Gelatin is one of the most important supplements you can easily add to your diet. This Pineapple Ginger Jello is a fun way to get lots of gelatin.

Collagen is Good for Joints and Skin

Collagen tissue makes up 50% of the protein in the body, as it is the primary protein in connective tissue — the tissue that makes up fibrous tissues like tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage and skin. Collagen makes up the matrix of joint cartilage and skin as well as cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut lining, and intervertebral discs.

Biochemically, there are several different types of collagen which appear in different types of tissue from bone, tendon and ligament to mucous membranes throughout the body including the intestinal tract and the cornea of the eye.

Gelatin is Easy to Use

Gelatin is simply the cooked form of collagen. Back in the 1800’s in Europe, the many wars necessitated a cheap and efficient way to feed the troops. A chemist by the name of Jean-Pierre Joseph d’Arcet discovered how to extract gelatin from bones. Numerous other researchers ran with this idea and came up with various ways to extract and stabilize gelatin and place it into commercial foods.

Gelatin powders and tablets became a substitute for meat in soups and gravies and became a popular food.  However, the manufacturing of gelatin was not regulated and poor quality products appeared on the market.

The commercial jello product that are on the market today, as you probably know, are loaded with artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners and/or sugar. I do not recommend any of these products.

However, it is so easy to make your own jello from a superior grassfed gelatin product (like this one) and your own organic juices and sweeteners. Your kids will love it and so will you!

Eat some each day instead of expensive supplements.
