Gelatin
Eating gelatin every day can help lubricate the joints. My mother takes gelatin dissolved in water but I don't know the quantities.

Oh man that'd rock if it's true. Sugar free jello is great.

My father in law has preached eating jello for your joints for the 10 years that I've known him. Every time he comes to stay with us one of the first things he does is make a bowl of jello to have for the week.

There are two types of gelatin... the type made from vegetables and the kind made from animals... I'm fairly certain the gelatin in JELL-O is not the latter.

There is a product from Naka called Nutri-Flex that I couldn't keep on the shelves when I sold it. Gelatin was a big component.

I'm not sure about that. Years ago when I had a vegan friend, he couldn't eat jello because it was not vegan-friendly.

Jello = Animal Gelatin.

I've never heard of non-animal gelatin, it's derived from collagen:

I might be thinking of gluten.
