Gelatin for joints and bones: Gelatin: Uses and Risks


Gelatin: Uses and Risks

Gelatin is a protein made from the skins and bones of pigs and cows. It’s a common ingredient in a number of products, including:

Why do people take gelatin?

Many people with arthritis take gelatin supplements. Gelatin contains collagen. That’s a material in the cartilage that cushions the bones in your joints.

The idea behind this usage is that eating gelatin (with collagen) will add collagen to your joints. However, that’s probably not true. The collagen in gelatin gets broken down when you eat it. It wouldn’t travel directly to your joints.

Nonetheless, there is some evidence that gelatin could help ease joint pain in people with osteoarthritis.

In animal studies, gelatin supplements also reduced swelling caused by rheumatoid arthritis. However, we need more research to know if gelatin is effective in either of these cases.

There’s no standard dose for gelatin. Ask your health care provider for advice.

Can you get gelatin naturally from foods?

Gelatin is a common ingredient in foods and medications.

What are the risks?

Side effects. Gelatin supplements can cause side effects such as:

Some people have allergic reactions to gelatin.

Risks. When eaten in foods, gelatin is considered safe by the FDA. We don’t know how safe it is to take high doses of gelatin supplements.

Some experts worry that gelatin has a risk of being contaminated with certain animal diseases. So far there have been no reported cases of people getting sick in this way.

We also don’t know if gelatin supplements are safe in children and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Interactions. If you take any medicines regularly, talk to your doctor before you start using gelatin supplements.

In general, you should tell your doctor about any supplements you’re taking, even if they’re natural. That way, your doctor can check on any potential side effects or interactions with medications.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does regulate dietary supplements; however, it treats them differently from foods and drugs. The manufacturer is responsible to assure the safety and correct labeling of their products.it treats them differently from foods and drugs.

Good for your joints? — ScienceDaily

A new study from Keith Baar’s Functional Molecular Biology Laboratory at the UC Davis College of Biological Sciences and the Australian Institute of Sport suggests that consuming a gelatin supplement, plus a burst of intensive exercise, can help build ligaments, tendons and bones. The study is published in the January issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Connective tissue and bone injuries are common in both athletes and the elderly, and interfere with peoples’ ability (and enthusiasm) for exercise, whether they are an elite athlete or just trying to lose weight and maintain fitness and flexibility. Steps that can prevent injury and enhance recovery are therefore of great interest.

Obviously, it’s difficult to assess the direct effect of a supplement on tissues without opening up someone’s knee. But Baar’s laboratory has been developing techniques to grow artificial ligaments in the laboratory. They used their lab-dish ligaments as a stand-in for the real thing.

Gelatin, Vitamin C and Exercise

Baar, Greg Shaw at the Australian Institute of Sport, and colleagues enrolled eight health young men in a trial of a gelatin supplement enhanced with vitamin C. The volunteers drank the supplement and had blood taken, and after one hour performed a short (five minute) bout of high-impact exercise (skipping).

The researchers tested the blood for amino acids that could build up the collagen protein that composes tendons, ligaments, and bones. They also tested blood samples for their effect on Baar’s lab-grown ligaments at UC Davis.

The gelatin supplement increased blood levels of amino acids and markers linked to collagen synthesis, and improved the mechanics of the engineered lab-grown ligaments, they found.

“These data suggest that adding gelatin and vitamin C to an intermittent exercise program could play a beneficial role in injury prevention and tissue repair,” the researchers wrote.

Health benefits of eating gelatin daily (a 3 month challenge)

I have always had a good amount of gelatin in my diet. I like it in your typical Jello form but also in my favorite candies, other desserts and even soups. It wasn’t till I looked at my diet closer that I found exactly how much gelatin I usually consume, and how often.

I had seen a mention on an Instagram photo about the benefits of eating gelatin. The photo claimed it was a diet food and was good for hair, skin, nails and joints. I decided to research it.

I found so many amazing benefits that I decided to give myself a challenge. I decided that I would eat gelatin in some form every single day for 3 months and then assess my results. 

I was pretty impressed after 3 months, but my 5th month just finished and I am absolutely in love with the results!

What is gelatin? 

Gelatin or gelatine (from Latin: gelatus meaning “stiff”, “frozen”) is a translucent, colorless, brittle (when dry), flavorless foodstuff, derived from collagen obtained from various animal by-products. It is commonly used as a gelling agent in food, pharmaceuticals, photography, and cosmetic manufacturing.

Gelatin is an irreversibly hydrolyzed form of collagen. (source: Wikipedia) According to WebMD:

Gelatin is used for weight loss and for treating osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and brittle bones (osteoporosis). Some people also use it for strengthening bones, joints, and fingernails. Gelatin is also used for improving hair quality and to shorten recovery after exercise and sports-related injury.

“My” main reasons for consuming gelatin daily for this challenge are as follows:


Gelatin absorbs water so it keeps things moving through the gut and helps with digestion and constipation. It also reduces inflammation and helps repair the intestinal lining. Gelatin can also help with leaky gut.

Healthy joints: 

You read that part about gelatin being derived from collagen, right? We know joints need collagen to be healthy and this is a great source of it! Athletes have used gelatin for joint pain relief and as an anti-inflammatory.

Skin & Hair: 

Speaking of collagen….those anti aging creams they sell aren’t as effective as a daily serving of gelatin, and it’s cheaper. Gelatin also contains keratin which is essential for healthy nails, hair, teeth and skin.


