Why use a blender?
Digestion begins in the mouth. Mastication which is also the chewing process serves as the first step in your digestive process. The action of chewing helps break down our food into a fine texture, thus increasing the surface area for saliva to do its work. How you chew, together with how long you chew, can considerably impact your health including the following:
Absorb more nutrients, energy and prevents diseases.
The physical process of chewing food in your mouth helps to break down larger particles of food into smaller particles. As you chew, saliva is secreted, which covers your food with the enzymes. These enzymes digest starches and fats right in your mouth. As you release these enzymes into the throat and stomach, you further improve the digestion process helping more nutrients and energy to be absorbed into the body. With more nutrients in your body, you are also able to prevent diseases.
Maintain a healthy weight
The longer you chew your food, the more time it will take you to finish a meal. Science has shown that eating slowly can help you to eat less and, eventually, avoid gaining weight and even cause weight loss. Chewing your food longer will immediately help you regulate your portion sizes, which generally decreases calories intake. Also, it takes time for your brain to signal to your stomach that you are full, and chewing slowly makes you feel fuller.
Reduce the risk of bacterial overgrowth
When huge particles of improperly chewed food get into your stomach, it may remain undigested as it enters your intestines. The huge food particles that are not broken down properly can cause bacterial overgrowth in the colon which leads to indigestion, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramping and other digestive problems.
Chewing is good for your teeth
When you chew your food, you exercise the bones holding your teeth, which helps to keep them strong. The saliva produced while chewing is also beneficial, as it helps clear food particles from your mouth and washes away bacteria so there may be less plaque buildup and tooth decay.
Reduce dementia risk
According to research carried at Karolinska Institutet- https://ki.se/en/news/chewing-ability-linked-to-reduced-dementia-risk, elderly people who maintain and protect their dental health can chew adequately and have lesser chances of suffering the loss of mental function. This is because few teeth or bad dentures makes chewing difficult, which leads to a reduction of blood flow into the brain. This results in a higher risk of deterioration of cognitive functions, such as memory loss, decision-making, problem-solving and a greater chance of having dementia.
