New Studies Shed Light on the Surprising Benefits of Chewing Gum

A little snack just hit headlines with a smack, as new research revealed the unexpected advantages of chewing gum. Already known to freshen breath and provide a low-calorie treat between meals, new studies in the US and the UK have uncovered gum’s uncanny ability to help boost students’ test scores, counter fatigue and even lower stress levels.

While many gums contain unpronounceable ingredients and artificial sweeteners, Glee Gum offers a natural alternative for those who want to reap the benefits of chewing gum without worrying about what’s in it.

All natural, GMO-free Glee Gum comes in six flavors sweetened with organic cane sugar and brown rice syrup, and two new sugar-free flavors made with 100 percent xylitol, which has positive effects on dental health, according to the California Dental Association. Just six grams of xylitol a day (four servings of SugarFree Glee) can help to fight cavities, reduce plaque, and clear nasal passages.

Glee also sticks out as the only gum in North America made the old-fashioned
way, with chicle—a tree sap harvested sustainably from Central American rainforests. The chewy texture of other gums comes entirely from synthetic materials, but Glee uses chicle as an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest, giving trees more value standing than chopped down for lumber.

Glee Gum is made by Providence-based, Verve, Inc., an independent, certified woman-owned business dedicated to creating environmentally and socially
responsible products.
