From time to time I enjoy a piece of Trident Sugarless Gum....and now I feel even better about chewing a little gum from time to time.  Chewing gum may not be the prettiest habit, but according to new research, chomping on some gum is actually good for your brain ... AND your love life!

Chewing gum actually boosts thinking and alertness. It also stimulates eight different parts of the brain that make your reaction time 10% faster than usual!

And an added bonus ... it boosts arousal! Just make sure you chew it discreetly – that means no bubbles, no snapping, and with your mouth closed – or you might negate all its benefits! (Cosmo)
