Do you suffer from joint pain and is it worth trying Bone Broth for Joint Pain? Whether chronic or temporary due to exercise, physical labour or other bone stressors, there’s one overlooked source of relief and recovery you won’t find at a pharmacy or in a vitamin aisle; bone broth!
While it’s not uncommon for athletes, gym regulars, exercise enthusiasts and rehabilitation clients to have broth consumption and recipe integration become part of their routine due to the high protein content (especially chicken bone broth at 14g/serving), an added benefit is how good broth is for your bones and muscles.
Shorba Beef and Chicken Bone Broths for joint pain are both rich sources of collagen, which is a foundational protein of your connective tissue; this is the tissue that makes up your cartilage as well as your hair, nails and skin. Like your bones and joints, your cartilage is always working hard to keep your joints cushioned and your bone structures supported, all while enduring the wear, tear and weight of any activity or incident.
By consuming broth, you’re providing your body with a natural source of collagen, which can help to increase your capability of recovery, enhance your mobility, increase flexibility or, at the very least, reduce symptoms or impulses of stiffness, difficulty moving and pain.
Our broths also contain glucosamine and chondroitin, which are additional natural compounds that make up your cartilage. As supplements, or broth nutrients naturally sourced from beef, glucosamine and chondroitin are frequently consumed to take advantage of their anti-inflammatory properties to reduce (or completely relieve oneself from) joint issues.
As a bonus, the health optimization and nourishment from routine broth intake results in natural increases in energy consistency. This makes it even easier to withstand bone and joint issue recovery as well as participation in, and recovery from, various other forms of rehabilitation or exercise.
While there’s no wrong answer to the question “when should I drink bone broth?” the most benefits are absorbed and experienced by the body when you consume bone broth first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
If you’re headed to physical rehabilitation, the gym or other executions of exercise, we recommend consuming bone broth at least an hour before you start. This will result in the heightened likelihood of improved joint flexibility, inflammation reduction plus the ability to build muscle (or reduce muscle waste) thanks to glycine – another wonderful nutrient of benefit found in broth!
