Full of powerhouse nutrients, like amino acids and a big dose of protein, bone broth is a great addition to your diet. So, dudes: ditch your chalky protein powder and find out why men should be drinking bone broth every day.
What Is Bone Broth?
Osso Good Bone Broth is a far cry from the packaged stock hiding in the back of your pantry. Bone broth is generally made from slowly simmering animal bones, meat, and vegetables to extract gelatin and nutritious compounds — earning it a superfood status. And really, what’s manlier than drinking something made from all the meat and bones our ancestors used to hunt and then boil over a fire? Certainly not a powder found in a tub. And Osso Good Bone Broth fits into your healthy lifestyle: It’s Whole30 and Paleo-friendly, with only pasture-raised, organic ingredients that are free of antibiotics, gluten, dairy, hormones, and mystery flavors.
How Does It Help Men?
Bone broth is full of nutrients that work together to help you build stronger muscles, reduce the loss of cartilage from overuse, and repair the body’s defense mechanisms. Bone broth is a natural source of proline and glycine, amino acids that aren’t readily available in other meat sources. These amino acids aid in tissue repair and the maintenance of lean muscle fibers, which help you recover after a heavy workout (or, realistically, even just mowing the lawn).
Is It Better Than Protein Powder?
Yes! Bone broth is bursting with collagen, the most abundant protein in the body and the glue that holds everything together. Collagen creates and maintains all of our connective tissue, strengthening tendons and ligaments to support healthy, functional movement. While the nutrition label might look similar to your favorite powder, the nutrients in Osso Good Bone Broth come directly from whole foods (meat, bones, and vegetables), providing naturally occurring calcium, magnesium, potassium, and other minerals that replenish electrolytes and support optimum cell function. There are no questionable fillers, hidden sugars, or artificial colors. And if you think you need caffeine to keep your energy up, trust us — bone broth is better. The amino acid profile, thanks to glycine, boosts your nervous system function without the dreaded spike and slump that coffee or straight caffeine can bring.
You don’t have time to mix 20 different powders and pills — bone broth is a one-stop shop for everything you need to fuel the heaviest workouts, help you recover from muscle fatigue, boost your immunity to combat those pesky colds, and keep your body running efficiently and effectively. Bone broth does it all in an easily digestible, delicious, and, dare we say, manly drink! Try it in these easy recipes and feel the benefits today.
