Benefits of the ingredients:
For those who prefer to avoid the use of animal milk because of the shared views that surround its consumption, coconut milk presents a healthier alternative plant with surprising benefits. Thanks to its selenium content with antioxidant action, it acts on free radicals, regulating their activity and thus relieving pain related to arthritis and joint inflammation in general.
Citrus fruit with many benefits, lemon is again and again, a great ally to help you remedy health problems. Rich in vitamin C, it would reduce the level of uric acid in the body, responsible for gout and therefore troublesome joint pain.
Rich in fiber, agar-agar is the vegetable alternative par excellence to replace gelatin. Compatible with many diets including vegan diet or vegetarian diet, this ingredient is an ally of choice to promote weight loss and decrease the presence of fat in the body. As explained by Professor Richard Trier to our colleagues at Le Figaro, overweight people are at greater risk of suffering from osteoarthritis and their excess fat is often responsible for additional pressure on the joints.
Agar-Agar is contraindicated for people who have suffered intestinal obstruction. It is also not recommended in case of diabetes, high cholesterol or if the individual is on laxative treatment.
Lemon is not recommended for gastric, biliary or renal disorders.
