Studies have found that chewing gum while performing tasks can improve various aspects of brain function, including alertness, memory, understanding and decision making. In one study, people who chewed gum during tests performed 24% better in short-term memory tests and 36% better in long-term memory tests. Interestingly, some studies have found that chewing gum during tasks could be a bit of a distraction at the start, but they could help you focus for longer periods. Other studies have only found benefits during the first 15–20 minutes of a task. How chewing gum improves memory isn't fully understood. One theory is that this improvement is due to increased blood flow to the brain caused by chewing gum. Source: www.healthline.com
