Bone broth protein powders are made up of dehydrated bone broth which promises a large dose of protein, collagen, vitamins and minerals in every dose.
Bone broth protein is basically made just like how bone broth is made which includes bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage of chicken and beef cooked at high heat with water. In industrial scale, manufacturers use high heat pressure so that the broth can be cooked in a shorter amount of time but the nutrients are still present. There are multiple nutrients present including magnesium, chondrotin, glucosamine, potassium and calcium. After the liquid is cooked, the bones and other matter is filtered and the liquid is dehydrated so that it becomes to powder form. Other excipient ingredients can also be added such as artificial sweeteners and flavor. The final result is a protein powder that is beneficial in nutrients, fats and protein.

There are variety of nutrients and electrolytes, which are all important for different processes and functions in the body. Like magnesium and calcium are essential for bone growth and structure. A study was conducted in 2016 which showed that chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine which are both naturally occurring minerals help reduce joint pain and it’s pain relief is similar to a pain injection. This has showed evidence that individuals with osteoarthritis showed reduced amount of pain in their joints.
Other than that, broth protein is also like a probiotic which means its pro gut and helps strengthen the digestive system. Gelatin is present which helps support the intestinal health. Studies have shown that in combination of gelatin and collagen helps the lining of the stomach and acts as a barrier to toxins therefore supporting gut health.
