Chewing Gum Improves Concentration Level

Chewing Gum Improves Concentration LevelChewing gum can help a person concentrate on a topic for a longer period. A study, published in the British Journal of Psychology, was carried out on this by a group of researchers from Cardiff University.

Researchers affirmed that chewing gum can improve concentration even when a person is undergoing an audio memory task. It has already been established that chewing gum improves concentration during video related task.

But it is now that it has been found that chewing gum is beneficial in improving concentration during audio memory task. In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers carried out an experiment in which they enrolled 38 people.

The total number of volunteers was split into two sub groups. One of the groups was allowed to chew gums and other was not. Each and every individual was assigned a task of 30 minutes in which they have to hear numbers from one to nine.

The numbers were listed in random orders and the test was to see how fast a person is able to detect a sequence of odd and even numbers. After assessing the result, the study researchers reached at a conclusion that the group which chewed gums was able to detect the sequence quickly than the other group.
