We see you, you beautiful yoga-going, green juice drinking, FitBit wearer. Reading food labels. Taking the stairs. Cutting vegetables into elaborate shapes to disguise them for your kids. And, we offer you with a big, virtual high five.
You’re fighting the good fight to lead a healthy life. It’s a noble pursuit and no mean feat, especially when neon drive-thru signs light your way home and the pizza delivery guy’s number just might be on speed dial in your phone. But while you dutifully swap Slurpees for smoothies, have you ever happened to check what’s inside your chewing gum?
Studies have shown that gum can be a small but mighty (and mighty tasty) part of a healthy lifestyle– from curbing cravings and helping with calorie reduction to aiding with focus, concentration, memory, and even cavity prevention. Most mainstream gum, however, is chock-full of artificial, unpronounceable, and unappetizing ingredients.
Yup. Flip over any pack of conventional gum, and you’ll most likely find that it contains artificial flavors, colors (like Blue 2 Lake or Red 40), sweeteners (like Aspartame or Acesulfame K), preservatives (like BHT), and 100% synthetic gum base for chewy texture.
Not Glee Gum! As our friends from Naturally Savvy show in the comparison below, Glee instead uses natural flavors, colors (like red beet and beta carotene), sweeteners (like the Fair Trade cane sugar in Classic Glee Gum and xylitol in Sugar-Free Glee), and natural, chicle gum base. No additives. No preservatives. Just delicious gum.
So, we invite you to change what you chew! And we also say cheers to healthy, wonderful YOU.
