Top 5 Health Benefits of Bone Broth

Some serve it as a regular part of their family meals, others prepare multiple batches from the same bones – broth is a beloved food, remedy, and an old tradition in many cultures that know how to tend for their wellbeing. The beauty of this delicious beverage is that it is brimming with health perks!

From boosting your immune system thanks to so many vitamins and minerals seeping from the bones and connective tissue, all the way to healing your gut, broth can be a wonderful addition to your diet. Here’s what you can expect your daily dose of broth to do for your health.

Fight chronic inflammation

Bone broth is packed with amino acids, some of which have gut-healing properties, helping you battle chronic inflammation and different inflammatory gut diseases that come with it. For example, glutamine is present in bone broth, and consuming it helps fight leaky gut syndrome.

These anti-inflammatory amino acids can help protect your gut long term, if you consume bone broth regularly. In one fell swoop, bone broth helps you defeat one major underlying cause of so many different chronic diseases!

Keep your bones and joints strong

Combine the high calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, collagen, and glucosamine content in bone broth, and you have the perfect potion for keeping your bones, ligaments, and your joints strong and sturdy. In protecting your bones and connective tissue through better nutrition, you also decrease your risk of developing diseases such as osteoarthritis.

Improve your collagen intake

In addition to helping you keep your bones strong and connective tissue resilient, collagen is a crucial component of bone broth that contributes to other aspects of your wellness. It rejuvenates your skin, it helps prevent premature ageing, and it protects your heart and your gut.

In case you’re struggling with consuming enough bone broth to boost your collagen intake through food, you can introduce reinforcements such as CollaGen and combine with occasional broth consumption for best results.

Boost your protein intake

In case you don’t rely on meat and dairy for your protein intake, bone broth can be the perfect solution for upping your protein intake. The healthy amino acids found in bones and connective tissue can help you get enough protein in your daily meals without turning to meat or dairy.

More healthy protein in your diet will help you balance your energy levels, help you manage your bodyweight (and even lose weight if that’s your goal), and reduce unhealthy cravings.

Leverage broth’s wonderful nutrient content

We’ve already listed some impressive nutrients found in bone broth. Add to those, broth contains selenium, vitamin K, vitamin A, zinc, iron, and manganese, among vitamins and minerals essential for your immune system and wellbeing.

This kind of nutrient density can help you create a balanced eating regime that wards off unnecessary inflammation as well as chronic health troubles. Less stress on your body means that you can focus on improving the quality of your life and start making other healthy decisions with ease.

 

Bone broth is a simple, yet delicious way to enrich your dietary habits and support your health goals. If you’re dealing with a chronic health condition, however, merely altering one item on your menu won’t be enough to help you heal. Set up an appointment with our functional medicine experts, and you can count on a tailor-made plan adapted to your needs.

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
