Bone Broth Goods:
- Gelatin: aids in digestion, acts as a protein sparer (due to glycine and proline)
- Collagen and Cartilage: help decrease inflammation
- Marrow: extremely nutrient dense and contains high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and lipids, which are involved in the production of white blood cells. Also, marrow will boost the immune system by carrying oxygen to the cells in the body, and acts as a transporter of other nutrients in other nutrient dense foods, i.e., garlic, cayenne, coriander oil and sea salt.
The bone broth is the primary reason for the healing power and it is not just chicken bones/cartilage/tissues. Many beneficial bone broth soups are made from turkey, cow,lamb,venison and fish.
This broth is the perfect environment to transport beneficial nutrients from carrots, oregano, spinach, onions, garlic, mushrooms,potatoes, squash, oats, celery, turmeric, peas, etc.
Studies found that chicken soup boosted immunity by effecting neutrophils, which are part of the immune system, and the soup helped increase movement of nasal mucus and improved the function of the protective cilia in the nose.
