    Not a full answer but people buy expensive supplements like glucosamine and collagen and some other stuff for joint pains and muscle building when you could eat bone broths or gelatin. (Doesnt necessarily have to be beef)

    When rats are fed diets low in methionine, cysteine, or tryptophan, or diets high in glycine, they tend to live longer. Gelatin is low in methionine, cysteine, and tryptophan, but high in glycine. So if humans are anything like rats a diet with more gelatin and less muscle tissue should promote longevity.

    I take it for mostly this reason... To balance out the aminos. Our ancestors ate more skin, tendons, etc that had collagen (gelatin). Many paleo folks eat muscle meat upon muscle meat... Not really that paleo.

    Also, I take it because it makes my skin, hair, and nails look amazzzzzing. I am hoping this is edible Botox so to speak... Since all of the beauty creams are filled with collagen, and here I am eating it.

    I am hoping that 20 years down the road I will not only thank myself for better skin preservation, but also for better joint health. Gelatin is part of my long term beauty preservation strategy along with plenty of sleep, coconut, sun screen (yes I disagree with the paleo crowd on this pt), and little alcohol/drugs/etc. Gelatin is also part of my LT strategy for better joint/bone health along with lifting heavy, etc. I do a lot of things to be preventive so later I don't have to try to fix things I've damaged in my youth.

    HCLF peaty breakfast granola/cereal:



    Banana "milk": hydrolyzed gelatin, 1.5 cups coconut water, 1 ripe frozen banana, 1T "date paste" (puréed medjool dates... You can omit this or add 1 maple syrup). Optional: 1/2 scoop vanilla whey. (Obviously you can use regular milk... I just wanted banana flavored milk and ran out of coconut milk or regular milk)

    Sliced fresh ripe banana (1/2)
    Sliced fresh ripe mango (1/3)
    Dried banana chips (dehydrator)
    Freeze dried mangoes (unsulfured, taste like mango rice puffs... Tj's brand)
    Freeze dried bananas (taste like banana rice puffs... Tj's brand)
    Roasted coconut chips (with sugar/coconut oil, tj's brand). I only added a tiny sprinkle.

    Mix, enjoy.

    I have been thinking about this all day yesterday.

    The tj's banana is good, but just a bit underripe IMO... I would buy again because the texture is amazing. The tj's mango is just fucking awesome.
    I had a random idea, but i imagine you could make something like mango butter: ground up freeze dried mango + coconut oil or melted cocoa butter, like you would with powdered PB or cocoa powder. Might be good on top of mango custard. Just a thought:P

    I have always liked Jello for desserts myself, but I started incorporate gelatin regularly into my diet a couple of years ago and I now eat it every day due to the good effects that I see from using it; finger and toe nails grows stronger and faster, little or no joint pains after lifting, better hair and less dry skin are among things that I notice. And Jello is also very tasty together with coffee and helps hydrate me before the more substantial meals in the late afternoon.

    So yes, I definitely belong to the gelatin cult now…

    and those expensive collagen-creams are worthless since the collagen cells are too big to be absorbed through the skin. :O

    made another batch with cherry juice today. 1 qt juice + 6 T gelatin in an 8x8 glass dish. twice the amount of gelatin i used the first time. WOW is it firm, lol. i cut it into cubes and can eat it out-of-hand. no spoon required.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
