Bone Broth: Part 2

Why is Grass-fed Bone Broth such an incredible Superfood? Because the process of boiling then simmering for days causes the release of highly absorbable nutrients including:

Collagen/Gelatin - Gelatin is produced by the breakdown of collagen in bone broth, offering a number of health benefits including:

  • Helping people with food allergies and sensitivities tolerate those foods - including milk and gluten

  • Protecting & soothing the lining of the digestive tract

  • Promoting probiotic balance & growt

  • Helping heal leaky gut syndrom

  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles & cellulite

  • Promoting healthy skin, nails & hair

  • Easily absorbable bone-building minerals that help reduce joint pain, prevent bone loss, & promote bone strength.

Amino Acids – Grass-fed bone broth is an abundant source of the “conditional” amino acids arginine, glycine, glutamine and proline, which contribute to the healing properties of grass-fed bone broth. “Conditional” amino acids mean they are nonessential but are essential under some conditions. One such condition is when your body is sick or stressed – by illness or simply from the typical unhealthy Western diet which relies heavily on low quality factory farmed animal products, processed carbohydrates, and chemicals. How do these non-essential, yet essential amino acids help? Research has found that the amino acids in bone breath offer such healing benefits as:

  • Improved digestion

  • Reduced inflammation in the respiratory system

  • Improved immune functioning

  • Improvements in allergies, arthritis, & asthma

Arginine

  • Promotes immune system functioning

  • Speeds wound healing

  • Necessary for the production and release of growth hormone

  • Promotes regeneration of damaged liver cells

  • Necessary for sperm production

Glycine

  • Prevents breakdown of protein tissue, i.e. muscle

  • Promotes detoxification of chemicals/supports liver in naturally detoxifying the body

  • Inhibitory neurotransmitter that improves sleep, relaxation, memory & performance

  • Necessary for the synthesis of glutathione & uric acid – the body’s most vital endogenous anti-oxidants, i.e. internally produced

Proline

  • Promotes regeneration of cartilage

  • Helps heal joints

  • Reduces cellulite

  • Improves skin

  • Helps repair leaky gut

Glutamine

  • Protects the lining of the gut

  • Acts as metabolic fuel for cells in the small intestine

  • Improves metabolism & muscle building

  • Reduces healing & recovery time in hospital patients as well as athletes on an intense training regimen

Chondroitin Sulphates & Glucosamine

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Reduces arthritis damage & pain

  • Decreases joint pain
