Gelatin is known as a “superfood” because of its many health benefits. It’s a protein that makes up about 50% of the protein in our bodies. The following are some of the many benefits you can gain from eating plain gelatin:
Anxiety, Sleep: Gelatin contains a high percentage of glycine, a non-essential amino acid and inhibitory neurotransmitter, which is known to decrease anxiety and to promote restorative sleep.
Skin Health: Gelatin’s rich source of dietary collagen improves skin elasticity, skin tone, and renewal of skin cells and contributes to skin strength and firmness. It also helps prevent stretch marks and improves cellulite conditions.
Anti-aging: Collagen loss is the cause of wrinkles. Taking collagen internally in form of gelatin is more effective than putting it on the surface of the skin in the form of skin creams. Research has shown the eating gelatin visibly reduces wrinkles by stimulating and enhancing production of collagen. (In younger women, it helps prevent wrinkles).
Teeth, Hair and Nails: Gelatin provides an abundance of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, which builds strong nails, teeth, and hair.
Liver Detox: Gelatin is rich in the amino acid glycine, which is vital for liver detoxification.
Weight loss: The high protein content of gelatin acts as an appetite suppressant helping you feel full, and its liver detoxification abilities helps to boost the body’s fat burning ability.
Strong Bones: Gelatin contains easily digestible calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals which helps build healthy bones.
Arthritis Support: Gelatin contains Chondroitin, which has long been used as supplement for arthritis pain and stiffness. The Chondroitin found in gelatin supports joints, cartilage and tendons and improves rheumatoid arthritis as well as other degenerative joint conditions.
High Metabolism: Glycine can be considered a semi-essential amino acid which helps boost metabolism by building and maintaining muscle.
Hormone balance: Gelatin provides the amino acid glycine, which helps regulate insulin, prevents hypoglycemia, and helps the body make glutathione, which is crucial for helping to remove excess estrogen.
Wound repair: Glycine and arginine found in gelatin aids in wound repair.
Allergies: Gelatin may alleviate allergic reactions and sensitivities because it helps seal inflamed and porous gut linings.
Muscle maintenance: The amino acid in gelatin speeds muscle recovery and has been used to preserve muscle mass in people who are on long-term bed rest.
Lowers Inflammation: Gelatin is very high in anti-inflammatory amino acids such as glycine and proline.
How much gelatin should you take? Individual needs vary, but most people can start off with about ½ -1 tablespoon per day and increase every two weeks or so as tolerated. (Taking too much right away can cause stomach upset). The typical person can work up to about 3-6 tablespoons of powdered gelatin per day.
