Top 5 Benefits of Gelatin!


It is convenient to use gelatin in a variety of desserts. Gelatin is a potent protein that promotes glowing skin. It strengthens joints, hair and nails; improves intestinal health; and even helps with sleep. Gelatin is found in animal parts and provides essential amino acids, also known as the building blocks of protein. Today, most diets do not include skin, bones and connective tissue, which are the primary sources of these amino acids and could benefit from additional gelatin powder.

I. What is gelatin?

Gelatin is made by steaming collagen, a protein found in the skin, hooves, connective tissue and bones of animals. The cooking process breaks the bonds between the proteins, resulting in smaller, more bioavailable building blocks that your body can easily absorb. Gelatin is rich in beneficial amino acids like collagen , especially the anti-aging superstars glycine and proline, which are lacking in the standard Western diet. These amino acids make gelatin particularly effective at healing skin, intestinal and joint damage. Since collagen and gelatin come from the same source, they share the same amino acid profile.

II. Health benefits of gelatin

Expert illustrated mixing foods containing gelatin with foods or supplements rich in vitamin C. Amino acids and vitamin C can work better together, resulting in the formation of collagen in the body.

1. Glowing skin:

Gelatin, made from grass-fed sources, provides essential proteins that improve skin moisture and elasticity, promote healing and prevent wrinkles. Your body especially needs the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline to build its own collagen, one of the essential elements of healthy skin. Since your body tends to produce less collagen as you age, having these building blocks readily available helps fight wrinkles, sagging and sun exposure.

2. Strong Joints

Gelatin is not only more elastic than skin, but it also promotes healing and elasticity of connective tissue. Studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen supplements (such as gelatin) can reduce joint pain and increase cartilage density for longer lasting joints.

3. Intestinal health

The proteins in gelatin may help repair damage to the intestinal wall caused by leaky intestinal tract and rebuild the protective mucosa of the intestines. Grass-fed gelatin also helps intestinal bacteria produce butyric acid, which promotes digestion and reduces inflammation in the brain.

4. Support for detoxification

Gelatin and collagen are low in the amino acid methionine and high in glycine. Glycine helps balance the inflammatory effects of methionine, the high intake of which can lead to accumulation of methionine and cause cardiovascular disease. Gelatin-rich glycine and glutamic acid are also major components of glutathione, a major detoxifier that helps protect your liver, process toxins and flush out heavy metals.

5. Improve sleep

Another superpower of glycine, one of the amino acids abundant in gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen, is to help promote peaceful sleep. Glycine helps your body fight stress hormones and reduce anxiety, and helps study participants fall into a deeper sleep faster and feel clearer and more alert the next day. Better yet, excess glycine does not cause daytime drowsiness.
