This delicious drink called Bone Broth is made up of the richest protein your body can receive at any one time which is called collagen. Collagen makes up one-third of your body’s overall protein levels (Baar, 2015). According to (Kadler et al., 2007; Kjaer et al., 2009), Collagen is identified as being essential for maintaining good bone health, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is found in blood vessels, the cornea of the eye, and teeth. There are four primary types of collagen in the body’s, and they are as followed:
Type I – Responsible for approximately 90% of the body’s collagen levels that are packed with fibers. They assist with skin and bone structure, hunger cravings, cartilages, tendons, and strengthening your teeth.
Type II – Made up of loosely packed fibers that aid in elasticity in your joints.
Type III – Supports arteries, muscle fiber, and organs in the body.
Type IV – The anti-aging effects of supporting the percolation of skin texture (Couppé et al., 2008).
Delicious Bone Broth
Interestingly enough, (McGruther, 2014) suggests that bone broth is produced by simmering animal bones and cartilages for over a day. As a result of this simmering, the anecdotal source of nutrients that support weight loss, bones, skin, fingernails, and toenails are produced. From these simmering bones emerges the collagen protein that our bodies need and crave so much. The addition of apple cider vinegar and the effectiveness of simmering bone broth longer than 24-hours results in higher levels of amino acids. Instead, 72-hour simmering is even more beneficial. Bone Broth promotes good quality skin texture. It reduces wrinkles, removes toxins from the body, helps to burn away fat in the body as it helps to keep one’s stomach feeling full throughout the day or night. Each serving of Bone Broth contains minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, and silicon.
