3 Tips for Using Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin

When you hear the word gelatin you may immediately think of the classic kid’s snack, and no one would blame you for that! However, Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin is very different from the version you found in your lunch box growing up. Our Beef Gelatin, a pasture-raised, grass-fed bovine hide gelatin powder, helps to support hair, skin, nails and joints.** Here are three ways to work Beef Gelatin into your daily routine.

Boost Your Morning & Nighttime Routines

If you want to start your day with coffee that would make your local barista jealous, add a scoop of Beef Gelatin to your favorite morning brew. Whether you take your coffee with ghee, dairy-free milk or by itself, mixing in Beef Gelatin with a blender or frother makes for a wonderful foamy treat that will have you skipping the line at the neighborhood coffee shop.

Likewise, after a long day when you’re looking to wind down, stir Beef Gelatin into a cup of tea or hot lemon water before bed. For the best possible results, make sure you bloom the Beef Gelatin first. This simply means stirring the Beef Gelatin in a cold or room temperature liquid to plump up the granules and make them easier to dissolve.
