Gelatin is the cooked form of collagen, which is 25% of the protein in our bodies. Traditional diets contained far more gelatin than ours. Gelatin is beneficial for calming inflammation, skin, hair, and dental health, bone strength, joint pain, sleep and mood, digestion, constipation, leaky gut, and more. In this video I’ll describe 9 of the many benefits of gelatin, and why it’s so important to our health.
This is based on my own personal research. I am sharing in hopes the information can be useful to others. It is not medical advice. Please talk to your doctor or another medical profession if you need guidance on your particular case 🙂

If possible, I always suggest buying local if you can, but grass fed gelatin was harder than I expected to source. However, local bones are easy to come by!
If you are interested in the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, more nutrition videos, or my personal experiences healing Crohn’s, I have videos about those topics and more on my channel. I’m really happy to hear your comments and experiences as well!
Resources used for the video are below. I read a lot of other articles and watched videos etc…Even used an old texbook, but I think that the references here were ones I found especially useful, and they can hopefully be useful if you are continuing your research:
