This was what Hippocrates discovered over 2500 years ago however it has only recently, in the last decade or so, come under the spotlight when it comes to our general health.
So what does it mean to have a healthy gut? Pro-biotics and pre-biotics are key to maintaining a healthy gut and we can ingest them in our foods and in additional supplements also. One of the popular foods that has come into the spotlight for gut health is bone broth.
Bone broth is made using both meaty joints and bones. It is simmered for hours to enable the protein, vitamins and minerals and collagen to infuse into the liquid. It can be consumed like sipping tea or used as a base for soups as you like.
If you are looking to make your very own bone broth, we recommend this recipe that we love from the nourished kitchen.
Many people sip bone broth or begin making it at home, because they’ve heard that it may support digestion, fortify the immune system, or help reverse visible signs of aging. And while bone broth is an excellent source of collagen and a nutritious foods, its specific benefits are less clear.
Bone broth is rich in a protein called gelatin, made from dissolved collagen. Collagen is found in connective tissue. While the amount of protein will vary depending on volume of water used, types of bones and length of cooking, most bone broth contains about 10 grams of protein per 8-oz serving.
It’s also rich in the amino acids like glycine and proline. Glycine is an important neurotransmitter that has anti-inflammatory properties and supports the immune system (1). Proline, along with other key nutrients like vitamin C, helps to support healthy joint health and collagen production (2).
Bone broth contains B vitamins like niacin and riboflavin, both of which play a role in metabolism. They also help your body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy. (3,4)
Bone broth is rich in glucosamine and chondroitin, two nutrients that help support joint health. (5)
Bone broth contains trace amounts of minerals, but, despite popular claims, it is not a good source of calcium, phosphorus or other minerals.

A Lake Purumbete abattoir has been awarded the first Victorian licence to process kangaroo meat for sale for human consumption.
Castle Estate's works, near Camperdown, already processes venison and rabbit, as well as kangaroo from interstate suppliers, alongside cattle, sheep and pigs.
This year's state government Kangaroo Harvesting Program will include meat for human consumption, with a quota of 95,680 kangaroos, an increase of 37,780 from last year.
Castle managing director Steve Castle said it was a natural progression, given so many animals were being harvested for pet food.
"Other parts of the country have also been harvesting kangaroo for human consumption for quite some time," Mr Castle said.
"It is a similar production method to the deer.
"Obviously the kangaroo is a lot smaller than the Sambar venison that we have already been doing, but it is not a difficult change from a processing point of view."
He said he'd made inquiries to see if the government was considering allowing the sale of kangaroo meat for human consumption.
"It was already in process, they were already in the stages of working towards this."
Mr Castle said the numbers he was processing were low, at the moment.
'We are talking in the hundreds, not thousands, but it gives us the opportunity to continue to establish that market," he said.
Castle sold kangaroo meat directly to consumers, through home delivery, and the hospitality trade.
"Kangaroo has been used in hospitality for quite a while now, so there is already somewhat of an established trade.
"There are more and more consumers out there, who are willing to give these sorts of proteins a go."
Kangaroos would be supplied by registered field harvesters, with a strong focus on animal welfare and hygiene.
"Food safety and animal welfare are the two key components of the supply chain," Mr Castle said.
"I am not suggesting it will ever be like beef or lamb, but slowly and surely there is a market there.
"If we can get it to market, at a competitive rate, there will be an appetite there for it.
"When you are a small business, you have to have lots of different avenues and revenue streams; this compliments some of our other offerings."
