of inadequate chewing:

burping, farting, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel, stomach aches, heartburn, cramping.

And after all don’t we already have enough people walking around like this.
