Gelatin Muscle Building & Repair Benefits

Excellent source of protein for physically active people

Muscle strength & repair

Gelatin and collagen are excellent sources of protein for physically active people who exercise regularly at the gym or with personal trainers. It increases muscle mass and muscle performance. You can substitute gelatin or collagen for whey protein powders as it has no fillers, sugars or chemicals. Our hydrolysed collagen is also readily available to the body and has rapid absorption after oral consumption.

Gelatin are collagen are both high in protein, which makes them perfect for stimulating and increasing muscle growth. Ideal for those who have lost muscle mass due to illness or hospitalization. Gelatin and collagen are great for muscle repair after exercise, or sports related injury. It helps heal wounds and tighten skin.

*Food grade gelatin has 88grams protein per 100grams *Hydrolyzed collagen has 96grams protein per 100grams

Gelatin and collagen are fantastic to use as a post recovery protein – immediately after exercise.

BCAA’s (branched chain amino acids) are well known for their ability to breakdown protein. The amino acids in gelatin and collagen are great for protein synthesis as well. The amino acids that have been considered as conditionally essential for this process are: arginine, cysteine, glutamine, glycine, proline and tyrosine, which are found in collagen and gelatin contain in very high concentrations.

These are the amino acids that the body requires for post recovery, but unable to rapidly synthesise them in the required amounts for recovery from intense activities (exercise) or recovery from a disease or injury or stress and when nutrient absorption capabilities are decreased (e.g. elderly people). So taking gelatin or collagen as a supplement directly after a workout will assist the body with the required amino acids for protein synthesis.

Gelatin and collagen has been useful for those who work out to increase muscle mass and tone. The alanine in gelatin has been shown to help protect cells from being damaged during intense aerobic activity, when the body cannibalizes muscle protein to help produce energy.

Gelatin is also abundant in proline. The proline in gelatin helps keep muscles and joints flexible. It is also used in the development and maintenance of healthy skin, muscle and connective tissues, especially at the site of traumatic tissue injury.

Glycine is the simplest of the amino acids. It is a building block and precursor for several molecular pathways. Glycine also helps to repair damaged tissues; without it our wounds would never heal.

Arginine and glycine together are precursors for and boost the level of creatine. Creatine supplies the energy to all cells in the body, and increases muscle mass.

Please note: We would never recommend anyone use collagen or gelatine as their only source of protein due to its low levels of some essential amino acids and lack of tryptophan.

 

Stimulate Muscle Growth

Flexibility

Grams of Protein

Food grade gelatin has 88grams protein per 100grams. Hydrolyzed collagen has 96grams protein per 100grams.      

Post Exercise

Gelatin and collagen are fantastic to use as a post recovery protein – immediately after exercise.

Muscle Tone

The glycine and alanine found in gelatin helps to convert the simple sugar glucose to energy.

Amino Acids

Gelatin is rich in Glycine which is one of the main amino acids needed for liver detoxification. The Alanine found in gelatin is known to assist in eliminating excess toxins from the liver.
