This warm broth has been long used in the treatment of different diseases. It soothes and nourishes the body, mind and soul.
Historical records show that even Hippocrates had associated bone broth with gut health. Today, as people are more interested in gut healing, this old recipe will sure contribute to a more successful healing process.
The introduction of this broth to the world of modern medicine means that we are actually rediscovering the influence of gut on overall health and diseases.
The root cause of modern diseases usually varies, but science confirms that people struggle with diseases mostly because of the microorganisms in the digestive tract, poor diet high in sugar and low in healthy fat and beneficial bacteria.
Bone broth contributes to the treatment of digestive and joint problems. Dr. Kaayla Daniel, vice president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and coauthor (with Sally Fallon Morell) of the book, Nourishing Broth, explains that bone broth is essential component of any healing diet, regardless of the health issue that bothers you.
Bone Broth -- Benefits
Leaky gut is considered to be the cause of many health problems, including allergies, autoimmune and neurological disorders. Bone broth contains collagen that acts like a soothing balm. It heals and seals gut lining, which is why bone broth is essential component of Gut and psychology syndrome (GAPS) diet. This diet was developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, a Russian neurologist.
GAPS diet is often included in the treatment of children with autism and other disorders caused by gut disfunction, but it can provide great benefits for anyone who needs to improve the gut health.
Bone broth can also provide benefits to those who need to treat acute health conditions, such as cold and flu. Scientists have not conducted many studies on soup, but one particular study has confirmed that chicken soup opens up airways even better than hot water.
Processed and canned soup is not as effective as the homemade bone broth cooked in a slow-cooker. Make some hot and spicy soup and add a lot of pepper.
Spices stimulate the sudden release of watery fluids in the mouth, throat, and lungs. This thins down the respiratory mucus, making it easier to expel. The nutrients contained in bone broth are found in a form that is easily absorbed and used. Bone broth is packed with:
- Calcium, phosphorus and trace minerals
- Components of collagen and cartilage
- Silicon and other trace minerals
- Components of bone and bone marrow
- Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate
- “Conditionally essential” amino acids -- proline, glycine, and glutamine
