Bone Broth and Gut Health

Bone Broth and Gut Health

If we are lucky enough to harvest wild game, we will have access to some of the most nutrient-dense bones on the planet.

Bone broth offers a host of beneficial qualities for our health which is why I strongly encourage utilizing as much of your harvest as you can by taking the bones back to your residence.

One of the beneficial compounds found in bone broth is glutamine.

Glutamine is a compound that is very effective at healing leaky gut by maintaining and strengthening the mucosal lining of our intestines.¹

Leaky gut has a deep-rooted connection with many gut health limitations such as irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease.

When the gut is damaged, for example, due to poor dietary habits, the mucosal lining of our intestines activates inflammation and autoimmune triggers.

Drinking bone broth can help maintain the integrity of our intestines’ lining.

Other potential benefits arising from the consumption of bone broth:

  • Strengthen Immune System
  • Decrease Inflammation
  • Elevate Mood
  • Enhance Sleep
  • Improve Digestion
  • and so on…

Look into making homemade bone broth from your recent harvest and/or grass-fed livestock if you have the opportunity.

When your gut feels better and you don’t have a stomach ache, the way you experience life will be significantly enhanced.

You will be more productive and work towards your goals, scout for upcoming hunts, and crush everything in life.

Sounds pretty good right?
