Nature's Multivitamin: 5 Amazing Health Benefits of Bone Broth

Increasingly, bone broth has become popular in the Western world, and for good reason.

Affectionately referred to as “nature’s multivitamin,” bone broth is packed with over 19 easy-to-absorb amino acids for protein, collagen for healthy bones, gelatin for healthy tissue, and a plethora of other nutrients that help strengthen the gut, boost immunity and improve brain health.

I honestly can't say enough good things about bone broth, and I'm amazed at how I've seen it improve the health and lives of so many.  Here are 5 amazing health benefits of bone broth.

1. Bone broth is incredible for your gut.

Unlike most of what we consume each day, bone broth naturally soothes the digestive system.

Once the gelatin in bone broth enters the digestive tract, it binds with the water to support the healthy movement of food through your intestines. At the same time it works to restore the integrity of your gut lining, and fight off common food sensitivities such as wheat and dairy.  

The gelatin in bone broth also supports the growth of probiotics in your gut, which has been shown to improve inflammatory bowel disease.

2. It supports your immune system.

Your small intestine is the first line of defense in your immune system.  So when it becomes damaged or leaky, it leaves you vulnerable to sickness and disease.

Leaky gut syndrome occurs when undigested food particles seep through tiny holes in the intestinal lining and enter the bloodstream.  The immune system then detects the food particles, and goes into overdrive, becoming inflamed.

The abundance of glycine found in bone broth works beautifully to decrease this inflammation, while at the same time strengthening the tissue that lines it. 

Collagen, amino acids, glutamine, and arginine, all found in abundance in bone broth, continue to help close those holes, therefore strengthening your immune system. 

3. It’s good for weight loss.

The glutamine found in amino acids supports a healthy metabolism and helps you maintain energy by sending nutrients to your cells. 

And because bone broth is high in protein, it helps you feel full longer, which as you know, can keep you from overeating. 

“One cup of chicken bone broth offers 9 grams of protein, whereas one cup of beef bone broth offers 11 grams of protein.”

4. It's simply amazing for joint health.

The collagen in bone broth was shown to be effective at improving pain, stiffness and join function in patients with osteoarthritis. 

Also, the gelatin found in bone broth not only helps with injury prevention, but it also helps repair your muscle tissue after you exercise.

Bone broth is also rich in calcium, a mineral well known for maintaining strong bones and preventing bone loss as we age.

5. It promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails.

The elastin and other compounds formed by the collagen found in bone broth, are those responsible for maintaining your skin's youthful tone, texture, and appearance.  The stronger the presence of collagen, the less visible signs of wrinkles, puffiness, and other various signs of aging.

Some folks even swear by drinking bone broth daily to keep their skin youthful and supple.

And the list goes on!

Bone broth has been attributed to better sleep, increased hydration because of the electrolytes, and works as a powerful detoxifying agent.  It helps the digestive system expel waste and promotes the liver's ability to remove toxins.

So are you ready to get in on these amazing health benefits for yourself?

To get the optimal benefits, its much better to make your beef broth at home, but you want to buy bones from animals that you know are pasture-fed and free of antibiotics and hormones.  This will ensure your bones are free from most toxins.

Alternatively saving your bones from your roasted chicken or beef dish will work as well.

If you’re using bones from commodity animals pumped full of hormones and antibiotics, you may be jeopardizing your health at the same time you're trying to improve it. 

At Null Ridge Premium Beef, Our Bone Marrow Bones are perfect for making bone broth.

Our bones are sourced from the cows at our local ranch, who are raised lovingly, and never given antibiotics, growth enhancements or hormones.

To make bone broth at home, simply simmer the bones in water for about 12 hours.

Cook your broth low and slow with an acidic ingredient, such as apple cider vinegar, and during the last hour of simmering, add in your favorite vegetables, herbs, or even grains for additional flavor and nutrition.
