Lately I've heard a lot about the benefits of bone broth protein supplements. Is this really better than other types of protein?
Bone broth protein supplements are produced by dehydrating bone broth (typically from chicken bones). They have been promoted as having a wide range of benefits, from reducing inflammation and wrinkles to boosting mood and the immune system. Some of these claims relate to the fact that bone broth can be a good source of collagen. However, there are no published clinical studies demonstrating these effects in people taking bone broth supplements. There is evidence that chicken bone broth can be contaminated with lead — which is known to accumulate in bone. For more about this, see the "Bone Broth" section of the Protein Supplements Review >>
