Better Recovery and Digestion with Bone Broth

Traditionally, soup was given to those who fell ill or injured. There is a reason why! Bone broth is one of the most nourishing and healing substances you can put in your body. Here are some of the reasons why I love it so much: bone broth Aids Proper Digestion Bone broth helps to increase stomach acidity so that you have the digestive power to extract the most out of your food and it also has a particularly positive effect on the small intestine. Try having a small cup with a meal or use it as a base for soups and stews! Reduces Joint Pain and Inflammation The chondroitin and glucosamine, which are sold in expensive joint formulas, are naturally found in bone broth. They can stimulate the production of collagen to sooth and repair damaged joints. When inflammation levels are lower in the body, it can focus its energy on routine maintenance like rebuilding issues and detoxification, to keep you healthy! Speeds Recovery After Injury, Surgery or Workouts Bone broth is one of the best things to have when you are recovering from a surgery or super intense workout because it provides a mega dose of nutrients readily available for absorption without having to go through the entire digestive process until eating a piece of chicken at a meal. Going on a soup and based recovery diet will help the body send its energy to the place in need! Better than Any Supplement Other than poor quality and man made vitamin and mineral supplements, the problem is that they are not bioavailable. This means our body cannot extract and use these nutrients and therefore they are useless. The good news is that the fats in bone broths help to restore gut health and increase absorption rates of these precious nutrients. Skip the supplement isle and make friends with your local, organic farmer or butcher instead. Featured Image: http://www.angelhands.ca/ Click here to check out more from Gillian
