Edible beef gelatine (250 Bloom) is a powdered supplement made mostly from bovine hides (the natural, unbleached skin and hair of cows). It’s specifically sourced from bovine collagen which is a structural protein that’s also found in the human body and essential for overall health in many ways — considering it helps form our joints, ligaments, skin, bones, lining of the gastrointestinal tracts and more.
- Gut Health – Gelatine is one of the best foods for gut health. It helps to fill holes and damaged areas of the stomach lining and reduces inflammation. Gelatine also increases the amount of gastric acid in the gut, which is needed to breakdown and digest protein.
- Bone Health – Did you know that our bones are made up of collagen? We hear often that calcium is needed for healthy bones but calcium is needed with collagen to make our bones healthy and strong. Gelatine in bone broth or grass fed powdered gelatine is the best way to get collagen.
- Joint Health – It’s common knowledge that collagen is needed for healthy joints (the connective tissues in our joins are made up of collagen). Athletes who took a collagen supplement experienced less pain in their joints and saw an increase in performance!
- Skin & Hair Health – Collagen gives your skin its elasticity and helps to keep your skin wrinkle free. Gelatine is also anti-estrogenic and may help balance hormones and break down fat that causes cellulite. Gelatine also improves the strength and shine of your hair.
