Bone broth benefits

The name “bone broth” is a little confusing. Because it’s made primarily from animal bones, it’s technically a stock, not a broth, the latter being made with actual meat.

Those who embrace the bone broth movement aren’t confused one bit about the benefits they say they’re getting: improved immunity and metabolism, stronger bones, protected joints, reduced inflammation, and better skin.

Those benefits, they maintain, are thanks to bone broth’s high levels of collagen (a special protein containing lots of the amino acids glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline), as well as essential minerals (like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorous) that are present in bone broth.

Devotees attribute bone broth’s skin-smoothing powers mainly to the collagen, a protein that works like a “glue,” holding our bones and muscles together, protecting our joints and organs, and helping to preserve our gut lining.

Although our bodies make collagen naturally, production decreases as we age. We make 1% less every year starting around our mid-20s, and women lose even more after menopause.

Other factors, like smoking or sun damage, also hamper collagen production. With less collagen, skin loses its elasticity and becomes wrinkled.

How is bone broth made?

To make bone broth, animal bones, cartilage, tendons, and connective tissue are simmered in water for several hours. The long cooking process draws out the nutrients.
