Bone broth soup
One super healing food that everyone needs to start drinking today is yummy bone broth soup. Beef, chicken, fish, lamb, buffalo or whatever makes your taste buds sing, this culinary healing delight needs to be a stable in your household.
Growing up, my parents always made homemade Chinese bone broth soups. I remember our stove top always having a pot of soup brewing with creepy bones and medicinal Chinese herbs…and YES, we were suppose to devour this time honored traditional broth that was cultivated with culinary for 48 hours with huge smiles. Rolling our eyes every time my Dad would lecture us on the healing properties of the soup. I now reflect back and wish my parents were alive today to witness me not only making bone broth but blogging about it too. I now have adopted making this ancient traditional healing elixir for my family.
This blog is dedicated to my mom and Dad…thank you.
Digestibility- Bone broth is easily digested and soothing to the digestive system, unlike many other foods, which can be difficult to fully break down and assimilate. After all, a food is only beneficial, if we can absorb the nutrients (outside of undigested fiber).
Heals a leaky gut which is one of the root causes to autoimmune diseases. The gelatin in bone broth protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and helps aid in the digestion of nutrients. Collagen/gelatin and the amino acid proline, glutamine and arginine protect and heal the mucosal lining of the digestive track and help seal these openings in the gut lining and support gut integrity. 1
Overcome food intolerances and allergies and balance the immune system. By healing a leaky gut you can resolve some of the issues related to food intolerances and allergies due to undigested food particles seeping into your blood stream due to a leaky gut and triggering an immune response. Broth supports healing the gut lining, preventing this issue. 2, 3
Reduces length of colds and flu. Chicken soup during a respiratory infection reduces the number of white blood cells, which are the cells that cause flu and cold symptoms. There’s a reason that grandma prescribed chicken soup when you’re feeling under the weather.4
