3 Health Benefits of Cafe Latte Gummies
#1: Enhances Skin Elasticity
Gelatin does much more for you than provide the base for these delicious gummy treats.
In fact, gelatin is made by cooking collagen — which is an essential component of your connective tissue.
Your connective tissue can be found throughout your body, providing support and structure to your bones, joints, and skin.
Gelatin (and collagen in general) is known for its skin-supportive properties, due to its essential role in your connective tissue.
You can think of your connective tissue of your skin like a scaffolding of a building. It sits under the surface of your skin, holding everything together and keeping your skin tight and healthy.
As you age, the connective tissue of your skin naturally becomes weaker, resulting in wrinkles.
In one study, when women consume collagen daily for eight weeks, the appearance of their skin improved significantly. While skin moisture was not significantly affected, skin elasticity showed impressive improvement[*].
#2: Supports Healthy Immune Function
Healthy eating has a direct and profound impact on your immune system. And specific fatty acids may be the key to optimizing your immune health.
Coconut cream is a treasure trove of fatty acids. It not only includes about 12% MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides), but it’s also an abundant source of lauric acid — known for its immune-boosting activity.
While the MCTs in coconut oil can contribute to immediate energy for your body, lauric acid plays a very different role. This fatty acid has been found to have cancer-protecting effects in both breast and endometrial cancer.
Once ingested, lauric acid can assist your immune system by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. But that’s not all — this fatty acid also seems to have an apoptosis effect, causing the destruction of cancer cells[*].
#3: Promotes Balanced Blood Sugar
The number one guideline of following a keto diet is maintaining blood sugar control. Too much glucose coming in and you’ll kick yourself right out of ketosis.
That’s why it’s essential to find healthy treats like these coffee gummies that can satisfy your sweet tooth without throwing you off track.
The key to indulging without the sugar? Find sweeteners that don’t flood your body with glucose.
Even coconut sugar, which has less of an impact on blood sugar than table sugar, can pull you out of ketosis.
That’s where stevia comes in. This non-nutritive sweetener is an excellent option for all kinds of keto cooking, but especially keto desserts.
It not only sweetens your food without adding to your glucose load, but it may even support insulin production which would further support blood sugar[*].
