Have you heard that collagen peptides are good for you but aren’t sure how to incorporate them in your diet?
Do you have questions about bone broth, and are wondering whether bone broth and collagen are essentially the same thing?
We get it. When it comes to what we consume, we should be asking lots of questions. As they say, we are what we eat (and drink.) We thought we’d cover some of our more common questions about bone broth and collagen upfront to make it as easy as possible for you to choose the right products for your needs and lifestyle.
Keto or Low Sodium? Beef or Thai Curry? Before we answer which bone broth is the right one for you, let’s dig into some bone broth basics.
⇨ What is bone broth?
Bone broth is an ancient collagen-rich and nutrient-dense drink that can deliver multiple health benefits. It’s packed full of healing vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more that can reduce inflammation in the body, treat leaky gut, improve joint health, maintain healthy skin and boost overall immune function.
⇨ What makes LonoLife bone broth special?
LonoLife makes its bone broth the old-fashioned way — by slowly simmering the bones of grass-fed, pasture-raised cattle or chicken bones. We add a rich, savory blend of chicory root, black pepper, sea salt, and a blend of herbs and spices (our family secret!) for the perfect, on-the-go health drink.

⇨ Which is better for me: collagen peptides or bone broth?
A lot of people ask this question, and it actually comes down to preference because both are good sources of collagen and amino acids. Bone broth provides a delicious hot drink that can be consumed at any time of the day and is rich in collagen and essential amino acids. With a range of different flavors — from our Tomato Beef Bone Broth to our Thai Curry flavor — it’s a delicious and fulfilling snack by itself.
Collagen peptides are a highly digestible powder form of collagen that’s been broken down into easily dissolvable amino acids. They are flavorless on their own (although we offer a selection of delicious flavors such as Cucumber Lemon and Coconut Pineapple) and can be added to anything from smoothies to cookie dough. So the real question is: are you looking for a hot drink laden with health benefits or a powdered supplement to add to your drinks and food?
⇨ LonoLife offers a lot of bone broth choices. Which one is right for me?
This comes down to two things: taste preference and dietary choices. Whether you enjoy adding a Thai Curry infusion to your meals or are following a strict keto diet, you can choose the bone broth that is best for you. For example, while all our broths are keto-friendly, you might find the keto-specific flavors suit you best thanks to the added fat content. Similarly, if you are following a low-sodium diet, pick the Low Sodium Beef Bone Broth or Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth.
Now we’ve covered the bone broth basics, it’s time to take a closer look at its popular cousin — collagen peptides!
⇨ What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. Of all the many thousands of proteins your body has, about 30% are collagen proteins. Think of collagen as the glue that holds your whole body’s structure together, including your skin, gut lining, bones, and joints. Frequent stress and the aging process can degenerate levels of collagen in your body. It is believed that by consuming collagen protein, we can encourage the reformation of collagen.
⇨ What makes LonoLife collagen special?
