Bone broth has been used historically as a cure-all for
everything from depression to the common cold. Chicken
soup has even been said to be good for the soul. Jewish
Penicillin chicken soup was traditionally made from chicken
bones and cartilage, and was lauded by many physicians,
including 12th century rabbi and  respected physician
Mosheh ben Maimon, for its health benefits and its ability to
cure upper respiratory infections.  Ancient Chinese medicine
practitioners also harped on the healing liquid as being a
means of sustaining “jing” or one's “life essence”.

So what is it about bone broth that has withstood the test of
time? Could there be scientific reasons behind why this
super food has developed such a healthy reputation? Here
are seven health benefits that may just have you boiling
bones at home in no time.


1.
Bone Broth May Inhibit the Growth of Cancer Cells

Cartilage is found in the joints between bones where it
absorbs physical shock and decreases friction as bones move
against one another.

Antiangiogenesis factors are chemicals that are secreted
from cartilage that inhibit the growth of blood vessels.
Anitiangiogenesis chemicals have begun to be studied as a
means of helping treat cancer due to this unique quality.

A 2012 study conducted at Johns Hopkins University
illustrated how the antiangiogenesis agent, itraconazole,
helped increase the effectiveness of the chemotherapy agent
cisplatin in combating cancer cells.

Tumors are able to grow in size by secreting chemicals that
encourage the growth of blood vessels. These new blood
vessels supply the tumor with nutrients which allow it to
increase its size. Since antiangiogenesis factors inhibit blood
vessel growth, it follows that increasing the body's amount
of antiangiogenesis factors decreases a tumor's ability to
feed itself by generating new blood vessels. (Read more

2.
Bone Broth Can Help You Sleep































One of the main components of bone is the protein collagen.
Of the components of collagen, one third is made up of the
amino acid glycine.

An interesting properties of glycine is its ability to potentially
increase the quality of sleep of an individual. A 2007 study
conducted by Doctor Kentaro Inagawa of the Japanese
Health Institute for Health Fundamentals found that subjects
are able to achieve a more restful night's sleep if their
glycine levels are increased.

Throughout the study, patients were given 3 gram doses of
glycine before they went to sleep. Inagawa and his team
then used a polysomnography test to monitor the heart beat,
eye movement, brain functions and muscle activity of each
patient. This data was then collected and analyzed in order
to determine the patients sleep quality and efficacy.

The study determined that not only were patients who
ingested glycine able to achieve a more complete night's
sleep, but the patients daytime cognitive functions were also
greatly increased. (Read more about

3.
Bone Broth Is An Effective Supplement for Those With
Liver Problems

In addition to helping you achieve a restful night's sleep,
glycine can also be used to help the liver remove toxins from
the body.

A 1998 study conducted at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill by Ming Yin tested the effect that increasing
glycine levels had on an liver injuries caused by alcoholism.
The study concluded that increasing glycine levels also
increased the likelihood that a liver that was severely
damaged by alcohol consumption would recover.

4.
Bone Broth Can Help Digestion

A 1982 study conducted by A. Wald and S. A. Adibi of the
American Physiological Society found that increasing blood
glycine levels could also cause the stomach to release more
gastric acid, which in turn would help speed up digestion.
Furthermore, increasing stomach acid also makes it easier for
the body to break down essentials minerals more efficiently.

5.
Bone Broth Can Help Stabilize Glucose Levels

Glycine may also be able to help regulate blood glucose
levels. This is especially pertinent to those with Type II
diabetes as a 2002 study conducted by MC Gannon of the
Metabolic Research Laboratory at the Minneapolis VA Medical
Center found that ingesting glycine stimulates an increase in
insulin levels and an overall removal of glucose from the
blood stream.  This stabilization can reduce your risk for
developing
diabetes.

6.
Bone Broth Can Be Used to Treat Arthritis

The protein collagen, found in cartilage, ligaments, skin,
tendons and bone marrow, is also an effective supplement
for those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and
osteoarthritis.

A 2009 clinical study conducted by DC Crowley of Canadian
based KGK Synergize Incorporated, found that collagen
accounted for a reduction in the Western Ontario McMaster
Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score for patients suffering
from osteoarthritis of the knee.

The WOMAC is designed to test a patient using a series of
physical tasks, such as walking, climbing stairs, standing,
lying down, bending and getting in and out of a car, in order
to assess their pain, stiffness and overall physical function
capabilities.

In most cases, the WOMAC score was reduced by half over a
90 day period for those patients who had received daily
doses of collagen throughout study.

7.
Bone Broth Can Help Speed Up The Body's Natural Healing
Process

The naturally occurring minerals that are found in bones
include calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulfur, fluoride,
sodium and potassium. These minerals are essential for
developing and sustaining strong bones. These minerals can
be used to increase the natural healing process of bones
when ingested by means of a bone broth.

A 2010 study conducted by Mahmood A. Aljumaily at the
University of Mosul in Iraq found that daily doses of bone
broth helped increase the rapidity with which bones were
able to heal themselves. A computerized tomography (CT)
scan revealed an increase in the bone healing process after a
period of 5 weeks.

The bone broth for the study was prepared with nothing
more than bones and water. The broth was cooked for
approximately four hours and then refrigerated overnight
before administered.
