My daughter is on the protocol for healing her gut. I recently have ordered the great lakes brand geletin for healing her gut. When we got it home the canister said collogen. We tried to make some of the delicious recipes asking for geletin and this geletin did not firm up. I was wondering if this product still has the same benefits of healing the gut.

Gelatin contains collagen. While collagen is very beneficial, it's only one component of it. So likely you were sent the wrong item, or ordered the wrong item.
It's certainly a good and useful thing for gut, skin, hair, and nail health.
You might instead invest in a slow cooker (aka crockpot), and make your own bone broth. It's very easy. Get some bones, preferably with joints and cartilage attached, add a couple of tablespoons of a good sea salt, add a few tablespoons of vinegar (white distilled is fine here), fill it up with water to the line, and set it on high for about 20 hours or so.
You can use the bones from a roast chicken for example, just strip off the meat from the bones after you roast them. Be sure to include the big triangular cartilage between the two sides of the breast.
Even better if you can get beef tendons, knuckles, etc. from the butcher. Marrow bones can be used - roast them first, eat the marrow, and reuse the bones in a bone broth. Same thing with ribs.

there are healling benefits to the gut from this collagen which is also good for hair, skin, nails and bones...also highly recommended is L-glutamine, it comes in powder form that you can put in water; it is tasteless and very healing for the lining of the gut and not expensive. Hopefully you are also supplementing with a good quality probiotic.
