Gelatin, in it's purest form, is collagen, found in our connective tissues. It contains 18 amino acids.
Gelatin can help your hair and skin, your joints, arthritis pain, stomach problems, and also provide some much needed amino acid proteins. It can help increase your metabolism, help with digestive issues, and even improve your night's sleep. This isn't a comprehensive list at all; these are just a few of the benefits that including gelatin in your daily diet will allow you to experience.
How do you get gelatin in your diet? Well, you could always buy gelatin in a powdered form. One of the best available in the US is from Great Lakes. This brand is from grass fed cows, and comes in 2 types (red and green). The red can is the type that gels, and it can be used to make homemade jello or gummies. The green kind is processed at a higher temperature so it doesn't gel, and can be added to drinks (it's unflavored).
Another way to get gelatin in your diet is to add bone broth to your diet. Bone broth contains some gelatin, especially if the bones you use are joints or feet.
Gelatin doesn't have to be consumed to be beneficial. Some people make a hand soak to help strengthen their nails. Others add it to their shampoo to get the goodness into the hair. You can make hair gel or a face mask. Really, just use your imagination!