Gelatin contains glycine and consuming it before bed helps induce sleep. That’s not to say that eating it during the day will make you tired, but the glycine in gelatin can help you to sleep better at night.


Gelatin contains 6 grams of protein per tablespoon, 1/2 of your essential amino acids and Glycine, which helps your liver release toxins.

Now this is by no means a complete list on benefits. I’d be writing for the next 2 days if I compiled one of those! That is the list of why I decided to challenge myself to eat more gelatin. Now for my results:

* My nails are longer and stronger. Finally!
* My joints quit hurting all the time and when they do bother me, it seems to be a much shorter episode.
* My hair is growing in much healthier, even with dying it last week. 
* My skin looks a bit less dry and aged & I’ve been sleeping much better. 
* My digestion issues have cleared up a lot and it continues to improve.
* I lost a few pounds. I didn’t really expect it and wasn’t trying, but there it went!

I’m very happy with these results!

How to Add Gelatin to your Diet

How did I do it? I bought plain gelatin and mixed it with Jello every 4 days. I have an extreme sweet tooth so this worked great for me. Especially for those after dinner cravings! You could eat gelatin plain without the flavored stuff mixed in, but it’s not that great tasting.

I used 1 large ‘table’ spoon full of unflavored gelatin. (not a Tbsp. measuring spoon, a silver dinner spoon) I added 1 1/2 – 2 cups boiling water and stirred gently till absorbed. Then I add 1 packet sugar free Jello style dessert mix. Mix thoroughly then chill and cut into squares.

I ate 1/4 of this mixture each day consuming most of it after dinner. That’s 1/2 cup a day, less if you only used 1.5 cups of water. Yes, I used commercial flavored, chemical crap. Yes…it was good! 😂 I did find that Walmart brand ‘Jello’ is the cheapest and it tastes the same. 

Different ways to eat gelatin

I also experimented with adding my own juices and flavorings but have yet to settle on a fail-proof recipe, so I’ll work on that! I did find a strawberry jello cup recipe from Attainable Sustainable that is A-Mazing though…so check that out in the meantime.

I also made homemade marshmallows a few times. They were so good and even the kids loved them. I’ll post that recipe soon.

Also, a few days a month I make a bone broth which is rich in gelatin. Bone broth is awesome because you can eat it alone or use it to flavor rice, vegetable dishes or as a soup/stew base. It’s easy to set & forget in the crock pot, so very little work. It can also be canned so a big batch can last a long time!

Here is an excellent post on using a turkey to make Bone Broth by Back To Our Roots.

I started by buying bulk gelatin from the Amish store by me, however I have found a grass fed beef gelatin that I really like. This one by Great Lakes is very similar to Knox or the stuff I bought. (the first gelatin I bought tended to smell a little like wet dog when I mixed it up, the Great Lakes was much better in that department!)

Speaking of which you could buy Knox at your local store, but it’s much more expensive than a bulk version.

Gelatin VS Collagen

You may have heard about collagen peptides being used for their health benefits. Gelatin is actually a degraded form of collagen, so they are slightly different but have almost all of the same benefits. 

I originally wrote this article in 2015, and the collagen craze was not what it is now, so information and products weren’t as widely available as now. I have since started using gelatin and collagen interchangeably and have continued getting many of the same results.

The lone sticking point for me has been weight loss, as the sugar free Jell-O style dessert actually helped me with cravings for sweets. Any time you reduce your daily calories it can have an effect on your weight. Collagen peptides are tasteless, therefore they do not help with sugar cravings.

Collagen can be mixed into cold liquids which makes it more versatile than gelatin for drinks. The main difference is their thickening properties, which collagen does not have at all. Collagen also comes in capsule or pill form if you prefer that.

Great Lakes brand also has collagen that’s water soluble. That one is great for smoothies and adding to other drinks and recipes. As mentioned it doesn’t gel or thicken the same so it’s practically unnoticeable once mixed in, which makes it very easy to drink every day. I find collagen more portable, but gelatin more practical for daily use, since it can also be a dessert. 

I have a lot more experimenting that I want to do with recipes and different ways to add gelatin to my diet. These last few months have convinced me that adding gelatin to my diet daily has made a huge improvement and now I’m just searching for ways to simplify it for the long run!

Since writing this post I have found so many great resources for information on why and how to add gelatin to your daily diet including Martha Stewart’s recipe for homemade marshmallows.

Many other common foods have health benefits too! Check out these articles: The many health benefits of ginger,

Is Gelatin Good for You? Plus, How to Use It

  • Gelatin is so much more than a jiggly dessert. Gelatin is a potent protein that supports healthy skin, bones and joints.†
  • Collagen peptides and gelatin are both animal products that have identical amino acid profiles. The difference is that gelatin sets as it cools, adding body to jellies, sauces, gummies and more.
  • Bulletproof Collagelatin is gelatin plus hydrolyzed collagen protein from pasture-raised cows. Use it anytime you would normally use gelatin. Keep reading for delicious recipes!

The gelatin of your childhood probably starred in jellies, marshmallows and gummy candies. Turns out, gelatin benefits your body beyond just your tastebuds: It’s a potent protein that supports healthy skin, bones and joints, plus strong nails and hair.†

That’s because gelatin provides your body with the amino acids that people don’t get from other sources. Unless you eat plenty of animal parts, bone broth and organ meats, you’ll probably benefit from an extra boost of gelatin powder.

