Benefits of cricket flour for gut health

Incorporating cricket flour into your diet can lead to a healthier gut.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Institute Madison’s of Environmental Studies discovered that eating cricket flour can promote the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, which is associated with a stronger immune system, more energy, a better mood, and overall health.

The study also discovered a decrease in TNF-alpha, an inflammatory protein in the blood that has been linked to depression and cancer.

Whether at the gym or in the great outdoors, enjoy clean protein in meals, shakes, and snacks.

How Cricket Protein Powder Improves Your Health

Mighty-Cricket-protein-challenge

Improves Intestinal Health

Cricket contains chitin, a powerful prebiotic fiber different from the dietary fiber found in fruits and vegetables, which constitutes the exoskeleton of arthropods such as insects and crustaceans.

Several studies have found that chitin is responsible for reducing inflammation and even reversing cases of irritable intestinal disease.

A healthy microbiota is associated with a stronger immune system, more energy, better mood, and better overall health.

Reduces Fatigue

Cricket flour contains more iron than beef. Iron assists in hemoglobin production which transports oxygen in the blood therefore it helps reduce fatigue resulting from a lack of hemoglobin.

Contributes to Brain Activity and Provides Energy

It contains 50 times more vitamin B12 than chicken and 7 times more than salmon. Vitamin B12 is necessary for converting food into energy and for the formation of red blood cells. Additionally, it is essential for the nervous system and brain to function properly.

Promotes Muscle Growth

Cricket is a great source of complete protein that exceeds the amount of protein found in beef, chicken, pork, and fish. It also contains 9 essential amino acids necessary for muscle growth and the entire metabolic process. These amino acids are called “essential” because the body doesn’t produce—they must be consumed through diet.

What they’re chirping

I love Mighty Cricket Protein Powder! I made chicken(less) soup, enchiladas, sandwiches, pasta sauces, granola, and roasted veggies with it. It’s easy to add into a bunch of dishes because it has such a mild flavor.

Mighty Cricket is my one exception to my vegan lifestyle. It’s hard finding clean protein powder to help me achieve my workout goals. I like starting my day with their cricket oatmeal, because the oatmeals are lean, full of flavor, and not too sweet.
