Broth and Gut Health
In every pot of a well made bone broth is an abundance of “essential” sugars and amino acids which repair the hugely important defence barrier in your gastro-intestinal tract.
Slowly simmering bones for hours breaks down collagenous protein into gelatin, which provides the amino acids the body needs to boost its collagen production.
Properly made broth is also full of huge, water-trapping molecules - also known as “essential” sugars called proteoglycans which wind over, under, and around the collagenous fiber networks.
Together the collagen and proteoglycans are the “glue” we call connective tissue which is needed to build a barrier in our gastrointestinal tract and prevent the absorption and spread of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, microorganisms, and hard to digest dietary proteins.
With the increased exposure we have to problematic foods and toxins these days - it makes the regular inclusion of MADE for MOTHERS broth to a healthful diet more vital than ever
