First off, what is gelatin?
🧸Gelatin is a colorless, flavorless substance made from the collagen found in animal bones, skin and tissues. Gelatin is the cooked form of collagen. It makes up about half of the protein found in animals.
🧸Gelatin is loaded with three amino acids (glycine, proline and alanine) that have hydrophilic (hydrating), anti-inflammatory, healing properties.
🧸Because gelatin can attract and hold liquids, this allows it to draw in digestive juices, which help us break down the foods we eat.
🧸The more digestive juices present (mostly bile and stomach acid), the better our food is broken down, which allows for improved absorption.
⚠️NOT ALL GELATINS are made the same. The brand I recommend is Great Lakes. @greatlakesgelatin
🤓The product has been a subject of several clinical trials that have proved its effectiveness.
