Except for increasing your calorie content for the day nothing.
For edible gelatins [1] to congeal rapidly they must be heated above body temperature to actually melt them.

If you just eat the dry powder it will start being digested and broken down by the acids in your stomach before any congealing can occur.

Try an experiment. Take a package of gelatin. Separate into two equal amounts. Prepare on half as it indicates on the package. Take the other half mix the proper amount of cold water and allow it to sit on the counter for a number of hours and see how long it takes for the two batch of gelatin to congeal.
