Gelatin. I use it every day! In my coffee, in desserts, heck, I’ve even put it in my smoothies! But not all gelatin is created equal. As you already know, I’ve been consuming Vital Proteins products for about 3 years strong consistently – daily actually, and have reaped the health benefits. What are they?
• Helps tighten loose skin
• Helps improve cellulite
• Helps joint recovery
• Supports skin, hair and nail growth
• Improves digestion
• Is high in protein
• Promotes relaxation
…and my favorite, HELPS HEAL YOUR GUT!
Gut and Digestion
Gelatin helps improve the lining of the digestive tract, preventing leaky gut syndrome. The gut lining as one of the body’s most important lines of defense, since it keeps the good stuff in your digestive system (and the bad stuff out!) and prevents leakage into the bloodstream, which triggers inflammation.
I always make sure it’s grass-fed (like the kind I take from Vital Proteins). Be aware, other brands like Knox are sourced from pork! Real THIS POST as to why I avoid pork all together and how it can cause tons of health issues, especially for you gut!
There are so many ways to incorporate the health benefits of gelatin, so I’ve listed some of my favorite recipe below. Enjoy!
