Gummies are the new hotness, and they’re becoming the go-to treat of choice for many people.
Gummies have been used to help reduce high blood pressure, prevent the onset of cancer, reduce inflammation and boost metabolism for years.
But the benefits of slimming them down aren’t just based on how they look.
Researchers from the University of Florida found that slimming up can help to boost the body’s immune system.
The research, published online on Thursday in the journal Immunity, found that adding just two grams of slim gummy candy can increase the body temperature by about 20 degrees.
And it’s possible that the extra heat can help the body fight off a virus or other infections.
“We found that people who had a higher body temperature after eating two gummy sticks of candy, but not after three, four or five gummy balls of candy were significantly more likely to have a favorable immune response to the virus,” said Dr. John E. Lappas, the lead author of the study and an associate professor of medicine at the UF College of Medicine.
So if you have an allergy to the sweet, slimy stuff, slimming it down may help to fight it.
Lifestyle changes may also help slim the fat, which can increase energy levels and help reduce cholesterol.
Larger doses of vitamin C may help fight inflammation, too.
And eating a diet rich in protein can boost metabolism.
“What is really fascinating is that there are multiple components that contribute to the immune response, and the key thing is the amount of fat,” said Lappis.
“The amount of calories we eat in the body is largely determined by our genes and what the body needs for growth and maintenance.
We have a whole suite of hormones that determine what our body needs to maintain and protect itself against a wide range of pathogens.”
So if a person doesn’t have an allergic reaction to the candy, it may not make sense to eat it.
And if it does, it might not be enough to reduce the risk of developing an infection.
“It’s possible, though, that sliming down can have an impact on other immune system responses that may be related to other infections,” said Eileen R. Pender, a professor of immunology and immunology at the University at Albany in New York.
And one of those is the immune cells that fight viruses.
“If you slim down, it’s less likely that the immune cell will start to develop an infection,” said Pender.
“This is one of the reasons why there are so many studies on this topic.”
But what happens to people who don’t like slimming?
And are slimming not for everyone?
“Some people have been slimming for years and years and have never developed an allergy,” said Rana Agrawal, an assistant professor of microbiology and microbiology at Yale University.
“They’re just not sensitive to it.
But some people have not developed an allergic response to slimming, and others may have developed an adverse reaction.”
So the answer is, don’t worry.
There are plenty of ways to make your body thinner.
You can try a slimming gel or diet bar, or try a low-fat dairy product.
But for those who like a little bit of the classic gummy goodness, it could be worth a try.
