Bone broth could be called “nature’s multivitamin.” How so exactly?
It’s packed with:
· Over 19 easy-to-absorb, essential and non-essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins)
· Collagen/gelatin, which help form connective tissue
· Nutrients that support digestive functions, immunity and brain health
Did you get that? Bone broth benefits literally every part of your body, from your gut to your brain, from your muscles to your ligaments.
It’s also relatively low in calories yet very high in minerals and other chemical compounds that many people are lacking. There’s no doubt that bone broth makes a great everyday addition to your diet.
Here are six of the key nutritional compounds found in bone broth that help provide all these wonderful bone broth benefits.
1. Glycosaminoglycans (GAG)
Glycosaminoglycans have the primary role of maintaining and supporting collagen and elastin that take up the spaces between bones and various fibers.
An easy and relatively inexpensive way to obtain glucosamine naturally is from drinking more bone broth, which helps support the loss of cartilage health, acting as an alternative to pricey glucosamine supplements.
3. Hyaluronic Acid
It offers support for multiple skin types and promotes healthy aging, cell rejuvenation and skin firmness.
4. Chondroitin Sulfate
Studies have found that supplementing with chondroitin supports healthy inflammation response as well as cardiovascular health, bone health, skin health and healthy cholesterol levels.
5. Minerals and Electrolytes
Electrolytes found within bone broth include calcium, magnesium and potassium (not to mention many other minerals, such as phosphorus), which are important for supporting healthy circulation, bone density, nerve signaling functions, heart health and digestive health.
Collagen is the main structural protein found within the human body that helps form connective tissue and “seals” the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract. It’s also the gel-like, smooth structure that covers and holds our bones together, allowing us to glide and move freely.
*Note - Irritation within the gut that impairs normal digestive functions and causes permeability, allowing particles to pass into the bloodstream, known as leaky gut.
To reach optimum health we must be in balance and working in sync (blood sugar, hormones, nutrients) this starts in our "GUT" digestive system. Try bone broth alone (1 cup/day), add to your soup recipes, use as your liquid when making grains, or try making your own at home. Contact me for tips to get you started.
