The truth about chewing gum.

Chewing gum may be RUINING your digestive system, especially your pancreas.

The moment you unwrap a piece of gum and toss it into your mouth, the brain is alerted that the digestive process is about to begin.
This is called the cephalic stage, the body anticipates oncoming food and releases saliva to help masticate the upcoming food, then gastric, pancreatic and biliary fluids surge to further break it down.

But then, nothing comes. 🤷🏻‍♀️

And yet your digestive system is activated. If it happens often on an empty stomach, your pancreas and bile might threw a tantrum and say ‘screw this’. ‘You keep fooling me, next time I won’t do my work on demand. ‘ - not talking*

When we take advantage of our bodies, take it for granted and don’t treat it with respect, it will start ‘resenting’ us with all kind of functional health errors.
