I bought some Knox gelatin, intending to just try it, after reading a few people say it had helped them with sleep, pain, fatigue, and weight loss.
I've been mostly Paleo AIP for a couple of months now, and using bone broth every day, all because of my years-long Chronic Fatigue. For about a week, I've had a really hard time sleeping, waking a lot in the night, and being in pain.
Yesterday, I ate about 2 T. of the gelatin divided into several servings of broth, kombucha, and coconut porridge. I consume all of these items regularly, only the gelatin is new. I'm now trying to determine whether the strong laxative effect is a result of the gelatin, or some non-related GI bug. Not quite diarrhea, but very close.
Anyone else experienced this? Should I have eased into the gelatin more gently? Is this a problem because of my leaky gut/weak digestion?
Thanks for any answers!
