Supplement with Collagen

At Oh Lardy, you know we love our bone broth!  It is full of healing collagen, gelatin, minerals and has so many benefits for the body.  We love to drink it like a tea, add it to sauces and stir fries, make soups, even use it in pancake mixes (yes, I have done that!!).  

Because of the immense benefits of collagen and gelatin in bone broth, we also like to take collagen in supplement form.  Sometimes we feel we need a bit more collagen than we can drink bone broth.  In my house, we add hydrolyzed collagen to our morning coffee every day and often to smoothies, protein shakes and other drinks. 

There are also many other ways to add collagen to your diet but first let me tell you why it is so awesome!

What is Collagen?

Gelatin is basically just cooked collagen.  When you make bone broth, all the collagen in the bones and tendons are all cooked down, you end up with gelatin.  Collagen is a protein found only in animals and is pretty much in everything in our body!  We like to supplement with Hydrolyzed Collagen, which is just collagen that has been broken down into smaller pieces and is easier for the body to digest and absorb.

  1. The modern diet is comprised primarily of convenient, pre-packaged meals. These nutrient-deficient choices are full of synthetic flavor enhancers and lack the important dietary minerals our bodies require. Young Living offers a variety of detoxifying enzymes and mineral supplements to help rid the body of unnecessary and potentially damaging substances.
