5 Benefits of Bone Broth
Even if pets show no signs of digestive issues or chronic conditions, pet parents can nurture their pet's intestinal health by increasing nutrients in their diet to maintain properly functioning systems. Bone broths offer an easy-to-absorb source of essential nutrients that are important for overall health and well-being of all pets, and especially vital for seniors and those with compromised immune systems.
Adding anti-inflammatory nutrients to pets' diets is necessary for disease prevention and overall health. Check out these amazing benefits from our friends at Nugget's Healthy Eats:
1. Digestive Health
Bone broth helps heal and coat the intestinal lining, providing easily digestible micronutrients to strengthen and soothe the gut. A leaky gut consists of small holes and the gelatin in bone broth prevents the intestinal lining from allowing particles, such as bacteria and undigested food, from passing through the intestinal lining and into the bloodstream.
2. Liver Detox
Rich in glycine, bone broth increases the liver's capacity to detoxify various toxins including lawn chemicals, processed food, and parasite medications.
3. Immune System Support
Bone broth is concentrated with valuable amino acids such as glycine and proline, promoting production of glutathione (nature's powerful antioxidant) which aids the liver in detoxification, supports healthy lungs, wound healing and resistance to disease.
4. Reduced Inflammation
Bone broth contains several anti-inflammatory nutrients needed to prevent the development of inflammatory illnesses and diseases, including allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, type II diabetes, pancreatitis, liver disease and inflammatory bowel disease.
5. Healthy Joints & Bones
Bone broth is loaded with glycosaminoglycans and you are probably familiar with one of them: glucosamine. Bone broth contains tons of glucosamine; it's also packed with other joint-protecting compounds such as chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, giving cartilage its resilience.
Safe for cats and dogs, bone broths aid in gut health to strengthen and soothe our furry friends' stomachs!
