5 Occasions You Should Drink Bone Broth That You Didn't Know About
01: You are following the 5:2 Diet
The 5:2 Diet created by Dr Michael Mosley is without a doubt the most popular diet of this century. It's backed by scientific evidence and linked with health benefits associated with intermittent fasting. However, one of the biggest challenges faced by those following this diet is knowing what to eat on the fast days that won’t exceed the calorie restricted quota or leave you feeling absolutely ravenous. With just 35 calories per serve and a good hit of protein to keep you full, this is the perfect fast day fuel.
02: You are having a colonoscopy
Anyone that’s had a colonoscopy knows they aren’t fun. Partly due to having something inserted into your behind and partly due to the fasting diet they put you on prior to the procedure. Bone broth is a healthier and more satisfying alternative to the other allowable foods such as fruit juice which are loaded in sugar and only make you hungrier.
03: You are sick with a winter cold and have lost your appetite
Many people lose their appetite when they catch a cold and find it hard to stomach food. However, nourishing your body is important during this time to support your immune system. Bone broth is a light and easy way to get a big dose of nutrients into you whilst also being easy on the digestive system. Using GOOD BONES means all you need to do is heat it up!
04: You have diabetes and are sensitive to blood sugar fluctuations
Finding ready-made snacks that aren’t loaded with sugar or carbohydrates is extremely difficult. Particularly if you are a diabetic and need to pay closer attention to your blood sugar levels. A serve of bone broth is packed with protein and contains virtually no carbohydrates making it a great snack to keep your blood sugar levels stabilised and sugar cravings away for anyone with (or without) diabetes.
05: You have osteoarthritis
Bone broth is rich in hyaluronic acid, glucosamine and chondroitin compounds extracted from the broken down cartilage. These compounds are important for joint health and reducing inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and other inflammatory joint conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
