I get asked on @lilsipper what the benefits are gelatin. First, I always make sure it’s grass-fed (like the kind I now take from Further Food). Be aware, other brands like Knox are sourced from pork!? I take it primarily for gut health due to Crohn’s, IBS, etc., but the benefits are far beyond gut health.
Gelatin (think “gel” because it “gels up” when chilled like jello):
▪Helps tighten loose skin
▪Helps improve cellulite
▪Helps joint recovery
▪Supports skin, hair and nail growth
▪Is high in protein
…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. Try it in some of my Butter Coffee!
There is sooo much more, but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the benefits of gelatin. Collagen has similar benefits, and I take them both.
