Would you consider swapping your afternoon cup of peppermint tea or perhaps your bedtime cup of chamomile for a mug of bone broth? Before you answer that question, hear me out. While herbal tea is a wonderful home remedy for an upset stomach, sore throat or insomnia, bone broth also has incredible homeopathic qualities not many people know about.
Bone broth is loaded with collagen, a protein naturally found in your skin, cartilage, and bones. As we age, we lose bone mass and collagen is proven to improve our bone density, and help produce new bone tissue. Pretty impressive! So sipping bone broth is great for your complexion, hair growth, and joint health. Some argue that it even reduces wrinkles and cures dry skin.
Bone broth also contains the protein gelatin which is key for your digestion and gut health. A warm cup of broth is the perfect beverage for anyone with IBD, IBS, colitis, and other GI issues. It helps repair the intestinal lining and reduce the inflammation in our digestive organs–so important for your gut!
Finally, bone broth contains the amino acid glycine which is a natural sedative, and helps reduce feelings of anxiety. Bone broth is a common aid for insomnia and promotes sound sleep, making a mug of bone broth the perfect addition to your bedtime ritual.
