Amino Acids, Anti-Inflammatories, & Electrolytes

Amino Acids, Anti-Inflammatories, & Electrolytes

It's no secret that bone broth contains crucial nutrients for health and wellness. But do you know what exactly those nutrients are, and what they do for our bodies? We'll tell you!

Amino Acids:

Also known as “the building blocks of life”, amino acids are the organic compounds that combine to form proteins and can assist in protecting the gut barrier, stabilizing digestive processes (for better absorption of vital nutrients) and can help the body break down food. Amino acids in bone broth also play a key role in immune response and instructing immune cell function - and some even have antioxidant properties.

A few of the most important amino acids found in bone broth are:

  • Glycine - supports the Central Nervous System and can help quality of sleep.
  • Glutamine - makes other amino acids + glucose and can help support gut & immune function.
  • Arginine - helps make proteins & creates nitric oxide within the body for blood circulation.
  • Proline - another protein-building block with a unique structure unlike other amino acids.

Anti-Inflammatories:

Inflammation can lead to all sorts of other issues…which is why we stress the importance of keeping inflammatory responses at bay with the help of bone broth.

Two key amino acids from the list above - glycine and arginine - are exceptionally crucial for this role. Working together, they can help curb chronic inflammation and therefore help reduce the negative effects.

Electrolytes:

You've probably heard that electrolytes can combat dehydration, but they also serve so many other important functions.

When the body is low on electrolytes, all sorts of functions can be affected, such as: blood flow & clotting, muscle contractions, acid balance, and fluid regulation. Electrolytes can help regulate chemical reactions and create stability between fluids inside and outside of cells.

Bone broth contains nutrients and minerals that support electrolyte balance, like: potassium, phosphorus, chloride, magnesium, and sodium.

The Truth About Collagen: 5 Facts & 2 Myths

The Truth About Collagen: 5 Facts & 2 Myths

Fact #1: Collagen is kind of a big deal.

Simply put, collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and is made naturally when proteins are broken down into amino acids, which then help build other proteins in the body.

That “youthful glow” everyone always talks about? That is collagen's main job! It gets all the credit for skin elasticity, hydration, strength, and suppleness.

Fact #2: Collagen is crucial for aging gracefully.

As we age, collagen production begins to decrease. As a result, our skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic, resulting in wrinkle formation and the appearance of lines.

We also begin to see effects of collagen depletion in other parts of the body:

  • Bones become weaker and more fragile.
  • Joints become less lubricated, making it tough to stay active.
  • Muscle function decreases, affecting mobility and balance.

Fact #3: The best way to get more collagen is straight from the source.

While collagen replacements come in many forms, not all are created equally. The richest sources come from bone, skin, joint material, and certain organs.

Eating a balanced diet of protein-rich foods (like chicken, fish, beef, eggs, dairy, legumes, nuts and whole grains) and a variety of fresh produce can help reduce the effects of collagen loss.

And, as you'll see in Myth #1, whole foods are known to be a superior source of collagen over processed powders or other products.

Fact #4: Collagen boasts more benefits than just beauty.

While collagen replacements come in many forms, not all are created equally. The richest sources come from bone, skin, joint material, and certain organs

  • Strengthening bones & ligaments, lubricating joints, and supporting muscle function.
  • Gut health: Improving the lining of our digestive system, as well as connective tissue.

In addition to supporting skin, hair, and nail health, collagen provides lubrication for the joints and helps to improve muscle function, thereby reducing risks associated with physical activity. It also helps strengthen bones. (Pro-tip: getting more calcium alone isn't the secret to bone health…it's the combo of calcium and collagen that REALLY gets the job done.)

The most surprising benefit, however, is that collagen can help protect the body from bad bacteria by improving the lining of the digestive system. This can help counter inflammatory responses within the body and has positive effects on the immune system as well!

Fact #5: Bone broth is an excellent source of collagen.

Any foods that help create the building blocks you need for optimal skin health (amino acids like proline, lysine, and glycine) are beneficial for a natural beauty routine.

Bone broths – especially those made with high-quality ingredients and cooked slowly for a long period of time to extract collagen – are exceptional in this department, since they not only contain crucial amino acids, but also calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, glucosamine, chondroitin, and many other nutrients.

Plus, bone broth comes in a bioavailable form – meaning the body can make use of it easily and right away.

Myth #1: Serums and supplements are good enough to replace depleted collagen.

Despite what the beauty industry will tell you, these are some of the least effective options – and therefore our least-recommended. Processed powders and potions just don't work as well.

Lotions and creams only provide a barrier to the outer layers of skin, as their molecules can be too big to reach the inner layers (where collagen resides). While they may make you feel radiant for a short time, they're not doing much for inner beauty, which is at the core of collagen replacement.

Injectable serums come with their own set of risks, too. They can be painful, expensive, and are a temporary band-aid for collagen production.

Capsules or containers that contain hydrolyzed collagen - aka collagen peptides – are also risky. The processes by which these forms of collagen are made can compromise the integrity of pure collagen, and can therefore diminish the effects. Not only that, but the amount of collagen in each serving can be far less than the amount in a whole food source like bone broth.

Myth #2: It's too late for me to start replacing collagen production.

It's never too late to start a wellness journey

(Let's say it again, all together now: It's NEVER too late to start a wellness journey.)

Although collagen production begins to decline in our twenties and thirties, there isn't a deadline to begin getting as much of it back as you can!

And the best way to start is by getting the best bone broth, made by us.

Ways to Enjoy Our Bone Broths

Ways to Enjoy Our Bone Broths

Our Bone Broth flavors make it easy to drink daily - or to mix with your favorite recipes. Sip as-is or add ingredients to suit your taste buds!

Good For Any Time of Day

You can have it once a day as a wellness treat, or as many times as you’d like. Here are the most common times of day we pick up our favorite sips:

  • Early Morning Wake-Up → get sustained energy from the best source of satiating protein.
  • Mid-Morning Break → stay full before lunch…so you don't reach for that bag of chips.
  • Afternoon Pick-Me-Up → instead of opting for caffeine, get a crash-free bone broth boost.
  • Evening Wind-Down → amino acids in bone broth are great for energy, but also restful sleep.

Supports Many Lifestyle Choices

We discussed the countless health benefits that come from drinking bone broth (in the Core Benefits section above), but here are more specific reasons people add Kettle & Fire to their wellness routine:

  • Staying on Track → whether you're on a limited or restrictive diet, or just want to shed a few pounds, bone broth is a great catalyst for a healthy lifestyle.
  • Intermittent Fasting → nutrients in bone broth can help you ease into - and out of - an intermittent fast. It also helps keep you satiated, so you're not as tempted to break a fast for unhealthy snacks.
  • Recipe Elevation → we normally recommend that you cook with our line of Cooking Broths, but many people prefer to pour our Bone Broths into their favorite dishes. Not only do they add depth of flavor, but the nutritional value is unbeatable by other stock standards.
  • Vitamin & Mineral Deficiencies → the collagen, protein, and amino acid benefits of bone broth are often the ones most talked about, but there are a ton of other vitamins and minerals in our bone broths, including: Vitamins A, B2, B12, and E, omega-3s, omega-6s, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, magnesium, and potassium…to name a few. Not to mention that our flavored broths have additional benefits from anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric and digestion supporting ones like ginger.
