Easy Bone Broth Recipe and Some Facts About Gut Health and How it is Related to Your Immune System
Hi Everyone! I hope you enjoy this video!
Some Facts About Your Gut & Bone Broth:
Bone broth is super easy to make at home and you can make your own for pennies compared to what you can find at the grocery store. You can even freeze it! I shared these clips on my Instagram and decided to make a YouTube video.
A few facts:
Did you know that 3/4 of the neurotransmitter in your body are made in our gut?
The gut has more cells that any other organ in the rest of the body.
The gut has more metabolic activity than the liver.
70% of Americans have digestive related symptoms or disease.
The most effective clinical outcomes can occur when addressing the gut.
Our skin surface area is 1.5m2.
Our respiratory mucosa surface area is 100 m2.
Our gut surface area is 300m2 (the size of a doubles tennis court).
Every millimeter of our gut’s surface area interacts with what goes down that tube….every morsel, every forkful is either inflammatory or anti-inflammatory….what are we consuming in our daily lives?
The minerals released in bone broth are amazing for our health! One of the major benefits of bone broth is that it is excellent for leaky gut.
Our gut needs a solid lining and if it is permeable, then food particles will escape into or body and the body sees this particles as hostile.
The body has a limited number of insults that it can handle and the gut’s epithelial lining can become like cheese cloth. The microvilli in the gut can degenerate and more gaps can occur between the cells. Then, even macro molecules can get through the lining and suddenly you will make antibodies to food and you can become allergic to so many things….food and even your environment (think seasonal allergies).
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
To You In Good Health!
