If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know we love sharing recipes! Well, today we’ve got something special for you. Gummies are all the rage, having become a popular delivery option for vitamins and supplements.
Unlike many commercially available brands that may contain artificial sweeteners or dyes, here’s a version that features our aloe juice and other healthy ingredients. These gummies are a naturally delicious way to help support your gut health.
- Papaya Juice: This tropically refreshing beverage is loaded with health benefits. Papayas contain papain, an enzyme that promotes digestion. Vitamin and mineral-rich papaya juice (it’s high in Vitamins A, C, beta-carotene, and folate) also supports immunity, improves vision, helps reduce inflammation, and improves bone strength.
- Beef Gelatin: The primary ingredient in beef gelatin is collagen. This essential protein is the primary component in all connective tissue throughout the body. Collagen supports healthy hair, skin, bones, and joints. Beef gelatin promotes digestion by helping break down foods and coating the small intestine.
- Aloe Vera Juice: We’ve included Lily’s organic whole leaf aloe juice in this recipe because it maximizes the wellness benefits aloe is known for; digestive support, immunity-boosting, toxin reduction, and nutrient absorption.
- Honey: This nectar is so much more than a delicious sweetener; honey contains multiple beneficial properties. It’s rich in antioxidants that fight off free-radical damage, helps minimize cold symptoms, and contains prebiotics that support gut health.
