Get Smooth and Soft Skin With Gelatin

If you are a vegan or a no-vegetarian, then please stay away from this post as it is not recommended for you.

Gelatin is made from animal bones and ligaments. It’s basically the cooked version of collagen. It is a great source of protein, minerals, and 18 amino acids like glycine, alanine, proline, hydroxyproline, etc., making it extremely beneficial for health as well as beauty.

Sufficient intake of Gelatin is beneficial to the skin. It boosts Collagen, which is the main structural protein of connective tissue and improves Elastin, which provides skin with its elasticity.

It is pretty clear that in order to have a supple and soft skin, collagen and Elastin play a vital role and steps.

So, how exactly does Gelatin help you get a youthful skin?

Gelatin aids a relaxing night’s sleep as the Glycine in Gelatin reduced the core body temperature and promotes long periods of peaceful sleep.

Prevents Wrinkles, Stretch Marks & Cellulitis:

Collagen is a key ingredient in most of the anti-aging skin products. But did you know that it doesn’t work when applied on the skin?

The Collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin and only dietary source of Collagen can be absorbed, smoothening your skin from the inside.

Prevents Wrinkles, Stretch Marks & Cellulitis

With age, the skin loses its elasticity and thus appears wrinkles. By consuming Gelatin, you are boosting your body with the much-needed Collagen to maintain and restore skin elasticity, thereby reducing the wrinkles.

For the above reason, it is also found to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks as well as cellulite.

Makes Your Skin Glow:

Gelatin promotes the growth of skin cells. This helps in skin renewal and results in a bright and clear skin.

In 2009, researchers from Shokuhin-To-Kaihatsu observed the effects of a Gelatin supplement on women over 40. The women consumed 5 or 10 g of gelatin for 7 weeks. At the three-week mark, 41% of women taking 5 g of Gelatin reported improvements in their skin. 62% of women taking 10 g of Gelatin every day reported better and improved skin. At 7 weeks, 74% of women taking 5 g of Gelatin saw skin improvement and 81% of women taking 10 g had clearer and firmer skin.

Reduces Acne:

Raging hormones are one of the reasons for acne breakouts. The amino acids in Gelatin help to regulate the hormones. High levels of Estrogen and Testosterone are often connected to increase in acne. Gelatin helps to decrease excess levels of these hormones and thereby reduce acne.

The recommended intake of Gelatin is between 10 and 30 g daily. Gelatin contains amino acids and proteins that do not build up in the body, so you will need to continue eating Gelatin-rich foods and supplements to see continued benefits like clear and soft skin.
