First off you can spell it Gelatin or Gelatine we will use both. It is created from isolating and dehydrating parts of animals, such as skin, bones and tissue. Then dried into powder, which is what we have here. Gelatin is almost totally colourless and tasteless.
Gelatin is used in food preparation and as a the base of jellies, desserts and sweets because of it sticky adhesive consitency, it is almost a natural glue. It is this gelatinous quality that makes it beneficial to the human body, this is what allows Gelatine to aid in the formation of strong cartilage or connective tissue that gives our bodies elasticity.
Gelatin provides essential amino acids like glycine that strengthen the gut lining, lowering inflammation. Glycine iself is used by doctors to help improve digestive, joint, cardiovascular, cognitive and skin health.

Gut / Digestive Health & Satiety
Much like collagen, Gelatine is beneficial against intestinal damage and could support the lining of our digestive tract. The gut lining is one of our body’s vital lines of defence, this is because it keeps particles from food, bacteria and yeast inside the digestive system where they belong, preventing leakage into our bloodstream, this would trigger inflammation. Gelatine may improve our ability to produce adequate gastric acid secretions which are required for healthy digestion and absorption. Above we mentioned Glycine that comes from Gelatine, well this is important for restoring mucosal lining in our stomachs, facilitating with the balance of digestive enzymes and stomach acid.
If we don’t produce the correct amount of enzymes/stomach acid, we could experience digestive issues such as indigestion, bloating, nutrient deficiencies, acid reflux and even anemia. With age we can experience more digestive problems because many vital digestive juices lowered during the ageing or stress. Gelatin absorbs water and fluids, this helps prevent fluid retention and bloating while improving constipation. Certain studies have found that taking up to 20g of Gelatin helps increase satiety and control hunger hormones.While it has’t been proven to be a helpful weight loss tool, it seems capable of increasing satiety hormones like leptin and lowering appetite hormones like ghrelin.
Joints & Bones
Gelatin is rich in batural nutrients like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon and sulphur, these help form bones and prevent fractures or bone loss. Our bones require a steady supply of nutrients to maintain their density and strength. These nutrients are also great for the healing of bones. Researchers now believe that Gelatine (collagen hydrolysate) can act like a safe, therapeutic agent for osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
With age, many of us tend to develop more stiffness, aches and limited mobility that worsen over time since Collagen continues to break down and erode. Gelatin and Collagen help stall chronic inflammatory responses, which reduces pain and stops progressive disease that lead to impairments in joint function.
Research shows that people with joint/bone-related problems and exercise-related soreness or injuries may benefit from supplementing with Gelatin. In clinical trials, people taking Gelatin (around 2g daily) tend to experience less inflammation, less pain in the joints or muscles, improved recovery, and even improved athletic abilities compared to those who took a placebo.
Easy to use...
The ancient diets of our ancestors typically included high amounts of Gelatin, it is known they had a “nose-to-tail” way of eating animals. The typical diet of modern humans lacks Gelatin (and Collagen) since many nurtritionally superior edible animal parts are now so often discarded. Eating chicken breast or filet mignon will not supply Gelatin, it’s the “gelatinous” parts of the animals that aren’t usually consumed nowadays, including the animal’s skin, bone marrow and tendons.
While we can make some of the amino acids on our own, we might require more as we age and if we have high levels of inflammation, compromised digestion, weak joints or damaged bones.
Another group likely running very low in gelatin is vegetarians. Considering vegetarians and vegans don’t eat most or all animal products, they have no exposure to it on a normal basis, instead opting for gelatin substitutes like agar agar. A mostly vegetarian diet might be healthy if done carefully, but it raises your risk for being low in all essential amino acids the human body requires since it eliminates “complete proteins” like meat, fish, and sometimes eggs and dairy.
An Ancient Food
Essential Amino Acids
After Gelatine has been isolated from collagen, it's made up of about 98-99% protein by dry weight. This is considered “unusually high in amino acids glycine and Proline” which are “non-essential” (or conditional) because our body makes some of them by itself. The amino acid composition of Gelatin is approximately: 21% Glycine / 12% Proline / 12% Hydroxyproline / 10% Glutamic acid / 9% Alanine / 8% Arginine / 6% Aspartic Acid / 4% Lysine.
