How Bone Broth Helps Your Skin and Your Body
There is no doubt that there is a distinct connection between our gut health and our skin health. Studies have shown a direct correlation between the two. When the lining of our digestive system is compromised in any way, usually from certain foods, the effects can appear in our skin. That’s one reason why you should take care of the inside as well as the outside of your body.
Something that has been highly recognized for its incredible health benefits is Bone Broth.
So what is Bone Broth exactly? It’s a broth made by simmering the bones and connective tissue of animals which is then commonly used in soups, sauces and gravies. Many are using it as a health drink as well. Bones from pork, beef, veal, turkey, lamb, chicken or fish and marrow and connective tissues like feet, hooves, beaks, gizzards or fins can be used.
Loaded with vitamins and minerals, it’s not only rich in flavor but also in its healing abilities. The minerals in bone broth, such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and glucosamine, can be easily absorbed by the body. The process for making bone broth releases compounds such as collagen, glycine and glutamine. These compounds help maintain your skins youthful texture and appearance while also decreasing cellulite.
