Bone Broth, what? Yes, you heard that correctly, bone broth. In recent years bone broth has become a hot ticket health item along with side celery juice and other related holistic helpers. One could argue a majority of people are only buying bone broth because well “other people are”, or “someone said it was healthy”. If you’ve been wondering why the heck people are buying this stuff like its water, here’s why!
Bone broth is not the same as stock, because there is a difference in the cooking time, and no vegetables or meat need to be added in order to create the flavor or nutrients necessary to create an impact.
1. Bone Broth VS. Stock
Bone broth is not the same as stock, because there is a difference in the cooking time, and no vegetables or meat need to be added in order to create the flavor or nutrients necessary to create an impact. Unlike the boxed stock you can buy at the grocery store, bone broth is cooked for a long enough period of time for gelatine and collagen to be released from the bones and will gel into a solid when it’s cold.
2. Boosts immunity
Looking for a little boost in your immune system? The amino acids including arginine, glutamine, and cysteine, have been shown to help boost immune systems. Bone broth can not only impact the systems of humans but has been shown to impact animals as well.
3. Weight loss friendly
We aren’t saying drink endless amounts of bone broth to see instant results, but what we are saying is that it is a weight loss friendly. It is typically very low in calories but helps alleviate that feeling of hunger. Bone broth contains gelatine, which has been proven to promote that feeling of fullness after ingesting. Consuming it on a regular basis may help reduce calorie intake and lead to weight loss over time.
4. Fights Inflammation
Bone broth includes amino acids including cysteine, histidine, and glycine. These are amino acids that are specifically targeted to help fight inflammation. Another glutamine, L- glutamine helps also reduce gut inflammation. The broth also helps fight inflammation of the joints and other parts of the body.
The broth you eat does not have to be from a specific animal, you can have bone broth from pork, beef, veal, turkey, chicken, bison, buffalo, fish and more.
