Bone broth is a nutrient-dense liquid full of amino acids and minerals and is one of the best sources of collagen in the world. This is made from boiled animal bones and played a key part in the evolution of humans, especially in strengthening the human hands. Only two to three generations back families would always consume broth in their diet in delicious juice so that new food was wasted.
Unfortunately, nowadays, most people are deficient in collagen, which leads to stiff joints, faster aging, sagging skin, and weak bones.
In today's article, we highlight 12 facts and benefits of bone broth and explain why you should get this into your diet daily
1. Joint Health
Bone broth is hands down the best super-food in the world for strengthening the joints and relieving joint pain. It is rich in natural collagen, the main structural protein in the body which makes up the joint's cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues. Drink this twice per day if you suffer from joint problems or arthritis
2. Bone Health
Did you know that bones are made up of more collagen than calcium? Bone broth supplies this very important collagen, which makes them stronger and more flexible, and less likely to fracture as we get older, we highly recommend this if you suffer from osteoporosis or osteopenia
3. Gut Health
Bone broth has been used for 1000s of years to support digestion because it strengthens the lining of the gut. Bone broth is rich in amino acids and collagen, which builds the walls of the intestines and colon. This helps to fight leaky gut syndrome, IBS Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohn's disease
By supporting a healthy gut, bone broth helps you to grow more friendly bacteria called probiotics. These help your body to absorb more nutrients from other foods that you consume and also make up over 70% of the immune system. Consuming bone broth daily will make your body more resistant to infections and diseases
Unlike other forms of protein. Bone broth is much more easily absorbed and easier to digest. This is excellent for elderly people who have a weaker digestive system and struggle to digest heavy proteins like meat or dairy. Bone broth contains amino acids, which can readily be used as building materials for the body, which is why we also recommend this drink for growing children
6. Skin Health
Foods that are rich in collagen-like bone broth help form elastin and other compounds in the skin. This helps to prevent skin from sagging and keeps it firm yet smooth with age. We tend to lose collagen, as we get older, so enjoying bone broth, often, is a great way to slow the effects of aging
Cellulite is very common in the hips, thighs, and buttocks in women. This happens when the connective tissues break down, and the skin loses its natural firm tone, taking collagen, or bone broth daily can help to reduce cellulite and restore the firmness of the skin, especially when combined with leg exercises and squats
Nowadays we are exposed to all kinds of environmental toxins pesticides and heavy metals, which can cause damage to the body. Bone broth has been shown to help the liver to detoxify these harmful chemicals from your body. This supports better blood sugar levels, hormone balance, and overall well-being
9. Hair Growth
Many people report growing thicker healthier hair when consuming bone broth regularly. The amino acids and minerals in the broth, are used as raw materials to build strong hair follicles. Alternatively, you can purchase a multi collagen supplement for similar effects
10. Nail Growth
Taking bone broth daily can begin to strengthen the nails in less than a week. The amino acid called arginine helps to nourish the nail bed, helping to promote its health and growth. This reduces nail breakage and helps them to grow longer faster
11. Blood Pressure
The walls of your blood vessels and arteries are made up of collagen which can deteriorate as we age, consuming bone broth can help to reduce inflammation and allow for better blood flow. This helps to stabilize blood pressure and protect against heart problems, you also need lots of vitamin C and antioxidants from vegetables to support natural blood flow
12. Muscle Growth
If you are trying to gain muscle or exercise regularly taking bone broth can help to support faster growth and repair. It's the rich profile of amino acids and collagen supplies the raw materials to build muscle tissue. This is used daily by bodybuilders and athletes.

b. Place the bones in a large pot or slow cooker, cover with water and add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
c. Add any herbs or spices that you wish
d. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 24 to 48 hours on very low heat, the amino acids, minerals, and collagen will leach from the bones into the water
e. Strain this and store it in a glass jar. We recommend consuming bone broth daily for a month and you will soon begin to notice how much better you feel
How To Use
You can add bone broth into many delicious recipes including soups, stir-fries, and noodle dishes. You may also simply drink this as a tea or blended it into the coffee.
If you don't have the time to make bone broth, you can purchase bone broth powder from health food stores. Always ensure that you choose a brand that is pesticide-free and uses high-quality bones in its manufacturing process. Simply scoop this into a daily drink for the best effects.

We recommend loading up with this three times per day for one month. And then once per day afterward, you may experience clearer healthier skin, nails, and hair very quickly. You may also experience an amazing difference with digestion, including less bloating and higher energy levels.
