    Sorry, there's so much to wade through in this topic. What does Ray peat suggest in terms of gelatin, beef or pork?

    Can you even tell that it grew? Well, I can now put my hair into a tiny ponytail or pigtails. 4 TB of collagen hydrosylate (Great Lakes Gelatin) every day. I'll continue the experiment for my nails at the very least. I have to decide if I want to trim the back to even everything out or just let it grow wild for a bit.

    Just wanted to share a gelatin concoction

    I've never been a fan of jello so in an attempt to eat more gelatin I thought making a banana jello might make it a little smoother and less like the translucent jello I never liked as a kid.

    2 med/large bananas
    1 cup water
    2 tbsp gelatin - bloomed
    tbsp vanilla extract, tsp almond extract

    Heat bananas and water in a pot and mash up the bananas as they cook. Simmer too sweeten. Add in extracts (I find the touch of almond extract to sweeten it just a bit). I'm sure butter or coconut oil to fry the bananas and caramelize them would only improve this. Add in bloomed gelatin and stir. Put in container and cool. This firms up a lot - not just like jello since I'm using so much gelatin - more like gummy bear consistency. I really like them and eat a chunk of this each day + a piece with each low gelatin meat serving (burger, chicken thigh, etc).

    My nails have definitely gotten much stronger since I've been increasing gelatin (only 2-3 weeks at this point) and my ankle pain is greatly diminished. Not sure about causation here but I'm not complaining!

    gelatin success stories? YAH!

    Maybe it's something else, but consuming 3tbs/day of gelatin has stopped my nose from bleeding. It used to just bleed looking at it wrong, now I can get punched in the nose and not worry about it.

    I've been a bit lazy about my collagen intake so far this month, but my hair is still growing at a noticeable rate. It's been so long since I grew it out to this length, I don't know if this is a normal rate or not, but it feels thicker to me.

    Oooo I've always suffered from nosebleeds in the winter. Maybe gelatin will help with that a bit. I used a neti pot for most of last winter and that helped a lot.

    i know lawrence can be a rough town, but is this a thing for you?
    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.

    Has anyone else experienced a MUCH faster recovery from various injuries on gelatin?

    This summer, I was moving around some furniture/etc. and sliced my knee wide open. It healed in less than 3.5 weeks.

    Last Sunday, I was involved in a car crash. The car crashed into where I was sitting at a least 45mph (maybe way more), both cars were totaled, I had a giant bump on my head (at some point I had 4 giant bumps and looked like a Trekie), the other 4 people in my car sitting in other parts of the car all were advised to take pain pills and that we will be sore for a VERY long time. One of my car companions has been bed-ridden with aches this past week and I've felt 100% recovered (i.e. no soreness and the bump magically healed in no time) since 3-4 days post-crash. I stopped taking ibuprofen around the 36th hour post-crash. I had to travel by plane and carry my own 100lbs of luggage (a bunch of photoshoot clothes/jewelry) up and down the stairs around the 48th hour post-crash even though I wasn't supposed to lift anything heavy. :P

    I've been taking around 1T to 1/4 cup for a year now and post-car crash I made sure I got at least 1/4 cup in daily. I was trying to get my car crash companions to take some gelatin but they just think I'm crazy. (Somehow they'll rather self-medicate with ___ and alcohol, oh welllll.)

    I would love to think I'm just superwoman but obviousllllly it's the gelatin right?

    Hi TQP. Since you seem to be the authority on here about everything gelatin, I was wondering if you know if gelatin can help with peri-menopausal symptoms, primarily hot flashes/night sweats. Normally a great sleeper, I've been suffering for a month now and am looking for a natural method to deal with them and hopefully restore my shut-eye.
