Cherry-Ginger Gummies

Gelatin is a fibrous protein made of amino acids that makes up approximately one third of all the protein in your body. It preserves our bone, ligament, and muscular health and gives skin elasticity while keeping it firm and tight. It also heals the gut wall, improves digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps food move more easily. Supports skin, hair and nail growth. Supports healthy joints. Gelatin is a a great source of dietary collagen (collagen is too large to be absorbed by the skin)
