If you've ever wanted a super food that can help heal the gut, improve digestion, promote joint health, and enhance your skin, look no further than bone broth.
These benefits are becoming my more widely known and accepted as bone broth also becomes more and more popular.
There are good reasons for all this, bone broth is not just a fad or a trend. In fact, it's been around for thousands of years!
So, why should you consume Bone broth?
Here's a quick overview of the many benefits bone broth has to offer:
Bone broth contains tons of collagen, the protein that makes up bones, tendons, ligaments and other flexible tissues. Collagen works amazingly well when it comes to improving joint health.
Bone broth also contains other proteins like gelatin, proline and glycine and lots of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), including glucosamine, that are commonly taken as supplements to reduce joint pain and inflammation. Bone broth helps you get this good stuff without supplements.
The glycine and glutamine – both amino acids found in large quantities in bone broth – help maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall, preventing leaky gut. The collagen found in bone broth helps improve digestion by ensuring that the stomach lining is healthy.
In the same way that bones are comprised of proteins, so is your skin. Skin loses elasticity and hair becomes brittle when nutrient deficient. One of the single best ways to restore luster to skin and hair is to consume collagen. Consuming collagen-rich bone broth can increase connective tissue, reduce cellulite and tighten your skin.
The glycine found in bone broth supports the liver in one of its primary duties: to collect, compound, and orchestrate removal from the body. Glycine also helps the body to reduce oxidative stress by producing antioxidants.
You might be thinking: “Yeah, bone broth is great, but I don't have time to make it!”
Well, you're in luck.
While I will not encourage you to go to your local grocery store and buy broth (much of it is full of preservatives, and many even contain sugar!), I will share a wonderful shelf-stable broth that's made with only the best ingredients: Kettle & Fire.
Kettle & Fire makes Beef and Chicken Broth, I prefer the chicken, because that's always my favorite, but the beef is great too.
Why I like Kettle & Fire Broth:
- The bones come from all organic chicken and 100% grass fed cattle
- Has extremely high amounts of collagen, glycine and amino acids which improve digestion
- Uses a slow-simmer time to extract insane amount of protein (10g for chicken)
- Fresh, never-frozen bone broth.
- The only company that has a fresh bone broth that won’t go bad, doesn’t require freezing and doesn’t ship with harmful styrofoam containers and dry ice.
Kettle & Fire package their broth while it’s hot (so no germs can get in), and in what’s known as an “aseptic” vacuum environment so there are zero pathogens in the box or in the packaging area. This means no spoilage and a 2-year shelf life with no added preservatives or additives!
Isn't that fantastic?
