Bone broth, the elixir of life?
Here are the main benefits that I’ve come across.
1. Heal and seal your gut. According to Jill Grunewald, a holistic nutrition coach and founder of Healthful Elements, a cup a day works miracles for leaky gut syndrome but it’s also good for protecting non-leaky guts. The gelatin in the bone broth (found in the knuckles, feet, and other joints) helps seal up holes in intestines. This helps cure chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerances.
2. Protect your joints. Taking glucosamine supplements to help with joint pain has been common knowledge for years, but it turns out that bone broth has glucosamine too. But unlike pills, the broth also includes a host of other goodies that help keep your joints happy, healthy, and pain-free. The chondroitin sulfate in bone broth has been shown to help prevent osteoarthritis.
Think magnesium, think millet.
It’s not everyday I cook millet, in fact I always thought it rather bland. My mind was changed when I made Oliver McCabe’s delicious FoodFuel Veggie Bake where millet makes up one layer with vegetables, lentils and a sweet potato topping – yummy!
