Value of Gelatin as Protein Supplement

Even though gelatin lacks the amino acid Tryptophane, it can still serve as a valuable protein supplement. Studies have shown that up to 50% of muscle protein in a meat product can be replaced with gelatin while keeping the same nutritive value.

We have had numerous testimonies from people who say that the pain from arthritis was lessened or eliminated just from taking a couple of tablespoons of gelatin per day. This is perhaps due to the fact that gelatin collagen is so easily digested while Tryptophane present in the body from other protein sources allows the gelatin to function as a complete protein.
