Bone broth is loaded with essential amino acids, three of which are glycine, proline and l-glutamine. Let’s review how each of these vital nutrients can boost your health.


Glycine helps create muscle tissue and converts glucose into energy and regulating blood sugar levels.  It is essential for maintaining a healthy nervous system and helps improve memory, aids in sleep and combats depression.  Important for the digestive system and for regulating bile used to digest fats.  It also supports our detoxification processes.  It also works with proline to help repair tissues and has anti-inflammatory properties.


Proline is the primary amino acid needed for the production of collagen and cartilage.  It keeps muscles and joints flexible and helps reduce sagging and wrinkling of aging skin.  Proline helps develop and maintain muscle tissue and healthy skin and is essential for healing damaged tissue and reducing inflammation.


L-Glutamine the most common amino acid found in our muscles and is essential for their growth and maintenance.  It is also an important source of energy for the nervous system.  L-Glutamine also supports a healthy digestive tract by creating a balance between the acid and alkaline levels in the body.  It is essential to the formation of cells that function in the immune system.

Bone broth also contains plenty of healthy fat and important nutrients like calcium, magnesium, magnesium, and potassium which are healing nutrients all of which are broken down into a form that is easily absorbed and used by the body.

It is easy to make your own bone broth.  Just remember that the quality of your ingredients will produce the quality of health that you want.  Using organically-raised beef or chicken and vegetables in your broth is the key to creating this super healing food. For instructions click here.