But what is gelatin made of, and is gelatin good for you? Read on to explore the health benefits of gelatin, plus a few of our best gelatin recipes.

What is gelatin made of?

Gelatin is made by cooking down collagen protein found in the skin, hooves, connective tissues and bones of animals. The cooking process breaks down the bonds between proteins to make smaller, more bioavailable building blocks that your body can easily absorb.

Like collagen, gelatin is packed with beneficial amino acids—especially the anti-aging superstars glycine and proline, which are lacking in the standard Western diet.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Essential amino acids must come from food; your body naturally produces other amino acids, which are considered conditionally essential. These amino acids make gelatin especially powerful for supporting plump and hydrated skin, joint mobility and bone repair.

The same elastic properties that make collagen so beneficial to our skin and connective tissue also make it handy as a gelling agent in food. Gelatin has the unique ability to cause liquids to gel, giving foods like jellies, gravy and jam their unique texture. This feature opens up a whole new world of culinary possibilities, from rich sauces to fluffy pies.

Gelatin vs. hydrolyzed collagen

Gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen (also called collagen hydrolysate or collagen peptides) are nutritionally similar. Both are made by cooking and breaking down collagen-rich foods, like bone, cartilage and hooves. This process breaks down the amino acids in collagen, making it easier to digest and absorb in your intestinal tract.

Because they come from the same sources, gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen provide the same valuable amino acids and nutrition profiles, with slightly different properties:

  • The extra processing used to make hydrolyzed collagen breaks the amino acids into smaller pieces, which some people find easier to absorb
  • Hydrolyzed collagen (like Bulletproof Collagen Protein) can dissolve in hot or cold water, while gelatin requires hot water
  • Gelatin causes liquid to gel when it cools. That’s how gelatin adds thickness to sauces, jellies or even ice cream

Bulletproof Collagelatin is a blend of beef gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen from pasture-raised cows. That means you get both proteins in one versatile powder that gels when it cools.

Use Collagelatin anytime you’d reach for standard gelatin—it’s unflavored, so it’s great in anything from soups to desserts.

Is gelatin good for you?

If you’re seeking a versatile pantry staple with whole-body benefits, then gelatin is your answer. Find out why we keep Collagelatin in the kitchen at all times.

Supports glowing skin

Your daily skin care routine and gelatin go hand-in-hand. Grass-fed gelatin provides the necessary proteins to improve your skin’s moisture and elasticity, and it can even help prevent wrinkles.[1][2]

Your body especially needs the amino acid glycine, as well as proline and hydroxyproline, to build its own collagen. That matters because collagen is one of the vital elements of healthy skin. Your body tends to produce less collagen as you age, so readily providing these building blocks helps fight off wrinkles and sagging skin.

Pro tip: Pair your gelatin and collagen intake with vitamin C to support your body’s natural collagen production. Vitamin C-rich foods include strawberries, citrus and broccoli.

Related: How Do Collagen Supplements Work? What the Science Says

Supports mobility

Gelatin’s elastic properties go more than skin-deep. It also promotes healing and resilience in your connective tissues.

Studies show that hydrolyzed collagen supplementation, like gelatin, increases joint comfort and increases the density of your cartilage, making your joints more durable.[3][4][5]

Improves bone health

As we age, so do our bones. When you take steps to support bone health, you can help keep your bones and body strong—and gelatin can help you along the way.

You reach peak bone mass (the maximum strength and density of your bones) in your late teens and early 20s. Bone mass then starts to decrease, with the most changes seen in women going through menopause.[6]

Thankfully, you can support healthy bones with healthy lifestyle changes like strength training, staying at a healthy weight, eating calcium-rich foods—and taking collagen supplements such as gelatin.

Research shows that collagen supplements provide the amino acids our body needs in order to support healthy bones.[7]

How to add more gelatin to your diet

Your ancestors reaped all the benefits of gelatin and collagen by using every part of the animals they consumed. With less and less whole-animal eating in the Western diet, most people have lost this source of gelatin.

Here are two ways to incorporate gelatin in your diet:

  1. Up your intake of foods that include animal cartilage, bones or skin. That means dishes with often-overlooked cuts of meat like tripe and oxtail, as well as slow-cooked Chicken Feet Bone Broth or Cardamom Ginger Bone Marrow Broth
  2. Try gelatin supplements, which you can find in capsules or powders. Powdered gelatin is great in baking and food prep, but for the best results, go with a gelatin powder that dissolves easily like Bulletproof Collagelatin

Speaking of high quality, it counts when you’re looking at gelatin powders. Keep reading to find out why.

Gelatin powder: What to look for when buying

Because gelatin is made from cattle, chickens, fish or pigs, select your gelatin the same way you would choose your meats. While a box of Jell-O from the grocery store will still make a squishy dessert, the perks stop there.

Opt instead for grass-fed, pasture-raised gelatins to reap the gelatin benefits and avoid exposure to residues from pesticides, hormones and antibiotics.

Unfortunately for vegans and vegetarians, gelatin is only derived from animal sources. Many vegan recipes use agar agar, made from red seaweed, as a gelatin alternative. While agar agar works similarly as a gelling agent, it doesn’t have the protein and nutritional properties found in gelatin.

Our best gelatin recipes

Check out our full roundup of gelatin recipes here, or try one of these favorites below!

If you’re cooking with Collagelatin, use it as a 1:1 replacement for straight gelatin in your favorite recipes.

