Apparently, Gelatin Can Cure A Hangover
Have a hangover? Want to prevent a cold? Have a bowl of gelatin to help boost your immune system.
Remember this bright, colorful, jiggly stuff you probably used to eat all the time as a kid? Well, now we know it can help you solve an adult problem.
"You did it, buddy," a character in "The Hangover Part II" said.
"Cheers!" they all said.
Yeah, gelatin cures hangovers, apparently. And helps prevent colds. What?
"Gelatin boosts your immune system because it's packed with amino acids, calcium and magnesium," a Fox News anchor said.
Here's where it kinda gets gross. Gelatin is generally made from boiling bones or animal hides. That, in turn, breaks down collagen — which is a protein. Then, that collagen cools and re-forms into — ta-da! — gelatin.
Daily Mail pointed to a nutritionist who said, "This confirms what all our grandmothers knew instinctively."
People have been on this gelatin-is-good-for-you train for years.
And to quell that age-old rumor, it's not made from boiling hooves. Although, bones may not really be much better. But there you have it.
