What is Gelatin

Gelatin is pure protein containing essential amino acid chains

Gelatin is considered to be one of the NEW super foods, a miracle, magic health supplement.

But is it ? - Yes it is, however it is NOT new - Just Forgotten

Gelatin has been used successfully throughout history in the medical world for a variety of reasons as it was readily available and affordable. Gelatin use has been lost over the years due to increased processing and packaging of food. Food production is now chemical, technical, advanced, quick, fast, NOW! Because of this, food is now chemically created to be better and last longer than the foods of the past, but it does not contain all the goodness of the past. what-is-gelatin

What is gelatin?

Gelatin is a translucent, colorless, flavorless foodstuff. It is the cooked form of collagen, a pure protein that contains amino acids needed for production of muscle energy, cartilage formation, joint mobility, healthy skin, and it aids the digestive process.

What is gelatin made of?

Gelatin is the cooked form of collagen, derived directly from the skin, white connective tissue, cartilage and certain bones of animals; usually cows or pigs. Gelatin is a pure source of protein that contains no sugar, fat or cholesterol. It contains 18 amino acids that we need for survival.

Gelatin is fantastic for digestion, strengthening skin, hair, nails and increasing collagen production.

Food Grade Gelatin

Our food grade (gelling gelatin) is sourced from Australian predominantly pasture raised cows. The cattle are vet checked and certified, and adhere to strict quality standards to ensure premium grade skin, bones and hides are used.

Food grade gelatin can be used for cooking. But gelatin is an amazing health supplement that can have positive health effects and is beneficial for digestion.

Hydrolyzed Gelatin

Our hydrolyzed collagen peptides (non-gelling) is sourced from vet checked and certified cows from Germany. Strict quality standard and applied to the production of collagen to ensure a premium product. 

It is a broken down form of gelatin. Different enzymes are used to create and produce different types of collagen. These are designed to target specific areas or problems in the body. 

Why do we need Gelatin?

Today you can buy soup packets, soup in a can, cup of soup (just add water) and other varieties of soup. When Grandma used to make soup, she would cook a chicken for dinner, and after eating the meat, she then boiled the carcass with some veggies to make “real” chicken soup.

The bone carcass is where the gelatin goodness came from. Nowadays, processing plants strip the chicken, sell the meat and discard the carcass for pet foods. Essentially pets now eat better than us, getting all the goodness from the bones.

Our society predominately eats muscle meats which contain very low amounts of gelatin (if any at all). The problem with this is that muscle meats are extremely high in the amino acids ‘cysteine’ and ‘tryptophan’ which have anti-metabolic and thyroid suppressing effects leading to degenerative and inflammatory disease states.

So why do we need gelatin? - Gelatin is bio-available to the body, which means it is easily digestible and readily available. By adding the missing gelatin into your diet it helps to balance the amino acid ratio which lowers cortisol and reduces inflammation.

Our gelatin contains no sugar, gluten, dairy, fat, or MSG, eggs, nuts, GMO, sugar, gluten

The Benefits of Gelatin

Gelatin is a great source of dietary collagen and is full of protein. Adding gelatin to your diet is the easiest way of increasing your daily protein intake. It plays an important role in energy production, keeps people physically active and mobile. Adding gelatin to your diet can benefit you in many ways. Gelatin contains high percentages of glycine, alanine and proline.

  • Alanine – muscle energy, connective tissue, sugar metabolism
  • Glycine – wound healing, sugar metabolism,
  • Proline – health of joints, tendons & ligaments, critical component of cartilage, works with Vitamin C in keeping skin and joints healthy.
WOUND HEALING

Gelatin can help speed up wound healing due to the glycine, which is highly anti-inflammatory.

DIGESTION AND ABSORPTION

Gelatin aids digestion and increases absorption rates. This does wonderful things for your gastro intestinal tract.

WEIGHT LOSS

Gelatin can help with weight loss as it is nutrient-dense, this helps you feel fuller longer.

SKIN CONDITION

Gelatin improves the elasticity of your skin. Gelatin stimulates your body to produce more collagen, helping improve the look, condition and feel of your skin.

HAIR & NAIL CONDITION

Gelatin contains keratin, a protein that improves the condition of hair and nails, as well as skin.

JOINT & BONE HEALTH

Gelatin contribute to the maintenance of joint and bone health. It contains amino acids important for assisting with the prevention of weakness and degeneration of cartilage in joints. It can stimulates cell growth in joint cartilage, restore mobility.

JOINT INFLAMMATION

Gelatin has anti-inflammatory properties and has also been shown to reduce pain and inflammation of joints (like the pain experienced from arthritis).

DIGESTION

Gelatin naturally binds to water. It assists in digestion and absorption ability.

GLYCINE FOR LIVER DETOXIFICATION

Rich in the amino acid glycine, gelatin supports the neutralization of toxins in the liver and the natural detoxification process for healthy liver function.

MUSCLE MASS, GROWTH & PERFORMANCE

Gelatin helps increase muscle mass, performance and repair. Gelatin are collagen are both high in protein, which stimulates muscle growth, ideal for those who have lost muscle mass due to illness or hospitalisation, or to repair after exercise, or a sports-related injury. Gelatin is also abundant in proline which helps keep muscles and joints flexible.