Bone Broth

A hearty broth made with the leftover bones and cartilage bits from your organic, grass-fed meats is one easy way to make your own gelatin. Bone broth packs all the benefits of gelatin and collagen, plus a cornucopia of healthy fats, trace minerals and vital nutrients. Try this recipe at home, or find an organic, grass-fed bone broth in your local health food store.

Pro tip: If your bone broth congeals slightly when you pop it in the fridge, you know you’ve got plenty of the good stuff.

No-Bean Keto Chili

Chili without beans?! Trust us, you won’t miss them. This simple recipe can be done on the stovetop or in your slow cooker.

All you need to do is brown up your meat and veggies, then combine them with the rest of the ingredients. Put the cornstarch back in your pantry because this chili is thickened with 1 to 2 tablespoons of Bulletproof Collagelatin.

The end result is a hearty chili full of healthy fats and protein that will keep you full for hours.

Keto S’Mores

Get ready to have s’mores without the high sugar and bonfire. The recipe utilizes protein-packed Collagelatin to form marshmallows and Bulletproof Grass-Fed Ghee to create the graham cracker. The end result is a nostalgic dessert that won’t send your blood sugar through the roof due to the natural sweeteners.

Keto Rocky Road Bars

Gelatin desserts go way beyond Jello-O. Keto Rocky Road Bars are another marshmallow masterpiece all thanks to the body-nourishing Collagelatin. The best part is you can personalize these bars how you want. Looking for more healthy fats and texture? Mix in raw nuts or unsweetened coconut shreds.

Magical Frozen Fudge Pops

A popsicle high in quality fats and low in sugar does exist when you combine together nutritious ingredients such as Collagelatin, egg yolks, Bulletproof Brain Octane C8 MCT Oil and coconut cream. All you need are popsicle molds and you have a frozen treat that pairs well with a drizzle of cacao melts or berries.

Role of collagen hydrolysate in bone and joint disease


To review the current status of collagen hydrolysate in the treatment of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.


Review of past and current literature relative to collagen hydrolysate metabolism, and assessment of clinical investigations of therapeutic trials in osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.


Hydrolyzed gelatin products have long been used in pharmaceuticals and foods; these products are generally recognized as safe food products by regulatory agencies. Pharmaceutical-grade collagen hydrolysate (PCH) is obtained by hydrolysis of pharmaceutical gelatin. Clinical studies suggest that the ingestion of 10 g PCH daily reduces pain in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip; blood concentration of hydroxyproline is increased. Clinical use is associated with minimal adverse effects, mainly gastrointestinal, characterized by fullness or unpleasant taste. In a multicenter, randomized, doubleblind, placebo-controlled trial performed in clinics in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, results showed no statistically significant differences for the total study group (all sites) for differences of mean pain score for pain. There was, however, a significant treatment advantage of PCH over placebo in German sites. In addition, increased efficacy for PCH as compared to placebo was observed in the overall study population amongst patients with more severe symptomatology at study onset. Preferential accumulation of 14C-labeled gelatin hydrolysate in cartilage as compared with administration of 14C-labeled proline has been reported. This preferential uptake by cartilage suggests that PCH may have a salutary effect on cartilage metabolism. Given the important role for collagen in bone structure, the effect of PCH on bone metabolism in osteoporotic persons has been evaluated. Studies of the effects of calcitonin with and without a collagen hydrolysate-rich diet suggested that calcitonin plus PCH had a greater effect in inhibiting bone collagen breakdown than calcitonin alone, as characterized by a fall in levels of urinary pyridinoline cross-links. PCH appeared to have an additive effect relative to use of calcitonin alone.


Collagen hydrolysate is of interest as a therapeutic agent of potential utility in the treatment of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Its high level of safety makes it attractive as an agent for long-term use in these chronic disorders.

– I recently heard that gelatin is very beneficial for bones and joints. Is it true?

Irina, Glusk

– Supporters and opponents of the use of gelatin are constantly debating whether this product is useful to the body or harmful. We will not take either one or the other side, we will offer you the information we found about gelatin, and you yourself draw your own conclusions.

Gelatin is a product in the form of plates or crystals, tasteless and odorless, obtained from the tissues of animals and fish. It is obtained by extracting sticky substances from meat, joints and tendons of animals, mainly cattle. Gelatin was officially invented and patented by engineer Peter Cooper in 1845, but almost 50 years after the invention, no one could find a use for it.Many considered it just a useless product, until another enterprising inventor, Pearl Waite, came up with the idea of ​​making a delicious dessert called jelly from gelatin. Later, the product earned the recognition of culinary experts all over the world.

Today, a lot of tasty and healthy dishes are made from it – fish and meat aspic, jellied meat, jellies, creams, soufflés, marshmallows. In the food industry, it is used for the manufacture of canned fish and meat, gelatin is indispensable in the production of ice cream – thanks to it, proteins do not fold, and sugar does not crystallize. The weight of gelatin is greater than that of water, so it swells 2 – 3 times in cool water, and dissolves well in warm water. Pouring boiling water over gelatin is not recommended.

Gelatin is used in pharmaceuticals, in the production of capsules for medicines. The preparations in them are well preserved, and in the stomach, these capsules dissolve easily. In non-food industries, gelatin is used in the manufacture of adhesives and printing inks, perfumes, photographic materials and cosmetics.

