As the years pass by you start to feel pain in your back, knees and joints, but various injuries and accidents could lead to that too. So, what to do?
Luckily, the help may’ve been there for you to see for a while but you’ve never realized it before – the ordinary gelatin.
Quite a number of studies have shown that gelatin helps with lowering pain and inflammation connected to osteoarthritis, which is one of the most frequent forms of arthritis. It could also be used for reinforcing bones, fingernails and joints, soothing stress-related injuries as well as osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis treatment.
It could even have some curative effect on ulcers, not excluding those caused by anxiety and stress.
The benefits of gelatin have been confirmed from many physicians, stating that it helps in strengthening bones and joints due to its collagen ingredient, which is the substance that naturally builds up bone and its surrounding tissue.
In 2000, a survey made at a meeting of the American Academy of Family Physicians in Dallas compared the responses from 175 patients with osteoarthritis who have had daily supplements of gelatin, vitamin C and calcium and discovered that these supplements have lowered the patients’ pain levels and increased their mobility by a great margin. As Sean McCarthy of the Center for Clinical and Lifestyle Research in Shrewsbury, Mass said: “Gelatin supplementation has the potential to improve knee function during activities that cause high amounts of stress on the joint”.
According to the findings of a task group of researchers from various facilities in Russia, gelatin could be used in treating stomach ulcers too, due to it containing amino acids of proline and glycine, which serve in protecting the stomach from ulcers. Combining gelatin with turmeric could prove to be even more beneficial because of its high amounts of COX-2 inhibitor called curcumin. This diarylheptanoid has great anti-inflammatory properties which help relieve arthritis pain. Therefore, using gelatin for your back and joint pain or stomach ulcers could relieve you off your pain and get you back on your feet again.
Here’s an old traditional recipe for a remedy with gelatin:
First, buy 150 grams of gelatin (proposed monthly dosage) at any store.
Instructions: put 2 teaspoons of gelatin powder (around 5 grams) and one quarter cup of cold water. Now, stir the gelatin powder into the water during the night and let it stay until morning. The mixture should look like a thick, transparent jelly which you could get for breakfast, combined with yogurt, fresh juice or honey. If you want, adding some anti-inflammatory spices like turmeric or cayenne pepper would be nice too. Keep doing this process daily for one month and see if there’s any difference in the way you feel each day.
