With all this frigid winter weather happening across the states, it's time to cozy up and nourish our bodies with something extra special – bone broth collagen! This magical elixir is not just a trend; it's a powerhouse of health benefits that your body will love. Perhaps not as popular as regular collagen, bone broth collagen offers additional nutrients and support. Let's dive into the wonderful world of bone broth collagen and discover why it's the perfect addition to your winter (or any season, really) routine.
What is bone broth and how is bone broth made?
Bone broth is similar in nature and make to regular stock or broth - but shouldn’t be confused as either. While stock is made from boiling animal bones and broth is made by boiling animal meat and skin, bone broth is a wonderful combination of the two made by simmering animal bones and connective tissue (think chicken, beef, or even fish) along with veggies, herbs, and spices.
Bone broth has been a staple of the human diet since ancient times and has its use in many places within both the kitchen and a healthy diet. Chicken bone broth, beef bone broth, and pork bone broth are the most common types, each with their own levels of nutrients and forms of use. No one type can truly be described as being the best bone broth, as the varying levels of fats, amino acids, proteins, and nutrients may prove more or less beneficial to any one individual's needs, diet, and flavor preferences.
The magic happens during the slow cooking process, where collagen from the bones breaks down into gelatin (also known as hydrolyzed collagen), infusing the liquid with its incredible health benefits, while additional nutrients are pulled from the marrow, connective tissues, skin, and other ingredients. The combination of all the ingredients together are what gives bone broth collagen some potent health benefits.
Unfortunately, in our modern, busy lifestyles the long process of making bone broth (it can take up to as long as 8 hours depending on your recipe and ingredients) means it’s not as convenient to add to a routine as many would like. This is why we are so excited to introduce our newest product: Bone Broth Collagen.
