Amazing effects of gelatin powder on your health and beauty
What is Gelatin Powder?
“Gelatin or gelatine is a translucent, colorless, flavorless food ingredient, derived from collagen taken from animal body parts. Brittle when dry and gummy when moist, it is also called hydrolyzed collagen, collagen hydrolysate, gelatin hydrolysate, hydrolyzed gelatin, and collagen peptides.”
Unflavored Gelatin contains amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. These amino acids provide various health and beauty benefits. Gelatin is literally made up of collagen. Yes, the same collagen is needed for youthful moisturized skin.
Gelatin Powder Uses for Face and Skin
Gelatin effect on skin are stupendous, whether you consume it or use it as face mask.
There are different ways to consume gelatin. You can add it to your broths and gravies or your smoothies and milkshakes. You can add it to your desserts and ice creams as well. Although it is not recommended if you are trying to lose weight.
My favorite way of consuming gelatin is in my morning tea. You have to bloom your gelatin in cold water first. Adding hot water to gelatin powder will turn into jelly and we don’t want jellied water, do we?
Take a teaspoon full of gelatin in a cup, add a splash of cold water and mix it well with a fork. Now pour your tea, mix, and enjoy. My favorite tea is green tea, you can use chamomile, peppermint, or whichever you like. You can also add some lemon juice drops and honey in it for flavor and added health benefits.
Make this a daily routine for at least 3 months. You will see your desired results, that is, beautiful younger-looking skin, as well as healthy hair growth, stronger and shinier nails. Not to forget strong bones.
