How can bone broth improve your health? According to natural medicine doctor, Dr. Josh Axe, “Bone broth is a great place to find valuable amino acids, collagen, gelatin and trace minerals.” Dr. Axe describes the benefits of bone broth in his book, The Bone Broth Breakthrough, including how bone broth can support healing of the intestinal lining. Bone broth is easily digested and its gelatin boosts gut health and fights food sensitivities. It can help prevent immune system problems that often accompany a condition commonly referred to as “leaky gut”, which causes a host of health issues. “Leaky gut occurs when undigested particles from foods seep through tiny openings in the weakened intestinal lining and enter the bloodstream, where the immune system detects them and becomes hyperactive,” explains Dr. Axe.

Bone broth is making a huge comeback and being called a “superfood.” Consuming bone broth every day can lead to many health benefits. Bone broth protects the joints, cartilage, our skin, immune system, and metabolism. In addition, bone broth will also provide glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, minerals, electrolytes, and collagen that are extremely beneficial.

Maybe you need help with a liver detox? Bone broth also contains potassium and glycine, which support both cellular and liver detoxification. If sleep is an ongoing issue, then bone broth can promote healthy sleep, and boost energy and improve mood. Add bone broth to your soups or stews for an easy way to incorporate it into your diet.
