Chew Gum

(Yes) When you chew gum, your body assumes “you are eating”, so it produces digestive acid. Unfortunately, when there is nothing to digest in your stomach, this acid can harm your stomach lining and lead to gastritis. If you do enjoy chewing gum, choose varieties that contain natural sweeteners like xylitol and sorbitol. Avoid gums with sugar, aspartame, or cyclamate and do not chew your gum for longer than 10 minutes.
