3 Health Benefits of Chocolate Strawberry Gummies
#1: Helps Control Appetite
When you’re trying to lose a few pounds, hunger can become a massive barrier to success.
Cravings are an even bigger problem if you’re cutting calories or trying a low-fat diet.
On the one hand, appetite is a good sign that your metabolism is working well. On the other, excess cravings can throw you off track when it comes to weight loss.
Exogenous ketones may help control your appetite.
Research shows that when people take exogenous ketones (specifically beta-hydroxybutyrate), they experience lower levels of the hormone ghrelin, known as the “hunger hormone,” and subsequently have lower appetites and desire to eat[*].
#2: May Improve Hair Growth
Who doesn’t want a full head of thick, healthy hair?
When researchers gave a group of people gelatin supplementation and then measured their hair thickness, 70% of participants showed between 5-45% increase in hair diameter.
After six months of no longer taking the gelatin supplement, their hair had returned to normal.
This suggests that it was, in fact, the gelatin that increased the thickness of the participant’s hair[*]. These gelatin-based gummies are a great start. Snack on a few every day, in addition to putting some collagen powder in your coffee, and you’ll be on your way to thick, gorgeous hair.
#3: Improved Cognition
The exogenous ketone, beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), may have the ability to improve your brain function.
Glucose is the brain’s primary energy source, but when glucose is low, you can begin to notice brain fog and impaired concentration[*].
When you’re in ketosis, you don’t have to worry about low glucose because your body is no longer relying solely on glucose for fuel, you have ketones to supply your energy.
In one study, researchers gave a group of patients with Alzheimer’s disease MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), which convert into BHB in your blood and then measured cognitive performance.
The Alzheimer’s patients saw improved cognition, and the improvement continued in a dose-dependent manner. That means, the more ketones in the blood, the better their cognitive performance[*].

If you do a quick search of keto-friendly treats, you’re going to come up with tons of fat bomb recipes, keto-friendly cookies, brownies — you name it.
