Health benefits of quality bone broth:
The gelatin that results from the collagen in the bones, joints and connective tissue of a healthy animal has a wealth of value to the human body. Studies show that gelatin supports a healthy liver and gut, alleviates rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other degenerative joint diseases while supporting a healthy musculoskeletal system. The gelatin abundant in a quality broth has been shown to reduce and alleviate allergic symptoms, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and respiratory ailments in infants relying on formula and in adults suffering from Celiac disease and other food allergies and sensitivities. Glycine, an amino acid very present in gelatin, aids digestion and repairs gastrointestinal disorders. Glycine is essential to the healthy growth of young children and a growing fetus and to women during pregnancy .
Uses for bone broth:
Don't worry, this jiggly mass heats to a delicious, silky liquid! Broth can be enjoyed straight out of a mug just like coffee or tea. It makes a great base for soups, stews and sauces and can be used in place of water for cooking grains and vegetables.
