Tell us a little about the health benefits.
There are a few nutrients in bone broth that give it its unique health properties: the protein collagen, and the amino acids, glycine and proline. These nutrients are particularly helpful in restoring and maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal lining. There have been recent studies published by leading health experts, who have found correlations between a damaged gut lining (commonly referred as leaky gut) and a myriad of issues from digestive disorders, to allergies and other auto-immune diseases, and even psychological imbalances. Bone broth is also rich in other essential minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, and calcium. A special thing about it is that it enhances nutrient absorption, so when you consume bone broth regularly, it supports your body by readily utilizing the nutrients from other food that you eat. In my experience, it has been a great support for my joints, especially during the cold months, as well as helping to heal my skin allergies. [Photo via Facebook]
