Benefits of Bone Broth
With its sudden rise in popularity, there has been a nonstop buzz all about the miracle health benefits of bone broth. While there is plenty of evidence to suggest these benefits to be true, there is no published research confirming this to be true or false. However, I do believe its coming. The experiences that people have while using bone broth, is enough to make anyone a believer.
- Vitamins and minerals. This will vary depending on the type of animal source you use, but for this broth recipe, you’ll find loads of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, Vitamin A, K2, and minerals like zinc, iron, boron, manganese, and selenium.
- Glucosamine and chondroitin. Natural compounds found in connective tissue which supports joint health.
- Collagen. And lots of it. This turns into gelatin that, when cooked, yields several important amino acids.
- Helps maintain digestive health. Bone broth is not only easy to digest, but it may also help in the digestion of other food. Gelatin binds to the water in your digestive tract, helping food move through your gut easier. It is also believed to help with a condition called “leaky gut” or other inflammatory bowel diseases.
- Gut Health. Since bone broth contains collagen it is what helps to repair the gut lining. When you heal the gut, you can heal inflammation and many other ailments as well.
- Suggested to help fight inflammation. The amino acids glycine and arginine have strong anti-inflammatory effects. Chronic inflammation may lead to a number of serious diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, and types of cancer.
- May improve joint health.
Bone Broth and Intermittent Fasting
On August 1st 2019 I was inspired to put on an Intermittent Fasting Challenge. I was at this point where I was doing IF on my own for 6 months at 12 hours a day (8pm to 8am fast). I knew it was time for me to do a 16 hours fast in a day, but I felt like I needed a support system. This was when I reached out to my community and asked if they wanted to participate. And they did!!! Over a hundred people signed up in 1 week and everyone chose how many hours they wanted to to fast each day, and we all did it safely together.
Every Tuesday and Friday I made live videos to help educate the community on how to do Intermittent Fasting most helpfully, and receive the results they were doing it for.
Part of that education was on Bone Broth and how it is helpful to break our fast with (especially with apple cider vinegar).
Bone broth is also fantastic to use as the base to soups, rice dishes and to add to pasta’s!! I love making bone brother with every roasted chicken I make, or buy!
