For thousands of years, there have been traditional foods like fermented vegetables and cultured dairy that have been touted for their health benefits.
But the one on everyone’s lips at the moment is bone broth, as Kristy Barbara co-owner of The Butcher & The Chef explains.
Bone broth is a common healing food that is now being recognized for its incredible health benefits. Why? Because bone broth benefits are numerous and extensive.
With that in mind, let me share a few ancient secrets with you on what makes bone broth benefits so remarkable.
Chicken soup isn’t just good for the soul; there’s a reason that it’s prescribed by doctors and mothers alike when you’re feeling under the weather. All bone broths — beef, chicken, fish, lamb and more — are staples in the traditional diets of every culture and the basis of all fine cuisine. That’s because bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and they boost healing.
Bone broth or stock, was a way our ancestors made use of every part of an animal. Bones and marrow, skin and feet, tendons and ligaments that you can’t eat directly can be boiled and then simmered over a period of days.
This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine that have the power to transform your health.
If you want real bone broth and real bone broth benefits, you can make it yourself at home or you can buy a jar ready to go from our favorite nutrition focused meat providore, The Butcher & The Chef. We sell reusable jars of organic, grass fed, bone broth and just the organic bones if you wanted to make your own. We can even tell you how to make it.
Bone broth is a great place to find all of the valuable amino acids, collagen, gelatin and trace minerals. In fact, there are dozens of different nutrients found within bone broth, many of which can’t be obtained easily from other commonly eaten foods. That’s partly why there are so many incredible bone broth benefits.
By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help promote healthy gut integrity while reducing permeability and inflammation. There are so many more health benefits.
Bone broth could be called ‘nature’s multivitamin’ because it is 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.
