Jello ?

Recommended Posts

Guest brandi78

Not too long ago I went to get my split ends trimmed and the girl that cuts my hair said that jello makes your hair & nails grow quicker. She said that it is the gelatin in it that makes it happen. Has anyone heard of this before or is this just a myth. I have been mixing jello up and drinking it like kool aid. It tastes decent but will get lumpy if you dont drink it soon after mixing it. I have had some everyday for about 2 weeks & my nails seem a little stronger.

I'm guessing it's a myth.

Brandi,

It is NOT a myth. Gelatin is helpful to your body for producing keratin which is the bade substancr of hair and nails.

My aunt drank jello as an dietary additive for hair and nail treatment, as she had the problem of frizzy hair and brittle nails. She said that if you has a calcium deficiency or trouble metabolizing calcium, it would help. It only works with new growth. PLUS later I found only special forms of calcium can be absorbed by the body - supplemental calcium as vitamins, are not absorbed.

I hope this helps. But of course I am not a dietary expert.

Something else I have always been told-even by a Dr-was to drink lots of milk. I know when I was pregnant and on calcium pills my nails were longer and stronger than they had ever been

From the internet: Jello and Hair are both made of proteins. Jello is an example of denatured collagen, and hair is made of keratin. Jello has no inherent properties that make it any different from proteins that you digest normally, such as those from meats. Provided that you supply your body with the amino acids that are not created by itself, your body already makes 16 of the 20 different amino acids.

Will your hair grow by digesting more Jello? There is a potential if you don't eat any food that had no amino acids in it, making your cells lack the essential amino acids it needs thus preventing proper hair growth. But the chance of this happening is similar to you not eating anything at all. For these reasons, jello will probably do nothing for your hair growth, but make you feel hyper because of the sugar.

It is also helpful to remember that calcium alone is useless as your body needs vitamin D to make use of the calcium. That's why milk is fortified with Vitamin D, to aide in using the calcium it has.

Janice - read the article - that is what it says.

      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize

      One of the great advantages of going to a therapist was having an opportunity to remember and share a lifetime of experiences similar to those you describe.  Somehow being open and honest was a step i needed in finding the strength and confidence to follow my path.   Thank you for reminding me of my past as well as sharing your own.   Hugs,   Charlize

      It all gets a bit complicated at times   Here it it a standing joke about not having to see someone's medical records to know their issues, just sit in the reception at the doctors surgery and listen to the receptionist! Not really funny, but it happens a lot.   For me it is a daily thing as I am not planning a namechange etc in the near future, but only occasionally gets too much. Its always going to be easier wth one name and one gender.   Tracy

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."

      Hi ,  thanks for the warm welcome

      Hi Gwen, thanks for the warm welcome. I do have a balanced life but it’s especially because it helps me to get through the dysphoric days. I try to work a lot and do relaxing things to be confronted less with the dysphoria.   I love Godiva chocolate. Lindt chocolate from Switzerland is not bad either but I prefer my Belgian chocolates. We have a Leonidas on every corner here. Do you have Leonidas chocolate in the USA?
