Mastication

Chew on this... Chew your food for healthy digestion.  I figure that the highly touted micronizing of supplements make for better absorption. Micronization is the process of reducing the average diameter of a solid material's particles.  The label of my BCAAs (branched chained amino acids) container say it is Micronized for better absorption.  The brand also charges a premium for the process.  Food substances taking longer to digest will impact overall function.  The body spends so much energy and resources in the process of digestion.  A good start is when you saliva is used as an enzyme to help break down carbohydrates, especially if it is grains.  The chewing process helps us eat slowly thus taking us longer to finish as opposed to inhaling food.  It usually takes signals in the stomach 15 minutes to register to the brain the feeling fullness.  This little tip can add to your arsenal of weight management weapons.  

I say micronize everything in your mouth!  Start the digestive process right by really chewing your food well. 

Don't worry, the extra masticating will not make your tongue hairy.

Eat right, sleep well, lift things up!
