Bone Broth is considered to be one of the most ancient food sources on the planet and an exceptional source of nutrition. Made from simmered animal bones, it is an elixir that not only tastes great but provides numerous nutrients and beneficial compounds.
For thousands of years, bone broths have been a staple of traditional diets all over the world. Bone broth is a mineral-rich infusion made by boiling animal bones with vegetables, herbs. and spices. Many societies around the world still consume bone broth regularly in their diets, and it has become increasingly popular again with an interest in gut health, and a turn towards ancestral traditions.
Bone broth is highly nutrient-rich. Animal bones are rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and other trace minerals which are needed to build and strengthen our own bones. It also has a high collagen content which helps to support our connective tissues, hair, skin, nails, gut and so much more. Bone broth has a rich history of being used as a digestive tonic, especially in traditional cultures as far back as 2,500 years ago. Today, it’s one of the top recommended foods for supporting digestive health.
Collagen – The most abundant protein in your body, and is found in our skin as well as connective tissues like joints, and tendons; it holds together bones and muscles, and maintains the lining of the gut. Bone broth provides collagen as well as naturally containing the co-factors that help maintain collagen in the body.
Glycine – The most abundant amino acid found in collagen, and is considered to be one of the most important amino acids for overall health. It acts as a neurotransmitter and is important for many functions within the body including sleep, metabolic function, liver function and cardiovascular health.
Hyaluronic acid – Found in high quantities in the skin and connective tissues, but with ageing, our natural production of it slows down. Hyaluronic acid helps the body to retain moisture, helping skin to look hydrated and healthy. It also lubricates the joints to support mobility, as well as supporting bone health.
Gelatine -For generations, gelatine was a prominent feature in human diets. Gelatine is rich in anti-inflammatory amino acids that help to balance the diet and are needed for skin, hair and nails support, joint health, immune function, detoxification, metabolic health and so much more.
Joint support – As we age and collagen production declines, our joints can become stiff and painful affecting our mobility. The high amount of anti-inflammatory amino acids in Bone Broth alongside hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin, calcium and magnesium are essential for the formation and repair of connective tissues, and vital for joint health.
Gut support – Our intestinal lining is implicated in many inflammatory conditions so it’s important to provide the body with nutrients that can support the health of the gut. Bone broths are always recommended as part of a gut support protocol as they provide a rich source of nourishment, as well as anti-inflammatory amino acids like glutamine to soothe the gut lining, supporting the structure of the gut and its overall function.
Skin health – Bone Broth is rich in collagen which gives skin its strength and elasticity and is vital for its structure. It supports our skin cells to renew and repair themselves and has a firming effect. Collagen and hyaluronic acid which is also found in bone broth are vital for keeping skin hydrated and healthy.
