i chew gum sometimes...there was a scientific research study on chewing gum whilst performing intellectual tasks and helps with concentration apparently(i will try to find the research study at a more decent hour)!!!

i do the exact same thing...chewing gum has some effect on me whether its placebo or not...????

also...i dont do many exercises for my face...so i chew gum to give the jaw a exercise too!!!!

i noticed quite a few top pro bodybuilders chew gum in their workouts....???

Umm, i do, it's phycosomatic, but i'm sure there's more to it, IE mastication releasing hormones, don't know. but theres got to be something more to it.

It's good for you. Saliva produced from chewing gum helps prevent and treat indigestion. also there is some research that it helps with weight loss. I will try and dig it out later on.

I like it, seems to take the tention out of lifting, going to stick with it.

I have seen Arnie chew it too in some of his old workout vids at Golds Gym!

it focuses your brain definitely... ive seen documentaries on it

the brian likes repetitive actions, it performs better under repetitive circumstances...

thats why its almost as hard to give up the ACTION of smoking as it is the INGESTION of the nicotine...

It's not good or bad... Depends if you need to give your body digestion triggering signals or not... If you are bulking up and eating so much food you feel bloated then yeah it might help with triggering the production of excess stomach acid... Otherwise probably no benefit - especially if you suffer acid reflux - then it's deffo not a good thing.

EDIT: Like peter says it help blood flow to brain so it is also good for studying or exams.
