Brilliant Brainloading™ BOOSTER #3: Increase Your Brainpower With Gum Chewing

Why It Works!  How It Helps You Brilliantly Brainload™ 

Chewing gum lowers your cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. But chewing gum doesn’t just reduce stress, it also makes you more alert and improves your performance in memory-oriented tasks.

When you are experiencing a stressful situation, chewing gum helps distract your brain and reduce the likelihood that your body will go into the primal fight-or-flight mode (which results in poor decisions and an inability to focus).
