THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE EASIEST AND TASTIEST WAY TO HEAL THE GUT!
Many of us know the benefits of bone and meat broths in helping heal the gut. The number one challenge for most of us is getting the broth into our children. With summer here, despite my best hopes slurping on bone broth is just not going to happen.
My biggest love at the moment is Great Lakes Gelatin which is a wonderful way to support gut healing and is a great source of protein.
These watermelon gummies are Delicious and Nutritious and are a staple in our house in the summer. I made 24 gummies using this recipe which means that eating 4 gummies provides one whole tablespoon of gelatin – My heart does a dance when I see my kids devouring these, thinking that they are having a treat. One of life’s sweet little victories!
GREAT LAKES GELATIN is loaded with amino acids including glycine, lysine and proline which have been shown to speed up cell growth, build connective tissue and support liver detoxification. Phenolic compounds in WATERMELON —including flavonoids, carotenoids, and triterpenoids—make this fruit a choice for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits. If you had to pick a single nutrient from this anti-inflammatory and antioxidant category that has put watermelon on the map, that nutrient would be lycopene which is a well-documented inhibitor of many inflammatory processes, including the production of pro-inflammatory messaging molecules, the expression of enzymes like cyclo-oxygenase and lipoxygenase that can lead to increased inflammatory response, and the activity of molecular signaling agents like nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB). Lycopene is also a well-known antioxidant, with the ability to neutralize free radical molecules.