Perhaps the most valuable amino acids we get from Gelatin is glycine. Glycine, in addition to other amino acids like proline, is what comprises collagen, critical for giving connective tissue throughout the body its strength and durability. Glycine is also important for our ability to detox from heavy metals, chemicals or genral toxins from our diet and the environment.
Consuming good amounts of Glycine has been tied to better Glutathione production, which is one the of the most powerful liver detoxifiers there is, helping clean our blood and usher harmful substance out of the body. In addition to supplying Glycine, Gelatin contains Proline, which works with Glycine to form Collagen and connective tissues. It assists in the breakdown of other proteins in the body and helps with the formation of new cells. It also helps with proper muscle tissue maintenance, protects the digestive system from permeability and prevents decrease of muscle mass in endurance runners and athletes. Impressive right, so why not see what this Gelatine could do for you.
The Ultimate Ingredient
Consuming both Gelatin and Collagen can help improve your appearance thanks to its positive effects on skin health and cellular rejuvenation. If you didn't know already... Collagen is considered a primary building block for skin and is partially what gives skin a youthful, healthy appearance.
Gelatin is vital in the process of renewing skin cells and can also help protect against UV light damage, therefore protecting against premature skin ageing. Collagen depletion usually starts for humans in our late 20s or early 30s and only continues to accelerate. As we continue to lose Collagen, we can develop cellulite, loose skin and fine lines as a result of skin losing its firmness.
As we age and the more stress we put our bodies through, the more we could use that extra collagen to to buffer the effects of environmental stress we all face. Consuming more Gelatin is helps stimulate new and non-fragmented Collagen, restoring our skin’s durability and helping maintain strong hair, nails and teeth.
Hair, Skin & Nails
Sleep & Cognition
Some studies have shown that taking 3g of Gelatin before bedtime can help individuals who experience reoccouring difficulty falling asleep or poor sleep. Researchers investigated the effects of on subjective sleep quality and found that it improved daytime sleepiness, daytime cognitive functions and sleep quality, plus it shortened the time it took to fall asleep and improved slow-wave sleep without changes in the normal/healthy sleep architecture. The essential amino acid Glycine in Gelatin also seems to improve sleep in a different way than traditional sleep medications or hypnotic drugs, which normally means less drowsiness and side effects the following day are experienced.
Glycine is considered an “inhibitory neurotransmitter,” which means it acts similarly to some anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications, only without the unwanted complications and side effects. People use glycine and other forms of amino acid therapy to naturally boost mental clarity and calmness because certain amino acids help lower “stress hormones” like norepinephrine and increase “happy hormones” like GABA. Around half of the inhibitory synapses in the spinal cord use glycine, and research shows that when glycine is not properly metabolised it can result in an increased risk for developmental problems, lethargy, seizures and mental retardation.
Gelatin and Collagen
Gelatin is derived from Collagen, meaning when Collagen breaks down, it becomes Gelatin. As an example the process can be found in bone broth... bones are loaded with Collagen, and as the bones simmer in broth during the cooking process that takes place over 1-2 days, the Collagen slowly breaks down into Gelatin. Gelatin was actually one of the first foods used as medical treatment in ancient China... our ancestors recognised that food is medicine very early on. Gelatin is great for people with food allergies or sensitivities. It even helps their bodies manage difficult-to-digest foods better long term by helping repair parts of the GI tract.
As a rich source of Gelatin, sources of Collagen can facilitate healing of the mucosal lining, which means improvements in nutrient absorption and less risk for leaky gut (particles leaching out from the gut to where they shouldn’t be). In other words, Gelatin is full of the same good stuff as Collagen, just in a different form. We are going to be extra clear on this to help if you are making a tought choice between the 2... The Collagen Powder is easier to use and mix, both are without flavour so there is no difference in taste. We actually prefer Gelatin but it is more diffcult to mix in say a hot drink and will stick to the bottom of the cup, I personally have spent a while scrapping Gelatin residue off the bottom of the cup and then eaten it. I love Gelatin but the Collagen is easier to use mixes quickly with everything they do slightly differ i think in nutrition and I would perhaps compare them to the Green Tea leaf where depending what stage you pick it gives different benefits.
