Delicious, gut healing bone broth can be yours in just under 2 hours!
Why You Need Bone Broth
On a keto diet, the goal is often healing the body. This would include healing the gut, the joints, and other inflammation throughout. One way to assist your body in healing is to drink plenty of nourishing bone broth. Whether you call it “Jewish penicillin” or “Home cooked health”, Grandma had it right. Broth is food for not only the body, but the soul.
Bone broths can be protein sparing, which means that meat goes a lot further when eaten in a broth. This is great on the budget. Bone broths are wonderful for sipping on in the cold winter, too. You can get the benefits of broth in a warming drink.
Other Ways Bone Broths Benefit You
A good bone broth can help the body overcome colds, flu, and other maladies, as well as provide minerals. Bone broths are a good source of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur and are more available in ready to use forms through broth. The gelatin in the bones is also thought to be a good digestive aid.
Bone broths also contain collagen from the bones. Collagen helps form elastin and other compounds within skin that will help maintain skin’s tone, texture and appearance. It is thought that collagen can reduce the signs of aging, puffiness and even diminish wrinkles. The collagen from the bones may help skin, hair and nails become strong and healthy.
Other benefits of a good bone broth are:
- Treat leaky gut syndrome
- Overcome food intolerances and allergies
- Improve joint health
- Reduce cellulite
- Boost immune system
