Bone Broth: Ben­e­fits or Brouhaha?

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Hot & Healthy -

Bone broth (lit­er­ally, bones boiled in wa­ter) is be­ing touted as the next big mag­i­cal health po­tion. Made pop­u­lar by the Pa­leo diet and by nyc chef Marco canora’s broth takeout win­dow Brodo, en­thu­si­asts claim it is a great source of amino acids, col­la­gen, and min­er­als.

noth­ing new—many cul­tures tra­di­tion­ally have broths to cure ail­ments: the car­ribean cow foot soup, the Korean the Ja­panese and even the filipino all thick and creamy with fats and my­globin from the bone mar­row. While no sci­en­tific stud­ies prove it yet, bone broth is said to sup­port di­ges­tion and detox­i­fi­ca­tion, pro­tect joints, strengthen skin, nails, and hair through its col­la­gen, and sup­port im­mu­nity through its high con­cen­tra­tion of min­er­als. As­so­ciate pro­fes­sor and bio­med­i­cal sci­en­tist Dr. Wil­liam h. Percy says swal­low­ing col­la­gen doesn’t turn into col­la­gen in or be­tween your bones. how­ever, he says bone broth may still con­tain both es­sen­tial and inessen­tial amino acids which your body can use to aug­ment and sup­port its var­i­ous parts. food sci­en­tist Dr. Kan­tha Shelke con­curs and says it can still be a good sup­ple­ment for pro­tein-sourced amino acids and min­er­als.
