Jello not the kind your mamma makes…

So, last week while with a client they inquired about jello.

You know the kind your mother, auntie neighbor or best friends mom made in those Tupperware molds, some with fruit cocktail, some with marshmallows, oh the bright green, or red with some unknown white stuff at the bottom.

The kind😵 you didn’t want to eat on the holidays or at Auntie Gretchens house. You know the auntie who has 4 cats, 3 birds and a pet lizard, the one that smokes while she cooks as an ash falls in the pot she says “oh that just adds to the flavor”…anyway I am off the beaten path, excuse me for digressing. Back to the story….

My client ask me: “Do you think if I ate jello it would help my mental illness?”

Well it is a valid question.

So I explained that while the commercial jello might not provide you with all the things that are beneficial it might…. as I was not sure of the commercial brand being benificial for the brain, I am pretty sure that gelatin has a benefit to the brain.

How someone might ask…

Gelatin is very rich in glycine, which has been linked to brain function.there are studies that found taking glycine improved memory.

It has also been linked to improvement in some mental health disorders, such as schizophrenia. It is not clear what causes schizophrenia, but researchers believe amino acid imbalances may play a role.

In a study with people affected by schizophrenia glycine is one of the amino acids that has been studied, and glycine supplements have been shown to reduce some symptoms. Research has also found it reduces the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

So to answer the question does jello help with mental health issues, I can’t say for sure….but according to research Gelatin does….

Eat your Gelatin for healthy skin, nails, hair and bones….now also for your mental health…😊

Remember if you or someone you know are dealing with mental health issues please get help and know you are not alone.”
