  • Does anyone use Greatlakes Gelatin?

    It's pricey but it seems to be the high end of gelatin supplements - from pasture rared cows. Anyone try it?

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I have it. Works well! But I've only used it to once to be fair. It's popular in RP circles, so I bought some. I plan to make gummies with it. hehe

      Yup. I make "jello" with fruit juice or add it to smoothies.

        Lol - really?! I found it independently of Peat! Although now that I think of it - looking for grass fed bovine gelatine was spurned by reading his article on pigs being fed corn, and what that does to their fat. My pork gelatine is now being used in the bath

        Planning to add this to my yogurt in the mornings - figure it will be an easy way to get it in

          Yeah, I never heard of the brand until I saw it mentioned on another forum. LMK how it tastes in yogurt.

            I have two containers of it in my pantry. Only used it a couple of times. I actually forgot about it. Hope it's still good.
            Dragonfly, how do you make your "jello."

              I add it to stews, soups etc if there is no freshly made meat bone stock. Also going to try adding a little to gluten / grain free flour to see if it helps make a decent "pastry".

                  Yep, use the hydrolyzed (green) in just about anything and the gelatin (pink) to make jello and gummies. Also its actuay really cheap for how much you get. I ordered a case of 8 last year and only on my 3rd.

                    Dissolve 2 T of gelatin in a little cold water to make a paste. Mix in 2 c hot water (boiled) and 2 c cold liquid ( water & juice to taste). Let cool & refrigerate. If you don't do juice, you can add a little honey instead.

                      It's prob cheaper for you guys across the water - I'm getting it shipped to the UK!

                      Zach, have you noticed any improvement in your skin since starting to supplement with it?

                        I can't believe I just spent £31.50 on gelatine.

                          Not in skin, no. I use it instead of getting protein from meat sources and have noticed greatly improved digestion, inflammation, flexibility and joint movemet. I also find that i can get almost all my protein from plants and gelatin and still gain muscle so i think that recommend protein intake is greatly exaggerated.

                          As for you post above, yikes that is expensive!

                            I'm confused by what I've recently read about 'excitotoxins', and whether forms of gelatin contain excitotoxins / are excitotoxic, or whether it's merely the case that MSG is often labelled as gelatin in ingredient lists for the sake of concealment.

                              Pure gelatin is a great supplement and I have noticed several health benefits from using it, especially increased recuperation and less joint pains from lifting...
