Chew It Up

"To live longer, be kind to your insides. How? Each time you take a bite
of food, chew at least thirty times before swallowing. When you do, your food
is predigested in the mouth by the enzyme ptyalin, found in your saliva. As a
result, the stomach doesn't have to work as hard, and absorption of important
vitamins and nutrients occurs more readily."

-Dr. Maoshing Ni, Secrets Of Longevity
