Your digestive health

Digestive Health-Glutamine is an essential amino acid to stop you from getting sick and being run down.  A key part of Bone Broth can play a role in any weight-loss program. We know that diets high in protein allow us to feel fuller for longer, and bone broth is rich in amino acids (the building blocks of protein). More specifically glutamine found in broth plays a role in our metabolism (an effective working metabolism will aid weight loss/maintaining a healthy weight). Recent research is pointing towards a link between a healthy microbiome (a healthy digestive system full of beneficial bacteria) and a healthy weight/weight loss.

Digestive Health – Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in our body – over 60% of skeletal muscle is glutamine.

After an intense workout, glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, muscle growth and recovery. It could take up to one week for glutamine levels to return to normal. Studies have shown that L-glutamine supplementation can improve protein metabolism, increase recovery, minimize muscle breakdown and boost your stamina. Plus, glutamine is also important for a strong immune system, good sleep and a healthy metabolism. It can also help with cravings and weight loss. 

Bone Broth for Digestive Health – Glutamine

Bone Broth is taken for Digestive Health – Glutamine.  One of the huge benefits of bone broth is its wealth of nutrients – primarily amino acids and minerals for your families holistic health.

Bone broth is made by simmering the bones of chicken, beef, lamb or fish with filtered water and a little apple cider vinegar over a long period of time. The end result is a beautiful liquid that contains a wealth of anti-inflammatory nutrients, beneficial to skin and joints as well as the immune and digestive systems.

Broth is a finished, clean and nutritious product, which can be consumed on its own. Stock is a liquid that is left unseasoned for cooking, whereas broth requires no additions to taste great. Commonly, stock is packed with added preservatives to enhance flavour and lifespan.

Broth has considerably stronger nutrition properties. Broth is an all-rounder product, which is a staple in the kitchen, and a versatile product to support general health and wellness. Given broths longer cooking time (up to 24 hours), it allows for a heightened release of nutritious minerals – whereas stock is often considered a base for food only.

The extract of collagen from the connective tissues gives broth its thick, gelatinous quality. Stock is commonly sold as a watery, thin liquid whereas broth takes much longer to produce – with a long, gentle cooking time leading to a rich liquid packed with easily-digestible protein.

Lastly, broth tends to have a fuller mouth feel and richer flavour, due to the gelatine released by long-simmering bones.
