If this superfood is so beneficial, why are so many people missing out?
By Dr. Josh Axe
The first brothless generation
In ancient times, bone broth was a practical essential that was a byproduct of meal preparation. In fact, our ancestors likely would never have consumed meat without the broth. But with widespread changes in farming, agriculture and food consumption with the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, this staple superfood all but disappeared.
Today, natural health experts are calling this generation the first “brothless generation” because just 50 years ago, people were regularly consuming bone broth as part of their diets. It’s possible that those who came before us didn’t realize how much they benefited from this simple broth. They probably didn’t even think about it. But today, we are largely "missing out" due to a lack of nutrients from many sources — including bone broth.
For example, beef bone broth has important proteins, minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. Plus, collagen types I & III and several amino acids.
Likewise, chicken bone broth has important proteins, minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus PLUS collagen type II, which also inherently features chondroitin, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid. Additionally, it, too, features an array of amino acids.
The collagen, minerals and cofactors in bone broth contribute to desirable external benefits like supporting healthy skin and more.
And even more importantly, bone broth helps support the body from the inside out, starting in the gut.
A gift for the gut
There’s a reason that a bone broth fast is often the first thing recommended by many natural health experts.
“It’s good for the gut because it has hydrolyzed proteins, or predigested, easy-to-utilize proteins,” says Jordan Rubin, co-founder of Ancient Nutrition. Basically, your body doesn’t have to work hard to digest it (unlike plant, meat or dairy proteins).
Even better? Generally, there is a wide belief in the natural health community that bone broth may also give your daily probiotic supplement a leg up. “We don’t believe bone broth is providing the gut with probiotics, but we believe it’s causing the internal environment to be ideal for the growth of your own probiotics,” says Rubin says. “That’s why we believe it’s great for the gut, because it helps to balance your microbiome.”
And it’s been shown time and time again that the amino acids and cofactors in bone broth are beneficial for the gut, which, in turn, can support whole body health.
Many people start bone broth for the gut benefits and are pleasantly surprised with the skin-supporting benefits they get as a result. That’s because of the collagen types found in beef bone broth: types I and III are excellent supporters of skin, hair and nails. The same applies for the collagen type II found in chicken bone broth.
Bone broth has many benefits. It’s a simple, straightforward food. The ingredients it takes to make it are not extremely hard to find or particularly expensive.
So why are so many people still missing out?
The 48-hour problem
The benefits of consuming bone broth seem endless. It’s highly effective and it tastes good. It’s not hard to work into a daily routine.
But often when people start out on a new bone broth protocol, they quickly realize that making bone broth takes hours and hours of time, and to repeat the process over and over becomes cumbersome.
First, it requires finding the bones, tendons and ligaments that are going to simmer. Then, the ingredients must be simmered for at least 12 to 24 hours—sometimes as long as 36 to 48 hours or more.
That’s a long time. And for people looking to get multiple servings of bone broth per day, it can feel daunting.
The Bone Broth Protein™ Solution
Simmering bones and tendons does not fit into many modern lifestyles, regardless of the promised benefits. But as more and more people discover the benefits of bone broth, demand for a convenient way to consume it has skyrocketed.
Enter: Bone Broth Protein, the protein powder that is true to its name. It begins as a true, traditionally made bone broth, and then is concentrated into a high-quality powder providing the benefits of real bone broth—without the time spent cooking it OR the mess and clean up.
It contains minimal ingredients and flavored with natural ingredients only.
Unlike other forms of protein, Bone Broth Protein is considered "serum soluble." That means that it is extremely easy on the gut and to assimilate. When the body is ingesting bone broth, it’s getting access to important and diverse minerals, amino acids and even protein in a highly absorbable package.
Do you know what kinds of proteins are not serum soluble? Whey protein, egg protein, soy protein and even plant-based proteins like rice protein, hemp protein and pea protein.
Bone Broth Protein truly stands apart from the rest.
A flavor for everyone
Bone Broth Protein is a powder from the concentrate of REAL bone broth. Ancient Nutrition carries dozens of flavors and varieties for every palate.
