Bone broth supplies some key nutrients that make it unique as a protein supplement. These nutrients are responsible for its incredible joint and gut healing properties.

Collagen – The main structural protein in the body, it helps form connective tissue and seals the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract. This gel-like protein also covers and holds our bones together, allowing them to smoothly glide.How-to-maintain-a-healthy-skin

Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) – These include glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin sulfate and maintain and support collagen and elastin between bones and various fibers. GAGs support digestive health by restoring the intestinal lining

Glutamine – The most abundant amino acid in the human body protects and repairs Active-Rehab-Bone-and-Joint-Health-National-Awareness-Weekthe gut lining and provides metabolic fuel for cells in the small intestine. Glutamine also improves metabolism and aides in muscle building.

Glycine – Prevents breakdown of muscle tissue and is involved in the production of bile salts and the antioxidant Glutathione. Glycine is also a neurotransmitter that improves sleep, memory, and performance.

Hyaluronic Acid – A major component of connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and eyes and comprises the synovial fluid in joints.

Proline – Helps regenerate cartilage and heal joints, reduces cellulite and makes skin more supple.
