The saliva has another function is the provision of food easy passage through the esophagus. People, when they feel that it is difficult to swallow dry food, beginning to drink its water. Here it should not be done as you digestive process breaking — in the stomach are the enzymes that stand out in your mouth. In addition, washing down the food you spend less time chewing food, as a result, in stomach large chunks of food fall, which are hard to digest.
What are some reasons to chew well, aduwo the mouth have receptors that are responsible for appetite and for the recognition of food.

Of course this habit in itself is harmful and wrong. However, it is harmful because the absorption of food begins to occur in the "autopilot". This suggests that even if you realized that you need to chew food thoroughly, and decided exactly what to do, then on the machine you continue to chew like before. Therefore, it is not necessary during a meal to distract from this process attention. Until not learned how to chew food, it is better not to distract yourself so that grabs attention.
American naturopath G. Shelton to teach from early childhood the child how to chew, recommends to exclude from a diet of potatoes and gruel. Children should be given solid food — slices of vegetables and fruits. If you chew food the child is not able to, then you need to wait.
Older children need to explain that chew on so that the pieces of food were crushed to a pulp.
When to drink water?Water do not drink, not only during meals but also directly to the reception and after the meal. The gastric juice dissolves with water, as it leaves the stomach earlier than food, and carries with it the necessary for the digestion enzymes. Water drink at least 10 minutes before eating.

In order so that they began to germinate until he was in the ground, nature has provided a defense mechanism: they contain hindering the process of growth inhibitors. But if the seed moistened with water, the inhibitors go to water, and the seed starts biological processes. It turns out that soaked nuts and seeds several times faster absorbed, they have more nutrients. This rule applies to the grain. But, of course, you still have to chew. This is especially true of small seeds (flax, sesame, etc.), if you swallow them whole, then they are not digestible.