According to its composition, gelatin is of protein origin – more than 85% of its composition are proteins.Of the minerals it contains calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, iron. The composition of gelatin contains useful and necessary amino acids: glycine, which provides the body with the energy required for normal life, has a positive effect on mental activity, and hydroxyproline and proline, which contribute to the development, preservation and restoration of connective tissues and cartilage. And collagen is also abundant in gelatin.

Gelatin is a dietary product.All dishes containing gelatin are perfectly absorbed by the body and do not cause increased secretion of the digestive glands. Thanks to collagen, you can improve the condition of hair and nails, make joints more mobile and elastic. If you have brittle bones, eat foods with gelatin regularly, and it is also recommended for people suffering from osteochondrosis and arthritis. American physiologists have found that gelatin may well be used to prevent the destruction of articular cartilage.In people with osteoarthritis of the knee joints, two weeks after regular use of gelatin, muscle strengthening and restoration of joint mobility were noted. By the way, gelatin is also useful when applied externally, for example, in the form of face masks or strengthening nail baths. The amino acids contained in gelatin are a source of energy for the body, strengthen the heart muscle, and have a beneficial effect on mental activity. Gelatin is useful for low blood clotting.Regular consumption of jelly, jelly and mousse with gelatin is indicated for gastric, pulmonary, intestinal and other bleeding. Of course, homemade gelatin will be more useful for the human body – first of all, this is the very usual “jellied meat” that every housewife knows how to cook, as well as a variety of jellies, aspic dishes, brawn, jellies and mousses.

A simple compress will help get rid of obsessive pain in the joints. It is best done at night.A wide gauze napkin is dipped in hot water to warm it up. Then it is twisted, squeezing out excess moisture. The napkin is folded several times and a teaspoon of gelatin powder is poured between the middle layers. It is applied to the sore joint, covered with plastic wrap, wrapped in a woolen scarf or terry towel, and the bandage is fixed on top with a bandage. To achieve the maximum therapeutic effect, a gelatin compress should be placed on the problem joint every day for at least a week. But in any case, if you have problems with joints, see your doctor to find out and treat the cause of the pain, and use this compress as a temporary pain reliever.

As for the harm of gelatin, there are no particular contraindications to eating it. As with any other product, you need to know when to stop. In extremely rare cases, gelatin causes allergic reactions. Care should be taken to include gelatin-based dishes in the diet for people suffering from diseases of the cardiovascular system – its excess somewhat increases blood clotting, which is undesirable in atherosclerosis of the blood vessels.Gelatin, like lettuce, sorrel, spinach, cocoa, chocolate, is oxalogen (that is, it promotes the formation of oxalate stones), therefore its use in large quantities is undesirable in case of a violation of water-salt metabolism, manifested by the precipitation of oxalic acid salts in the urine, and with urolithiasis. However, this product has no specific contraindications. In addition, gelatin has a slight bonding effect.

Of course, you should not treat gelatin as a panacea, they say, ate a bowl of cold – and immediately the joints moved faster, wrinkles smoothed out, nails grew.No, of course it won’t. But it is quite possible to support your body, help in serious treatment. By the way, everything written above applies only to gelatin of animal origin, the one to which we are mostly accustomed. There are also herbal counterparts, pectin and agar-agar, obtained from fruits and seaweed. But vegetable gelatin already has completely different properties, only the ability to gelling has in common with the usual one.

90,000 Treatment of joints with gelatin: myth or reality

There has long been a distrust of traditional medicine in society.It was formed due to the relatively low level of training of doctors. For this reason, people are looking for ways to improve their health that are not medication-related. In fairness, it should be said that there are a lot of them and they really help some. Reviews on the treatment of joints with gelatin, just from this section. Many people know about foot problems. Inflammatory processes (arthritis) and physical changes in cartilage tissue (arthrosis) have dramatically changed the way of life for more than one person. Maybe gelatin is a panacea? Or is it a placebo?

Aria of the Wrong Opera

Gelatin is processed collagen, which in turn forms the basis of the connective tissue of our body.She is not responsible for the work of organs, but only performs an auxiliary function. In our case, this is the strength and elasticity of ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and so on. By about the age of 25, the production of collagen protein in the body stops and the process begins, which is popularly called aging.

Derived from the bones of animals, birds or fish, gelatin is a low-level protein that does not contain amino acids that are self-absorbed by the body. To bring at least some benefit, he must enter into a chemical reaction with something.Since this is impossible, it does not in any way affect the state of the bone tissue. You can eat as much jelly as you like, but you will not become healthier and, for example, the skin on your face will not tighten. However, there is one weighty “BUT”.

As a drug, this protein, in certain doses, increases the volume of blood circulating in the body. Consequently, the joints begin to wash better with it, which undoubtedly affects their mobility. As a result, pain symptoms disappear.

From this point of view, gelatin can be considered as a remedy “for joints”, although in fact in medicine it is used to increase blood pressure, therefore, it is administered intravenously.The aria is a little not from that opera, but it has the right to exist. So, do not deny yourself the pleasure.

Knee injuries can involve ligaments, tendons, or bursae (bursa), as well as the bones and cartilaginous structures that make up the joint itself. Gelatin is a mixture of proteins that results from collagen hydrolysis. During hydrolysis, the bonds between collagen molecules and within the molecules themselves are destroyed. In this case, a variety of small proteins (oligopeptides) are formed, which together make up gelatin.And what kind of proteins will prevail in it depends on what enzymes were used to hydrolyze (break down) collagen.

