Why You Should Use Bone Broth Instead of Other Stocks
Bone broth is incredibly nutritious and promotes optimal health as it contains a high amount of antioxidants, vitamins, and many minerals, including calcium, silicon, sulfer, magnesium, glucosamine, phosphorus, and chondroitin sulfates. It also contains gelatin which is extremely healing. Gelatin is a protein substance which is present in the tendons, ligaments, and tissues of mammals. Gelatin has been a known remedy for many different digestive and gut related conditions. Gelatin contains the amino acid glycine, which is needed to complete the detoxification process and to assist the liver to function optimally.
Bone broth has been shown to be beneficial in helping those with leaky gut and auto-immune diseases. It has also been found to reduce inflammation, to aid in attaining optimal levels of nutrients, help with issues of bacterial overgrowth, and boost the immune system. Glycine aids in digestive functions and helps regulate the synthesis of bile salts and secretion of gastric acid. Proline, another very beneficial amino acid has a very important role in reversing atherosclerotic deposits.
