Bone Broth for Gastric Health Support
October 30 2018
Bone broth provides nutrients to many different body systems and can also be used to enhance gastrointestinal health. It has been used for thousands of years in countries around the world as a natural remedy for many different ailments.
Gluten sensitivity, infections, stress and toxin buildups can all damage the delicate protective mucosal lining of the digestive tract. The deterioration results in a condition known as leaky gut. As the lining now has increased permeability, food particles, microbes and harmful chemical compounds are able to pass through the stomach lining. The body's immune system perceives the substances as an attack and responds accordingly, which leads to inflammation and pain. The gelatin and other compounds naturally found in bone broth help heal stomach lining.
This homemade broth is wonderful for promoting gastrointestinal health. As an added benefit, California Gold Nutrition BoneBrothUP is blended with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C for healthy, hydrated skin. It is also rich in amino acids that help boost skin, hair and nail health. This powdered broth does not contain gluten, GMOs or soy.
