Fat And Nuts Help Support Satiety And Brain Health

It may seem impossible that a dessert is good for you, but the ingredients in these fat bombs can help support your brain, connective tissue, and your gut lining. Let’s dig in.

#1. Nuts And Cacao Support Brain Function

Ditch inflammatory peanut butter for better nuts like hazelnuts.

Hazelnuts are jam-packed with essential nutrients like folate, thiamine, fatty acids, manganese, and vitamin E.

Studies show that the nutrients in hazelnuts can strengthen your nerves, support brain health, and improve memory and anxiety symptoms[*][*][*][*].

Cacao contains powerful flavonoids that support neurotransmitter production. This can improve your mood by stimulating feelings of bliss, euphoria and even increase your focus [*][*].

Perfect Keto Nut Butter and Perfect Keto Collagen Chocolate not only contain nuts and cocoa, respectively; they also contain powerful fatty acids called MCTs or medium chain triglycerides. MCTs are known for converting into energy quickly, increasing your mental clarity and focus.

#2. Collagen And Magnesium For Better Skin

It’s always a good idea to get more collagen powder. Collagen peptides contain amino acids that help repair connective tissue and promote collagen production. That means better skin, hair, nails, and joints with every scoop of powder[*].

Collagen protein, plus the magnesium in cacao support muscle synthesis. And magnesium is also known to support nerve function[*].

#3. Chocolate For Stronger Digestion

Chocolate is being studied for its positive effects on the gut microbiome. Studies show an increase in the good gut bugs Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli and a decrease in less favorable bacteria[*].

The same study also showed lower inflammatory markers and triglycerides in patients who consumed a lot of high-quality chocolate.

Cacao also delivers a solid dose of polyphenols which may support healthy blood pressure, insulin resistance, and heart function[*].

Coconut flour is rich in dietary fiber, which aids in healthy digestive function and encourages microbiome diversity.

If you’re on the keto diet or you’re keto-curious, this is a dessert you can really embrace. With skin-supporting collagen and gut-supporting cacao; plus plenty of healthy fats from organic, grass-fed cream cheese and Perfect Keto Nut Butter, you’ll satisfy your sweet tooth and stay healthy.

The best part? Five minutes of prep and zero cook time. It’s basically all the best parts of a cake — the cheesecake filling — with none of the baking.

Pass this one along to all your keto friends.
