Bone broth has received some much-deserved attention over the last few years. And, while it was common practice for our grandparent’s generation to make homemade broth, it’s something that many of us are just starting to come back around to.
In this post, I’m talking all about why bone broth is superfood-worthy and three ways you can reap all the benefits it brings to the table.
3 Bone Broth Benefits to Rave About
#1 Bone Broth May Support the Gut Lining
One of the most talked-about benefits of bone broth has to do with gut health. It’s been shown to help support the gut lining and the intestinal wall, and it might be beneficial for those with leaky gut.
Another impressive gut-supporting benefit has to do with glycine, an amino acid found in bone broth. One study also found that glycine helps protect the gut mucosa from chemically as well as stress-induced ulcers.
#2 It May Improve Joint Health
Another reason bone broth has had its shining moment over the last few years has to do with joint health. The broth is rich in gelatin, which is an important amino acid for supporting the health of our joints. Bone broth is also rich in glycine and proline, both of which are necessary for building connective tissue.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, sipping on bone broth regularly may even help reduce some of the symptoms associated with arthritis.
#3 This Nutrient-dense Beverage May Fight Inflammation
Reducing our overall inflammatory load is essential for reaching optimal health, and enjoying bone broth may be a great way to fight inflammation. Glycine has been shown to hold some anti-inflammatory properties, giving us one more reason to enjoy homemade bone broth.
