Are you still looking for the secret of effortless weight loss? According to the researchers, in experiments, the heart rate of 46 people aged 21 to 69 years had increased when they chewed Chewing gum was given for chewing Natural pace.
And while chewing caused a measurable physical difference among participants of both genders and across all age groups, it was highest in men over 40, the team reported at the European Congress on Obesity in Vienna.
The combination of exercise and chewing gum can be an effective weight-control method, "the researchers said, especially in countries like Japan, where running is" the most prevalent exercise. "
Earlier studies had suggested chewing gum Increased Heart Rate (1
Volunteers completed two walks of 15 minutes each
chewing two Chewing gum pellets containing three kilocalories, in the other, for comparison, they were taken after taking a powder containing the same ingredients as the chewing gum.
The team then measured the resting and walking frequency of the two legs as well as the distance, natural speed, walking speed and number of steps performed at one hour
At a In the participants, the mean heart rate in the gum test was "significantly higher," the researchers said.
In men over 40, heart rate also increased with distance, number of steps and energy expenditure.
Although the study was not designed to explain the connection, the team suspected that it might have something to do with "cardio-motor synchronization," a natural phenomenon in which the heart beats at the rate of repetitive motion
Obesity has become a global scourge. It increases a person's risk of developing heart disease and strokes, diabetes and certain cancers.
"Effective preventive methods and treatments for obesity are required," the researchers said.
The study was published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science.