Continuing the gelatin theme: tinaword – LiveJournal

There are many recipes for using gelatin for joints. Most are for oral use, although there are also prescriptions for homemade topical medications.

Gelatin tincture.
In the evening, put 5 g of gelatin (2 level teaspoons) in a glass, fill halfway with water. Insist until morning. When you wake up, you need to dilute the tincture with fruit juice and drink it on an empty stomach. The morning meal should take place half an hour after taking the medicine. You should do the same every day. The minimum course of treatment is a month.

Gelatin with milk.
Take 2/3 cup milk, add 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of gelatin.Stir. After 1 hour, put on fire, heat, but do not bring to a boil. Stir until smooth. Let cool at room temperature. Then refrigerate for a few hours. The output will be healthy for joints and tasty jelly.

Gelatin compress.
Soak a gauze bandage in water. Place 1-2 teaspoons of gelatin on its surface. Apply a compress to the affected joint. Wrap with a terry towel or warm scarf.Lie down for at least 2 hours. Do not make any movements in the painful joint.

How to drink and how much? With diseases of the joints, spine or skin, taking collagen will not be superfluous. Although its effectiveness is not 100% proven, it is still better to take it than to miss the opportunity to improve the condition of the musculoskeletal system. It is likely that gelatin will help reduce pain, increase mobility, and improve the quality of life of a person with joint pathology.

A dose of 10 g of gelatin per day, in 2 doses, is sufficient.
You can use one of the above recipes, or simply eat a serving of gelatin with a spoon and wash it down with water – it doesn’t matter. It makes no difference how exactly gelatin enters your digestive tract, at what time of day you will take it, and what foods will “coexist” with it in the stomach.

How long to take gelatin?
If you suffer from a pathology of the musculoskeletal system, it is most likely a chronic disease that will never be cured.Therefore, you need to take gelatin continuously. If you are healthy, there is no point in using the product for prevention. It is unable to reduce the risk of joint or spinal disease. It is possible that gelatin can be taken by athletes to reduce the likelihood of injury, but this effect is based on speculation and lacks evidence.

Is there any sense in topical application of gelatin? Yes there is.
It can be applied to open wounds to speed up their healing. In this case, gelatin should not be diluted in water, but in an antiseptic or sterile saline solution.As for its application to the joints affected by the pathological process, there is no point in such actions. Gelatin is made up of proteins, and the protein molecules are too large to penetrate the joint through the skin.

Gelatin, if we talk about it as a medicine, collects mostly positive reviews. Many women are convinced that this food supplement: improves skin condition, smoothes it, removes wrinkles; strengthens joints and overall health; accelerates hair growth if you make a gelatin mask; reduces pain in the spine.
Conclusion Gelatin is a hydrolyzed collagen that is believed to have beneficial effects on joint health in diseases of the musculoskeletal system. To obtain a clinical effect, it must be taken 10 g daily, in 1 or 2 doses. Expected results: increase in joint mobility, decrease in the severity of pain syndrome, strengthening of bones and ligaments. These effects are realized several months after the start of gelatin intake. Its prophylactic use, according to most studies, does not make sense, since gelatin does not reduce the risk of pathology of the musculoskeletal system.

Gelatin – what is it?

We all in one way or another meet with gelatin, even if we are not aware of it. It is used to make marmalade, jelly and aspic, and it has many nutrients.

Gelatin is a type of protein obtained from the partial hydrolysis of collagen.Gelatin is of animal origin, as a result of which it contains important amino acids, the “building blocks” of protein.

In fact, the unique composition of gelatin is the source of all its beneficial properties, which we will discuss below.

What is Gelatin?

What is gelatin made of? Are animals suffering from gelatin production?

Gelatin is a type of protein produced in dry powder form. It is obtained from isolated and dehydrated parts of animals, including skin, bones, and tissues.

It doesn’t sound very appetizing, but it doesn’t taste or smell.

In cooking, gelatin is used to make jellies, desserts and sweets. It acts as an adhesive. The gelling properties of gelatin, in fact, make it very useful, as thanks to them, the substance helps to form strong cartilage and connective tissues that give the body elasticity.

Fortunately, gelatin is present not only in desserts with a high sugar content, but also in aspic, jellied meat, jelly, bone broth, fish and canned meat.

Did you know that bone broth is a rich source of gelatin? Beef bone broth, for example, is used to make beef gelatin. For this reason, broth is also often used to combat food allergies and intolerances, digestive problems, leaky gut syndrome, autoimmune disorders and more.

Gelatin contains amino acids, including glycine, which strengthen the intestinal mucosa and therefore reduce inflammation.Doctors use glycine to improve digestion and skin health, joints, cardiovascular health, and cognitive health.

Health Benefits

Do we need an additional intake of gelatin?

For most people, it is really necessary. The diet of our ancestors, as a rule, included a large amount of gelatin due to the habit of eating all the prey whole.

Today, the average person consumes relatively small amounts of this substance (along with other compounds of animal origin, for example, collagen), since we refuse many edible parts of animals.There is no gelatin in chicken breast or filet mignon, and we simply throw away the “gelling” components, for example, skin, bone marrow and tendons.

Of course, our body is able to produce many amino acids on its own, but with age, in the case of severe inflammation, intestinal upset or weakened joints, we need an increased amount of amino acids.

As for vegetarians, they do not consume gelatin at all. Vegans and vegetarians avoid the consumption of animal products, in which case agar agar serves as an alternative to gelatin.

