Have you had your bone broth today? There’s a reason so many health professionals and nutrition-obsessed celebs drink bone broth on the daily—even throughout the summer. What many don’t realize is that one cup of bone broth can contain up to 20 grams of protein, not to mention collagen, minerals and electrolytes. This ain’t your mamas cup o’ soup!
Bone broth may look like regular soup stock, but in fact, it is one of the most nutrient-dense snacks around. That’s why we weren’t phased by Gwyneth Paltrow’s recent brothy lunch fiasco that received so much criticism. (She has also since clarified that: “By the way, I eat far more than bone broth and vegetables. I eat full meals.”)
Celebrities like Halle Berry, Kendall Jenner and Salma Hayak have all sung the praises of adding bone broth to their daily diets over the years. And, more importantly, so many of our favorite wellness professionals drink it regularly.
Thanks to bone broth’s growing popularity, there are more flavors and brands available than ever before. Our top pick lately is Dr. Kellyann’s Bone Broth Powder in Thai LemonGrass — the quickest, most convenient (and delicious) protein snack we’ve ever come across!
Dr. Kellyann is the author of the original Bone Broth Diet (and a Mario Lopez fave). One packet of flavor-packed broth like Thai Lemongrass or Miso Mushroom can be whipped up faster than a cup of tea and give us all that extra protein in a flash! Bonus: there’s none of the aftertaste that homemade bone broths can have if not meticulously prepared.
Dr. Kellyann Bone Broth is rich in the amino acids, electrolytes, and minerals our bodies’ crave. The benefits for digestion, skin, and sleep quality are myriad.
7 Reasons Nutrition-Obsessed Celebs Are Drinking Bone Broth Every Day
01 Liquid Gold for Gut Health | The collagen, gelatin, and amino acids in bone broth can all relieve uncomfortable symptoms like bloating, constipation, stubborn belly fat, or digestive discomfort. The gelatin and minerals contained in bone broth support in lubricating and soothing your gut, as well as flushing out toxins. Glutamine is one of the amino acids found in bone broth and is essential in supporting the intestinal lining, so important for nutrient absorption. Plus another amino acid, glycine, can help support smooth digestion by supporting the production of stomach acid, which can help you digest fats and other hard-to-digest foods.
02 Packed With Protein | Speaking of amino acids, bone broth contains more than 19 easy-to-absorb essential and non-essential amino acids—the building blocks of protein. Expect to receive 15-20g of protein in a single serving. As we’re all learning, we need more protein in our diets than we thought. Proteins can help build hair, skin, nails, connective tissues, enzymes, muscles, and more.
03 Anti-Aging Agent | Dr. Kellyann calls bone broth an “anti-aging superfood” as it’s one of the best sources of natural collagen. The human body naturally produces collagen, but as we age, collagen production can begin to decline. This can start as early as the late twenties for some people and can even be exacerbated due to environmental stressors like sun damage or pollution. The bioavailable collagen in bone broth can restore this key building block and keep skin looking young by minimizing fine lines and making your skin look plumper. Plus, it’s also essential in keeping the cartilage in our joints healthy for mobility.
04 Weight Management Tool | With just 75 calories, a serving of bone broth provides a ton of nutrients and is packed with satiating protein. Plus, those vitamins, minerals and amino acids all support the reduction of inflammation, irritation and promote healthy digestion and elimination—ie. the tenants of supporting your body to look and feel its best and maintain a healthy weight.
05 Mood Booster | An excellent source of electrolytes such as potassium, sodium and magnesium, bone broth contains minerals that have been shown to support your body’s natural serotonin production. This neurotransmitter is particularly responsible for satisfaction, happiness and optimism. Plus, the amino acid glycine works as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain during times of stress, supporting a sense of calm.
06 Sleep Hygiene Support | Consider swapping out that evening chamomile tea for a cup of bone broth. All the minerals and amino acids found in that cup can help regulate body temperature, which is essential for a good night’s sleep. Magnesium also specifically is one of the best minerals for sleep and melatonin production.
