6 Week Gelatin Challenge & Over $150 in Prizes!

Happy New Year!!!

I wanted to bring in the new year with a health challenge for myself and all my readers. I thought it would be fun to host a challenge that everyone could benefit from. Last week I was reading about Gelatin and all the health benefits of consuming it and I thought it would be a great to host a challenge to encourage you (and myself) to consume more GELATIN!

What Is Gelatin and Why Is It So Good For You?10 Benefits of Bone Broth

Gelatin is the cooked form of collagen made from the bones, skin, connective tissue and joints of animals. Gelatin is extremely nourishing to the body. It helps to repair the gut, promotes healing and growth in the body, is ani-inflammatory and is pro thyroid. Gelatin is also known to promote weight loss and reduce sagging skin and cellulite!

From Gelatin, Stress, Longevity by Ray Peat, Ph.D.

“People have asked me why I recommend gelatin since I recommend eating only whole foods.  That is right, but we rarely eat whole foods, including whole animal foods.  We throw away the  bones and skin and are told not to eat the skin because it has fat in it.  However this is precisely here where the gelatin is found.  Gelatin contains thyroid-protective amino acids which can help balance  the anti-thyroid (thyroid-suppressing) amino acids prevalent in muscle meats (beef, lamb, poultry and fish), mainly cysteine and tryptophan.  In addition, the anti-thyroid amino acids are released in large quantities during stress and hypothyroidism itself increases the catabolism (tearing down) of protein even though general metabolism is slowed down.
Both tryptophan and cysteine inhibit thyroid function and mitochondrial energy production, and have other effects that decrease the ability to withstand stress. Tryptophan is the precursor to serotonin, which causes inflammation, immunodepression, and generally the same changes seen in aging. Histidine is another amino acid precursor to a mediator of inflammation, histamine.
Gelatin contains no tryptophan, and only small amounts of cysteine, methionine, and histidine.  The main amino acids in gelatin are glycine and proline; alanine is also present in significant quantity.  35% of the amino acids are glycine, 11% alanine and 21% proline and hydroxyproline.  These amino acids have cyto (cell) protective actions.  Increasing consumption of gelatin and gelatin-rich foods will support normal function and structure in people who have a tendency towards the degenerative and inflammatory diseases of aging.” – Ray Peat PhD

    This has peeked my curiosity…  Didn’t know it was something we needed daily….So the prize that has me the most interested is the gelatin :)  If you add it to juices or smoothies, does it have much of a taste?  It’ll be a great new learning experience… Thanks!

    • Tiffany @ The Coconut Mama January 1, 2013, 9:25 pm

      It depends on what you mix it into. I mix it into my raw milk and I really don’t taste it but I can taste it in juice.

    I would either want the cooker or the pyrex since I just bought Great Lakes gelatin. I have been wanting a set of pyrex with lids for a long time but I could also use a new slow cooker as mine is very old and I am unsure if it leaches any chemicals into the food so I don’t use it very often. I like the stoneware insert and glass lid – no non-stick coatings or plastic! Thank you for this offer!

    I started a small collection of the Pyrex glassware but I would like more. This has helped me to use these containers for leftovers instead of the cheap plastic ones that my family ends up heating up in the microwave no matter how often I tell them to not do that!

    I also made my own beef broth from marrow bones and knuckle bones last month for the first time, It gelled up to the consistency of jello, and I also cooked my first whole chicken (yes, first times for me were many this past year!) and did the broth with the carcass. I much prefer the chicken broth over the beef broth, but think there is more gelatin in the beef broth because of how gelled up it is.

    I could really use a new crock pot.  Mine is old and basic, and the lid broke a while back so I have to use a plate for the lid and lift it with a fork and hot pad to check the food :)  However I love my Pyrex and other lidded glass containers and could use more since they have a way of disappearing, like the plastic Tupperware but much more distressing to lose.  And I love Great Lakes gelatin.  More would just be incentive to use it more often!

    My husband and I had a Hamilton Programmable slow cooker – we loaned it to his daughter 3 years ago and she liked it so much she kept it! LOL! With 2 kids and both parents working, it’s nice for her to be able to set up the slow cooker in the morning and know that dinner will be ready when they all get home. Now that we’ve started GAPS I’d like to be able to do the same instead of spending so much time in the kitchen.

