3 Health Benefits of This Keto Peach Danish Recipe
#1: Helps Curb Appetite
Exogenous ketones serve as an excellent source of quick fuel. This, however, isn’t their only benefit.
When you consume exogenous ketones, they may also help to curb your appetite. While your bloodstream is flooded with ketones, your hunger hormone ghrelin remains low, signaling to your body that you don’t need to eat any more food.
The effect of exogenous ketones on hunger levels can last up to four hours after consumption.
Subjects consuming an exogenous ketone beverage experienced lowered hormone levels, accompanied by a significant increase in fullness and decreased desire to eat.
Conversely, subjects given the same amount of calories in a glucose form experienced higher levels of both ghrelin and insulin[*].
#2: Great Source Of Protein
A warm danish with your morning cup of coffee sounds like a lovely treat, right?
Problem is: your run of the mill danish is loaded with highly processed ingredients like white flour and sugar. But this keto peach danish is no ordinary danish. In fact, it replaces sugar with protein and healthy fats.
Among the many benefits of consuming protein is the fact that it takes more energy to digest and absorb. That means when you replace a high-carb meal with a high protein meal, you’re using more energy (burning more calories) digesting the protein meal than the carb meal.
Same sweet satisfaction with more calorie burning? No brainer[*].
#3: Supports Heart Health
While lifestyle factors like exercise and smoking play a role, what you eat can make or break the health of your heart.
Vitamin E, found in abundance in almond flour, is an excellent nutrient for your heart. Several studies have found a correlation between increased vitamin E intake, and decreased incidence of heart disease[*].
One proposed mechanism for vitamin E’s heart-protective activity is through its antioxidant activity. By protecting your blood vessels from oxidative damage, vitamin E may inhibit an important step in the development of heart disease[*].
