In one way or another, just about every culture throughout history has used a form of bone broth to improve health and support a healthy immune system. Because it’s chock-full of nutrients and easy to digest (even for people with compromised gut health), bone broth plays a major role in many programs designed to help support digestive functions and nutrient absorption, as well as to restore integrity of the gut lining. By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help promote healthy gut integrity while reducing permeability and inflammation. Here are the six major benefits of bone broth.
PROTECTS JOINTS – Bone broth is one of world’s best sources of natural collagen. As we get older, our joints naturally experience wear-and-tear, and we become less flexible. As bone broth simmers, collagen from the animal parts leaches into the broth and becomes readily absorb-able to help restore cartilage.
GOOD FOR THE GUT – Studies show that gelatin is beneficial for restoring strength of the gut lining and fighting food sensitivities (such as to wheat or dairy), helping with the growth of probiotics (“good bacteria) in the gut, and supporting healthy inflammation levels in the digestive tract.
MAINTAINS HEALTHY SKIN – Collagen helps form elastin and other compounds within skin that are responsible for maintaining skin’s youthful tone, texture and appearance. Collagen integrity is accredited with helping reduce the visible signs of wrinkles, decreasing puffiness and fighting various other signs of aging.
SUPPORTS IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTION – Bone broth is one of the most beneficial foods to consume to restore gut health and therefore support immune system function (70-80% of the immune system is made in the gut) and healthy inflammation response. Collagen/gelatin and the amino acids proline, glutamine and arginine help seal openings in the gut lining and support gut integrity.
BOOSTS DETOXIFICATION – Today in the Western world, the average person is exposed to an array of environmental toxins, pesticides, artificial ingredients and chemicals of all sorts. Bone broth is considered a powerful detoxification agent since it helps the digestive system expel waste and promotes the liver’s ability to remove toxins, helps maintain tissue integrity and improves the body’s use of antioxidants.
AIDS METABOLISM AND PROMOTES ANABOLISM – Amino acids found in bone broth have numerous metabolic roles, including building and repairing muscle tissue, supporting bone mineral density, boosting nutrient absorption and synthesis, and maintaining muscle and connective tissue health. Glycine found within collagen helps form muscle tissue by converting glucose into usable energy, plus it slows cartilage, tissue and muscle loss associated with aging by improving the body’s use of antioxidants.
With all of the many health benefits of consuming bone broth, my only question for you is: “When do you plan on replacing your coffee with bone broth?”
