We must admit that apple cider vinegar is not so pleasant to drink, however the health benefits it provides are so great that we cannot simply ignore it. In order to improve the way of consumption of apple cider vinegar we’ve decided to turn it into apple cider gummies.
This is a fun, convenient and easy recipe, which you can make with only 4 ingredients. You don’t need to be a professional cook to master the recipe. One of the main ingredients of the gummies is grass-fed gelatin.
The health benefits of grass-fed gelatin
You must already know about all of the health benefits of ACV. However, have you ever read about the other key ingredients in this recipe, such as gelatin. Gelatin, is a derivative of collage and it represents an important protein which can be found in animals. By eating gelatin, we’re feeding our body with important amino acids which represent an essential part of protein.
When it comes to the healing of our bodies, gelatin is essential because it has the ability to improve gut health, digestion and it can also strengthen our bones.
Gut health and digestion
Gelatin can be really beneficial when it comes to prevention of intestinal damage and to improving the lining of our digestive tract. This, in the long run, can help prevent the leaky gut syndrome and it can also boost our ability to produce gastric acid secretions which are essential for proper digestion and absorption of nutrients. So, when it comes to the overall health of our gut, gelatin plays an important role.
Joints protection and decreasing joint pain
If you are suffering from arthritis, or you know someone who suffers from it, then you must know that gelatin can help reduce the symptoms of osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. All of this happens because gelatin and collagen can help in stopping the chronic inflammatory responses in our bodies, which eventually reduces pain and it stops its progression.
Improving sleep quality
Having a good night sleep is essential for our bodies to function properly and gelatin can be of great assistance in this area. According to one study, participants that consumed 3 grams of gelatin, before going to bed, improved their sleeping ability.
Boosting our cognitive ability and improving our mood
Gelatin contains an ingredient called glycine which as an amino acid can be an “inhibitory neurotransmitter”, which means that it can act in the same way as anti-anxiety or antidepressant medicine. The good thing about this is that gelatin doesn’t cause any side effects.
Improved skin health
Gelatin will make your skin look younger, because it can block any damaging UV light rays and it can renew your skin.
In order to function properly, our bones need a lot of nutrients and gelatin can help us keep our bones healthy. Firstly, gelatin contains magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, sulfur and silicon which are all essential for making our bones strong and for preventing damage. Secondly, gelatin is 85% protein and the amino acids it contains are really important for the production for collagen.
