Six Amazing Benefits, One Superfood


Superfood bone broth

For thousands of years, traditional foods such as fermented vegetables and cultured dairy have been touted for their health benefits.

But one ancient superfood has swept across the nation in recent months.

The Today Show, New York Times, Huffington Post and dozens of other big-name media outlets have called it one of today’s hottest health trends.

Some experts are even calling it “a modern health marvel.”

Why? Because bone broth benefits are numerous and extensive.

With that in mind, let me share a few ancient secrets with you on what makes bone broth benefits so remarkable.

Why Does Bone Broth Work?

I have found bone broth to be the No. 1 thing you can consume to:

  • Support a healthy gut
  • Promote joint health and comfort
  • Support healthy skin, hair and nails
  • Encourage a healthy immune system
  • And so much more

Turns out chicken soup isn’t just good for the soul! And your grandma really did have the secret weapon when she served up chicken noodle soup when you weren’t feeling well.

All bone broths — beef, chicken, fish, lamb and more — are staples in the traditional diets of every culture, and are the basis of fine cuisine. That’s because bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy-to-digest, rich in flavor and brimming with health benefits.

Bone broth or stock was a way our ancestors made use of every part of an animal. Bones and marrow, skin and feet, tendons and ligaments (that you can’t eat directly) can be boiled and then simmered over a period of days.

The long cooking process allows easier digestibility and assimilation of all these key nutrients:

  • The protein-rich collagen
  • Glucosamine
  • Chondroitin sulfate
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Amino acids
  • Key minerals
  • And many other beneficial compounds found in bone broth

These vital nutrients and beneficial compounds provide profound health benefits.

Of course, a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are critical. But bone broth is something we should all consider adding back into our diet for these benefits — benefits that you can’t get from almost any other food.

By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help promote a healthy gut and more. Here are the six major bone broth benefits.

The 6 Powerful Benefits of Bone Broth

1. Supports Healthy Joints

Bone broth is one of world’s best sources of natural collagen in the world. As we age, our joints naturally experience wear and tear, and we become less flexible.

Why does that matter? Well there’s a reason we’re less flexible: the cartilage diminishes. In other words, we can experience age-related or wear-and-tear effects on joint cartilage and, as a result, experience discomfort. As bone broth simmers, collagen from the animal parts leaches into the broth and becomes readily absorbable to help support healthy cartilage.

One of the most valuable components of bone broth is gelatin, which supports healthy cartilage. Cartilage, of course, acts like a soft cushion between bones that helps them “glide” without friction. Gelatin also provides building blocks that are needed to form and maintain strong bones.

2. Good for the Gut

Studies show that gelatin is great for supporting gut health and fighting food sensitivities (such as to wheat or dairy). But it can also help with the growth of probiotics (good bacteria) in the gut.

Bone broth is easily digested and soothing to the digestive system, unlike many other foods that can be difficult to fully break down. After all, a food is really only useful if we have the means of absorbing its nutrients.

Because the amino acids in collagen support healthy tissues in the colon and entire GI tract, collagen can support healthy digestive function.

3. Maintains Healthy Skin

Collagen helps form elastin and other compounds within skin. Many of the compounds it influences are responsible for maintaining skin’s youthful tone, texture and appearance.

That’s one of the reasons why collagen is used by many celebrities and stars to reduce the visible signs of wrinkles, decreasing puffiness and fighting various other signs of aging. Many people believe they see a decrease in “cottage cheese-looking skin” in certain areas of the body when consuming foods containing collagen.

4. Supports Immune System Function

Bone broth is also known for its gut-supportive and immune-supporting benefits.

For instance, having a ”leaky gut” occurs when undigested particles from foods seep through tiny openings in the weakened intestinal lining and enter the bloodstream. From there, the immune system detects them and becomes hyperactive. This can lead to a whole host of immune challenges.

In short, bone broth is a superstar when it comes to sealing up a “leaky gut” and for support of overall digestive and immune health.

5. Boosts Detoxification

In the Western world, toxins are the norm. But just because it’s the norm doesn’t mean you have to accept it.

Thankfully, your body has powerful ways that it can detoxify itself from toxic exposures. But when toxicity is too high, your body often isn’t able to keep up.

Bone broth is considered a powerful detoxification agent. In fact, I believe it’s the No. 1 cleansing food of all time. Why? It helps the digestive system expel waste, promotes the liver’s ability to remove toxins, helps maintain tissue integrity and improves the body’s use of antioxidants.

Some of the ways in which bone broth boosts detoxification is by supplying sulfur (especially when you add vegetables, garlic and herbs to your broth) and glutathione, which is a phase II detoxification agent that lowers oxidative stress.

6. Supports a Healthy Metabolism

In addition to super-healthy collagen, bone broth also provides bone broth co-factors such as glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid and key electrolyte minerals to help naturally support the body, including muscles, bones, joints, connective tissue, immune system, digestion, detoxification, your metabolism and weight plus much more!

That’s a brief overview of some of the benefits. Now, let’s look at how to get more of it in your diet.
