The Healing Power of Bone Broth

The Healing Power of Bone Broth

Bouillon, broth, clear soupBroths made from bones have been used though out history to provide nourishment and sustenance, but also for medicinal and health benefits.  Slow cooking bones allows for the release of valuable minerals into the water in a form that the body can easily absorb.  Minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and many trace minerals are not only essential to strong bones, but also help to nourish our gut, liver, kidneys, muscles, joints, heart, brain, nerves, hair, skin and nails.

Bone broths contain nutrients that help sooth and heal your gut and promote healthy digestion.  The chondroitin sulphates, glucosamine and other compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage helps to reduce joint pain and inflammation.  The amino acids glycine, proline and arginine from the bones all have anti-inflammatory effects through out the body.  Glycine and proline are essential for healing microscopic wounds which is important for individuals with chronic inflammation or auto-immune conditions.  The collagen and gelatin in bone broth supports healthy hair and helps to keep your nails strong.  Lastly, bone broth stimulates the immune system.  A study published years ago found that chicken soup had significant effect on mitigating infection.
