Healthy Gummy Recipe
Here is a great gummy recipe that I posted on my other blog. Who knew that gummy snacks made from healthy gelatin can be beneficial to your whole body. They are full of many minerals, nutrients, and of course goodness!
These gummy snacks have many nutritional benefits for your body. Gelatin is a key player in this recipe, it is broth powder in a concentrated form. I use the Great Lakes Gelatin which comes from grass fed animals that have healthy animal bones. Do not be scarred of this because your body actually benefits from healthy bone products. I specifically use grass fed gelatin because I am a health conscious person. The Great Lakes Gelatin that I buy is for joint care. It has 20 amino acids, which your body needs from food, 20 mg of sodium, and is a great source of protein, 6g of protein. The gelatin sold at your local market may be from sick and hormone fed animals. You definitely do not want that type. Like I said look for gelatin that comes from grass fed animals.
Gelatin has many beneficial components to it. It can help with digestion when taken with meat or just on it's own, it can help to increase protein in your diet, is high in minerals, and has many the amino acids which we are all deficient in.
Minerals are great for our health and development. They are great for bones, joints, and other process in the body. Minerals help you grow and helps your body function as a whole. They help with bone formation, nerve functions, hormones, and help you stay healthy.
Amino acids are another vital part to our bodies. Did you know that our bodies can not produce amino acids on it's own? This is why we really need to find good sources of amino acids and try to ingest them on a regular basis. Amino acids are building blocks to our tissues. They are great for muscle strength and can boost your immunity.
Gelatin overall can help your hair be thicker, nails stronger, and skin more elastic which reduces wrinkles. It's also great to reduce your chances of cancer and great for your joints. Give it a try and you will reap the benefits!
This recipe also incorporates fresh juice which has many nutrients for you like a high content of vitamin C. Vitamin C is great for your immunity and can protect you from the common cold.
Gummy bears that are bought from the store are full of chemicals and preservatives. They contain GMO corn syrup, which can be cancer causing, are high in sugar, and contain unhealthy gelatin which can cause an array of problems for your body.
So instead of buying gummy bears from your local store, which are full of junk, why not make your own that are made from fresh juice and healthy gelatin.
This recipe is easy to make and requires little effort.
Think of this recipe as an everyday vitamin gummy. Hope you enjoy and rate it!
