From a healthy gut to radiant skin and a boosted immune system, learn which health benefits of bone broth are worth the buzz, and find ways to eat and cook with this new trendy food.
This fall, there’s a new trendy hot beverage filling mugs across America, and experts are already singing its health praises. So what is this magical elixir? Bone broth. There’s even an entire shop devoted to bone broth in New York City, called Brodo, where you can get to-go cups of broth when you’re on the go—think Starbucks, but savory.
Magic is what one nutritionist called bone broth when I first heard about the emerging food trend. We were discussing leaky gut syndrome, a condition that bone broth is said to help, and the food pro told me that her clients who drink bone broth have reported vast improvements with gut issues. Sounds pretty magical.
2Protect your joints
Taking glucosamine supplements has long been used as the first line of treatment for people with joint pain, but it turns out that bone broth has glucosamine, too. Unlike pills, the broth offers other nutritional and health benefits that can help reduce pain. Chondroitin sulfate, which is found in the cartilage that protects joints, for example, has been shown to help prevent osteoarthritis.
