Are you tired of trying to get your kids to consume bone and meat broths for gut health? Look no further than these delicious watermelon gummies! With the warmer weather (finally!) upon us, these refreshing gummies are the perfect solution to help heal your gut and satisfy your sweet tooth.
My go-to ingredient for gut healing is Planet Paleo Gelatin (use SMC010 in the promo code at the checkout to get 10% off), which supports gut health and provides a great source of protein. With this recipe, you can make 24 gummies, each containing a substantial amount of gelatin. And the best part? Your kids will love them! They’ll think they’re indulging in a sweet treat, but little do they know they’re actually consuming something good for them.
NOTE: some kids are sensitive to high glutamate and high histamine foods and may be unable to tolerate the gelatin.
Planet Plaeo 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 signalling agents like nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB). Lycopene is also a well-known antioxidant that can neutralize free radical molecules.
