Paleovalley Bone Broth Protein Powder

When it comes to gut health, bone broth is one of my ‘go to’ items I add to my diet. But, not all collagen is created equal. Many brands use poor-quality bones and heating methods that remove all of the potent benefits of collagen.

That is why I choose to use Paleovalley Bone Broth Protein Powder, you can get all the gut healing benefits without the mess from a company that uses only 100% grass-fed and finished cows and is not processed with high heat or extracted with harmful chemicals.

There are no fillers, flow agents, or added flavors. There is only ONE ingredient in this product and it’s bovine bone broth protein. Hurry and grab yours from Paleovalley.com
