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.
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 the 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.
