Here’s The Powerful Impact Jell-O Has on Your Joints, Bones and Skin


Most of us have already been familiarized with gelatin as early back as when we were kids, in its colorful, flavor-filled form as Jell-O.

But how many of you knew that the main ingredient in Jell-O could offer you a wide range of benefits health-wise?

In order to reap the benefits, it is recommended to take about 1-2 tablespoons of gelatin powder with your daily diet. There are plenty of things you can do with this powder.

For example, you can mix it with some cold water and let it sit overnight, and consume it along with honey or yogurt the morning after.

If you want to satisfy your sweet tooth AND boost your health, you can whip up a batch of protein cookie dough bars (you can find the recipe from Cook It Up Paleo down in the link section below).

But before you start looking up other delicious recipes containing gelatin, let us inform you of all the benefits it has on your body.

1. Relieves Any Joint Pain

As Dr. Ray Peat, a hormone specialist, will tell you on his website, if you consume gelatin you can expect an almost immediate effect, similar to that of aspirin, on any achy joints you might be suffering from.

2. Soothe Any Osteoporosis Symptoms

The American Academy of Family Physicians in Dallas had done a study and discovered that gelatin could provide some much-needed relief for knee osteoporosis symptoms, which can be quite painful.

3. Helps with Digestion

Gelatin contains helpful amino acids which line your stomach, thus aiding in digestion and reducing any inflammation.

Also, here’s a helpful tip: if you find yourself bothering with regular issues concerning digestion try and chew on some homemade gelatin gummies or sipping on some bone broth after a meal.

4. Heals Any Stomach Ulcers

Innovations Report had published a 2006 article on certain study findings in which they claimed that gelatin could help speed up the healing process of those bothersome stomach ulcers.

5. Strengthens Your Fingernails

Try soaking your nails in a solution made from about half an ounce of gelatin and one cup of water for about 2 minutes. The pleasant transformation is sure to surprise you.

6. Improves the Quality of Your Hair

If you want to condition, strengthen and thicken your hair, gelatin can help with that too. What you need to do is stir one tablespoon of gelatin powder into half a cup of cool water.

Once you’ve thoroughly mixed it, add one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, half a cup of warm water, and one teaspoon honey. Give this a good stir until you get a thick gel.

Then just massage it into your hair and scalp. Let this treatment soak for about 5 minutes or even longer, then simply rinse with hot water.

7. Reduce Any Wrinkles

By consuming gelatin, it infuses your body with collagen and amino acids, both of which are needed to fill out the wrinkles on your face, as well as diminish any stretch marks which may have formed over the years.

8. Improves the Quality of Your Sleep

According to Dr. Ray Peat, after years of getting restless, insufficient sleep, you can help your case with gelatin.

It turns out that consuming gelatin before hitting the sack grants a person nine hours of uninterrupted slumber. This is great news for anyone struggling to get some decent shut-eye (ideally, 8 hours a night).

Take Note!

As healthy and helpful as it is, one should be aware that gelatin is made from the collagenous tendons, joints and connective tissue of animals such as pigs, cows and fish.

That means it is in no way vegetarian, and for those of you looking for vegetarian alternatives, you are of course free to do so, but it is fair of us to inform you that they will not have the same health benefits.

Well, folks, now that you know the facts it’s your choice whether you’ll be opting for this home remedy or not. After all, you’re not risking anything by giving it a shot!
