TV Presenter, Hits Radio host and busy mother Jenny Powell is a fan of our bone broths, to keep her full of energy and glowing with health.
Bone broth has formed the basis of natural restorative nutrition for hundreds of years. Benefits include supporting gut health, muscle and bone repair, and due to the high concentration of collagen, skin looks brighter, tighter and more nourished.
Jenny says: “As I’ve grown older, I’ve become more aware of clean eating; so what goes into my body or onto the family dinner table needs to be healthy and nutritious. The menopause left me exhausted, but including bone broth into my diet helps me keep up my active lifestyle, run around after my daughters and boost my mood.“
Boosh Foods organic bone broths are slow cooked for over 16 hours and rich in collagen, protein, amino acids and vitamins. In fact, a 350g jar of Boosh Beef Broth contains 10g of protein and 6.7g of collagen. They say 2.5-15g of daily collagen is safe and effective. So imagine how much good the extra collagen may do to your bones, gut, skin, nails and hair, not to mention potentially help with a range of menopause symptoms, from aching joints to dull skin.
Jenny’s tips for using Boosh bone broth:
- Use the Beef Broth as stock in homemade Shepherd’s Pie – we also like it in cottage pie
- Drink it warm as a comforting cuppa
- Make a salad dressing using the spicy Mexican Beef Broth
- Use the Chicken Broth to simmer pho noodles
- Use as a base for a smoothie, a cocktail or a mocktail – our Mexican Beef bone broth makes a mean Bloody Mary
- Encourage your family to talk about the health benefits
Jenny Powell is not the only fan of bone broth. For centuries, bone broth has been used amongst civilisation and cultures for its healing benefits. Dr Rachel Taylor, neuropsychologist and Founder of UNBroken, says “I love bone broth as it literally is the best sustainability hack in the world, as you use the whole of the animal for it and get all the best amino acids and minerals from it. We get things that are tricky to get from modern cooking, but that we need to keep ourselves healthy and promote our true wellbeing. Bone broth contains gelatine which boosts intestinal health and reduce gut inflammation, chondroitin which helps your joints remain healthy and repaired, promotes plasticity and renewal in the central nervous system, collagen which helps with anti-aging functions as well as good organ health, proline is involved in good collagen production and glycine, which has been shown to help with mental health conditions and quality of sleep.”
