Vital Proteins Gelatin: Amino Acids, Collagen, and a TON of Health Benefits

You may not have ever considered gelatin as a supplement that you need in your life, but let me tell you, YOU DO! I have recently been studying up on natural, healthy ways to improve ones health and Gelatin was on the top of my list to start incorporating into my diet asap. The most highly revered companies I found was Vital Proteins. They also offer Collagen Peptides, which offer many of the same benefits as gelatin. Did you know that Gelatin is largely composed of the amino acids -which I had already been consuming but in sports recovery drink- that is full of unhealthy additives, so I have taken that out of my diet! Gelatin also contains both glycine and proline, these days most of dont get enough of either in our diets, because we dont consume organs, bones, or fibrous tissues as much as other cultures do. These three components of gelatin are vital for healthy skin, hair and nail growth, as you may know. But did you know that they also aid in proper immune function and weight maintenance! Keep reading to learn more.

Consuming whole food nutrition containing collagen is essential for your overall health, fitness and wellbeing. Our ancestors (and many other cultures still do) utilized all parts of animals, including bones, tissues, and organ meat, all of which provided an abundant amount of collagen. Gelatin provides natural and healthy protein into our diets. Gelatin also gives you collagen, and collagen is vital for our body, and is the basic building block of skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Check out some recipes here.

The happy cows at Vital Proteins, openly graze on lush, natural grass pastures providing the highest quality of collagen protein which includes one, single ingredient: 100% South American Pasture-raised Bovine Hide. Their collagen is derived from the Nelore breed of cattle, which are non-dairy cows, and since the cattle were pasture-raised and grass-fed, this eliminates the risk of rBGH in their feed. Brazil also has a law which prohibits the addition of hormones to feed. All contribute to a high quality, collagen

Their 100% pasture-raised Collagen Peptides and Collagen Protein Beef Gelatin have similar amino acid profiles and offer very similar nutritional benefits. Both are virtually odorless and tasteless, making them extremely versatile. Both are virtually tasteless so you can add them to almost anything.

Collagen Peptides Collagen peptides are short chain amino acids naturally derived from pasture-raised collagen protein. Unlike gelatin, these peptides are soluble in cold liquids as well as hot. Collagen peptides contain the same amino acids as gelatin which are identical to the protein found in skin, nails, hair, bones, cartilage, and joints. Gluten Free, rBGH Free, Non GMO. Collagen can be used in hot or cold items. Gelatin is best used in hot items as it thickens in colder temperatures. I use them both to thicken my homemade shampoo.

Vital Proteins Features I Love:

These standards are in alignment with the Global Animal Partnership's 5-step Animal Welfare Rating Standards.
