Bone Broth Benefits
Bone broth is the new buzzing word in beauty & health community. More and more New Yorkers are starting to ditch coffee and replace the 2nd cup with a cup of hearty bone broth. In fact, it is a good way to supplement collagen and other nutrients such as Calcium naturally.
At a holistic health conference in New York, I met this wonderful family from Michigan. Laya, a young girl in her 20s used to be a dancer but broke her ankle in an accident leading to a surgery. However, the surgery caused inflammation, aggravating Laya’s Crohn’s disease. Doctors prescribed her Humira. Knowing the horrendous side effects of Humira, the family refused to put her on Humira. Instead, Dorothy, the mother, dedicated herself to healing her daughter’s condition holistically and developed her recipe of bone broth. After 2 years or so of love and dedicated care from her mother, her ankle is completely healed and she can even go hiking. Only a mother can do this, right? I had to try the broth and it was delicious because hearty vegetables and herbs were added to it (I hate the taste of powdered collagen!).
Their grass-fed beef bones and chicken bones are slowly simmered for 48 hours. They use all organic and the best ingredients. Simmering causes all the protein, collagen, glycine, proline, glutamine and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sulphur, glucosamine and chondroitin to melt into the broth from the bones creating a gelatinous and healing food.

The benefits of bone broth are:
As a rich source of collagen, it prevents wrinkles and increases elasticity in your skin. Our bodies produce less collagen with age, which causes the loss of skin firmness. It also aids in nail and hair growth.
High in Sulfated Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’S) and Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, it helps reduce inflammation in the body.
Bone + Joint health
Amino acid Proline, plus collagen, Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate are anti-inflammatory nutrients, which benefit joint health. Calcium with collagen contribute to stronger bones and prevents osteoporosis.
Gelatin and the amino acids Proline and Glycine help to repair the lining in your gut and sooth issues ranging from Crohn’s, Colitis, IBS, acid reflux, food allergies and leaky gut syndrome.
Amino acid Glutamine helps improve your metabolism. Broth is low in calories, just 80 calories per serving. The high Protein content (14g per cup) helps build lean muscle mass and helps increase your metabolism.
It has other benefits such as cellulite reduction and increased brain function due to its nutrients.
In my humble opinion, it is always better to take nutrients from whole food then from vitamins or minerals created in labs. So, why not grab a cup of bone broth instead of coffee this Winter? http://bit.ly/2ACbocP