Hopefully there are some jello recipes out there without sugar since I am fighting Candida. Pyrex looks great too…never can have enough of those either.

I was just thinking a couple days ago about trying to find a source for chicken feet to up the gelatin in my bone broths, even though that does kinda weird me out!

    Any of the three prizes would be really fun to win!  We have been making bone broth in a small crockpot I found on CraigsList a while back.  My son is on the full GAPS diet to heal his body and he is showing great progress!  It is hard to keep up on the broth making with a family of 6, so the bigger crockpot would be really nice.
    I can vouch for the gelatin as being really great.  We have just started using this product and love to make hot drinks with it and pudding too!
    The glass storage containers sound really nice.  Our family has been trying to eliminate the use of our old plastic storage containers, so as they have been breaking, I haven’t been replacing them!  Our kids have been trying to learn new ways to put stuff away in the fridge and freezer, especially when a mason jar just doesn’t fit the bill!
    Thanks for doing the giveaways – I think it sounds like fun!

    I’ve made bone broth for years … Soups & stews are such a good way to stretch the budget besides being healthy. Lately I’ve been experimenting with jello & molded salads using Great Lakes Kosher beef gelatin as I do not eat any pork products. My molded cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving was a huge hit – my grandchildren loved it. Have not made marshmallows – must give those a try soon.

    I’m extremely interested in Great Lakes Unflavored Gelatin, Regular, 16-Ounce Can, since finding out i have like 30 food allergies, it has become very hard to get all of my nutrtion in, because just thinking about making a meal and substituting gets tiring and frustrating.

Can’t wait to see how you incorporate more gelatin in your diet! I knew about bone broths but never thought about homemade marshmallows. This will be very interesting!

    I would love to win the gelatin, but any prize looks great.  I usually add gelatin to my hot tea with a little lemon in the mornings, but am always looking for new ways to consume it.

    I’ve been wanting a slow cooker for a while (perfect for ongoing bone broth), a supply of gelatin would be great, and can’t use more glass containers?  It’s all I use and there always seems to be a shortage… Thank you for the opportunity! :)

    I make broth using bones and a bit of Braggs Vinegar, but I’m not sure if I’m getting any “gelatin” in it. I do let it simmer, either on the stove or in my old crockpot for a day or so. I’m going to have to read your instructions on how to do it. Maybe I’m doing something wrong or maybe it’s there and I just don’t know it.

    I want to try my hand at bone broth for the benefit of the gelatin and the other benefits.  I make a stock during the holidays from a hen to make cornbread dressing, but don’t cook it long enough to be bone broth.  A programable crockpot would sure come in handy.

    I make Bone Broth every week and would love to win the programmable Crockpot to replace my nearly 25 year old basic crockpot.  Bone Broth has helped me to cope with losing weight and decreasing inflammation in my joints along with giving my 45 year old skin more suppleness and glow. So every morning I treat myself to a cup of bone broth along with using it in many of the Paleo dishes I make daily for my family.  Thanks so much for the challenge

    I have been making bone broth for a few months now, and recently started making jello cubes at home using organic apple juice and the Great Lakes gelatin.  I use leftover chicken bones and add in some chicken feet, which I get from a local farm (all pastured).  I have not yet tried beef broth, but have been meaning to…not sure which combination of beef bones to buy from the farm, it seems more daunting than just using chicken bones :)  I would love to win the 3 pack of gelatin powder to stock up my pantry!  Hoping to see some improvement in my husband’s joint pain after he gets onto a regular routine of consuming gelatin and bone broth!  :)

    How can I choose? We’re on GAPS, so I’m always trying to figure out how to get more gelatin in our diet. I’m trying to get rid of all my plastics, so I’d definitely love the Pyrex set. I have a collection of slow cookers I’ve gotten from thrift stores over the last year because of our GAPS needs, but it would be nice to have a programmable one. So if I had to choose the one I’d like least, it would be the slow cooker.

    How much gelatin is recommended per day? For example by the tsp. I eat a lot of bone broth (when I have the time and space to for it), and homemade mousse with gelatin but was wondering if I can overdo it. Next is homemade jello!

    Reply
    • Tiffany @ The Coconut Mama February 18, 2013, 1:32 pm

      It depends on how much protein you need a day. I use gelatin to sup my protein. So if I need to eat 100g of protein a day, and I only eat 80g from food, I will consume 20 g of gelatin (3-4 TBS).
