Recipe : Immune Boosting Bone Broth

by Urban Yoga Lab

Immune boosting rich bone broth will keep your body healthier and stronger. The Coronavirus is out there to get us, some say that it’s inevitable that the majority of us will catch it, how quickly we recover from it is down to the strength of our immune system. Yes, follow the rules, wash your hands (as always anyway), but you can do more than that, support yourself by eating healthy, equip your body with a mega-dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals so when it’s time to fight, you’ll defend your body.

My bone broth will do precisely that – help keep you strong and healthy!

Long-simmering bones in water makes a really nutrient-dense broth rich in minerals like iron, calcium as well as beneficial collagen, which is rich in several amino acids. Two of them are glycine and arginine, which have strong anti-inflammatory effects.

Adding a splash of apple cider vinegar assists in the breakdown of minerals from the bones.

Collagen may help with bone and joint disease, while glycine may help with sleepiness and fatigue. It has also been found that glutamine, another amino acid that is part of the bone broth, helps regulate gut bacteria, and a healthy gut encourages less inflammation in the rest of our bodies and loads of happy serotonin.

All this nutritious goodness, together in a broth, is a great way to drink up nutrients. A meal in a cup!

Drink daily during these bleak times. Stay healthy!
