But there’s one ingredient that stands out above all others when it comes to bone broth and that’s collagen! Collagen is the main protein found in bones, tendons and ligaments, so of course bone broth is extremely high in it. Collagen helps to improve the health and growth of our joints and our connective tissue such as our skin, cartilage and ligaments. In fact, it’s the main protein in our skin that keeps it firm, supple, and youthful.
But collagen isn’t just great for radiant skin, it’s also incredibly beneficial for our GUT! Collagen provides us with the necessary amino acids to repair and rebuild our gut wall. Without this protection, we can develop a condition called leaky gut which leaches toxins and bacteria into our bloodstream (yuk!). Collagen helps to strengthen the gut wall, making it less permeable and more likely to block out nasty toxins. Collagen is also inherently anti-inflammatory. It’s extremely high in glycine, which helps to improve digestive health by reducing inflammation and supporting the cells of the gut wall. Both collagen’s gut-sealing and anti-inflammatory properties means it’s also a powerful immune booster!
How to use bone broth:
Drink it straight up – Simply add 1 small tablespoon (8 g) of NutraOrganics Bone Broth powder to 250 ml of boiling water for a hearty cup of goodness.
Use it to cook grains – When cooking your favorite wholegrains such as brown rice or quinoa, use bone broth instead of water or stock
