Bone broth..Why is it so good?

1. Bone broth is good for healthy joints
The health of your joints depends largely on the health of the collagen found in your ligaments and tendons. Collagen is a family of biomolecules that, among other things, contain glycosaminoglycans that help keep our joints healthy.

Bone broth is full of glycosaminoglycans (abbreviated GAG). You may recognize the name from the health food store, where it is called glucosamine, but glucosamine is only part of all the glycosaminoglycans found in bone broth. You also get, among other things, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has a shock-absorbing function, which makes it an important component of cartilage tissue.

If you suffer from problems with osteoarthritis, it can help to consume bone broth precisely because of the various glycosaminoglycans found in bone broth.

2. Bone broth is good for hair, skin and nails
When you cook your own bone broth, you prefer to use leftover bones where some kind of joint remains. The reason is that you then get more collagen out of your bone broth.

Collagen is an important building block for the skin, hair and nails. So instead of just spending expensive money on various creams and oils, it might be worth trying bone broth to build shiny hair, soft skin and durable nails from the inside.

3. Bone broth for damaged stomach and intestines
In today's society, it is very common to have various stomach and intestinal problems. There are many reasons why it can occur, it can be due to incorrect eating habits, stress, fungal infections, intolerances and much more which can cause the intestine to start leaking and let through undigested food particles. Leaky gut can become a serious problem if it is not taken care of, leaky gut has been linked to various allergies and autoimmune diseases, among other things.

One of the most important nutrients for healing the gut is gelatin.

When you boil your own broth, you get plenty of gelatin provided you use bones with cartilage and joints because that's where the gelatin comes from.
