Benefits of Bone Broth

Bone broth is one of the hottest “new” trends as a super food among nutrition experts today. It could likely earn the title as the most healing food you can consume. But those of us who have been making and using bone broth for decades know that this age-old food has been a part of traditional cultures for centuries and for good reason.

Nutrients

Bone broth is rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains healing compounds such as collagen, glutamine, glycine, proline, arginine and chondroitin sulphates to name a few.

Those who suffer from digestive disorders such as leaky gut or intestinal inflammation can highly benefit from consuming bone broth. In addition, bone broth has properties that help alleviate inflammation, whether it be “in the gut” or “in the joints”. Plus, the mineral-rich broth is a wonderfully easily assimilated way to get the minerals needed for healthy teeth, bones, skin, hair and nails.

The glycine in bone broth has properties to help detoxify cells from chemicals and may even improve brain function.
