8 Reasons Why You Need To Get On The Bone Broth Diet (Vegans Too!)
What's Bone Broth Made From?
The popularity of bone broth is literally exploding right now. You could say it’s sizzling hot ;). All over the internet, we can see it being touted as the next best thing. It’s compared to Botox in terms of its anti-aging effects; celebrated as an exceptionally efficient cellulite reducer, and praised for its arthritis-soothing and digestive tract-healing properties. People have even started drinking it instead of coffee.
There’s a good reason that warm chicken soup has been known for ages as a cold fighter and health promoter. Our ancestors were on to something!
The recipe for bone broth is in accordance with the KSS protocol (“keep it stupid simple”). You take some bones. Cook them slowly. And add some veggies on top. Chicken bones, beef bones, onions, carrots, parsley, celery, potato, and tomato… That’s all you need for your bowl of gut-healing, immunity-boosting bone broth. Just simmer those ingredients in water for an hour or two, and there you have it: your amazing health-promoting concoction is done.
The only problem is that some people don't have the time to prepare it. When you consider the amount of time it takes to get the ingredients, make sure they are organic and really healthy for you, and cook and simmer, it makes sense. Turns out, despite the recipe’s simplicity, it becomes too complicated for a lot of people to include bone broth in their diet. That's why we are here- we are your source of bone broth!
Slowly Simmered To Perfection
Our bone broth recipe involves simmering the bones in hot water with just a spoonful of vinegar. Vinegar helps release nutrients from the marrow within the bones, as well as dissolve other tissues in the water. The result is a nutritious and amazing-tasting, addictive broth.
Bone broth is simple to make. However, the nutritional value will vary depending on the bones used, how long they are cooked for and what additions are included. That’s why we pay special attention to where we get our ingredients.
For the best results, we select high-quality joint bones such as knuckles and feet. Cooking it slowly and with an acidic ingredient enhances nutrient extraction. Vegetables, grains, and secret herb blends are added to the mix during the last hour of cooking, creating our signature flavor punch.
All the different, delicious shades of bone broth.
The Science Behind Bone Broth
There is currently a major lack of direct research on bone broth. We need more research! All studies done so far are pointing to a fact that bone broth is beneficial for human health, with literally none of the adverse effects of many other supplements we use. Bone broth contains crucial nutrients, especially minerals. This makes bone broth a beneficial dietary supplement for many people, a true superfood.
Bone broth checks all the boxes: it is gluten-free, dairy-free, and fits the paleo diet, too!
The Health Benefits Of Bone Broth
Bone broth packs some serious nutrition, with a decent amount of complete protein and collagen, which is linked to everything from reduced joint pain and stronger hair and nails, to improved gut health. Let’s go over the biggest benefits of bone broth.
1. Anti-Aging Properties
Bone broth is a precursor to collagen, a structural protein found in skin, cartilage, and bone. When boiled, the collagen in connective tissue is broken down into gelatin and various other essential amino acids, namely glycine and glutamine. These amino acids then promote our body's natural production of collagen, rejuvenating our skin and joints.
Consuming bone broth has been scientifically proven to increase plasma levels of amino acids glycine and proline that are required to form collagen.
2. Relieves Muscle & Joint Pain
Studies show that increasing collagen levels by eating bone broth is effective at reducing pain and stiffness as well as improving joint function in patients affected by osteoarthritis.
3. Reduces Brain Fog and Increases Productivity
Increasing focus and productivity levels can be a safe, healthy process. There’s no need for risky, often toxic pharmaceuticals. Brain fog and fatigue are usually good indicators that your body is in distress. Bone broth can help with that.
4. Induces Sleep & Acts As A Sleeping Aid
The amino acid glycine present in bone broth has multiple functions in the body including supporting healthy sleep patterns. Research shows dietary glycine has proved effective at improving the sleep quality of patients with insomnia. It is thought that glycine exerts its effect by regulating our internal body clock and lowering our body temperature to prepare us for sleep.
5. Improves Your Digestion And Gut Health
Gelatin is the number one abundant protein in bone broth. Once ingested, gelatin links with molecules of water to help the healthy movement of food on its way through the bowels. This means bone broth is effective in battling acid reflux, too!
Studies done on animals show us that gelatin, together with other amino acids found in bone broth, has therapeutic potential in suppressing inflammatory bowel disease.
6. Boosts Your Immunity
The small intestine is the number one place our body absorbs nutrients from the food we eat, but it is also the first line of defense against bacterial attacks on our body. Hence, a damaged gut barrier would disrupt immune function. The amino acids found in bone broth renew this protective layer within our intestines.
7. Gives Your Skin That Natural Glow
Our bodies naturally produce collagen throughout our whole life. But around the age of 25, our collagen production significantly drops. At this time, the human body starts using more collagen than it can make. This is when fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin start showing. Bone broth has a lot of collagen, which helps our skin preserve its youthful appearance.
8. Helps With Weight Loss
Bone broth is rich in animal protein, but its caloric value is low. This means it can help you build lean body mass.
