Joints are the connective tissue between bones. Joint pain reduces mobility, which can begin as something mildly irritating only to progress into a debilitating condition.
Common sufferers of joint pain include older, overweight or injury-laden people. In fact, Web MD explains that many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries.
How To Treat Joint Pain
Studies have frequently shown that the regular consumption of organic gelatin is an effective way to treat arthritic and joint pain.
Gelatin is a protein obtained by boiling down animal products and contains collagen, which in turn helps form cartilage and bone.
Collagen is a fibrous protein that strengthens the body’s connective tissues, allowing them to be elastic so they can stretch without breaking. As you get older, your body makes less collagen, and individual collagen fibers become increasingly cross-linked with each other. via HowStuffWorks
In fact, because of its collagen content, gelatin has been proven to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis, as well as aid in the recovery of stress-related injuries.
Chris D’Adamo, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore and an integrative medical specialist, suggests that “gelatin reduces arthritis pain, probably because it’s just ground-up cartilage.” via ArthritisHelpTips
In a 2000 study, 175 patients suffering from osteoarthritis were given daily supplements of gelatin, calcium and vitamin C. Researchers found that gelatin supplementation lead to significant improvements on the patients’ joint stiffness, pain levels and mobility (1).
