Bone Broth: Nature's Elixir
It's a healthy favourite that’s been passed from generation to generation as a cure for everything from a cold to a low mood. Nothing quite beats it when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Bone broth has many benefits and utilises every part of an animal, making it healthy and resourceful. Not only does it taste delicious, there really is something wholesome and restorative about it. Bones are any animal’s structural home on Earth. They quite literally hold us up and root us to every other part of our being. It makes sense then that when we need to go back to our roots and find some healing, a good old fashioned broth is the best way to go. Here’s why you should consider boiling up a broth in order to gain some serious health benefits:
Clears up gut issues
Bone Broth has been shown to assist those who suffer from leaky gut syndrome. It’s full of gelatin which helps to heal holes in the intestines and relieve symptoms of the illness. However, it’s not just those with a leaky gut who can benefit. The research suggests that the benefits on overall gut health are still significant in those without a specific gut weakness. The gut is crucial to helping the digestive system function properly in order to remove waste from the body, so it’s important that we look after it. All the more reason to treat yourself to a warming bone broth.
Don’t bother heading to the cosmetic surgeon to keep you young - bone broth could be the answer! The collagen found in this delicious health food helps keep your skin looking young and fresh without the need of any procedures or products - magic!
There’s no denying how natural it is to reach for bone broth when you’re feeling unwell and it’s not an accident that your body craves it. Your immune system is your own personal bodyguard and defends against any kind of dangerous cells found in the blood. Luckily, bone broth is made of some amazing amino acids which boost the immune system and keep it fighting disease.
Heal your joints
The older we get, the more important it is to protect our joints and bone broth does just that. The natural collagen found in bone broth which keeps us looking lovely, also helps to heal joints by building protein rich cushions that rest between our bones. Our joints often stiffen and become subject to jarring and discomfort as we get older, so it’s really important that we do all we can to ensure the joints have the lubrication that they need to move. Bone Broth is easy to make and amazingly healthy for you, especially if you feel a little weak or under the weather. It’s a healthy comfort food (and how many of those are there?!).
That wholesome feeling that you get whilst sipping on a broth is your body telling you that it’s doing great things for you! We recommend giving it a try and letting us know how you get on. Connect with us on Facebook or Instagram (@lifestylingkitchen) to share your bone broth story!
