Bone Broth Protein Powder - any good?


Recently I came across an Organic, Non-GMO (blah..) bone broth protein powder in my grocery store checkout isle. So i went ahead and did some online research about it. The companies that make these are claiming that the stuff is great for joints, metabolism, anti-inflammation, energy and so on. It also provides 20g of Protein per serving.

I am sure that homemade bone broth is good for us but does anyone have any experience with a store bought broth protein powder? Would it help fight Pouchitis, Cuffitis and my muscle pain & fatugue?

I wouldn't buy something that is so cheap and simple to make...but that is a personal opinion...I would be afraid of what they might put in it or add to it (chemically speaking)...

But I am sure that there are some perfectly good brands that offer good quality products at a decent price. Go ahead and try it and let us know what you think

...yes, they have recently rediscovered the virtues of bone is full of natural gelatin which is one of the components of healthy joints...

If you wish to make it just go to your local butcher and ask for soup bones (they are often times free or at least very, very cheap).

Throw them into a pot of boiling water, add whatever herbs or aromatics that you like (garlic, onion, bay leaf, thyme, parsley, carrots, celery...) and let boil.

1 bone is good for about 2 cups of about 3-5 bones for a large pot.

Once boiled strain and keep in a jar in the can drink it as is or use as a base for other soups.



Hello, Maxx.

Ive never tried a powder bone broth. I drink bone broth or sometimes vegetable broth that I make ever since my reversal a year ago. It helped keep me hydrated from the beginning of my recovery and I believe it made the recovery period shorter and less complicated. If I don't drink it for a few days, I have pouchitis-like symptoms. I drink one Mason jar almost every day. I don't have pouchitis except by my own fault when I have an overloaded sugary dessert or too much refined starchy food.

It is easy to make as Sharon said in her post above. I bring beef bones to a boil, add carrots (that I eat; I don't throw away) and herbs and garlic, then lower heat to a gentle simmer with the lid on, to preserve as much liquid as possible, for approx. two hours. Longer if you like. If you don't want to make your own, Costco makes an organic chicken / beef broth and also an organic vegetable broth. The ingredients' list is good. It is under their own house brand name, Kirkland. You can use that broth as a base for so many soups by adding your own vegetables, or beef, and simmer for an hour or so. Beef tea! Or make a pot of rice with the broth. I wouldn't buy a bone broth powder. You don't know how it was made.

Thanks for your responses. The powder is not really cheap, its about $3.50 for single serving pack sold at Fresh Thyme (Organic/gourmet foods chain)

I will give it a try to see if it does anything.

Hi Maxx,

would like to know if you tried the bone broth powder and what results you received. 

Thanks Yvonne
