If you chew gum often between your meals, it is very possible that you are consuming your digestive enzyme reserves, so when next time you eat your meal; you won’t have sufficient digestive enzymes to fully digest your meal. It is conceivable then, that frequent gum chewing gum can provide the perfect backdrop for the growth of digestive disorder over time.
