Are you going to be getting the same benefits of bone broths if you substitute it with powdered gelatin? Do you get benefits from one that the other doesn't give you?
Also, if you do take it or recommend taking it, are you able to mix powdered gelatin into fruit juices pretty easily?

Well.. kind of the whole point is to eat whole real food and bone broth falls into that category. You're taking all those nice bones that you picked out, roasting them, putting into a pot with vegetables and herbs et al. You're making it, so you know exactly what's going in that pot and into your bod.
That being said, if there are limitations in your life that won't allow you to make your own - then definitely use the powdered. IMO Great Lakes is wonderful in a pinch. I fully admit in the summer when it's 110 that no way am I going to go through the bone broth from scratch process. I have access to amazing homemade stock and will add the powdered into a cup of heated broth, sip like tea.
Notes: You can mix it into pretty much anything you like - juice and more. It takes 1tb to gel 2c of liquid.

After years of lovely, long, strong nails, all of a sudden, my nails are peeling, chipping, and super weak. (Almost bendable!) Eek!
I'm not the hugest fan of bone broth on its own, but I do make plenty and use it as the base for soups. I started drinking more of it in the past couple of days and am adding extra powdered bovine gelatin, because this business with my nails has got to stop.
Does anybody know anything about the manufacturing process for powdered gelatin? Is it similar to protein powders in that it's sprayed at extremely high pressure or dehydrated, or something? Sorry if I'm not using the correct terminology. I just know the way they make other powdered things tends to be pretty complicated and high-tech. And I know gelatin is not the same thing as protein powders (like from whey)...just curious as to whether the manufacturing process is similar.

i dont believe this... i am 29 and have a mother with osteoarthritis and I feel pains in my right knee from time to time.. Mutton broth and chicken broth have eradicated th epain completely for both of us..
Broth is EXTREMELY Nutritious as whatever minerals are available definitely are assimilating in the body unlike milk etc which has to go through a terse digestive process and many nutrients lost in the bargain .

I had the same question.
Seems for digestive issues, gelatin, and glutamine supplementation would be just as good for your gut - ideally after if you ate the gelatin with some vitamin A+D (a bit of gelatine after a meat meal).
Bone broth just seems a bit weird for me. Yes its the whole food etc, but meh...
