Pure Gelatin is what I use at most
is largely composed of the amino acids glycine and proline, which many people don’t consume in adequate amounts as they are found in the bones, fibrous tissues and organs of animals and as a population, we don’t consume these parts as much anymore. These amino acids are needed not only for proper skin, hair and nail growth, but for optimal immune function and weight regulation!
Glycine, which makes up about 1/3 of the amino acids in gelatin powder is anti-inflammatory and evidence is finding that it can help speed wound healing. Glycine in gelatin can also help improve sleep ease and quality.
- Supports skin, hair and nail growth
- Good for joints and can help joint recovery
- Can help tighten loose skin (like the kind you get after having more kids…)
- Can improve digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps food move more easily though the digestive tract
- Rumored to help improve cellulite
- Great source of dietary collagen (side note: collagen is too large to be absorbed by the skin, so those skin creams are pretty useless… get it internally and use coconut oil for lotion!)
- Source of protein (though not a spectacular one) but its specific amino acids can help build muscle. With Jelly there are different options.
Here are just some of the many things you can do with gelatin powder.
- Make jello!
- Fruit snacks
- Gummy candies
- Panna cotta
- Thicken ice cream
- Thicken homemade yogurt
- Add to soups and stews
- Make gravy
- Mix into smoothies or milkshakes
There are also hands on Sugar-free versions of Jelly, which you see on the picture and could be added if you wanna have fast 3 in one in your dish
I have few options, again bought all over the world, but I would not suggest to use them as often, since they are not the healthiest version
