A chewing gum which the makers say can help enhance the size, shape and tone of the breasts has proved to be a big hit in Japan.
Chewing Gum for Larger Breasts
A company called Good One LtD., claims their B2UP bubble gum can enhance women’s breast size due to one of the ingredients, the Pueraria Mirifica root that is indigenous to Thailand and Burma. The company said tests carried out by Thailand’s Chulalongkorn University found that Pueraria Mirfica can enhance breast size up to 80 percent. “Unlike dietary supplements taken in a pill once a day, the gum means that it is constantly bombarding your system and restoring the muscle tissue that keeps breasts healthy,” a B2UP spokeswoman said in a press release.
Chewing Gum for Weight Loss
Last year researchers from Syracuse University demonstrated that a hormone might be able to be delivered in a chewing gum to help people lose weight. The hormone, called human PYY, helps regulate appetite and energy and is released into the bloodstream when people eat or exercise, according to the researchers. When given PYY intravenously, the hormone acted as an appetite suppressant in obese and non-obese study participants, causing them to consume less calories than those who weren’t given the hormone.
Researchers are still trying to figure out how to get the PYY to travel through the digestive system without getting destroyed, so the next step is to find a way to insert it into chewing gum to use similarly to nicotine-laced gum.
“If we are successful, PYY-laced gum would be a natural way to help people lose weight,” lead researcher Robert Doyle said according to Sciencedaily.com.
