The Top 5 Health Reasons For Feeding Bone Broth To Your Dog.
1. Healing a leaky gut.
If you have heard of leaky gut syndrome then you will know that it is thought to be the main reason behind so many allergies and illnesses. The gut is lined with miniscule holes which allow the nutrients from food to pass from the gut into the body. The modern lives of dogs exposes them to many toxins, stressors and other factors including poor diets which cause these miniscule holes to become bigger. This allows things to pass through that aren’t meant to, including undigested food and toxins. The body will treat these particles as foreign invaders and start to attack them placing undue stress on the immune system.
Bone broth contains huge amounts of gelatin which acts like a plug to these intestinal holes. Bone broth also contains glycine. Gelatine and glycine work together in effectively healing the leaky gut and therefore helping to heal other symptoms the leaky gut has caused.
2. Bone broth is good for joints.
Glycosaminoglycans such as glucosamine are essential for keeping joints healthy. Bone broth is full of glycosaminoglycans. Unlike synthetic glucosamine the glucosamine and other glycosaminoglycans from bone broth are resistant to digestion and are more readily absorbed by the body. That’s not all, bone broth also contains chondroitin and hyaluronic acid both essential for good joint health
3. Bone broth helps with detox.
As mentioned already, bone broth contains glycine, a simple amino acid that is great for healing and used by the liver in detoxifying the body.
4. Bone broth is good for arteries.
Arteries need collagen to maintain their elasticity bone broth contains collagen.
Marrow helps provide the body with nutrients needed for healthy blood cells and immune development. Don’t wait until your dog is sick before feeding them bone broth but if you do have a sick dog, bone broth will definitely help.
