Difference Between Collagen and Bone Broth

To safeguard health and wellness, supplements have become not only a norm but also a necessity for most people. While most people use supplements for health reasons such as allergies, vital nutrient deficiencies, others use supplements with the aim of getting similar health benefits from a supplement as they would derive from a food item. Among the most common supplements include bone broth and collagen. While most people use the two terms simultaneously, they are different in various ways.

 

What is Collagen?

Responsible for various biological processes, collagen is the most common protein in mammals. It is found in bones, skin, tendons, ligaments, bone marrow, muscles, and cartilage. The production of collagen decreases with age, autoimmune conditions as well as stress, hence necessitating the need for supplementation. For easier absorption into the body, the supplements, which are available in the form of capsules, tablets, and powders, go through the process of hydrolyzation whereby they are broken down into peptides. While there are more than 30 forms of collagen, the most common collagen in our bodies include I, II, and III, whereby types I and III are abundant in beef bone broth.

Among its functions in the body include providing optimum bone and joint health, improved heart health, maintaining a healthy gut and weight, supporting connective tissues, muscles, and the skin.

 

What is Bone Broth?

Derived from boiling animal bones, bone broth is an excellent source of collagen, minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus not to mention the various amino acids as well as lipids. For all these amazing benefits to be reaped, the bones are boiled over long periods. For easier use, powdered bone broth is available, for those who may find the bone boiling process tasking. Among other health benefits of bone broth include the promotion and healing of gut health issues, acting as an anti-inflammatory and the boosting of the overall immune system. As a source of collagen, types I and III are abundant in beef bone broth while type II is abundant in chicken bone broth.
