1. It’s naturally anti-aging
Unlike other forms of collagen protein, bone broth contains hyaluronic acid. As the skin’s natural hydrator, the humectant works to draw moisture from the air into your skin and houses the ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. And that’s not all. The combination of collagen protein and hyaluronic acid in bone broth work from the inside out to improve moisture levels in the skin — which decline with age — diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a youthful inner glow.
