6 Health Benefits of Bone Broth (Hint: Bye Bye Allergies!)

Sponsored by Kettle & Fire

Bone broth started as a hipster trend and Paleo drink, but is now a staple for the health conscious (yes, even in the summer). Known for its wide range of health benefits, from reducing inflammation to relieving allergies, bone broth can be used as a healthy dinner base or as a satisfying snack.
 

If you are under the weather or feel a cold coming on, try drinking bone broth to soothe your symptoms and combat sickness.

 
You can use bone broth when you aren’t feeling well or sip on it throughout the day to curb hunger cravings. People have been making and eating bone broth for centuries as an efficient way to use animal parts, provide sustenance, and improve health overall.
 

What is Bone Broth?

Bone broth is a fancy term for stock, which is the base for soup. It is typically made of animal bones from chicken, beef, turkey, or fish, then mixed with water, vegetables, and herbs and simmered for hours (anywhere from 6 to 48 hours).
 
To avoid synthetic chemicals and potentially harmful additives like monosodium glutamate (MSG), try this recipe to make your bone broth at home or look for a brand that uses all organic ingredients like Kettle and Fire.
 

Here are 6 important health benefits of bone broth:

 

1. Reduces Inflammation

Chronic inflammation can lead to poor mobility, cognitive dysfunction, and pain. Bone broth contains minerals and compounds that reduce inflammation, including chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine, and trace minerals.
 

2. Improves Immune Response

The simmered goodness in bone both is rife with minerals and compounds that your body can easily absorb, including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, and sulphur. It is also stocked with amino acids.
 
These ingredients provide a boost to the immune system, as explained in The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson.
 
If you are under the weather or feel a cold coming on, try drinking bone broth to soothe your symptoms and combat sickness. The amino acids found in bone broth also improve your body’s immune response to allergens. If spring and summer have you sneezing away, try sipping bone broth before you go to bed.

3. Strengthens Bones

Loss of bone density is an indicator of arthritis and osteoarthritis, which disproportionately affect women. Bone broth is full of calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, bone marrow, gelatin, and collagen, which may contribute to stronger bones and a reduced risk of arthritis.
 

4. Protects Joints

The cartilage in joints breaks down over time. Bone broth contains trace minerals, bone marrow, gelatin, and collagen, which may protect joints. According to a study conducted by Penn State University, collagen aids in joint protection and improves athletic performance.
 

5. Better Skin

As mentioned in #4 above, bone broth contains collagen. Collagen has been found to improve skin elasticity and moisture, as well as to reduce skin roughness. Thus, bone broth can help improve your skin and reduce signs of aging.
 
Collagen is a common ingredient in many pricey anti-aging skin formulas, but drinking it is a more affordable way to get the same benefit. It improves the health and appearance of skin, hair, and nails.
 

6. Improves Gut Health

Though unsubstantiated scientifically, there are many anecdotal stories of people using bone broth to improve their gut health as well as their digestion. Certain trace minerals like collagen and gelatin contribute to a healthier gut. In particular, gelatin helps restore the gut lining and ease food sensitivities.
