Where to Buy Collagen Powder
I’ve discovered a website that offers several collagen products. In addition, Dr. Kellyann offers many resources including a blog and books. I’ve learned many facts concerning collagen while perusing her material.
I’d recommend reviewing her website before purchasing collagen supplements.
Collagen protein reviews will be one of the areas of focus on my website. So, I’ll begin with a couple of her products.
Who is Dr. Kellyann?
She studied biological medicine at the Marion Foundation and Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland. While studying at this institute she discovered the benefits of collagen and bone broth in relation to healing the gut and slowing the aging process. Her primary focus resides in a lifestyle that counters inflammation.
Her philosophy appeals to me because I’ve learned from many alternative sources that the skin is a reflection of internal health. From my own experience, this has been true. During my younger days, nearly everything in my diet was unhealthy. Hence, I had terrible acne until I had a revelation and eliminated certain foods from my diet, including soda, dairy, and drastically reduced by sugar intake.
She has written four books, which are offered on her website:
- 1) Dr. Kellyann’s 10-Day Belly Slimdown
- Focused on, Mini-Fasting , Collagen and Bone Broth and Nutrient-Rich and Anti-inflammatory foods.
- 2) Dr. Kellyann’s Bone Broth Diet – focuses on the same elements as the ten Day book and includes over 100 recipes
- 3) Dr. Kellyann’s Bone Broth Cookbook – contains over 125 recipes with a focus on bone broth.
- 4) Psoriasis & Eczema Protocol – a study on how reducing inflammation improves skin health. Healing the body from the inside is the focus, via adding or removing certain foods from the diet.
Complete Collagen Protein
$48-$64 – depending on the flavor ie. flavorless, orange cream, chocolate almond, or vanilla almond
1 scoop (20g) 30 servings per container
Ingredients – Grass-fed bovine hydrolyzed collagen
What is AIP Approved?
While reviewing her collagen protein powders the concept of AIP Approved was something new and interesting for me.
The autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet is designed to help reduce inflammation in the body to order to relieve symptoms of autoimmune disorders.
An autoimmune is a condition in which a person’s immune system mistakenly attacks and damages its own tissues. Again, inflammation is the root of these issues. Furthermore, “leaky gut syndrome” is tied into this cycle of disease. Leaky Gut explains the process involving small holes in the intestines causing toxic material to enter into the body’s bloodstream. This triggers the immune system to react in error by attacking bodily tissues.
Bone broth is a recommended food for those on an AIP diet. Other fermented foods such as kombucha, kefir, and sauerkraut are included in this diet.
Complete Collagen Powder
Dr. Kellyann’s collagen protein supplement comes in the form of a varying flavor peptide powder. Her products are made from beef in a highly concentrated form through a proprietary process that allows it to be easily digestible.
The powder can be added to a meal or perhaps included in a smoothie blended with a Vitamix.
Health Benefits of Collagen Supplements:
- Improve joint comfort
- Promote hair thickness
- Support healthy blood sugar levels

- Support gut health

- No Antibiotics
- No Dairy

The reviews on Dr. Kellyann’s website give her Complete Collagen Powder a 5 out 5 rating. While perusing the reviews I found some interesting commentary.
The powder has a good taste with no grittiness and it dissolves well into drinks such as coffee. Apparently, other collagen powders didn’t dissolve as well. I found this interesting because I’ll put the powder into a Vitamix drink but perhaps I’ll include her powder in an herbal tea drink.
Other commentators lauded Complete Collagen Powder as being a price bargain based on the 20 g per serving.
Other people include the powder in cereal or a protein shake, while others include the collagen in baked goods.
I found one 3 out 5 rating but overall everyone seemed pleased and nearly all the ratings were 5 stars.
Liquid Bone Broth
The second major category of items sold by Dr. Kellyann are assorted types of Liquid Bone Broth. The different types of Liquid Bone Broth are Beef, Chicken, AIP Chicken Broth, or a Chicken and Beef Bundle.

Beef Bone Broth
I’ll comment on the Beef Bone Broth because it is the most inexpensive option and the most highly reviewed.
What is Bone Broth?
It is a broth made from beef (or chicken), flavored with onions, parsley and garlic. The broth is simmered for 24 hours with a tad of vinegar in filtered water. Then, they packed inside 24 ounce BPA-free pounces. The packets are packed in dry ice as they’re delivered.
Uses of Bone Broth

- Add to soups and stews
- Use as a substitute for wine in recipes.
- Add to sauces, dressings, and other meals
Benefits of Bone Broth

- Joint-protecting glucosamine and chondroitin
- Inflammation-fighting properties that help you lose weight
Reviews of Liquid Bone Broth and a Final Word
The customers on Dr. Kellyann’s website ranked the Bone Broth 4 out of 5 stars. Some people didn’t like the taste; however overall people commented that her product tasted favorably compared to other similar items.
Note – there is one review for the chicken bone broth and that person stated it is the best they’ve tasted.
Also, Dr. Kellyann offers other Bone Broth supplements that are in powdered form. They offer the same benefits at a cheaper price and perhaps a better taste.
Personally, I’ll try these products over the next few months. I’ve been looking for a steady collagen product to use.
