Why Gelatin is fantastic as a food
Gelatin is the cooked or broken down form of Collagen. Collagen is the protein essential for supporting the integrity of the skin. It tightens the skin and is anti-aging. It is high in keratin and is fantastic for maintaining skin elasticity, ligaments and connective tissue support.
Gelatin is an excellent source of protein for physically active people who exercise regularly at the gym or with personal trainers. It increases muscle mass and muscle performance. You can substitute Gelatin for whey protein powders as it has no fillers, sugars and chemicals and it is much better for you.
Protein from Gelatin and Collagen
- Necessary for tissue building and repair
- Contributes to the growth and the maintenance of muscle mass
- Contributes to maintenance of normal bone
- 100% pure and natural
The proteins found in Gelatin and Collagen contain a unique composition of 18 Amino Acids. Nine of these amino acids are essential to us as humans.
- Essential amino acids mean the body cannot make them itself. These need to be supplied via a balanced diet and consumption.
- The body can produce non-essential amino acids.. Gelatin and Collagen contain both essential and non-essential amino acids.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They band together in chains to form the stuff from which life is born. This is a two-step process: first, they get together and form peptides or polypeptides, and it is from these groupings that proteins are made.
Amino acids -why do we need them
Amino acids make up 75% of the human body. They are essential to nearly every bodily function, and every chemical reaction that takes place in the body depends on them and the proteins that they build.
The essential amino acids must be ingested every day. Failure to get enough of even one of them can result in protein degradation because the human body does not store them for later use, as it does with fats and starches Amino acids. Why do we need them?? And what the heck are they?? And if I need them so bad – where can I get some?? It sounds like some weird fad that healthy people harp on about, but they are essential to your ongoing wellbeing.
An amino acid is an organic compound. These organic compounds are the basic building blocks of proteins. Proteins are essential for us to survive and our body to grow and be strong. They are super important for the growth and repair of the human body. Protein is the major structural component of all cells in the body. Without protein, the cells and body will start to break down and die off. When enough die, you will have some serious health issues. High doses of proteins are available from Gelatin, which can be taken as a daily supplement.
In short, we need these amino acids to provide protein to the cells in our body, so we can be healthy and survive.
There are 3 classes of amino acids
Essential amino acids
The body can not make essential amino acids; therefore, we need to get them from our food. The nine essential amino acids are: histidine • isoleucine • leucine • lysine • methionine • phenylalanine • threonine • tryptophan • valine
Non-essential amino acids
The body can produce non-essential amino acids, and it is not essential to obtain these amino acids from the diet. They include: alanine • asparagine • aspartic acid • glutamic acid
Conditional amino acids
Conditional amino acids are usually not essential, except in times of illness and stress. They include: • arginine • cysteine • glutamine • glycine • ornithine • proline • serine • tyrosine Gelatin is a protein that contains 18 out of the 20 amino acids that are found in the human body.
How to get Gelatin from food
Gelatin use has been lost over the years due to increased processing and packaging of food. Food production is now chemical, technical, advanced, quick, fast, NOW! Because of this, food is now chemically created to be better and last longer than the foods of the past, but it does not contain all the goodness of the past.
“Along with Gelatin, many nutritious factors have been lost due to processing and packaging foods.”
Today you can buy soup packets, soup in a can, cup of soup (just add water) and other varieties of soup. When Grandma used to make soup, she cooked a chicken, bones and all, after eating the meat for dinner. She then boiled the carcass with some veggies to make ”real” chicken soup. The bone carcass is where the Gelatin goodness came from. Now days processing plants strip the chicken, sell the meat and discard the carcass for pet foods. Essentially pets now eat better than us, getting all the goodness from the bones.
Gelatin and Collagen is important for
- Skin elasticity - Protein is necessary for tissue building and repair
- Connective tissue production - Protein is necessary for tissue building and repair
- Bone and joint health - Protein contributes to the maintenance of normal bones
- Promotion and stimulation of cell growth in joint cartilage - Protein is necessary for tissue building and repair
- Restoring mobility of the joints by decreasing inflammation and joint pain (like the pain experienced from arthritis).
- Digestion - Good source of protein
- Detoxification due to the amino acid Glycine
- Collagen is the main component of the connective tissue of the mammalian body and is therefore essential for strength and elasticity of various body parts and bones, cartilage, skin, ligaments or tendons.
Collagen, Gelatin and their hydrolysates are a natural protein, more precisely spoken a highly purified Collagen which possesses a very poor allergic potential.
