So you might have heard about bone broth right, or maybe not?
My first thoughts were: ‘urgh’, you are kidding right? But, I soon discovered that there is so much more to good quality #bonebroth. And it’s truly delicious, trust me on this one.
How is this good for your health?
Dr Amy Meyers wrote that the gut is the gateway to your health. The gut is the complex system that involves every part of your body when it comes to digestion. Signs of good gut health are:
- You feel good after eating
- You do not experience gas, cramps or bloating
- You do not need any medication or experience acid reflux systems
When your gut health is compromised, you may develop the condition known as leaky gut and your immune system is suffering.
Bone broth is one of the key foods that can heal leaky gut and plays a major part in your metabolism. The main ingredient found in bone broth is L-glutamine and is classified as an amino acid, which is a building block of protein.
7 proven benefits of L-Glutamine
It supports gastrointestinal health (GUT)
It helps with brain function as it is a neurotransmitter, which help memory and concentration
Improves metabolism – yes it helps with weight loss
Promotes muscle growth
Improve your skin, hair and nails
Supports the immune system (Did you know that many years ago before the pharmaceutical industry flooded the world with drugs, bone broth were prescribed by doctors to support the immune system)
It helps to cut down cravings for sugar and alcohol
There are many supplement forms of glutamine available on the market, however we cannot absorb this effectively through supplements only, we need to absorb L-Glutamine from food and there is no better way than to this with bone broth.
Try this #bonebroth recipe at home, it is so easy to make, delicious (I promise you) and won’t put you out of your pocket.
Please note that the glutamine strength increases with longer cooking time. An import factor to keep in mind is the body’s level of Vitamin B12, this helps to absorb and convert glutamine effectively in the body.

How much to consume per day:
Dr Axe is recommending 2-5mg per day for normal people. I usually consume half a cup of bone broth per day and I know that my immune system will be supported all the way.
