Why is it that our mouth waters when we see some delicious food item????????

Expert Answer:

Mouth watering is nothing but release of saliva. When we see or smell tasty food our enzymes get activated and before the food reaches the stomach, saliva breaks down food into the buccal cavity with the help of salivary amylase.
