Red Gulaman Drink

Red gulaman…………Another refreshing drink to beat the heat this summer here in Auckland. Instead of drinking softdrinks or other soda beverages, I highly recommend this red gulaman drink. This will be our base drink as you can add fruit juices you may like such as orange squeeze, lemon juice, apple slices or even grapes and strawberries. Depending on your imagination, you can serve it in a fruit punch bowl if you place every fruit I have mention above.  It is up to you, I like my gulaman plain and my wife loves with fruit………………….Did you know that a jelly or gelatin contains lysine, an amino acid that is important for muscle growth. It would seem, then, that eating gelatin would help growing muscles, especially for athletes and those who want a more muscular build. Gelatin also contains another amino acid, arginine, which is supposed to help the body’s metabolism. A stronger metabolism means more calories are getting burned, so it’s not impossible eating some gelatin could help you lose weight. Believe it or not? It’s up to you again………..
