Benefits of Broth
Broth aids in creating a healthy gut microbiome (which means a healthy digestive system). Glutamine, an essential amino acid in broth, regulates how gut bacteria is used and digests food.
Broth has the ability to heal and seal the gut lining and reduce over growth of harmful microbes that can disrupt a healthy gut balance.
Bone and Joint Health
Bone broth reduces arthritis, joint pain, bone disease and inflammation. Raw essential minerals like calcium, phosphorus and amino acids are extracted from bones when simmered and are the building blocks for healthy bone structure.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAG's), collagen and gelatin, the jell like substances formed when broth is cooled, are responsible for healthy joint lubrication.
Collagen, keratin and GAG's are extracted from the skin and joints of bones in the simmering process. Collagen especially, improves skin elasticity and cellular structure along with hair and nails.
Broth is full of vitamins and minerals that protect against harmful toxins. This helps reset the alkaline balance of the body. Drinking bone broth for 24 hours is a great way to detoxify your body and give your digestive system a chance to repair.
