Bone broth is incredibly healthy for many different aspects of your body. By boiling down the bones, skin, cartilage, tendons and ligaments of an animal you create a gelatin-rich liquid that provides all of the necessary amino acids needed to make collagen, which is the building blocks of our bone. Bone broth provides many vitamins and enzymes which help keep the body strong and fortified.
Bone Broth Benefits
Bone broth is also great for easing acid reflux. Unlike Tums, which can actually make the problem worse, bone broths aid in digestion and provide your body the minerals it needs to function properly, including producing enough stomach acid.
Furthermore, there is evidence that certain types of bone broth, such as that made from the bones of chickens, can help bolster the immune system. According to a study published by the medical journal Chest in 2000 “chicken soup may contain a number of substances with beneficial medicinal activity.” Researchers found that people who consumed chicken bone broth experienced a reduction in inflammation that helped reduce symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection.
Another use of bone broth is as a recovery drink for sports and other physically demanding activities. Many experts and dietitians believe that bone broth can effectively replace electrolytes after intense exercise, which aids in post-workout recovery.
