The key ingredient to an amazing soup, is in the broth!
Bone broth is not only delicious, but it is what I personally classify as a ‘Super-food’, due to it’s nutritional profile.
Bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor, and they boost healing.
Bone Broth Benefits
I have found bone broth stock to be the No. 1 thing you can consume to:
- PROTECT JOINTS
- Bone broth is one of the best sources of natural collagen. [ Collagen is a protein found in animals (bones, skin, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and bone marrow) ]
- Collagen in bone broth becomes readily available for absorption, to restore cartilage, when consumed.
- GUT HEALTH
- Another beneficial compound found in bone broth is gelatin, which aides in restoring strength to the gut lining, and fights food sensitivities (such as to wheat and dairy).
- Gelatin also helps with the growth of probiotics (good bacteria) in the gut, supporting healthy inflammation levels in the digestive tract.
- MANIFESTS HEALTHY SKIN
- Collagen helps form elastin (and other nutrients found in skin), that helps to restore, and maintain skin’s youthful appearance.
- SUPPORTS IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTION
- By restoring gut health, bone broth also supports healthy immune system function, and a healthy inflammation response.
- BOOSTS DETOXIFICATION
- Bone broth contains powerful detoxification agents that helps the digestive system to expel toxins (ie environmental toxins, pesticides, artificial ingredients, and chemicals of all sorts.
- Also contains potassium and glycine, which assists in cellular and liver detoxification processes.
- Some of the ways in which bone broth boosts detoxification is by supplying sulfur, (especially when you add veggies, garlic and herbs to your broth) and glutathione, which is a phase II detoxification agent that lowers oxidative stress.
- Glutathione helps with elimination of fat-soluble compounds, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead.
- Bone broth also increases intake of essential minerals, which act like chelators to remove toxins by stopping heavy metals from attaching to mineral receptor sites.
- AIDS IN METABOLISM
- Amino acids found in bone broth stock have numerous metabolic roles, including building and repairing muscle tissue, supporting bone mineral density, boosting nutrient absorption, and maintaining muscle and connective tissue health.
