Let’s make our OWN CREAMER! I’m talking tasty creamers to add to your morning coffee that have amazing health and PERFORMANCE benefits!! Let’s dive in and I’ll see you in the COMMENTS!!
1) Coconut Cream + Cacao
Coconut cream is basically the same thing as coconut milk, except the coconut meat-to-water ratio is about four-to-one
The exact antimicrobial compounds that coconut oil contains in coconut cream, too – contains lauric acid, which converts to monolaurin in the body
Additionally, lauric acid activates PPARα and PPARγ and increases fat metabolism.
Lauric acid itself is metabolized faster than other saturated fats and is burned as fuel more quickly than palmitic, stearic, oleic, elaidic, linoleic, or linolenic fatty acids. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2000 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11010930
Lauric acid and monolaurin (lauric acid attached to glycerol backbone) have potent antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties, including against H. pylori, Candida, Clostridium, and E. Coli.
Microbes aren’t able to evolve resistance to lauric acid and monolaurin because they work through three mechanisms: (i) destruction of gram-positive bacterial cell membranes and lipid-coated viruses, (ii) interference with microbial signal transduction and transcription, and (iii) stabilization of human cell membranes.
Lauric acid/monolaurin is the strongest antimicrobial in human breastmilk. Furthermore, lauric acid levels are lower in sick mothers and infants. Nutrients 2017 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5622794/
Minerals: Rich in copper, iron, manganese, and magnesium – antioxidants: Rich in catechins, flavanols, and polyphenols that protect against oxidative stress and inflammation.
Improved blood pressure and flow
Myostatin restricts muscle growth to prevent hypertrophy – Epicatechin decreases the myostatin production in the body and it increases the production of another protein called follistatin
This protein promotes muscle growth and helps minimize the effect of myostatin in the body
2) Ghee + Vanilla Bean
Unlike butter, ghee and other types of clarified butter contain virtually no lactose and are very low in casein – also contains butyric acid
3) Laird Superfood Creamer + Turmeric
Laird Superfood Creamer
Coconut Milk Powder
Organic Coconut Sugar
Aquamin (calcium from marine algae)
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
No artificial flavors, colors, or additives
No highly-refined sugar
4) Hemp Milk + Cinnamon + Cayenne + Stevia
Cinnamon has the ability to imitate the activity of insulin in the body
Increases thermogenesis + it’s been shown to inactivate NF-kB
Stevia increases insulin secretion by stimulating pancreatic cells and improves insulin sensitivity
Steviosides are used by lactobacilli and bifidobacteria as a nutrient source
5) Coconut Cream + Ginger + Mint
Blood glucose control: Gingerols, particularly (S)-- and (S)-- gingerol, promoted glucose uptake significantly in (cultured rat) skeletal muscle cells
Mint (peppermint has some cool benefits)
Peppermint helps with digestive issues is because it activates an anti-pain channel in the colon: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304395911000340
