The healthy effects of bone broth are innumerable.
An ancient remedy, backed by modern science
For centuries, cultures around the world have boiled bones to make broth, relying on this healing elixir for a variety of ailments.
In recent times, scientists have learned more about the specific things within a well-made broth that make your body function better, things like gelatin, which improves digestion, strengthens joints and helps the body absorb protein.
Lean, mean protein machine
A well-made broth offers all the benefits of meat without the bulk. Our broth is loaded with protein (10 grams per cup of our beef or signature Hearth broth; 7 grams per cup of chicken broth) and delivers it in a way that your body can rapidly absorb.
In liquid form, these proteins are broken down into valuable amino acids like proline, glycine, glutamine, and arginine. Your body needs these important building blocks for healthy skin, bones and joints.
Low carb comfort
A steamy, rich cup of Brodo is one of the most comforting foods you can consume. Unlike other popular comfort foods, Brodo contains very few carbohydrates (5g per cup).
You get all the savory satisfaction of Mom’s usual meat-and-potato staples, without the guilt.
Make a meal of it
A daily serving of our broth is so satisfying and nutritious that you might decide to skip lunch. Good move. Brodo works great as a meal replacement, even better than other drink-based diet regimens.
Our broth has more protein and fewer carbs than green juice, and is less likely to cause blood-sugar levels to spike.
Trust your gut
Brodo is one of the best things you can consume to maintain a healthy gut, which is essential to overall wellness. The gelatin in Brodo contains glutamine, which effectively plugs the holes in the lining of the digestive tract like spackle on a pitted wall.
The gelatin in our broth also helps during digestion, making it easier to break down food and absorb nutrients.
Broth, not Botox
Brodo is a beauty product. Healthy skin requires collagen, a crucial protein found in the tendons, ligaments and other odd bits of the beef and poultry we use. When we cook our bones, that collagen breaks down into gelatin, which is easier for the body to digest.
Some people pay a lot of money to get collagen directly injected into the skin. Drinking gelatin-rich bone broth is an easier and more natural way to promote smooth, supple skin. It’s good for healthy hair and nails too.
Nature’s antidote to last night
Brodo is a natural detox aid. The glycine in our broth supports your liver’s ability to remove toxins, ranging from pesticides and mercury to prescription drugs and alcohol.
Glycine is also a key building block for glutathione, a helpful antioxidant for anti-aging, fighting chronic disease, and cleansing your liver.
Fights colds and infections
The cold-fighting power of a good chicken soup is not just some old wives’ tale. A well-made chicken bone broth contains cysteine, an amino acid that has been shown to thin the mucus in your lungs and make it less sticky, so you can expel it more easily.
A good broth also contains other immunity-boosting compounds like glutamine and carnosine.
