What is Bone Broth Protein?

Simple enough, bone broth protein is a powder made from bone broth protein concentrate. If you’re familiar with Dr. Axe, then you may have seen his line of protein powders already. Dr. Josh Axe is one one of the leaders in the bone broth protein industry and has brought numerous varieties to health food store shelves that are all a part of his Ancient Nutrition line of products.

These bone broth protein powders are paleo and keto-friendly and are rich in collagen and amino acids to not only support muscle recovery but to support gut health as well.

The Benefits of Bone Broth Protein

If you are searching for a new protein powder to add to your post-workout shake, bone broth protein may be an ideal option, especially if you suffer from gut health issues, and here’s why.

Bone broth is known to help support those with digestive health issues, which let’s be honest, we all could use a digestive health tune-up every now and then. While, it is thought to help seal the little tight junctions in your gut which can be super beneficial for those with leaky gut syndrome.

Bone broth is also rich in collagen which can also help support the gut lining, reduce inflammation, and  support skin elasticity (hello youthful looking skin.)
