It doesn’t matter in what form you use bone broth, may it be powder, stock or juice – it is healthy and beneficial to us in so many ways! Below I have 5 Bone Broth Benefits which are just a few of the many, many health benefits it provides to us!
1. Boosts Immunity and treats a leaky gut
This is usually the #1 reason why people start drinking/consuming bone broth. Doctors recommend about 1-5 cups of bone broth a day to get the miracle work started! Bone broth contains a lot of gelatin which are found in the bones (knuckles, feet, etc.). Your body uses this gelatin to seal up any holes in your intestines and this way treats your leaky gut syndrome! Also, the high concentration in minerals will give your immune system a boost and the amino acids will help reduce inflammation.
2. Better Sleep
There is a relaxation mineral found in bone broth: Magnesium. According to kettleandfire: ‘Magnesium is required for over 300 enzymatic processes in the body. Some of its major functions include synthesizing proteins, transmitting nerve signals, and relaxing the muscles. All of these functions can help improve sleep latency and quality.’ Read up on their article to have a thorough explanation on the whole process!
3. Improves Joint Health
Bone Broth turns out to contain glucasamine. Glucosamine is probably known to you in supplements. These supplements are usually used for people with joint pain. On top of the glucosamine, bone broth has many other health and nutritional benefits to help reduce pain. An example would be chondroitin, which slows the growth of osteoporosis.
4. Get over Food Allergies and Intolerances
It’s said that the anti-inflammatory in bone broth will eventually get rid of your food allergy and boost your immune system. Also, the gelatin is vital to healing your stomach.
5. Look Younger
Shape.com states that: ‘Bone broth is a rich source of collagen, which is also naturally occurring in the body as a joint protector and stabilizer. Experts are torn on whether the skin-firming, joint-strengthening benefits of ingesting collagen are there, but studies have shown an improvement in skin’s elasticity and fine lines from collagen supplements.’
