Bone broth is an excellent addition to any diet. It is tasty, inexpensive and simple to prepare, and it adds many minerals and perhaps other nutrients to the body easily.
Bone broth helps supply the body with much needed forms of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and many trace minerals. It also contains a little protein and some cartilage components such as chondroitin and glucosamine that are found in many animal bones.
Some of the physiological benefits may include:
- Reduces joint pain and inflammation, due to its content of chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine, and other compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage and collagen.
Amino acids such as glycine, proline, and arginine all have anti-inflammatory effects. Arginine, for example, has been found to be particularly beneficial for the treatment of sepsis (whole-body inflammation).Glycine also has calming effects, which may help you sleep better.
- Inhibits infections caused by cold and flu viruses etc. Recent studies on cartilage, which is found abundantly in homemade broth, show it supports the immune system in a variety of ways; it’s a potent normalizer, true biological response modifier, activator of macrophages, activator of Natural Killer (NK) cells, rouser of B lymphocytes, and releaser of Colony Stimulating Factor.
- Promotes strong, healthy bones: This is due to its mineral content. Also, collagen fibrils provide the latticework for mineral deposition and are the keys to the building of strong and flexible bones.
- Promotes healthy hair and nail growth, due to the gelatin in the broth.
MAKING BONE BROTH
The easiest way is simply to simmer lamb, beef, turkey, goat or chicken bones overnight in water on the stove. Bones from pigs may contain parasite ova, and are not recommended. Be sure to strain the broth before eating it to make sure you do not try to swallow small bones that could become caught in your throat.
If you don’t have bones, ask for some bones in the meat department of your local supermarket. They often have them.
Bone broth can be eaten all by itself as a cup of soup. It can also be added to many other dishes to enhance their flavor and nutrition.
For instance, you could make a vegetable dish or casserole and then add bone broth to it. However, please do not cook meat overnight as this is not ideal. Cook the bone broth separately, and then add it to the other dishes.
