8 Reasons why should you make Beef Bone Broth a part of your lifestyle?
1. It has a lot of Vitamins and Minerals
Beef Bone Broth is rich in minerals that helps build and strengthen your bones. It contains many healthy nutrients that include vitamins, amino acids, and essential fatty acids.
Many people don’t get enough of these nutrients in their diet, so drinking bone broth or adding it to your recipes is a good way to get more.
Beef Bone Broth by itself is very nutritious however, the nutrient content does depend on the ingredients you use, as each item brings something different to the table.
We use a variety of bones from 100% grass fed cattle. They are rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and other trace minerals — the same minerals needed to build and strengthen your own bones.
•Connective tissue in knuckle bones give you glucosamine and chondroitin, natural compounds found in cartilage that are known to support joint health.
•Marrow provides vitamin A, vitamin K2, minerals like zinc, iron, boron, manganese, and selenium, as well as omega-6 fatty acids.
•Neck bones give the broth a satisfying beefy flavor.
Together this combination of bones contain protein collagen, which turns into gelatin when cooked and yields several important amino acids. As the ingredients simmer, their nutrients are released into the water in a form your body can easily absorb.
2. Beauty Benefits
There is evidence that components found in bone broth (e.g. glycosaminoglycans such as keratan sulfate, dermatan sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid) can support collagen production, improve skin elasticity, hydrate and protect against UV-induced skin damage.
Beef bone broth can support the health of collagen structures throughout the body, including skin and joints. This is key because collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It's about one-third of the body's protein and collagen levels begin decreasing in our 20s at about one percent every year.
The collagen you get in bone broth aids in hydration and helps to maintain that youthful appearance as we age.
The amino acids found in gelatin help with collagen production. This gives you stronger hair, nails and improved skin elasticity.
3. It benefits the digestive system
Scientists have discovered that your overall health depends heavily on the health of your intestinal tract. The gelatin in bone broth supports overall healthy digestion.
When preparing bone broth, the gelatin naturally attracts and holds liquids. This is why properly prepared broth congeals in the fridge and that gelatin may work as a binder to the water in your digestive tract, which helps foods move through your gut more easily.
There is also an amino acid in gelatin called glutamine. It helps maintain the function of the intestinal wall and has been known to prevent and heal a condition known as “leaky gut”.
For all of these reasons, drinking beef bone broth is beneficial for a variety of intestinal diseases.
4. It helps fight inflammation
The amino acids found in beef bone broth, including glycine and arginine, have strong anti-inflammatory effects. Making it a part of your lifestyle may help protect you against disease.
Arginine, in particular, is said to be beneficial for fighting chronic inflammation. While some inflammation is necessary, chronic inflammation may lead to a number of serious diseases and many types of cancer.
5. Joint Health
The amino acids in bone broth also may help support joint health, and lessen the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
During the cooking process, collagen from bones and connective tissue is broken down into another protein called gelatin.
Gelatin contains important amino acids that support joint health.
It contains proline and glycine, which your body uses to build its own connective tissue.
Studies have also found that the glucosamine and chondroitin which are natural compounds found in cartilage can help decrease joint pain and lessen the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
6. It is weight-loss friendly
Because gelatin in bone broth helps promote satisfying feelings of fullness and is typically low in calories , taking it in on a regular basis may reduce your overall calorie intake and lead to weight loss over time.
The high protein helps improve appetite control, increasing weight loss and allowing you to maintain lean muscle mass.
7. It helps improve sleep and brain function
Bone Broth has Glycine.
Therefore, drinking bone broth could have similar benefits.
One study showed that taking glycine before bed helped participants:
• fall asleep faster
• maintain a deeper sleep
• wake up fewer times throughout the night
This study also found that glycine helped reduce daytime sleepiness and improve mental function and memory.
Versatile and nourishing broth can be used for numerous things including soups, sauces, the base of gravies and even a healthy drink.
