Collagen and Bone Broth

“If I had a dollar for every time someone asked our team about Collagen but didn’t realise that one of the best sources in the world is in Bone Broth”

Collagen and Bone Broth are both very misunderstood sources of nutrients and protein.

Collagen is a protein found in the human body that helps to provide structure and strength to our skin, bones, and connective tissues. It is the most abundant protein in the body and is essential for maintaining healthy skin, bones, and joints. While all types of collagen are important for overall health, there are several different types of collagen that have different functions and benefits.

Type I collagen is the most abundant type of collagen in the body and is found in skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and organs. It is responsible for providing structure and strength to these tissues and helps to keep them healthy. Type II collagen is found in cartilage and is important for joint health. Type III collagen is found in the walls of blood vessels and helps to keep them strong and flexible.

Type IV collagen is found in the basement membrane of the skin and helps to keep the skin hydrated and supple. Type V collagen is found in the hair and nails and helps to keep them strong and healthy. Type VI collagen is found in the cornea of the eye and helps to keep it clear and healthy.

Each type of collagen has its own unique benefits and functions, and it is important to understand the differences between them.

Different types of Collagen are also determined by how much they have been processed. Some are acid washed, others use different treatments to seperate the proteins and some are blends.

So if you are looking for a great collagen that is natural, unprocessed and is absorbed well by the body, and now you know that collagen comes from the different parts of the animal, then what food source is made by simmering bones, ligaments, tendons, skin and releases the proteins in the process. Yes, you’ve got it. It’s the Bone Broth or Healthy Stock.

In our society today, we are pushed by a narrative that everything we eat must have over 15 grams of protein or it’s not going to help. This simply couldn’t be any further from the truth. If you are eating well, drinking broth and other bioavailable sources of collagen and protein, you will easily absorb the protein that you need on a daily basis.

A great, organic bone broth is almost 90% collagen protein. Good for your body, good for your cells and metabolism. The more natural and unprocessed your collagen source is, the better the benefits to your body. This also applies to Organic versus Non Organic sources. You are guaranteed that if the source is being fed non organic material as their feed, then the toxins and pesticides used to spray that feed will end up in your collagen/protein source as well. When a toxin is added into our food source, the body has to work overtime to then try to remove that toxin from the body through organs, sweat, going to the toilet. This extra work can offset the health benefits that you were after in the first place.


Next time you go to grab a protein source, turn it over and read whats in it. Generally it will have lots of nasties to help bind the bar or treat, lots of sugars or even worse, fake sugars. Just have a nice cup of broth instead, your body and mind will thank you for it.
