Since before the dawn of human civilization, bone broth, or stock as it is commonly known, has played a pivotal role in human development and health. As human culture advanced, bones were cooked in water to make stock which was consumed on its own or used as a base for soups, sauces, and stews.
Bone broths supply natural, unadulterated gelatin to the diet which supports many tissues of the body including cartilage, bones, and joints but also supports the skin, digestive tract, and muscles including the heart.
Bone broth boosts immunity. The amino acids in bone broth, like arginine, glutamine, and cysteine, have been shown to boost immunity in humans and animals.
Bone broth fights inflammation. Studies show that many of the amino acids in bone broth, such as cystine, histidine, and glycine reduce inflammation, and L-glutamine specifically reduces gut inflammation.
Bone broth helps strengthen bones and teeth. A study on the necessary nutrients for bone health found that the process of bone formation requires “an adequate and constant supply of nutrients as follows, calcium, protein, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, manganese, copper, boron, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, and the B vitamins. Bone broth supplies many of these vital nutrients.
Bone broth improves hydration. Bone broth adds electrolytes (minerals) to the diet. Studies have shown that drinking broth can rehydrate better than water alone due to the electrolytes.
Bone broth helps build muscles. The amino acids in bone broth can help stimulate muscle protein synthesis. Muscle protein synthesis is essential for the ongoing growth, repair, and maintenance of skeletal muscle groups.
Bone broth improves moods. Your diet influences your gut bacteria, and your gut bacteria influences your brain. According to neuroscientists, your gut bacteria are constantly speaking to your brain. The makeup of the gut bacteria, called your microbiome, influences how the brain is wire from infancy to adulthood, along with moods, memory, the ability to learn, and how to deal with stress.
With all these benefits of quality bone broth such as Best of the Bone, why wouldn’t you sip a cup a day?
