What are some of the Nutrients in our Broth?
We had our bone broth tested to find out more about the nutrients in it...
COLLAGEN holds the body together, plumps skin, lubricates joints, and builds mucosal barriers to protect the body from pathogens. Broths contain gelatine – a protein-rich, bioavailable form of collagen.
PROLINE is an anti-inflammatory amino acid which builds healthy cartilage.
GLYCINE is an anti-inflammatory amino acid, vital for wound healing. The liver requires it to produce the antioxidant glutathione.
GLUTAMINE & ARGININE keep the gut lining healthy and well equipped to heal in the face of constant challenge. They are known to relieve colitis. They also benefit brain health.
THREONINE is a biogenic amine vital for keeping the gut lining in good health.
BONE MARROW is the nutrient dense component of bone that generates stem and blood cells.
MINERALS: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulphur, sodium and potassium.
GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS (GAGs: including hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, glucosamine, chondroitin and keratan sulphate) are hydrophilic (water-attracting) proteins. They lubricate, cushion and protect cartilage and joints; support collagen and elastin production; benefit skin, hair, nails and the intestinal lining; and make up joint fluid – the body’s shock absorber.
The Essential Broth is slow-cooked locally using all New Zealand ingredients:
Filtered water; organic apple cider vinegar; and meaty bones from duck, organic chicken, and grass-fed or organic beef.
