While there are numerous products doing rounds across the internet, mewing stands unique. Mewing benefits appear over time by themselves.

All it requires is for you to nasal breathe while keeping the correct tongue posture.

The act of mewing involves maintaining a correct tongue posture wherein, you stick your tongue on to the roof of your mouth while breathing through the nose. While we have covered the mewing hassles numerous times, let us head towards the more positive side. i.e. the benefits.

First, we start with the facial structure, as seen in various mewing transformation results, a noticeable factor is how the overall face looks more sturdy. Mewing supports the skull and gives it a lift which otherwise is dull and dropped due to our sedentary lifestyle which involves less chewing, improper breathing and no mewing. Thus, when you start to mew, the facial structure gets strengthen because everything lies in a perfect position as it’s supposed to be.

Improved Facial Appearance

A strong face cut coupled with chiseled jawline makes the cut over sulky and dully face which is hanging for dear life. Mewing no doubt, improves the overall facial appearance through the facial lift, reduced dark circles, and a jawline. Mewing benefits with regards to facial appearance are simply unparalleled and can be achieved with consistent practice.

Stronger Jawlines & Cheekbones

Arguably, jawlines is the result of proper mewing. Stronger jawlines & cheekbones add to the cosmetic appeal. They make the facial structure upright and play an important role in supporting the skull.

Improved Eye Area

Our lack-luster lifestyle filled with mundane tasks and a lot of screen time just affects the eyes in more ways than what we can imagine. Mewing since it revamps the entire facial structure brings about a positive change in the eye region. Mewing if applied correctly and developed as a subconscious habit can do a lot of good to your overall facial structure including your eyes. Proper sleeping schedule and mewing will help you witness results in less than 3 months.

As mentioned earlier, our stale lifestyle with less activity does not help our body to grow to its full potential. More so, when we are hindering the progress through defying the natural position. One of the noticeable mewing benefits is palate expansion achieved through proper mewing. Mewing makes your palate larger and if done right can prevent the development of crooked teeth, often pointed out by Dr. Mew in his research studies.

Improved Swallowing

A part of correct mewing is chewing and swallowing. It’s well documented that we should chew our food over 20 times before we swallow. Correct mewing aids proper chewing and swallowing which adds to the overall health benefits.

Little to No Sleep Apnea

Sleeping becomes a task for new mewers. They find it extremely hard to rest their mind and become comfortable with this new tongue posture. However, when mewing becomes a habit, your airways open up with your tongue getting back to its natural position. Mewing emphasizes on nasal breathing which lowers sleep apnea along with congestion.

Increased Energy Levels

It has been observed that mewers have high energy levels as compared to people who don’t mew and lead an unhealthy lifestyle. While I cannot generalize this fact for each individual, science does prove that nasal breathing has a lot to say when it comes to energy levels.

Improved Overall Posture

Not just the face structure, mewing benefits include an improved overall posture since the top portion of your body is well-structured. If you head is in proper shape followed by your jawline & neck. It’s understandable that the rest of your body will follow the same suit.

Proper Breathing

By far the biggest mewing benefit is that you learn to breathe properly. Ain’t no mewing without nasal breathing. And nasal breathing is how every human must naturally breathe. By disavowing mouth breathing, half your health problems are solved because you’re getting the basics right. No more sagging jowls and health complications when you breathe through your nose.
