The Low Down on Bone Broth
You might have heard or read about people drinking bone broth for health benefits. Foodies and wellness experts claim that bone broth has replaced juicing. So what exactly is bone broth, and why is it so healthy?
Bone broth is made from the bones of animals. The bones should not have much meat on them when bone broth is prepared. They are simmered for at least 24 hours, which helps to remove as much of the nutrients and minerals as possible. Bone broths are a good source of amino acids like arginine, glycine, and proline. It is also rich in gelatin.
Why Are These Nutrients Important?
Before you start drinking bone broth instead of your morning cup of coffee, you might want to know why it’s even appealing. Glycine supports your body’s detoxification system. Proline supports good skin health, especially when paired with vitamin C.
Gelatin helps with collagen creation, which is good for keeping your skin youthful. It also helps with digestion. Some experts even claim that it boosts your immune system in the way that chicken soup helps you feel better when you have a cold.
