I’m not sure about you, but I’ve been hearing an awful lot about a new trend in health: Bone broth. As a person who well understands the benefits of shilajit and other health practices, I often look at the latest health trends, and how they stack up (see my latest post on the benefits of oil pulling). Today, we’ll explore bone broth, and whether or not it is a good choice to boost your health!

What is Bone Broth?

Bone broth is exactly what it sounds like – a broth made from boiling bones. It can be the base for a soup, or you can drink it straight from a mug. People all over the world are joining in on this trend – it is a staple in the LA Laker’s team diet. But, what are the supposed benefits to this strange drink?

The Benefits of Bone Broth

Much like shilajit, bone broth has a long history. It has been a part of ancient food traditions in cultures long past. And, when you stop and think about it, it really isn’t anything new: grandmas have been making their own beef broth for hundreds of years. It is an excellent, easy source of nutrition, because it is in liquid form (easy to consume), and us chock-full of nutrients. Here are a few of the benefits I could find from my research:

  • What is bone broth?Gelatin: The gelatin found in bone broth can strengthen your nails and hair.
  • Collagen: The collagen found in bone broth can smooth wrinkles in your skin.
  • Amino Acids: This broth is full of amino acids such as proline, glycine, and many more.
  • Gut Health: The collagen and gelatin help improve gut health, while the amino acids soothe inflammation.

As with many health trends, it can be difficult to know whether or not a diet change will have a big impact on your health or not. But, giving something a try may just improve your life. For those who take shilajit on a daily basis, the benefits could not be better. Maybe this broth can help you as you heal your gut, or work to improve your nutrition!
