Welcome to Ask Whole9 Canada, where Summer Innanen and Sarah Ramsden answer all of your health and nutrition questions. In this week’s episode, Renee from Calgary asks, “I have been reading so much about gelatin, and I was wondering if you could weigh in on the benefits of it?”
Gelatin seems to be the new ‘it’ food amongst Paleo experts with good reason. In this episode of S&STV, we talk about the role gelatin plays in maintaining a healthy digestive system, managing homocysteine levels and regulating blood sugar. Most importantly, we discuss its collagen promoting properties, which make it one of the best supplements you can take to improve your skin, hair and nails as well as a natural anti-aging remedy.
You can obtain gelatin from homemade bone broth or by supplementing with a gelatin powder. We recommend the high quality brand Great Lakes Gelatin, which you can order online in Canada from iHerb.com or Amazon.ca (at this time the price on iHerb is more affordable). For more on bone broth, check out the Whole9 Bone Broth FAQ.
