Three ways bone broth can make you fit­ter, hap­pier and health­ier

Mens Health (Australia) - - Useful stuff -

1 / Flask and you’ll re­ceive

Broth, do you even lift? Why, yes, ac­tu­ally. The gelatin in broth acts as a ‘pro­teins­parer,’ which means it in­creases the bioavail­abil­ity of pro­tein you con­sume with it. Pack some in your gym bag and sip it on the way home from train­ing af­ter chug­ging your shake.

2 / For­tify your de­fences

When a cold de­scends, many peo­ple turn to tea, maybe with some im­mune-aid­ing gin­ger plopped in. Opt for a cup of broth in­stead: you can keep the gin­ger, while adding ex­tra flu-busters like gar­lic and thyme, which you’d never dare stir into your cuppa.

3 / Go with your gut

One of the rea­sons peo­ple go on juice cleanses is to give their di­ges­tive sys­tem a break. But you don’t have to limit your­self to lemon wa­ter. Broth is low in fi­bre, mak­ing it equally gen­tle, and its gelatin helps to re­pair your sys­tem.
