My mom is always telling me that I should up my protein intake. Like with a lot of things she tells me to do, I didn't take it seriously, since I still consider myself pretty young. Plus, I always thought I was getting enough protein in my diet from meat. But if I was going to take a supplement, protein probably wouldn't be my first choice.
When I was visiting her at home recently, she encouraged me to taste a new protein supplement she had been taking by Paleovalley - their Bone Broth Protein. She added it to my coffee for me, and I was surprised. It really didn't taste bad or chalky. But I still wasn't sold on it. Why would I need a protein supplement?
That's when she explained all the benefits to me. To start it benefits our skin, muscle tissue, bones, and tendons. It also boosts our metabolism, supports our gut health digestion, lowers our risk of heart disease, supports joints, and helps our hair and nails grow. Plus other stuff, all at the same time. Who knew collagen did all that?!
I'll admit it, after hearing this, I started to reconsider. That evening, I went on the Paleovalley site to check out their products properly. I read that not only is the issue that our bodies process protein less efficiently and need more of it to maintain muscle mass and strength. It turns out that previous generations used to eat a lot more protein-rich bone broth than we do today.
I still wondered whether or not this product was legit. So I kept reading.
I found out that a lot of protein products are sourced from animal skin instead of their bones, and when it is, we miss out on all of the extra nutrients and restorative benefits of the bones. This is why a lot of people simmer beef bones for days to try and get the benefits from the broth.
Paleovalley's bone broth protein is crafted from healthy, grass-fed, pasture-raised beef bones, and they don't add any chemicals or solvents to extract it. Also, a lot of bone broth protein and collagen products often claim to be made from "grass-fed" cows when they're not. They're actually finished on grains, possibly GMO grains.
Paleovalley has done the research and is the only one of its kind made from truly grass-fed cows raised on pesticide-free grass pastures. The cows are never fed any GMO, antibiotics, steroids, or hormones. Not to mention, it's gluten-free!
Lastly, I saw that Paleovalley has a 60 Day 100% money-back guarantee, so if you aren't thrilled with your order, they'll refund you without any questions asked. After that, I realized I had nothing to lose, so I ordered a bag.
I'm about a month in, taking it daily, and almost finished my first bag. All I can say is that I feel great! My gut health has been the best it's been in a while, and overall I feel amazing. It's been a subtle change but a definite one. Its subtle taste makes it super easy to add into smoothies, soups - anything really!
It gives me peace of mind knowing I'm benefitting my health with a product that's legit and not full of chemicals. Plus, Bone Broth Protein has been super easy to introduce to my diet. You can add it to smoothies, coffees, even baked goods.
The only hard thing about this has been admitting to my mom that she was right all along! I only wish I had listened to her sooner!
