|Chewing Food more helps in shedding weight!|
|According to a new study: Chewing each mouthful of food for longer duration might help to reduce weight.
Volunteers who chewed each mouthful 40 times ate 12 % less food than those chewed just 15 times.
It is thought that chewing for a long time checks over eating as the brain is given more time to receive signals from the stomach that it is full. It also lowers the level of Ghrelin, a hormaone that controls hunger.
Chewing breaks food down from large particles into smaller particles that are more easily digested and better absorbed.
Saliva too has digestive enzymes which help in digesting food. More the time saliva has on the food the better it is and less stress on the intestines.
