Benefits of Bone Broth

November 30, 2022 By , , , , , , ,

Bone broth, also called stock is a “soup”  made from simmering bones in water over a long period of time. Many drink bone broth on its own, and also can use it as a base for soups and other dishes.  Bone broth is a great way to get a wide variety of nutrients.   Bone broth contains many things that help the body  including amino acids, collagen, and protein. Many experts also suggest that the nutrients in bone broth may support digestive health, joint health and immunity. We recommend bone broth to our patients on our HCG DIET, Semaglutide weight loss and SYNERGYrx weight loss programs at The Natural Path.

 

Many Bone Broth Benefits

Amino acids are also known as the building blocks of proteins in our bodies.  Amino acids are one of the main components of bone broth. Proteins are used within the body to perform many important functions  including repairing, building, and growing  tissues.  Bone broth can benefit people of all ages and help the body in recovery and support.

Bone Broth and the Brain

Bone broth is a wonderful source of the amino acid glycine, which plays a key role as a neurotransmitter (messenger between nerves and cells), influencing brain development, motor skills, and behavior.  Glycine is another amino acid that also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.  Some studies have shown that glycine can decrease neurological (brain and spinal cord) damage related to oxidative stress.

Bone Broth and Gut health

Beef bone broth is extremely rich in the amino acid glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant and widely used amino acid in the body.  Did you know that roughly 30% of total body glutamine is used by the digestive tract to support intestinal health?  Its functions include supporting a healthy inflammatory response, maintaining the intestinal barrier, and regulating intestinal cell death.  Glutamine is amazing at healing the entire lining of the digestive tract. bone broth benefits

Bone Broth and Immune health

The amino acid glutamine is also a key player for  a healthy immune system. White blood cells require glutamine for optimal function. During illness or injury, glutamine is used by the immune system as a source of energy for the human body.  Did you know that glutamine can be created within the body?  However, during illness the body needs more than it can produce to heal. Research has shownthat supplementing with glutamine during an illness may be beneficial for immune health.

Bone Broth and Joint health

Joint pain is one of the most common causes of chronic pain in the US.  Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage in joints begins to breakdown. This causes bones to rub against each other as the joint moves. This creates pan and damages many connective tissues present in the joint cavity.  Collagen is really important for  joint health. Collagen can be created in the body using amino acids, or brought in from diet and/or  supplements.  Consuming more collagen and collagen-building amino acids can be a way to promote bone and joint health over time.

Bone Broth and Skin health

Skin is the body’s largest organ.  Our skin system contains up to 70% collagen.  Collagen plays an important role in maintaining skin structure and elasticity.  As we age, the amount of collagen productioon slows down. Overtime, this leads to thin, dry and wrinkled skin.  reduces collagen production within the body, which can weaken skin elasticity and strength, causing the skin to become thin, dry, and wrinkled. The collagen in bone broth can help brimg a youthful glow to your skin.