A properly formulated vegetarian diet is very healthy, but it increases the risk of a lack of essential amino acids in the body, which is associated with the rejection of sources of “complete proteins”: meat, fish, eggs and dairy products.

But gelatin has many beneficial properties:

1. Improves intestinal health and digestion

Like collagen, gelatin can prevent intestinal disturbances and strengthen the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, preventing permeability and leaky gut syndrome.

Healthy gut lining is one of the body’s most reliable defense mechanisms, as it keeps food particles, bacteria and yeast inside the digestive system, preventing them from entering the bloodstream and causing inflammation.

Gelatin is able to normalize the production of a sufficient amount of gastric juice, which is necessary for proper digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients. The glycine in gelatin helps rebuild the stomach lining and maintain the balance of digestive enzymes and gastric juices.

Not getting enough enzymes / gastric juices10 can cause digestive disturbances, including nutritional deficiencies, acid reflux, bloating, bowel upset, and anemia. Older people tend to be more prone to digestive disorders, as the production of digestive juices decreases as a result of the aging process.

Finally, gelatin is able to absorb water and other fluids, helping to prevent fluid retention, bloating, and constipation.

2. Protects joints and relieves joint pain

Gelatin and collagen are known to relieve symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is especially common in the elderly and is one of the most common causes of joint pain. With age, joints become less elastic and mobile, this is due to the destruction of collagen in them.

Gelatin and collagen help to halt chronic inflammatory reactions by reducing pain and slowing down the development of diseases that can lead to joint dysfunction, such as degenerative joint disease.

Research shows that people with osteoarthritis, joint pain, osteoporosis, and exercise-induced injury and pain may benefit from additional gelatin. In clinical trials, volunteers who consumed about 2 grams of gelatin per day noted a decrease in inflammation, joint or muscle pain, faster recovery, and even an increase in physical performance compared to the placebo group.

3.Helps improve sleep quality

Some studies have found that taking three grams of gelatin before bed can help people with insomnia or poor sleep quality.

Scientists have studied the effect of gelatin on subjective sleep quality and found that it can help relieve daytime sleepiness, improve cognitive function during the day, improve sleep quality and sleep efficiency (sleep time / time in bed), and shorten the time to fall asleep and improve the sleep phase. sleep without altering normal / healthy sleep architecture.

Glycine can be as effective as traditional sleeping pills with side effects.

4. Improves mood and increases cognitive abilities of the brain

The amino acid glycine is considered an “inhibitory neurotransmitter”. This means that it acts as an antidepressant and anti-anxiety agent, but without complications or adverse effects.

Treatment with glycine and other forms of amino acids naturally increases mental clarity and reduces feelings of anxiety, as amino acids help lower the production of “stress hormones” (eg norepinephrine) and increase the production of “joy hormones” (eg GABA ).

About half of the inhibitory synapses in the spinal cord use glycine. Research shows that when this substance is not metabolized properly, the risk of developmental disorders, such as lethargy, seizures, and mental retardation, increases.

5. Improves the quality of leather

Worried about wrinkles, sun exposure, age spots and other signs of aging? We have good news for you: Taking gelatin (and directly applying collagen) helps improve your appearance through positive effects on skin health and cell repair.

Collagen is called the main building block of the skin, on which youth and healthy appearance largely depend.

Gelatin is involved in the renewal of skin cells and also helps protect it from UV and free radical damage, wrinkles, and possibly even some forms of cancer.

One of the reasons for the appearance of signs of aging is a decrease in the amount of collagen in the skin. This process begins by the age of 30 and then only gains momentum.With the loss of collagen, cellulite begins to appear, the skin becomes less elastic.

The older we get, the more necessary additional sources of collagen become, which would help us hide the effects of stress and poor ecology on our skin. Increasing your consumption of gelatin will help you naturally improve the quality of your skin, stimulate the production of unfragmented collagen, restore skin strength, and improve the condition and appearance of your hair, nails and teeth.

6. Helps maintain heart health

One of the main beneficial properties of gelatin is its ability to neutralize the action of chemical compounds that we get from meat. Animal products – meat (chicken, turkey, beef, etc.), eggs – are rich sources of the amino acid methionine.

Despite the unconditional benefits of methionine in excess, this essential amino acid increases the risk of heart problems and other ailments, as it increases the amount of homocysteine ​​in the blood.The more methionine we consume, the more other nutrients we need to combat the negative effects of homocysteine.

High concentrations of homocysteine ​​in the blood are associated with increased levels of inflammation and the risk of developing diseases such as atherosclerosis and other forms of cardiovascular disease, stroke, cognitive impairment of the brain, and bone loss.

But this does not mean that you need to give up animal products.You just need to balance your diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need.

7. Supports bone strength

The skeletal system needs a constant supply of nutrients to maintain its density and strength. Gelatin contains a large amount of substances such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon and sulfur, which help protect bones from cracks, fractures and loss of density.Also, these substances are actively involved in the restoration of bones.

Research to date suggests that gelatin (a collagen hydrolyzate) may act as a safe therapeutic agent for osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, even with prolonged use for chronic disorders.

8. Promotes saturation

A number of studies have shown that, like any protein source, a dietary supplement with gelatin (up to 20 grams) promotes faster satiety and helps control the production of hunger hormones.

At the moment, there is no information to prove that gelatin can be used as a means to combat fat mass. However, this substance can increase the production of satiety hormones, such as leptin, and reduce the production of appetite-inducing hormones, such as ghrelin, in overweight people.

