Bone Broth for Gut Health

We know that a happy gut makes a healthy gut, but what does this really mean? I’m talking beyond a little upset stomach and the occasional low-tolerance of a particular meal you probably shouldn’t have splurged on. Your gut’s health is important and plays a vital role in the overall health of the rest of your body. Isn’t that reason enough to keep it happy and healthy?

The Upset Gut

Did you know that your gut carries an enormous responsibility in the well-being of your immune system? What if I told you that your gut makes up 80% of your immune system? That’s not a number to take lightly! Is your gut upset with the way you’ve been neglecting it? Take a moment to think about the choices you’ve made lately. Are you noticing more:

  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
If your gut isn't happy, you're putting yourself at risk for several additional diseases and health risks. Have you noticed any of these changes in your health lately? It may not be evident that an unhappy gut causes them, so you want to pay closer attention to what your body is trying to tell you:
  • Anxiety
  • Eczema
  • Migraines
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

You Are What You Eat

What you consume has a direct effect on the health of your gut, so it’s time to start making those healthy decisions. A few quick tips to get your gut on its way to health and happiness include:

  • Avoiding toxins such as caffeine, alcohol, refined sugar, and whole grains
  • Avoiding antibiotics - they rid the body of harmful bacteria but also decrease the good, which help keep your gut healthy and balanced
  • Use probiotics or eat fermented foods high in probiotics

Bone Broth to the Rescue

You were waiting for me to say it, weren’t you? Drink bone broth! Have I mentioned what a great anti-inflammatory it is? Loaded with the soothing benefits of gelatin, it’s sure to help ease your gut’s inflammation and stop diarrhea. Bone broth also contains the collagen your body needs to help heal and promote a healthy digestive tract.

While a bone broth diet provides glutamine to heal and protect against a leaky gut, it works to boost your metabolism too. Glycosaminoglycans, which help recognize the good and bad bacteria, are just another amazing benefit you’ll provide your body. Additionally, it provides your gut with glycerine to help prevent IBS, and acid reflux. Glycerine also helps in the digestion of fat.
