At Sadie’s HQ, we live, breathe and digest bone broth as we would water – though we think a cup a day is a great place to start. We know lots of you are still curious when it comes to bone broth and all its health benefits. And though we’re no medical experts, below are only some of the great ways we know our bone broth can help your body.
Bone Broth Boosts Immunity
Always feeling rundown and prone to catching any bugs going around? Bone broth will help with this. The Amino acids in bone broth, like arginine, glutamine, and cysteine, have been shown to boost immunity – so you’ll be feeling like the best version of yourself when spring is here.
It Heals and Seals your Gut
Good news for those with tummy troubles. A cup of bone broth a day works miracles for leaky gut syndrome, but it’s also good for protecting non-leaky guts. The gelatin in the bones typically used for making broth is said to help seal up holes in intestines. This can help ease chronic diarrhoea, constipation, and even some food intolerances.
It helps Keep You Young
Being honest, none of us would likely say no to keeping our skin in the best condition it could be in – who doesn’t love a youthful glow? A big bone broth benefit is that it’s a rich source of collagen, which is also naturally occurring in the body as a joint protector and stabiliser.
Collagen helps keep the skin looking good; studies have shown an improvement in skin’s elasticity and fine lines from collagen supplements, so why not get your daily boost from our delicious broth?
It also protects your joints
If you suffer from joint pain, you may have taken glucosamine supplements which can help, but it turns out that bone broth has glucosamine, too. It also has many other nutritional and health benefits that can help reduce pain. Chondroitin sulfate, which is found in the cartilage that protects joints, for example, has been shown to help prevent osteoarthritis.
It can aid a better night’s Sleep
Need help nodding off? Research has shown that glycine, found in bone broth, may help improve sleep and ward off fatigue.
