GOOD GUT GUMMIES
I don’t know why, but there’s something I just LOVE about gummies. But have you ever looked at the
ingredients on the back of a box of fruit snacks or gummies?! Gross! That’s why I whipped up these
“good gut” gummies. Gelatin is great for healing your gut as it helps to restore a healthy mucosal
lining in the stomach and reduce the amount of inflammation in the body. It’s also a pure source of
protein, boosts metabolism, and reduces heartburn and acid reflux.
