These gummies are full of goodness but with only few simple ingredients... and that's my style of food preparation!
Gelatin, glowing greens powder and fresh green juice is all you need.
Gelatin is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians as the gelatin is derived from bones - but gelatin is sooooo good for our connective tissue! And what is connective tissue exactly - well it's just that, it is tissue that connects strongly to maintain the shape of organs, keep skin taught etc.
When we consume gelatin, it helps to heal connective tissue by adding the building blocks our bodies need. Many have heard of it being useful for leaky gut syndrome (keep an eye out for another blog on this), which it is, but is also useful for arthritis, skin disorders, hair, nails and any connective tissue issues!
These gummies also contain glowing greens powder and green juice - both of which add a punch of nutrition. Glowing greens is a powder that contains an array of greens, broccoli, parsley, kale, chlorella, algae, spinach, spirulina and also contains medicinal mushrooms, pineapple for an added anti-inflammatory action. Soothing, nourishing, detoxifying and gently alkalising. All ingredients are certified organic with no nasties added!
Green juice will add an abundance of nutrients and that will differ depending on what you put in your juice. Green foods tend to be very high in vitamin C, chlorophyll, vitamin K, fibre, iron, calcium and smaller amounts of iron, zinc and magnesium - all these nutrients are essential to everyday functions int he body, supporting immune function, energy production, detoxification, digestion, blood health, hair, skin, nails bones, hormones!
