Bone broth is the big buzz lately and for good reasons. Bone broth is good for your health. It is also super easy to make. Before you get excited and think about throwing a bullion into a cup of hot water for a “bone broth” know that those little cubes are full of MSG- monosodium glutamate (which is a neurotoxin) and that is not the same as true and healthy bone broth. Bullion cubes lack the rich nutrients that you would get from a homemade bone broth. Bone broth is loaded with minerals that reinforce the immune system because it has healing elements like collagen and glutamine that support the gut. For people who do not have time to make homemade (although it is easy to do in a crock-pot), there are pre-made bone broth soups plus bone broth powders. You can easily add the powders to almost anything you consume for your convenience.
Bone broth powers for the immune system and the gut! Minerals that are usually hard for the body to absorb are quickly absorbed when digesting bone broth. The gelatin that is in the bone broth helps to strengthen the lining of the gut, supports probiotic growth, fights inflammation in the digestive tract, and can help ease food some sensitivities. Bone broth is one of an essential food to consume if you want to help heal your gut because when the lining is improved your, the body will be to retain nutrients.
Anyone who has gastrointestinal issues such as leaky gut should start incorporating the healing powers of bone broth as a part of their nutritional regimen but if that is not enough. Anyone with GI issues should consider comprehensive stool testing to understand their gut health better. GI issues can cause many symptoms making everyday life more complicated then it needs to be.
