Unexpected Bone Broth Benefits

I was in a small grocery store in the mountains recently, and noticed that they had bone broth for sale. I thought, “Wow, we’ve come a long way!”

And that’s a good thing.

Here’s why

Bone broth used to be nearly impossible to find in modern-day grocery stores. But to eke out as much nutritional value from their food as possible, our ancestors made homemade bone broth all the time.

Bone broth may sound exotic (and the fancy packaging at the store can certainly make it feel that way). But the truth is it couldn’t be simpler to make.

The broth is made by boiling bones (chicken, beef, or pork) in water for a long time. This releases the beneficial nutrients from the bone marrow, making them available to boost our nutrition.

The marrow in the middle of bones is packed with vital fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and proteins that give the broth a BIG nutritional punch.

This old-fashioned remedy has been getting attention again in recent years because of its gut-balancing benefits. You see, bone broth NATURALLY soothes stomach complaints and improves digestive health.

The broth contains essential nutrients modern humans often lack, including glutamine and collagen. Both are needed for a healthy gut lining that functions efficiently.

Plus, it contains gelatin, which soothes and protects the gut lining and helps repair intestinal walls.

Ready to give bone broth a try? You’ll find a variety to choose from at most grocery stores.

The following are some creative ways to incorporate it into your diet…

  • Soup base: Bone broth makes the perfect base for homemade soups, stews, or chilies. It gives the dishes a rich, savory flavor and helps heal the gut.
  • Cooking grains and legumes: When making grains like rice, quinoa, or lentils, try replacing the water with bone broth. It will make your side dishes taste terrific, and they’ll be brimming with extra nutrients.
  • Sauces and gravies: Use bone broth as a delicious addition to sauces and gravies. It adds extra depth and flavor.
  • Smoothies: Add a splash of bone marrow broth to your favorite fruit and veggie smoothies. Don’t worry. It won’t make your drink taste “meaty.” Instead, it just adds a nice smooth texture while sending their nutritional value soaring.

Take a page from our ancestors’ book and make delicious, nutritious bone broth a regular part of your diet.
