Abstract

Abstract Research has shown that standard chewing gum can affect aspects of both attention and memory. The present study examined the effects of Think Gum ®, a caffeinated-herbal chewing gum, on both concentration and memory using a series of paper-based and online testing. Compared to standard chewing gum and a no-gum control, chewing caffeinated-herbal gum during testing improved aspects of memory, but did not affect concentration. The findings suggest that caffeinated-herbal chewing gum is an effective memory aid.
