It has been praised for the several nutrients it packs that can help in improving joint health, boosting your immune system, and benefiting your skin and digestion.

Vacaville Chiropractor Explains bone broth protein

It is a nutritional supplement that can provide you with health benefits that you can acquire from bone broth and protein which are then conveniently packed in a single product.

Just like any other protein powder, bone broth protein just requires some water, or any liquid of your choice and you're all set.

This nutritional supplement is made by cooking chicken bones, tendons, ligaments, and water under sustained high heat and high pressure. The process will allow the broth to be cooked in a short time while maintaining all its nutrients. Its nutrients include calcium, chondroitin, glucosamine, magnesium, potassium, and hyaluronic acid which can be easily gone when it's being cooked for a long time.

The broth is then dehydrated at a low temperature and will be concentrated into powder.

Since bone broth protein is literally a concentrated bone broth, all of its protein is made directly from the broth and doesn't rely on other sources such as egg, soy, or whey. There are other bone broth supplements that are made from chicken bone broth, but some are also alternatives derived from grass-fed beef bones.

Nutritional Information

Bone broth contains a lot of nutrients which definitely gave it a reputation for having an impressive nutrient profile. A 22g serving of protein powder alone can give you:

  • Calories: 90
  • Carbs: 0 grams
  • Fat: 1 gram
  • Potassium: 8% of the RDI
  • Protein: 20 grams
  • Sodium: 6% of the RDI

The 20 grams of protein content in a single scoop already makes it in par with majority of the protein supplements found in the market. One heap scoop can provide you with nutrients and protein that is equal to 2.5 cups of liquid bone broth.

If you are one of those individuals who doesn't like protein supplements, then bone broth can be your thing since it is dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and paleo-friendly. There are some bone broth nutrients that aren't listed above which includes amino acid glycine, protein collagen, and joint health nutrients such as glucosamine and chondroitin. However, the nutritional labels won't exactly reveal how much of the individual nutrients is actually in there because of a couple of factors. This can vary depending on how long the broth is cooked, how much bone is in the recipe, what animal bones it came from, and whether or not there was enough acid used to remove the nutrients from the inside of the bones.

Benefits of bone broth protein

Before we start on this, just know that there are no scientific studies made on how bone broth and bone broth protein affect the health. People just assume the benefits based on the benefits of the said nutrients like proline, chondroitin, glycine, glucosamine, glutamine, and hyaluronic acid.

Here are the benefits that drinking bone broth protein can give you:

  • Appetite suppression - Since bone broth protein contains a high level of protein, it can greatly reduce your appetite. By eating more protein, your hunger hormones are reduced, and your fullness hormones are increased.
  • Less inflammation - Bone broth contains glutamine and glycine in which they can provide anti-inflammatory effects such as suppressing the inflammatory hormones TNF-a and IL-6, as well as suppressing free radicals which tend to damage the cells.
  • Reduced joint pain - Bone broth has a high content of chondroitin and glucosamine which is helpful in reducing joint pain for people suffering from osteoarthritis.
  • Reduced skin aging - The proline and hyaluronic acid content of bone broth can help reduce the effects of skin aging.
  • Weight loss - Bone broth is low in calories but high in protein. This can help boost your metabolism which in turn can reduce your appetite and burn more calories in the process.

Is it worth drinking?

If you are looking forward to enjoying the benefits of bone broth, then this is the idea that you should pursue. An entire pot of bone broth requires 48 hours to be made while a single scoop can equally deliver the same amount of benefits minus the time. However, not everyone is into protein powder.

For those who wants a simple protein supplement, then you always have the option to buy that one since both broth protein can be quite expensive yet is worthy as a health investment. Each scoop can already cost twice as much as the amount of an average protein supplement like whey protein. Also, bone broth protein doesn't always have a good balance of essential amino acids compared to the traditional protein powders. Because of this, bone broth protein may not be a good choice if you're taking a protein supplement as a way to gain muscle mass.

Should you try bone broth protein?

This is worthy to be tried especially if you're interested in bone broth benefits. A single scoop can already give you nutrients that are equal to 2.5 cups of bone broth which in turn can save you some time already. Make sure to also be wary of taking this supplement since there aren't enough scientific studies to support its benefits. Also, if you're interested in taking a protein supplement but don't have to rely of bone broth, then you can always go for other options that are available and comes at an affordable price.
