Several previous studies have shown that chewing gum can improve the ability of the brain in terms of memory. However, recent research actually said the opposite.
The findings, published in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology showed that chewing gum can damage short-term memory.
Research conducted at the University of Cardiff in the UK is a test of 40 volunteers to find out the effect of the short-term memory with or without chewing gum.
Volunteers are asked to remember the sequence of letters and numbers randomized chewing gum. The results showed that the gum is chewed the volunteers seemed to cause a disruption in the ability to remember.
Short-term memory loss can be combated by increasing iron intake through food, such as tofu, spinach, pinto beans, and lean red meat. Apples and blueberries are also well taken because it is rich in antioxidants. In addition, a glass of red wine is also good to sharpen your brain round.
