When it comes to reducing our pain and other things of the sort, we tend to jump right into prescription medicine or over the counter drugs but sometimes the holistic or more natural approach is just as effective. While this remedy might be a little unconventional a lot of people swear by it.
Now before I get into this remedy, I want to give you some information about the main ingredient so that you can better understand why it is supposed to work for joint pain. The main ingredient is gelatin. Gelatin is supposed to be very beneficial to our bone health. Don’t get me wrong, some people do need medications and if medication helps get rid of your pain then go for it. However, if you’re looking for a way to reduce your pain without having to constantly down things like Tylenol, this could be a good alternative for you.
By adding more gelatin to your diet you are able to boost the effectiveness of other bone-building nutrients. Gelatin, for those who do not know, is the cooked form of collagen and makes up about 50 percent of the protein in an animal. Gelatin-rich foods can and do make a huge difference in our bone health within reason. While gelatin is not a complete protein it does contain things like amino acids and glycerine in large amounts.
Below I am going to go over this recipe, but also keep in mind that in regards to reducing pain, you also have to stop stressing your pained areas. Bad posture and other things of the sort should not persist if you want this to help. We have to work together to make healthier life choices if we want to truly make a difference within our bodies.
2 cups of water
1 cup of sugar or sugar substitute
(Add honey if you would like)
1 box of grass fed (organic) gelatin
1 mold or pan
Boil the water and mix the other things into it. Stir this well and then pour it into the pan or mold. Refrigerate the mixture until it turns to a gel, similar to Jello. Then eat it. Yes, just eat the jelly.
You don’t have to eat it all at once. A tablespoon at the same time each day should suffice. And you can gradually increase the amount if need be. This is said to help reduce inflammation and promote bone health. What do you think? There is no doubt that gelatin is good for us but do you think it could be effective in relieving your pain? Perhaps it might be worth a try. If you don’t like gelatin, bone broth might also be a great option.
