Mineral/Collagen/Gelatin Rich Chicken Broth
Collagen is a complex structural protein that makes up nearly 80% of the body’s skin! It forms a mesh-like framework that gives strength, texture and shape to the skin, while helping to retain moisture within the deep dermal layers.
During the aging process, collagen naturally breaks down and diminishes over time – resulting in dry, thin and less resilient skin. Loss of collagen is believed to be one of the primary causes of fine lines and wrinkles that occur in naturally-aged skin.
Collagen is a building block of the body, providing support for the growth and repair of skin, teeth, bones, ligaments and tendons. Traditional diets were naturally rich in amino acids and other nutrients that supported the production of collagen. Now you can experience the same benefits and help your body to stay youthful and strong by reincorporating bone broth into your diet.
Collagen is made up of several important amino acids, alanine, hydroxyproline, proline and glycine. Unsurprisingly, one of the best sources of the amino acids proline and glycine is from the cartilage, hides, and bones of animals. Busy gobbling down individually-wrapped boneless chicken breasts and hastily slapped together patties of lean ground meat however, Americans today consume a high proportion of muscle meats that are not rich in these amino acids.
Bone broth helps prevent and lessens the symptoms of colds. Not only does it contain vital and trace minerals in a form the body can easily absorb, but the gelatin found in bone broth assists in neutralizing any intestinal pathogens. It also helps slow and stop diarrhea.
The marrow extracted from the bones also boosts immunity. White blood cells, the cells in our bodies that control our immunity and handle infections, are made in the bone marrow. While cells usually break down during cooking, all of their components are still there and help our bodies build new white blood cells. Also, the onions, ginger, garlic and herbs added to the stock are universally known immune boosters and common cold remedies.
Minerals in broth are in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur, and trace minerals.
