Bone broth is considered a “Superfood” by many. Broths and stocks have been part of almost every culture’s culinary tradition for centuries. Bone broth can be incredibly beneficial because it has essential minerals and amino acids easy and ready to absorb. Did you know that there are 5 types of collagen?? Beef bone broth is made up of type II collagen which is only found in bones and connective tissue. It also has nutrients like essential minerals – calcium, magnesium, and potassium. It also contains glycine, proline, silicon, gelatin, and glucosamine. It is a supportive food for the digestive system and can help with a leaky gut.
Top Benefits of Bone Broth:
- Can help seal your gut lining if it has holes (aka leaky gut) because it has Proline, glycine, glutamine, and collagen.
- Helps with bloating, diarrhea, gas, acid reflux and constipation. (Helps repair the digestive system)
- Can help protect your joints and enhance bone health. (Collagen and all those amazing minerals!)
- More youthful-looking skin thanks to the collagen.
- Helps detoxify the liver… glycine helps support phase 2 detoxification in the liver.
- Enhances sleep quality thanks to the glycine. (Glycine helps increase serotonin levels which is the precursor for melatonin. It also inhibits excitatory neurotransmitter to help the brain feel calmer).
The recommendation is 2-3 cups per day:
- You can drink it straight up.
- Freeze for later use.
- Make soup.
- Use in smoothies.
- Add in sauces.
Here is the bone broth recipe that Life. Health. Happiness recommends: The Ultimate Easy Slow Cooker Bone Broth Recipe (Nourishing Traditions)
As amazing as bone broth is for the body… it may not be great for you. Bone broth is high in histamines (its cooked for a long time)… this can trigger a histamine response in the body. Bone broth is also high it glutamates that can affect the brain. If after you have bone broth and you experience an adverse reaction such as gas, bloating, nausea, fatigue, excitability, anger, or do not feel well, then you should decrease your bone broth consumption. You can try to experiment with the cooking to see if you tolerate it better.
- Cook for only 2-4 hours (vs 24 hours).
- Freeze the broth right away to keep the histamine levels down.
- Add in turmeric, ginger, garlic, onions, holy basil, or thyme to reduce the histamine reactions.
Pay attention to the effect it has on your body and adjust accordingly.
