Bone Broth – Worth the hype?
We often receive questions regarding products that supply collagen. Many of you have seen bone broth or collagen powders marketed directly to your patients. Does SP have something that is comparable or better? Here’s some information you should keep in mind for patients Health & Wellness education. Broth, preferably homemade, should be considered a healthy food option. It’s great to use as a base in soups and stews, as well as by itself. However, bone broth has to be cooked, and when anything is cooked, some of the protein constituents are broken down by heat and denatured. For example, a chuck roast cooked rare would normally be tough, but when you slow cook it for 6-8 hours, it falls apart due to the connective tissues, etc. being broken down. The denatured, cooked food most likely does not contain any of the normal cellular growth factors, other raw cellular components, or non-denatured raw collagen. Don’t get us wrong, bone broth is good for you, as it contains minerals and protein, but raw bone and collagen is a much better choice for therapeutic purposes. It’s those specific raw constituents that may help provide the important soft-tissue healing properties of the Standard Process products. That’s why they work so very well, and have been proven in use by tens of thousands of healthcare practitioners over several decades. Another thing to keep in mind is how the bone broth or collagen powder product is manufactured. Often utilizing heat and slow chemical reactions to achieve the desired results, the powder is more like a manufactured food-like substance and less like a whole food. Standard Process has been making whole food supplements using minimal to no heat in the manufacturing process for almost 90 years. Our products used for soft-tissue and bone strengthening, healing, and repair are: * Collagen-C (contains raw veal bone) * Ligaplex I & II (contains raw bovine bone) * Bio-Dent (contains raw bovine bone and raw veal bone) * Ostrophin-PMG (contains raw bovine bone) And of course… * Calcifood (contains raw veal bone and raw bovine bone) * also comes in a powder option, an excellent option for healthy shakes for all ages.
