I use gelatin in this recipe for several reasons. Not only is the gelatin a flavorless, colorless, thickener for the creamer but its also a simple way to get the incredible benefits of grass fed gelatin, such as collagen, digestions absorption, joint health and skin and nail health. Gelatin is primary composed of amino acids and proline, which are typically found in bones, organs and fibrous tissue of animals, which unless your a daily bone broth drinker, then our bodies don’t get enough of these essentials amino acids in our diet these days. So.. If you could add a bit of anti-aging, arthritis supporting, beautiful nail growing goodness to your morning routine, then why not? I buy THIS BRAND.
