New from Lotte, the company that brought us gum based on that game with the guy who wore the hat, and uh, cookies like those little gray Australian things with chocolate, comes a gum that is supposed to improve our memory.
It’s called Ha ni Tsukinikui Gum — Kioku Ryoku o Ijisuru Type (Gum which Doesn’t Stick to Teeth — Memory Maintaining Type). Sure, it’s an absurdly long name for something intended for people with memory problems, but you’ll never forget its haunting spearmint flavor…or was it wintergreen?
The gum is available in both stick and pellet type to satiate whatever your initial chewing sensation preference may be. And in addition to being easy on the teeth for those with dentures or platinum grills, each gum is loaded with ginkgo biloba extract, the elements of which are said to help the brain remember stuff.
You’re probably thinking back to your kindergarten biology class’s unit on digestion -- whereby food is mainly absorbed into the body through that those thingies in your gut, but some digestion does occur on your mouth.
So while this gum could have some effect, that company whose name escapes me at the moment says that it should be used in conjunction with a proper diet and exercise regiment to truly help maintain a healthy memory.
It may not be a medical breakthrough in neuroscience, but if you’re a regular gum chewer anyway, it couldn’t hurt to give a little boost to the ‘ol noggin. It’s on sale now for around 140 yen a pack nationwide.
