Why all the hype about bone broth? What are the benefits of this healing, traditional food product?
We're here to answer your questions!
We’ll start off easy and look at some basic familiar nutrients that can be derived from bone broth.
Did you know that bones are basically 50 percent protein? Cooking them in a broth extracts the protein and amino acids - like collagen, glycine and glucosamine - that are then converted by your body into energy, stronger muscles, and a more effective immune system.
During the cooking process, many naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals seep into the broth from the bones. You may have heard of some of these guys - calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Pretty heavy hitters that all contribute to overall health.
WHAT SETS BONE BROTH APART
Sounds good so far, you may be thinking. But, what makes this stuff so special? The short answer is collagen. Bone broth is unique in that it utilizes ingredients that are rarely used but that produce a great deal of collagen. Namely the knuckle, patella, femur, and foot bones.
Collagen does a whole host of amazing things for the human body:
It promotes healthy skin and improves the skin’s elasticity, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, helps wounds heal faster, and protects against the signs of aging due to sun damage.
Increasing the amount of collagen in your body can also improve your joint health. Collagen can help rebuild tendons and ligaments which can lead to less inflammation and a decrease in joint pain.
One of the highly touted benefits of bone broth is its positive effect on digestive problems – particularly leaky gut. Collagen can help to improve the structure of the gut by restoring the stomach lining. This is an issue faced regularly by people suffering from IBS, inflammation, and celiac disease.
