1. Nourish Your Gut
Bone broth is full of gelatin and collagen, which soothes the intestinal tract and helps heal leaky gut, aka intestinal permeability. With stress, diet, alcohol, caffeine and NSAIDS wreaking havoc on our intestines, anything and everything we can do to help repair the gut is beneficial, as a healthy intestinal tract is essential to overall good health.
2. Boost Your Immune System
Yes, Grandma was right about chicken soup. A traditional folk remedy for colds and flus, bone broth provides a rich array of nutrients (especially gelatin) which support your immune system. Cysteine, an amino acid found in chicken, helps to thin mucus so it can be expelled more easily. When fighting a cold, make a chicken broth with added spices or peppers to make it spicy to help keep the mucus moving.
3. Increase Bio-available Minerals
As a result of soil degradation, the mineral content of our foods is reduced, and many of us have compromised absorption due to poor gut health. Yet minerals are critical to so many bodily functions and impact everything from our bones to our mood and our sleep. Supplying calcium, magnesium, potassium, silicon, sulfur and phosphorous, bone broth provides an excellent means of boosting your mineral intake.
4. Promote Healthy Skin
A rich source of skin-supporting amino acids glycine and proline, along with collagen, the ultimate skin food, bone broth can improve skin elasticity and fight wrinkles.
5. Reduce Inflammation
Glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, and gelatin support your joints, bones, and reduce inflammation throughout your body.
Making a Broth
1,5kg beef bones
Apple Cider Vinegar - 2 Tablespoons
Optional Ingredients to Increase Flavor – Dried Bay Leaves, Onions, Carrots, Celery or Fresh Sage
Free Range Meat
free rangeProsciutto is made from either a pig's or a wild boar's ham (hind leg or thigh). The process of making prosciutto can take anywhere from nine months to two years, depending on the size of the ham.Today, the ham is first cleaned, salted, and left for about two months. During this time the ham is pressed, gradually and carefully so as to avoid breaking the bone, to drain all blood left in the meat.
Next, it is washed several times to remove the salt, and is hung in a dark, well-ventilated environment. The surrounding air is important to the final quality of the ham; the best results are obtained in a cold climate. The ham is then left until dry. The amount of time this takes varies, depending on the local climate and size of the ham. When the ham is completely dry, it is hung to air, either at room temperature or in a controlled environment, for up to eighteen months.
Obesity Epidemic Started as People Reduced Their Intake of Red Meat and High-Fat Dairy products
Soulcare Sells Nitrate Free Meat - Why?
Bacon - pork bellyMost bacon that you purchase at the grocery store contains nitrates, which in the body can convert to nitrites. Nitrites have been linked to cancer, so avoiding nitrates may be a wise decision on your part. But how to get the bacon you love without the added nitrates you don't?
Nitrites and nitrates belong to a class of chemicals called nitrosamines that are created by a chemical reaction between nitrites or other proteins. They've long been shown to be harmful to both humans and animals. In fact, more than 90 percent of nitrosamines have been shown in tests to be carcinogens. However, they are allowed to be freely added to the US food supply. In fact, if you pick up a processed food package such as luncheon meat or bacon, certain beers and some cheese products, you are likely to find that they contain these chemicals.
In addition, exposure to nitrates and nitrites are widely found in fertilizers, pesticides and cosmetics. Exposure also occurs through the manufacturing and processing of rubber and latex products.
Nitrosamines are problematic because they become reactive at the cellular level and that means they can alter gene expression and cause DNA damage. The new research suggests that the cellular alterations that occur as a result of nitrosamine exposure create a process much like accelerated aging in the body and that could spur on the development of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Type 2 diabetes mellitus."All of these diseases are associated with increased insulin resistance and DNA damage.
Their prevalence rates have all increased radically over the past several decades and show no sign of plateau. Because there has been a relatively short time interval associated with the dramatic shift in disease incidence and prevalence rates, we believe this is due to exposure-related rather than genetic etiologies," Dr. de la Monte stated.
Can CoQ10 Save Your Vision?
CoQ10. The only good food source is the organs of free-range cattle and wild game. CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrientResearchers in Hungary wanted to look at the effect mitochondrial dysfunction plays in developing AMD. So they designed a clinical trial to find out how early treatment with nutrients known to improve mitochondrial function, like CoQ10, would have on people with weakening eyesight.
At the end of a study of more than 100 people, the researchers found a huge improvement in those who took the nutrients including CoQo10 for all four parameters of eyesight that they measured.
The people who got the antioxidants including CoQ10 had a 23% decrease in the area of their sight affected by AMD, while the placebo group showed a 13% growth.2
