Bone broth has incredible health benefits that support the gut membrane, the joints, the immune system, hair and skin. The key nutrients in the broth are not easy to get from other food sources and they include collagen, gelatin, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, glycosamino glycans, proline, glycine, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. These nutrients are considered beauty foods because they help the body with proper structural alignment and beautiful skin and hair.
Bone broth provides the nutritional synergy to calm an overactive immune system while supplying the body with raw materials to rebuild stronger and healthier cells. This is why it is such a great healing food to have when the body is encountering stress from bacterial or viral infections as well as digestive disorders and leaky gut syndrome.
You can find pasture-raised chicken from a local farmer or you can order the bones from US Wellness Meats. Pasture-raised chicken are chickens that were raised on natural grass eating insects and weeds without any grain-feeds. This concentrates essential fats and anti-oxidants into the bones and tissues of the animal.
This is great to drink each day, to use on other dishes or to make for a stew.
Bone broth from organically raised animals is loaded with bone and immune supportive nutrients. Bone broth is loaded with bone marrow where the red and white blood cells that form our blood and immune system are originally formed. It is also rich in collagen peptides which help to improve the integrity of our gut lining, skin and joints.
Bone broth is also rich in conjugated linoleic acid, also called CLA. CLA helps to reduce inflammation and stimulate fat burning. It has also been shown to be a powerful immune stimulating agent that reduces cancer growth in the body.
Ideally you will get pasture-raised chicken bones or grass-fed beef bones as that is the highest quality.
