In order to have better self-control, all you have to do is gargle sugar water.
Gargling Sugar Water Can Boost Your Self-Control
The finding came from a study at the University of Georgia.
The participants were divided into two groups - half rinsed their mouths with lemonade sweetened with sugar...and the other group with Splenda-sweetened lemonade.
"Researchers used to think you had to drink the glucose and get it into your body to give you the energy to (have) self control. After this trial, it seems that glucose stimulates the simple carbohydrate sensors on the tongue. This, in turn, signals the motivational centers of the brain where our self-related goals are represented. These signals tell your body to pay attention."
