Bone broth is full of Collagen/gelatin
High quality bone broth is one of the most beneficial, nutrient dense foods to consume in order to restore gut health and therefore support immune system function and healthy inflammation response. Collagen/gelatin and the amino acids proline, glutamine and arginine help to heal and seal openings in the gut lining and support gut integrity.
is the animal protein found in connective tissue. It’s abundant in bone, marrow, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. The breakdown of collagen in bone broths is what produces Gelatin.
Healing Amino Acids
The gelatin also contains "conditional" amino acids arginine, glycine, glutamine and proline. These amino acids also contribute to bone broth's healing properties.
Conditional amino acids are nonessential amino acids that are essential under some conditions. They aren't produced very well when you are ill or stressed out. Unhealthy Western diets, heavy in processed carbohydrates, low in quality grass-fed animal products, and lacking of homemade soups and broths, make it likely that these amino acids are chronically essential.
Among the most popular benefits of bone broth is it contains chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain. Bone broth proteins deliver a benefit for rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic autoimmune disease marked by painful damage to the tendons and ligaments. Specifically, these proteins may actually help stop the autoimmune response all together.
The gelatin in the bone broth (found in the knuckles, chicken feet, and other joints) helps close up holes in your intestines. This helps with chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerances. It also helps prevent Leaky Gut Syndrome. Bone broth is loaded with glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) like the very popular glucosamine products that most take for joint health... We even give our 12 year old Rottweiler bone broth to help her surgically repaired knees and hips.
Bone broth is a huge source of the collagen that is used in cosmetics that tout the ability to turn back the clock. Drinking bone broth is far cheaper than plastic surgery or "plumping" cosmetics, and it can make your skin, hair, and nails look amazing as well.
This is awesome! It’s one thing to consume nutrients, it's another to absorb them directly into your cells . Nutrients in bone broth are highly bioavailable and don't require a lot of effort to be absorbed by our cells.
Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, names bone broth the “superfood” for it's high concentration of minerals you get from a long simmered bone broth. Bone broth is helpful when trying to boost your immune system to stave off illness... Has anyone ever had chicken soup while sick? It's magical!
It not only can be consumed in place of coffee, but offers the energy boost you desire, without the shakes :) I used to be an 8 shot of espresso kind of guy and have been able to ween myself off of caffeine almost entirely with the help of bone broth (I do still enjoy the occasional espresso laden drink though).
The glycine in bone broth has been shown to help people sleep better and improve your memory... who doesn't need that!
Osso Good bone broth contains high amounts of phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and other nutrients that play an essential role in healthy bone formation.
Bone broth is an amazing way to get a wide variety of nutrients, rather than taking tons of supplements. Cooking bone broth low and slow (low heat over a period of 24-36 hours) preserves the nutrients better than the high heat extraction used to make most supplements you'll find in stores.
