Did you know that Jelly is a rich source of amino acids?
Jelly is largely composed of the amino acids (glycine and proline ) which are found in bones, fibrous tissues and internal organs of animals. Suffice to say, many of us don't consume any or enough of these parts to get our adequate intake of amino acids!
So why do we need amino acids in our diet? Amino acids help skin cells rejuvenate and are particularly helpful for skin conditions such as acne, eczema and wrinkles!
Jelly also contains compounds such as folic acid, aspartic acid and niacin which all have great health benefits for the skin and body!
So here are some of the reasons why you should be consuming more Jelly:
The amino acids contained in jelly help with the rejuvenation of injured skin tissue. Yes, this means skin tissue that has been damaged by excessive sun exposure, acne inflammation, and wrinkles. It helps with the formation of new skin cells thereby slowing down the signs of aging. The aspartic acid and amino acids help with collagen production and seeing as the skin cannot absorb collagen topically, it is best either injected under the skin or consumed!
The Vitamin B and carbohydrates in Jelly help to boost the immune system. It also helps relieve stress and has been touted as a great post-workout snack. The glycine aid in improved sleep quality and thereby helps with mild signs of depression.
Healthy Hair And Nails
Jelly is a rich source of folic acid, which is essential for healthy hair and nails. It has been thought to slow down hair loss while giving hair that extra little bit of shine!
Have you ever wondered why jelly is always served pre or post operation and is such a staple on the hospital menu? It's because the molecules in jelly naturally bind with water in the body and therefore help food move easily through our digestive tract. This means that it will help with constipation and regular bowel movements – which we all know are vital in staying healthy!
