Bone broth has been a staple of almost all ancient cultures throughout the world as a valuable source of nutrients and amino acids. The broth is made by simmering bones and connective tissues for 48 to 72 hours to extract healing compounds like collagen, minerals, and essential amino acids. Bone broth is a great way to get nutrients that are often hard to get in a modern diet.

With the pace of modern life ancient traditions like bone broth have largely been forgotten. Yet it is precisely the fast pace and stresses of modern life that make the nutrients in bone broth more important than ever. This is why we are very excited at the Sunflower Shoppe to be carrying a full line of bone broth protein powders!

Powdered bone broth delivers all the benefits of homemade bone broth without all the work or wait; here are some of the highlights:

  1. Weight loss: Bone broth protein makes an excellent meal replacement as it’s high in protein but low in calories. Bone broth also contains gelatin which has been shown in several studies to increase fullness and reduce appetite.[1]

 

  1. Heal leaky gut: Bone broth contains the amino acid L-glutamine which directly fuels the cells that line the intestine helping them repair faster. The gelatin contained in bone broth enhances the mucosal lining of the gut effectively plugging the “leaks” in a leaky gut. [2]

 

  1. Anti-inflammatory: Inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne can be reduced or healed naturally with bone broth thanks to its anti-inflammatory amino acids like glycine.[3]

 

  1. Joint health: Bone broth is packed with joint supporting nutrients like collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid. Together these nutrients help rebuild cartilage, slow the progression of arthritis, and add cushioning between the bones. [4][5]

 

  1. Healthy hair, skin and nails: The main nutrient in bone broth for skin, hair and nails is collagen. Collagen is what maintains skin elasticity and firmness as well as promotes smooth and supple skin.[6]

Remember bone broth has such a wide variety of nutrients that it supports virtually every organ in the body. Here at the Shoppe, we feel that bone broth is the number one way to reconnect with wisdom of ancient nutrition and fortify your body from the inside out.
