Beef Gelatin Protein
(32 oz. Canister - Price Includes Shipping)
Collagen protein is a 100% pure, pasture-raised, grass-fed gelatin powder. Gelatin will thicken in cold liquids. The amino acids contained in gelatin are therapeutic and are identical to the protein found in skin, nails, hair, bones, cartilage, and joints. Gluten Free, rBGH Free, Non GMO.
Studies show that gelatin is beneficial for restoring the strength of the gut lining and fighting food sensitivities. (A report published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology found that gelatin effectively supports intestinal health and integrity.)
Collagen/Gelatin and the amino acids proline, glutamine and arginine help seal openings in the gut lining and support gut integrity.
Some of the ways in which Collagen/Gelatin boosts detoxification is by supplying sulfur and glutathione. Glutathione helps with elimination of fat soluble compounds, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead.
Collagen/Gelatin contains minerals including potassium, calcium, selenium and magnesium.

**THIS GREEN PROTEIN IS DIFFERENT FROM THE
VITAL PROTEINS COLLAGEN WITH THE BLUE LID**
Think gelatin. Remember, it has the same nutritional benefits of collagen peptides because it is the same amino acids. However, collagen protein can be used to make homemade jello or gummies because it gels.
For a hot drink, mix 1-2 scoops collagen protein into 4 oz. cold liquid, let sit for one minute then add 4 oz. of hot liquid to dissolve. fruit juice, broth, or herbal tea are great suggestions.For adding to food, gelatin can be utilized in a variety of your favorite foods such as fruit gelatin, custards, soups, and stews.

1. Collagen supports skin health
Vital Proteins has collected significant research showing that ingestion of collagen supports skin health and rejuvenation. According to Vital Protein’s discussion on collagen and skin health,
When collagen is digested, the peptides are attracted to cells that synthesize collagen in the human body, fibroblasts, and are the most common cells of connective tissues in the skin. Collagen peptides may bring about the production and reorganization of new collagen fibers by stimulating the fibroblasts cells. Furthermore, some studies show that collagen peptides increase the density and diameter of collagen fibrils in the dermis and may improve the strength of skin.
Clinical studies show that daily consumption of collagen significantly improves skin elasticity and moisture. You can emphasize collagen intake during the winter, when you feel like your skin needs extra support from the dry air.
2. Collagen supports balanced hormones
The interesting research on gelatin proteins and hormones comes from controversial health researcher Dr. Ray Peat.
Dr. Peat writes,
Gelatin is a protein which contains no tryptophan, and only small amounts of cysteine, methionine, and histidine. 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.[…]
When only the muscle meats are eaten, the amino acid balance entering our blood stream is the same as that produced by extreme stress, when cortisol excess causes our muscles to be broken down to provide energy and material for repair. The formation of serotonin is increased by the excess tryptophan in muscle, and serotonin stimulates the formation of more cortisol, while the tryptophan itself, along with the excess muscle-derived cysteine, suppresses the thyroid function.[…]If a person eats a large serving of meat, it’s probably helpful to have 5 or 10 grams of gelatin at approximately the same time, so that the amino acids enter the blood stream in balance.
By helping to balance the tryptophan, collagen can supports healthy thyroid function and reduces the metabolic stress of increased cortisol. Thyroid and metabolism go hand-in-hand, so gelatin may actually increase metabolism by improving thyroid function.
3. Collagen supports bone and joint health
Collagen makes up to 90% of bone mass, and several studies indicate that taking collagen internally can improve bone metabolism. When it comes to building bone density, conventional medicine often looks solely at calcium. This is a tremendous mistake, because cofactors in bone metabolism such as vitamin K2, vitamin D and magnesium are as important – if not more so – than calcium intake for bone health.
Collagen supplementation is likely another key factor in improving bone health along with other vitamin and mineral cofactors. The research Vital Proteins has collected on collagen and bone shows that the presence of collagen peptides stimulate osteoblasts, the cells responsible for bone formation.
