Bone broth protein supplements are produced by dehydrating bone broth (typically from chicken or beef bones) and can be a good source of protein and, in particular, collagen — the main protein found in bone. There is some evidence, that, like other types of protein, collagen may help to build muscle
, and additionally, may help reduce joint pain
and improve skin elasticity and wrinkles
. However, most of the evidence for these uses are based on studies using collagen supplements, not bone broth. (See the Bone Broth Review
for more information and our tests of products).
To learn more about how bone broth compares to other types of protein, such as whey, casein, soy, rice, pea and hemp, see the What to Consider When Buying
section of the Protein Powders and Drinks Review.
