  •  Gelatin contains keratin, a protein, that improves the condition of hair, nails and skin.
  •  Including Gelatin in your daily diet you can assist the lining of your stomach and digestive tract to repair.
  •  Great source of dietary collagen.
  •  No fat or cholesterol.

Gelatin is a pure collagen. Collagen is essential for the integrity of the skin. Collagen is the substance that is derived from processing animal bones and connective tissue.

Using gelatin as a major dietary protein is an easy way to restrict the amino acids that are associated with many of the problems of aging.

Today, gelatin is missing from the modern Australian diet. Adding Gelatin can balance the amino acid ratio and can lower cortisol which will reduce inflammation. Gelatin is fantastic for the gastrointestinal system. It assists the body to digest, decreasing the susceptibility to allergies. Gelatin naturally binds to water and helps food to move through the digestive tract more easily. The keratin in Gelatin assists the structural integrity of the gastrointestinal lining. Ideal for those suffering from multiple food allergies known as leaky gut.

TOP HEALTH BENEFITS OF GELATIN

 

Aids digestion Gelatin is fantastic for the gastrointestinal system. Gelatin assists digestion by naturally binding to water to help food move through the digestive tract more easily. It improves digestion and gut strength, and the integrity of the mucosal lining by enhancing gastric acid secretion. Taking food grade gelatin can assist in reducing food sensitivities by reducing inflammation in the gastrointestinal system.

Strengthens skin, hair & nails  Gelatin is well known in the production of healthy skin, hair and nails. Gelatin is derived from collagen, and is 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.

Increases muscles mass Gelatin is high in protein. Food grade gelatin has 88grams per 100grams (food grade) and hydrolysed collagen has 96grams per 100grams, which makes it perfect for stimulating and increasing muscle growth. Ideal for those who have lost muscle mass due to illness or hospitalization. Gelatin has been useful for those who work out to increase muscle mass and tone. Alanine has been shown to help protect cells from being damaged during intense aerobic activity, when the body cannibalizes muscle protein to help produce energy.

Muscle, Bone, Joint fortification Gelatin is also abundant in proline. The proline in gelatin helps keeps muscles and joints flexible. It is also used in the development and maintenance of healthy skin, muscle and connective tissues, especially at the site of traumatic tissue injury. The glycine in gelatin boosts our levels of creatine, which helps build muscle mass. Glycine also helps to repair damaged tissues, without it our wounds would never heal.

Decreases inflammation – Assists with mobility The amino acids in gelatin (Glycine, Proline, Alanine, Hydroxyproline) have huge anti-inflammatory properties. This assists with increased mobility, flexibility and tissue repair.

Aids natural detoxification Gelatin is rich in Glycine which is one of the main amino acids needed for liver detoxification. The Alanine found in gelatin is known to assist in eliminating excess toxins from the liver.

Increases energy production The glycine and alanine found in gelatin helps to convert the simple sugar glucose to energy.

GELATIN AND YOUR GENERAL HEALTH

Even healthy people need gelatin. What used to be part of the daily diet up until the late 1970’s is now missing, and is not replaced by any other type of supplement. Quite simply, we all need more gelatin and less of some other foods if we want to have the best chance of being and continuing to be healthy and active in our lives.

Gelatin should be taken daily to help with healthy body functions.

 

DOSAGE:

  • 15 grams – up to 3 times per day in water or liquid of your choice.
  • Food grade Gelatin is easily added to soups, stews, gravy, cooked oats.
  • Be creative! Hot water soluble only – will mix in cold liquids but will not dissolve.
  • Keep some Food Grade Gelatin in your cupboard and add it to your cooking to provide a wide range of health benefits!

Q – Grass fed / grain fed / organic

Australian Beef:

The question of grass fed / grain fed Gelatin and its source is something we are regularly asked. The answer in all its complexities is actually reasonably simple.

The food grade Gelatin – the Gelatin used to assist digestive health, best for cooking with – is derived from Australian cattle. Whilst cattle are predominantly grass fed and raised for supply of meat to Australians and to export to the world, no guarantee can be made that cattle are “100% grass fed”. High standards are applied and Australia has a reputation for compliance to strict regulations and providing the highest quality product. All stock is vet checked and certified, suitable and fit for human

consumption.

It is important to know that the collagen structure is not dependent on what the feed is.
IE – collagen is not affected by the type of feed (grass or grain); the collagen structure is determined by the animal DNA.

This is different to the meat that is used from the cow, where the type of feed is important as the protein and fatty acid structure is affected by the type of diet – IE grains vs grass.

We hope this clears up any confusion and welcome any questions – simply contact us.

 

Organic:

While we would love to say that our Gelatin is certified organic we really cannot, as this is an almost impossible task. We would need to know exactly where each individual cow was sourced and that each farm had been certified organic. Additionally, a purpose built processing plant would need to be built to verify that the products are certified organic, and guarantee no cross contamination.

Hypothetically, if you could produce an organic Gelatin, the cost of the product would be immense and the retail market would not be willing to pay the cost. It would just be too expensive.

However, we do have quality products that have been through checks and met high standards to ensure that we are able to supply the very best product possible.

Q – What is the difference between the two collagen products
MUSCLE REPAIR – Grow & repair muscle mass is for muscle repair and muscle growth.
JOINT CARE – Strengthen joint cartilage & tissue is for the reduction of muscle and joint inflammation and pain. While the ingredients remain the same for all products – Beef (Bovine) the difference is in the processing. Different enzymes are used in processing which utilize different aspects of the collagen, therefore giving us two different products. One for muscle and joint repair and one for muscle building.

Q – Are there any preservatives / sulphates

To make Gelatin fit for human consumption, it is required by law to be cleaned. Early in the production process before it is Gelatin the raw materials are treated with a sulphuric acid and a lime wash.

The residual sulphites (the breakdown of sulphuric acid) are a result of chemical reactions occurring

during the alkaline/acid washing and extraction by water and heat. This is typical of all Gelatin manufacturers worldwide.

There are no added preservatives to our products, however, it is possible there may be residual sulphites present due to the wash process.
