3 Health Benefits of Salted Caramel Nut Butter Fat Bombs
#1: May Protect Against Metabolic Syndrome
Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. These conditions often result from poor diet and lifestyle habits and include high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess abdominal fat, and high triglycerides.
These fat bombs are loaded with almonds and macadamia nuts, which may have a profound effect on your risk for metabolic syndrome.
One study looked at how nuts can affect the risk of metabolic syndrome by giving participants either a standard Mediterranean diet or a Mediterranean diet plus nuts.
The results showed that adding more nuts to a traditional Mediterranean diet significantly reduced the risk of metabolic disease[*].
#2: Supports A Healthy Gut
Keeping your gut happy is a crucial part of maintaining good health as you age.
The fact of the matter is — sugar and processed foods hurt your gut lining while other foods like collagen and fiber may enhance gut health.
Collagen is an integral part of your connective tissue — a matrix of tissue around your muscles, and bones. It’s also a crucial component of your gut lining.
Getting enough of the amino acids found in collagen powder may help heal leaky gut syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease[*].
A healthy gut lining means you’re only absorbing what your body recognizes as nutrients. And a strong gut lining means that your food stays where it’s supposed to be, instead of letting undigested food molecules into your bloodstream[*].
MCTs, or medium-chain triglycerides, also promote healthy gut bacteria and may improve intestinal permeability (AKA leaky gut)[*].
#3: Boosts Immunity
One study looked at the effect of coconut oil on candida, a persistent fungal infection that affects around 46,000 people each year in the United States[*].
Many people use a pharmaceutical antifungal called fluconazole to treat candida. However, candida can quickly become resistant to this and other antifungal drugs— which renders them useless.
The study found that coconut oil was effective in fighting candida, compared with the pharmaceutical alternative. Even the researchers agreed that you should use coconut oil as part of dealing with a drug-resistant candida infection[*].
Another immunity-boosting ingredient in these keto fat bombs comes from the macadamia nuts found in the Perfect Keto Nut Butter.
Macadamia nuts are a rich source of oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid. And adding more oleic acid-rich foods to your diet may help reduce inflammation. The idea is that oleic acid activates different immune pathways, and may enhance the strength of your immune system[*].