Nutritional properties

After isolation from collagen, gelatin in dry weight is 98-99% protein. It contains “an unusually high amount of amino acids glycine and proline”, which are conditionally essential and are synthesized in our body in only a small amount.

The composition of gelatin contains the following amino acids:

  • 21% glycine
  • 12% proline
  • 12% hydroxyproline
  • 10% glutamic acid
  • 9% alanine
  • 8% arginine
  • 6% aspartic acid
  • 4% lysine

The most valuable amino acid that we obtain from gelatin is glycine.Glycine, along with other amino acids, for example, proline, contains collagen, which is necessary for imparting strength and durability to connective tissues.

Glycine is also important for the elimination of heavy metals and toxins from the body that we obtain from food and the environment.

By consuming large amounts of glycine, we increase the production of glutathione, which helps cleanse the liver and blood of harmful substances.

Gelatin also contains a lot of proline, which has the following beneficial properties:

  • Together with glycine participates in the formation of collagen and connective tissues.
  • Participates in the breakdown of other proteins in the body.
  • Helps to form new cells.
  • Supports healthy muscle tissue.
  • Protects the digestive system from permeability.
  • Prevents muscle loss in distance runners and athletes.

How to get

The best way to get gelatin is to consume all parts of the animal, from nose to tail, while using bones and connective tissues to make broths and soups.

To get gelatin from bone broth at home, you need to:

  • Prepare about 1.5 kg of meat of meadow animals, 3-4 liters of filtered water and 1 tablespoon of sea salt. You can also add herbs, vegetables, or vinegar to taste.
  • Put all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook for at least overnight, but no more than two days.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the gelatin from the surface.
  • Leave in the refrigerator until the fat solidifies.
  • Remove fat and leave to cook. Gelatin can be stored in the refrigerator for a week or up to a year in the freezer.

How to Use (Recipes)

If the inclusion of animal parts containing collagen and gelatin or bone broth in the diet is not possible, then gelatin in powder form may be an alternative to you.

The use of gelatin in cooking will allow you to add volume and smooth texture to dishes in a small amount of calories.It also increases the amount of protein in the meal, making it more nutritious.

Gelatin is a natural thickener, stabilizer and texturizer.

  • If you do not plan on making gelatin at home, you can purchase gelatin powder at your nearest supermarket or online.
  • Hydrolyzed gelatin powder is added to a liquid such as a broth, juice or smoothie.
  • When choosing gelatin, you can find plates, granules and powder on the shelves.It is usually soaked in water, which it absorbs and turns into a gel.
  • Most gelatin powders must be soaked in cold water before use and then dissolved in warm or hot water. Swollen gelatin can be easily mixed with liquid without lumping. Once it dissolves in the hot liquid, you can chill the mixture so it will have a jelly-like texture.

What does gelatin taste like?

Gelatin is tasteless and odorless.The flavor is given by dishes to which it is added, for example, ingredients in desserts or smoothies.

What is the recommended amount of gelatin every day?

The recommended intake of gelatin for an adult is 1-2 servings of the food supplement per day. A serving is usually one scoop of powder containing approximately 19 grams of protein. A portion is designed for 0.5 liters of liquid (for the complete dissolution of gelatin, the temperature of the liquid must be at least 80 ° C).

Gelatin is used to prepare the following recipes:

  • Healthy homemade jelly (stevia or monk fruit can be used instead of regular sugar)
  • Homemade gummies (choose 100% natural juice without added sugar)
  • Fast Bone Broth with Gelatin
  • Strawberry mousse

You can also add some gelatin to soups, stews, baked goods, and desserts like puddings, mousses, custard, and even pie dough.

Where else is gelatin found?

Vegans and vegetarians should be aware that gelatin may be present in foods such as:

  • Marshmallow
  • Gummies
  • Candy
  • Yoghurts
  • Frozen vegetables
  • Glaze
  • Cheese cream
  • Sour cream
  • Cough syrups

Risks and side effects

Gelatin is well tolerated even by those with digestive disorders.However, it is best to “start dating” this substance using a small amount, for example half a serving, and gradually, in the absence of an adverse reaction, increase to the recommended rate.

It is worth remembering that the highest quality gelatin and collagen are found in the body of animals that have been properly grown. For this reason, try to choose environmentally friendly and organic meats that also contain more beneficial minerals, fatty acids (more omega-3 and less omega-6) and fewer harmful elements.

We recommend purchasing gelatin and collagen from free-range animals that have not consumed GMO foods or chemicals. It is important not only what, but also where you buy gelatin. Be especially careful when choosing beef gelatin, as a poor-quality product can contract spongiform encephalopathy, also known as mad cow disease.

  • Gelatin is a type of protein derived from collagen. It is found in some parts of animals and contains a large number of amino acids, the “building blocks” of proteins.
  • In dry weight, gelatin is 98-99% protein. It is believed to be unusually rich in amino acids such as glycine and proline.
  • Most people do not consume enough gelatin because we do not eat animal parts such as skin, bone marrow, and tendons (as our ancestors did).
  • Bone broth, which is often used to relieve symptoms of food allergies and intolerances, digestive disorders, leaky gut, autoimmune disorders, is a rich source of gelatin.
  • Gelatin helps to treat the underlying causes of gastrointestinal diseases such as intestinal inflammation. It also protects joints and relieves joint pain, maintains skin elasticity, strengthens the heart and skeleton, and promotes satiety.
