Probably everyone in my childhood my parents spoke about what is important to chew your food.
Improving the immune system
Scientists have discovered that the process of chewing stimulates the action of a certain type of immune cells called TH17 lymphocytes. These cells protect us from bacterial and fungal infections.
Help in weight loss
Studies show – if the process of chewing food takes twice the time than usual, it allows you to control the portions and natural way to reduce calorie intake.
The brain takes about twenty minutes to send a signal to the stomach of saturation. This fact explains the results of the study. People eating at a slow pace, faster felt the fullness and ultimately consumed ten percent less calories than those subjects who were in a hurry to quickly put away the food.
Digestion is actually a difficult task for our body, requires a lot of energy, especially if you digest poorly chewed food. The process of chewing breaks down food into small pieces and partially liquefies it, making it easier to digest. In the end, the stomach works more efficiently. In addition, slow chewing of food helps to maximize absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
