All You Need To Know About Bone Broth Collagen

There’s a reason chicken soup is known for its healing powers around the world, and that reason rests in the many restorative properties of bone broth collagen! Bone broth collagen contains all the essential amino acids that our bodies need to function, playing a key role in everything from retaining the hydration and elasticity of our skin, to blood cell, muscle and tissue formation, to gastrointestinal tract development and regulating our immune systems. Collagen is a type of protein that accounts for approximately 30% of all the protein in our bodies.You can think of collagen as the glue that holds our bodies together, a fundamental ingredient in the maintenance and development of our overall health and wellbeing.

Our bodies’ natural ability to produce collagen starts to decline by our early-to-mid twenties, effectively plummeting after the age of forty. While there is no way to prevent the decline of collagen production associated with aging, we may be able to reduce the rate of decline caused by environmental stresses such as sun exposure, smoking and high levels of sugar consumption. Don’t worry, you won’t need to buy expensive over-the-counter collagen supplements or over-priced skin creams to experience the multifaceted health and beauty benefits. All you need is a daily dose of bone broth collagen to help your body revitalize your skin for a more youthful glow, reduce joint pain and promote better digestion.

Compared to supplements, bone broth collagen is the most bio-available and nutrient-dense form of collagen you can get. That means our slow-simmered animal stock is the most efficient (and delicious!) way for your body to reap all the holistic health benefits this wholesome superfood has to offer.

Is Bone Broth Collagen The Same As Collagen Supplements?

Collagen is a type of high-quality protein made up of amino acids, and is an especially high source of glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine. Glycine is considered one of the most important “building blocks” in our bodies, playing a key role in the formation of muscles, ligaments, bone, skin as well as regulating important processes like relaxing the nervous system. These four amino acids are not as abundant in other sources of protein, so collagen is seen as royalty in the world of macro-nutrients. Bone broth collagen is naturally derived from a broad spectrum of animal sources and does not undergo intensive processing like the synthesized collagen found in most commercial supplements. Because of this, bone broth collagen contains more amino acids than their store-bought counterparts, which in turn are more readily absorbed, fueling our bodies and their complex systems more efficiently.

Types of Bone Broth Collagen and Potential Health Benefits

Consuming bone broth collagen benefits your whole body, but when it comes to choosing the best bone broth for your specific health needs, you should consider the three most prominent types of collagen found in bone broth.

Type 1 collagen makes up most of the collagen protein in your body and is primarily responsible for ensuring the elasticity of your skin. If your goal is to prevent or improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you may want to choose a bovine bone broth which is a great source of Type 1 and Type 3 collagen. Try sipping on our succulent grass-fed beef bone broth as another step in your bedtime skincare routine to ward off the effects of premature aging.

Type 2 collagen has been shown to help promote a healthy inflammatory response while playing a key role in protecting and maintaining our joints, cartilage and ligaments. So, if you struggle with the daily throbbing pain of arthritis, aching joints or other inflammatory health conditions, you may find some relief from cooking with our wide range of traditional and uniquely flavored chicken bone broths, which are especially high in this form of collagen.

Type 3 collagen is an essential component of our gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and reproductive systems. It can be found in our intestines, muscles, blood vessels and uteruses, and is most prominent in bovine sources. So, if you’re into building muscles and regular bowel movements, perhaps beef bone broth could be your new go-to post-workout protein snack.  

Clearly, not all collagen is created equal. Rest assured that whenever you’re choosing Bone Brewhouse‘s selection of all natural bone broth holistic health products, you’re giving your body a hearty dose of much-deserved (and mouth-watering) love.
