You may have noticed that the “magic” of bone broth has become all of the rage as of late - popping up in magazine articles, on TV health and fitness shows, and in the news. And there’s a very good reason why the age-old remedy of bone broth is being touted as the latest super food: it actually works. Folks supplementing bone broth in their diets have been actually been looking and feeling better!
modPALEO is happy to announce that we are now offering bone broth so you too can reap the benefits of this super food!
When used as a supplement as part of a healthy diet, bone broth boasts some pretty amazing benefits. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should stock up on this newly touted super food:
Heals and Seals the gut: One of the best reasons to incorporate bone broth into your diet is the wonderful healing properties is has for your gut. In fact, it has been shown to not only heal “leaky gut”, but help repair (or seal) damaged areas as well. “The gelatin found in bone broth is a hydrophilic colloid. It attracts and holds liquids, including digestive juices, thereby supporting proper digestion.” (source)
Healthier skin, hair, and nails: Want to look younger? The collagen and gelatin found in bone broth work wonders for reducing wrinkles and fine lines while strengthening hair and nails.
Protect joints: Mark Sisson has noted that the hyaluronic acid found in bone broths is thought to be a pro-joint nutrient and that its supplementation has “improved the quality of life and reduced pain in patients with osteoarthritis”. (source)
Improved immune system: While bone broth is not a cure-all and will not provide immunity from the flu or the various “bugs” running rampant around school or the workplace, it will help strengthen your immune system so you can fight off illnesses and recover faster. (source) And bone broth is a great way to replenish electrolytes and nourish your body with protein when you can’t keep much food down!
Better sleep: Step away from the Nyquil and reach for bone broth, which is rich in both glycine and magnesium. While we have discussed how magnesium functions as a natural sleep aid, it turns out glycine is also a great natural sleep agent.
Provides essential amino acids: While your body produces its own amino acids, many people benefit from incorporating supplemental amino acids in their diets, especially those who are sick, injured, and/or active (sounds like most of us!). Bone broth serves as a fantastic source of essential amino acids, including proline (aids in collagen production), glycine (digestive health), arginine (kidney function), and glutamine (gut health).

Fights inflammation: Those essential amino acids we just mentioned? Those play a key role in recovery from injuries and illness. So if you’re nursing an injury or suffer from an inflammatory diseas, give bone broth a try. “Supplemental dietary arginine helps speed wound healing by supporting the formation of collagen. This may be through conversion to proline (although supplemental proline does not have the same effect) or through some other pathway. Glutamine also helps reduce healing time in hospital patients, and recovery time in athletes on an intense training regimen.” (source)
You may be asking yourself, what exactly do you do with bone broth? You can really use it with anything! Many use it as a base for soups or to add flavor while cooking vegetables, but really it’s great as a sipping broth just on its own!
