Additional Gelatin Benefits

Gelatin Family Park

  • Provides us with a very rich source of calcium, magnesium and potassium, all of which are vital for healthy bone growth and development
  • Provides us with a rich source of collagen. The breakdown of collagen in bone broth is what produces gelatin
  • Collagen is important to help strengthen all connective tissue, this includes our skin, hair and nails.
  • Rich source of glucosaminoglycans, a type of glucosamine that forms a vital part of our joint tissue. It will help strengthen joints, prevent and assist symptoms of arthritis
  • Another big thing that glycine does is it helps us sleep. That is why having a tablespoon of gelatin in warm milk before bed can help send us into a restful slumber! See our recipe section for our bedtime sleep tonic recipe.
  • Gelatin rich soups and broths are a key component of the GAPS diet (gut and psychology syndrome) which has been designed to heal the gut and promote healthy digestion.
  • Helps with wound healing as it contains glycine. Glycine helps to repair damaged tissues, without it our wounds would never heal. Glycine is also anti-inflammatory.

In addition to supplying glycine, gelatin contains proline, which has some of the following benefits: 

  • works with glycine to form collagen and connective tissues
  • assists in the breakdown of other proteins in the body
  • helps with the formation of new cells
  • helps with proper muscle tissue maintenance
