Consuming bone broth isn't just Chinese medicine when you consume another part of the body with it comes nutrients which affect our body in a positive way ie when we eat chicken liver it specifically helps nourish your blood and liver. Bone broth has a unique amino acid profile which is nutritious for our bodies.
CHICKEN BONE BROTH: most beneficial for increasing type 2 collagen, ligament strength and glucosamine/chrondatin therefore this is important for our gut and joint health. This is why when we get sick we have chicken soup!
BEEF BROTH: this has type 1 and 3 collagen which means it is mineral dense of calcium and magnesium. It is most beneficial for skin, hair, nails and bones.
So whats so important about having collagen in our diets?
Collagen is also full of conditional amino acids like arginine, glutamine, glycine and proline. These are amino acids that, under normal circumstances, are produced by your body.
However, when you’re sick, under stress or otherwise unhealthy, your body may not be able to produce enough of these amino acids on its own. It needs help from outside sources (your diet or supplements) to get its fill.
Proline and glycine, in particular, play a major role in ensuring your body’s running smoothly. Proline makes up almost 15 percent of collagen. It also helps your artery walls release fat buildup in the bloodstream, shrinking the fat in the arteries and minimizing fat accumulation.
To ensure our cells function properly, it helps build healthy DNA strands. It’s also one of three amino acids that form creatine, which promotes healthy muscle growth and boosts energy production during workouts.
Below is link to a randomised double blinded study conducted on patient with OA and the positive differences it made on their pain and daily function by taking collagen supplements.
An ideal meal would be a crock pot meal or a slow cooker meal. This is because when you cook everything in the same pot your body can digest it properly, not only because it is well cooked but because the body has to do less differentiating.
