How to Enjoy the Benefits of Collagen–without Bone Broth

Candida diet sources of collagen

It’s all the rage among holistic health professionals: bone broth.

Seems bone broth is a panacea for pretty much every gut-related problem, from leaky gut to autoimmune disorders to indigestion.

And the reason why? Its gelatin content (and the collagen yield that occurs as a result of gelatin). . 

But what if you can’t, or won’t, consume bone broth? Is there a way to find plant-based sources of collagen–without bone broth?

I talk about the issue, and other food alternatives, in today’s video.

  1. Thank you for this! I see so many of my fellow health coaches giving in to the bone broth craze, and it drives me nuts!

    Omg! Thank you for speaking on this topic. I am so tired of hearing about bone broth being the answer to everything.
    The look on your face is exactly how I feel. Gross. Your positive outlook on vegetarian eating is very inspirational.
    Thank you for all your help!

    • Thanks so much, Diane, and glad it was helpful! I don’t know whether everyone can benefit equally from plant vs animal collagen production (the difference, of course, is that with plant foods, our bodies make the collagen; with bone broth, it’s already there in the broth, and we’re ingesting it), but it seems to me that a healthy, functioning body should have no trouble synthesizing enough from these foods!

  3. Oh, I love this! Bone broth, schmone schmoth!
