About this deal

Animal studies have suggested that aspartame is a chemical carcinogen in rodents and that prenatal exposure to aspartame increases cancer risk in rodent offspring ( 12).

Although this condition is rare, some studies have found a link between excessive chewing and TMD ( 51, 52). Chewing gum has been linked to headaches Although the genus Mentha comprises more than 25 species, the one in most common use is peppermint. [5] While Western peppermint is derived from Mentha × piperita, Chinese peppermint, or bohe, is derived from the fresh leaves of M. haplocalyx. [6] [7] [8] M. × piperita and M. haplocalyx are both recognized as plant sources of menthol and menthone, and are among the oldest herbs used for both culinary and medicinal products. [5] [9] Botany [ edit ] Peppermint flowers An 1887 illustration from Köhlers; Medicinal Plants The “gum base” is the part of the gum that gives it the chewy feeling you experience. Although most gums in the old days were originally made from chicle made from the sap of the sapodilla tree, that changed in the 20th century as mainstream gum manufacturers searched for more affordable ingredients. They began using a long list of synthetic and petroleum-derived ingredients like polyisobutylene (a petroleum-based rubber used to make the inner tubes of tires) and polyvinyl acetate, also known as white glue. If you have heartburn or GERD, it’s probably best to steer clear of mint-flavored products to avoid the irritation that can come along with it.Peppermint is an incredibly pungent—almost spicy—herb. (Its name is starting to seem a bit more fitting, huh?) And though peppermint is perhaps the better known of the two, it’s actually a natural hybrid of spearmint and water mint. This explains why it is so much more potent than its counterpart. Because peppermint is a mix of two types of mint, it contains a higher content of menthol. The results of another small study suggest that chewing gum while walking could help burn more calories ( 38). The benefits of chewing gum on memory have been shown to last only while you’re chewing the gum. However, habitual gum chewers may benefit from feeling more alert and less stressed throughout the day ( 22, 34). Summary According to the FDA, consuming amounts of aspartame that are within the daily intake recommendations isn’t thought to be harmful ( 15). There are a wide variety of recipes and how to videos available online that will help you make your own gum at home. Most recipes combine a sweetener, a flavor, and a gum base. The sweeteners are often powdered sugar, corn or rice syrup, or stevia. The gum base might be sorbitol powder or beeswax.

However, the overall results are mixed. Some studies have reported that chewing gum does not affect appetite or energy intake over the course of a day ( 39, 40).

S2CID 26626639. Its strong sweet, mint flavour makes it the perfect feature flavour in desserts, cakes and savoury dishes, as well as sauces, pastries and biscuits. A little goes a long way with this robust herb, so it is recommended to start with a small amount, and add more according to the desired flavour. Try adding it to salad dressings and marinades, jams and preserves, and glazes and syrups. It also adds a wonderful flavour to poultry stuffing and meat-based dishes.


Many people find that simply avoiding the foods that trigger their heartburn is enough to eliminate the problem. Others benefit from elevating their head during sleep. R. Eccles (1994). "Menthol and Related Cooling Compounds". J. Pharm. Pharmacol. 46 (8): 618–630. doi: 10.1111/j.2042-7158.1994.tb03871.x. PMID 7529306. S2CID 20568911.

Peppermint gum helps calm the nervous system, relieving stress and anxiety, and promotes restful sleep. The chemical composition of the essential oil from peppermint ( Mentha × piperita L.) was analyzed by GC/FID and GC-MS. The main constituents were menthol (40.7%) and menthone (23.4%). Further components were (±)- menthyl acetate, 1,8- cineole, limonene, beta-pinene, and beta-caryophyllene. [50] Research and health effects [ edit ] Only 2% aromatic oil is extracted from the leaves and this is used as anticattarahal, antiseptic, expectorant and decongestant.Some research also suggests that chewing gum could reduce your appetite, which could prevent you from overeating ( 35, 36). It can tolerate both highly fertile organic soils to very poor infertile soils. Does prefer full sun but can handle part shade. Peppermint essential oil: Peppermint essential oil is a potent option for treating nausea through aromatherapy. Add a few drops of high-quality peppermint essential oil to a diffuser or a bowl of steaming water, and inhale the scent. The aromatic compounds in peppermint can stimulate the limbic system (nerves and networks in the brain), promoting relaxation and reducing stress-induced nausea.

Artificial colors, which may trigger food allergies and are also possibly carcinogenic based on animal studies.

This is because sugar is digested by the bad bacteria in your mouth, causing an increase in the amount of plaque on your teeth and tooth decay over time ( 49).Medicinal uses of peppermint have not been approved as effective or safe by the US Food and Drug Administration. [58] With caution that the concentration of the peppermint constituent pulegone should not exceed 1% (140mg), peppermint preparations are considered safe by the European Medicines Agency when used in topical formulations for adult subjects. [59] [60] Diluted peppermint essential oil is safe for oral intake when only a few drops are used. [53] [59] In the United States, Oregon and Washington produce most of the country's peppermint, [38] the leaves of which are processed for the essential oil to produce flavorings mainly for chewing gum and toothpaste.
