Soup, Broth and Bone Broth
Soup is made with meat, vegetables, herbs and a few bones, simmered for 2 hours to make a soup which is rich in protein and nutrients. Stock is made from bones with a bit of meat and is simmered longer, around 6 hours. This longer process allows other healthy minerals and some gelatin to seep into the stock. Bone broth is similar to stock, except that it is simmered much longer around 24 hours or more. This longer simmering period means most of the gelatin, nutrients, amino acids, and minerals seep out of the bones and into the bone broth.
Bone Broth Nutrients
The health benefits of bone broth come from its long simmering time. Bone broth is low in calories and high in protein and minerals. 1 cup has around 10 grams of protein. That protein comes from nearly 20 different essential and non-essential amino acids. These amino acids help heal and protect our bodies in all sorts of ways. Plus, the calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and many other essential minerals help flush out toxins and reduce inflammation in our bodies. Many of us don’t get enough of these minerals from other foods, so bone broth can be a good source. Combined with the many amino acids, these minerals can help speed up some of our body’s healing processes.
Easy to Digest
The minerals and amino acids in bone broth are highly bioavailable nutrients meaning they come in an easy to digest. It can be difficult for the body to digest proteins or absorb certain minerals. So, even when we consume foods with healthy nutrients, our bodies don’t always absorb all of them. This is especially true for people with gut or digestive issues like leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. Taking bone broth daily might help to support your gut to heal.
Boost Your Immune System
Studies have found that chicken soup actually can ease symptoms of upper respiratory infections in people with a cold. Chicken soup is made with pieces of chicken including bones, it contains some healing amino acids and minerals like bone broth. The longer it cooks, the higher the concentration of these nutrients. Researchers believe the amino acids in broth and stock like arginine, cysteine, and glutamine help reduce inflammation and boost our immunity. Protein play a crucial role in numerous bodily functions and maintaining our health. Amino acids and anti-inflammatory bone broth benefits make it a powerful immune-system booster. And it may help to shorten and prevent colds and some illnesses.
