The process of slowly simmering bones for up to a period of 24 hours causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds such as collagen, essential amino acids such as, proline, glycine, and glutamine that have the power to transform your health, heal and calm. Further, the minerals and the marrow helps build blood cells, which is the healing mechanism in the body. When vegetables are added to the broth, they release dense nutrients, antibiotic and antiviral properties to the liquid.
Collagen – The collagen and gelatin in bone broth supports hair growth, skin regeneration and assists in keeping your nails strong.
Glutamine – A natural remedy for leaky gut syndrome.
Glycine – Supports digestion and the secretion of gastric acids. As well, glycine naturally detoxifies the body.
Proline – Supports good skin health.
Gelatin – Supports digestive health, protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and assists the digestion of nutrients. This really helps those with leaky gut syndrome.
Bone Marrow – Nutritionally dense and boosts the immune system.
Minerals – Bones from land animals are rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, and fish bones also contain iodine. These minerals are essential in helping our bones grow and repair themselves.
Dozens of scientific studies back the attention that bone broth is receiving. Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, a nutrition scientist, certified clinical nutritionist, and co-author of Nourishing Broths says, “We have science that supports the use of cartilage, gelatin, and other components found in homemade bone broth to prevent and sometimes even reverse osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, digestive distress, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer.”
