Bone Broth Protein Greens Review
Bone Broth Protein Greens is a green drink that’s base uses a bone broth protein. While specifically, we wouldn’t call this a superfood drink, the concept is indeed incredibly healthy; hence, why I did this Bone Broth Protein Greens review on our superfood review site.
Bone broth, in and of itself, is super healthy stuff. The truth is, I use an Instant pot to make quite often. As a side note, making bone broth in an Instant Pot is incredible. You cut your time down from over 24 hours to just an hour or two.
Bone Broth Protein Greens is a protein drink that claims to have an “easily digestible protein powder” in play. Unless this is your first protein drink, I’m sure you’ve ended up with a sour stomach or two after consuming a protein drink. It is said to double as a gut friendly experience, which, is what bone broth does in its natural state. I also suggest having a look at our top 10 superfood green drink reviews before making a decision.

The superfood profile for Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Greens caters to simplicity. While there isn’t much in terms of variety, the potency and choice of powerful ingredients makes up a lot of ground. As I stated earlier, this drink is a bit off the beaten path of our usual reviews. The drink contains three major ingredients (all of which I’ve reviewed below). Two of which are organic. This also means you can expect a dairy free, gluten free, soy free, experience. They also claim non-GMO status.
The core of this drink is the chicken bone broth, it’s essentially your grandma’s recipe. They use 20 grams of bone broth, so in terms of what’s advertised, you get it. The other two ingredients are 5 grams, which is really good considering how good they are for you. This Bone Broth Protein Green review isn’t off to a bad start at all.
Another big benefit to Bone Broth Protein Greens is its ability to alkalize the human body. The manufacturer claims it has a detoxification effect. Based on the ingredients
Chicken Bone Broth Protein Concentrate: Bone broth has epic health benefits, there are no two ways around it. Bone broth is a superior way to treat digestive issues. It is also known to help eliminate allergy issues. It can improve your joint health, help you lose weight and serve as an immune booster. Ever wonder why grandma never got sick? Bone broth. Bone broth contains the powerful ingredient, collagen, which can literally help you transform your entire health profile. Collagen is amazing for the skin.
Organic Alfalfa Grass Juice: Alfalfa grass is an amazing source of nutrients and minerals, as well as amino acids. It has alkalizing, detox properties to it. And it is anti-fungal.
Organic Oat Grass Juice: Oat grass is 30% protein. It also possesses the highly sought after chlorophyll, as well as magneisum, iron and a host of other nutritional density.
Taste is a clearly subjective experience, most of the time. But not now. This is where the Bone Broth Protein Greens review lets down. I am pretty sure most everyone would agree that this stuff tasted like radiator fluid.
I’m exaggerating, but the fact is, it just isn’t good. Bone broth has a thicker density due to the presence of collagen (you want that). Here’s the thing, the fact that it doesn’t taste great is some of the reason that the drink is a pretty healthy experience.
Many drinks that “taste great” are loaded with sugar. Sugar is the great tasting substance in most things; I don’t think this is groundbreaking.
The other issue is that most bone broth is cooked using onions and carrots and other spices, this vastly changes the taste. It can come off soupier when homecooked.
Let’s just start by saying this stuff doesn’t come cheap. If you want it, it is going to cost you. Per serving, you are looking at spending about $2.45. Bone Broth Protein Greens rivals your Starbucks habit, however, it is a much healther experience than a Frappucino.
Here’s the thing, however, bone broth really is not a readily available product. And you must take that into strong consideration while reading this Bone Broth Protein Greens review. There are some places opening up in New York City and San Francisco, but otherwise, you must make your own, and that isn’t without potential complications. First, you need to find bones and you don’t want to go to just any grocery store for those. What’s in the animal bones is their entire health history. If you get chicken bones from previously sedentary, sick chickens, the cooking of the bones process will extract that toxic profile. You want grass fed bones. You can find them online, or call around for butchers.
So yes, it is pricey, but the value is in the rarity of the supplement. It passes the smell test for me.
Now, for .50 more perserving, you could get a whole lot more nutrition (40 grams, 12 grams of that vegan proteins) with something such as Kylea’s Total Living Drink Greens. Kylea will win the nutritional density war every time, but Bone Broth Protein Greens is a unique experience, which is what you are paying for.
PROS & CONS
- 20 grams of protein in the form of chicken bone broth is impressive
- 5 grams of organic oat and barley grass is excellent
- Uses juice extracts for the grasses
- Only contains two total superfood ingredients
- Doesn’t contain any probiotics, enzymes, herbs or antioxidants
- $2.45 might be justified for the uniqueness of bone broth as a supplement, but not as a nutrionally dense drink. There are better options, as mentioned above.
In terms of nutritional density, it just doesn’t stand up to green superfood drinks such as Total Living Drink Greens or Shakeoloy. But in terms of what it is, a bone broth drink, it certainly does have value. As mentioned above, it isn’t easy to find bone broth without cooking it yourself, so if that’s what you are looking for, this is a wonderful option. The remaining three ingredients are strong health boosters as well. The value isn’t bad, but isn’t the best. Maybe swing by our top 10 superfood green drink reviews before pulling the trigger.
