What is the difference between Bone Broth and Collagen?


Which one is better? Which one should I be taking?


These are some of the common questions most people have when it comes to collagen and bone broth.


To keep it simple, Bone Broth is taken for overall health. It contains proteins, collagen, amino acids and so many more nutrients such as vitamins and minerals along with the main nutrient for joint health → GAG, GAG is short for glycos-amino-glycans. GAG is released during the simmering of beef or chicken bones for 6-8 hrs. This is a time-consuming task and not everyone has the time for it thus the popularity of Bone Broth powders.



On the other hand, collagen is the protein in Bone Broth and is isolated by the means of hydrolyzation. This way you are able to get a more concentrated dose of collagen along with the amino acid profile such as glycine, proline, glutamine, and arginine and so on, all of which help strengthen the bones and joints, making them more resilient and flexible. Collagen also helps support skin health and helps with recovery after exercise and of course, helps with healing the gut.


So the question is which one should you be taking?


Well, it’s almost like choosing between a shovel or a rake. It all depends on what you’re planning on using it for.



Bone broth is a great general tonic that has numerous nutrients to support your overall health. It can benefit anyone who needs a boost of vitality and is perfect for colder months to give your immune system a boost.


Whereas Collagen is great for more targeted support for sore joints, skin health and even gut health. Because it contains more of concentrated nutrients you are more likely to feel the benefits sooner.
