Want to know why drinking bone broth seems to have become the hottest trend of 2015? Easy, it’s all the benefits of bone broth that make some call it a “Superfood“.
The bone broth benefits aren’t new… drinking bone broth is an ancient practice made hip with the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant being huge proponents of the benefits of bone broth. Below are the top 10 bone broth benefits and why you should drink it daily for overall wellness.
Bone broth benefits #1 – Great for your joints and helps arthritis sufferers
Among the most popular benefits of bone broth is it contains chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain. Bone broth proteins deliver a benefit for rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic autoimmune disease marked by painful damage to the tendons and ligaments. Specifically, these proteins may actually help stop the autoimmune response all together.
Bone broth benefits #2 – Good for your gut
The gelatin in the bone broth (found in the knuckles, chicken feet, and other joints) helps close up holes in your intestines. This helps with chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerances. It also helps prevent Leaky Gut Syndrome. Bone broth is loaded with glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) like the very popular glucosamine products that most take for joint health… We even give our 12 year old Rottweiler bone broth to help her surgically repaired knees and hips.
Bone broth benefits #3 – Makes you look younger
Bone broth is a huge source of the collagen that is used in cosmetics that tout the ability to turn back the clock. Drinking bone broth is far cheaper than plastic surgery or “plumping” cosmetics, and it can make your skin, hair, and nails look amazing as well!
Bone broth benefits #4 – Nutrients in bone broth are easily absorbed
This is awesome! It’s one thing to consume nutrients, it’s another to absorb them directly into your cells . Nutrients in bone broth are highly bioavailable and don’t require a lot of effort to be absorbed by our cells.
Bone broth benefits #5 – Supports your immune system
Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, names bone broth the “superfood” for it’s high concentration of minerals you get from a long simmered bone broth. Bone broth is helpful when trying to boost your immune system to stave off illness… Has anyone ever had chicken soup while sick? It’s magical!
Bone broth benefits #6 – Great source of energy and can help you kick caffeine
Epicurious is calling bone broth the new coffee and I believe they are right. It not only can be consumed in place of coffee, but offers the energy boost you desire, without the shakes 🙂 I used to be an 8 shot of espresso kind of guy and have been able to ween myself off of caffeine almost entirely with the help of bone broth (I do still enjoy the occasional espresso laden drink though).
