Collagen! I talk about it all the time because it’s so important to your overall health. I recommend collagen supplements for just about everyone to add to your body’s natural supply. For those of us who are over 40, it’s even more important because your body’s natural ability to make this critical amino acid is drastically reduced by our fourth decade. For women, it drops even further after menopause. That’s why I love Bone Broth! It’s one of the simplest and most delicious ways to increase your collagen intake.

Let’s talk a little bit more about why supplementing with collagen is so important and why my new Beef Bone Broth Collagen is one of the best ways to boost your intake. 

What Is Collagen?

Collagen — all 16 varieties of it! — is the most important and abundant structural protein in your body. Think of collagen as the “glue” that holds your body together. Your skin, bones, connective tissue, cartilage, and joints all depend on ample collagen to be healthy, strong, and flexible. Think of collagen as the “glue” that holds your body together. In fact, collagen comes from the Greek word kolla – meaning “glue.” It’s the fibrous protein found throughout your body, in organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, blood vessels, tendons, joints, cartilage, and your digestive system. 

Why Is It Hard to Get Enough Collagen?

Most of us cannot get enough collagen from our diets alone. Even those of us eating a clean, healthy, Paleo-inspired diet have trouble getting as much collagen as our distant ancestors did, let alone enough for optimal health. That’s because we don’t eat the same collagen-rich tendons and organ meat that our ancestors did. These just aren’t a part of our typical diet anymore.. So, unless you’ve got an eight-quart crockpot simmering just the right types of bones all day, then you are very likely in need of a high-quality Bone Broth Collagen supplement!

What Are the Benefits of Beef Bone Broth Collagen?

Bone Broth Collagen is fantastic for those concerned with leaky gut. Collagen from bone broth is full of amino acids and peptides that help maintain and promote optimal gut lining health. The cells lining your intestinal tract absolutely love this stuff, and so many of my patients report greater digestive comfort after using it. Supporting the gut lining is absolutely paramount for those concerned with autoimmunity, healthy thyroid function, and a balanced and normal inflammatory response.

Collagen from bone broth supports healthy weight management by optimizing lean muscle mass. It even helps curb sugar cravings by assisting with healthy insulin production and pancreatic function. My keto and Paleo-friendly Beef Bone Broth Collagen is also rich in conditionally essential amino acids that many of us are lacking in, such as glycine, which supports a healthy mood and restful sleep.

Choosing the Right Source of Collagen

Collagen from bone broth is critical if you’re looking to optimize the health of your muscles, bones, and joints, as well as your hair, skin, and nails. That’s why I developed Beef Bone Broth Collagen. Bone broth is a nutritional powerhouse. However, who has time to make it from scratch? My savory beef-soup-flavored Bone Broth Collagen is so delicious — I love sipping a hot mug of it! In fact, I formulated it to be a savory treat, just like a bowl of homemade beef soup. It’s perfect any time of day and all year round. 

When it comes to bone broth, purity is key. There are a lot of different bone broth choices out there, and it can be really difficult to find a clean, high-quality source. That’s why I custom formulated my own Beef Bone Broth Collagen powder. It’s sourced from grass-fed cows and is also 100% non-GMO. Of course, it doesn’t contain any gut-harming substances such as gluten, wheat, dairy, corn, soy, or yeast.

Who Should Try Bone Broth Collagen?

After the age of 25, your body’s natural collagen production begins to slow. As I mentioned earlier, by age 40, the decline is dramatic. That’s why collagen supplementation is a good idea at any age and particularly important for anyone over the age of 40. In addition, Beef Bone Broth Collagen is perfect for anyone who:

  • Doesn’t have time to make their own bone broth and wants a physician-formulated solution.
  • Is concerned about leaky gut and wants to maintain a healthy intestinal lining
  • Wants to optimize thyroid and immune function
  • Is looking to support joints and alleviate occasional joint pain from overuse or exercise
  • Wants to support fat burning by encouraging healthy lean muscle mass
  • Cares about strong and healthy hair, skin, and nails
  • Seeks a satisfying, delicious way to increase their collagen intake
