Bone Broth Nutrition Facts
The nutrition in bone broth is very far reaching. Bone broth has a very low glycemic load and a very balanced nutritional profile which includes amino acids, essential vitamins such as Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6 and essential minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese and Selenium. Bone broth’s nutrition also includes high protein, low fat, low calorie, and low carbohydrate nutritional content.
Bone broth plays a critical role in alleviating one’s gut and letting the body absorb critical nutrients in the most easily assimilated way. Loaded with specialty minerals, which happens to be a U.S epidemic health issue, bone broth is a fantastic method to restore the body’s likely depleted mineral reserve and offers great nutrition.

Bone Broth Protein Content
Real Bone Broth made ON THE FARM by STRAWMAN FARM is very high in protein content. As such it is a great idea for high protein diets or for workout recovery. The bone broth protein content in an 8oz cup of Bison Bone Broth is 14grams of protein per serving. The high protein content in bone broth is due to being made by simmering animal bones and animal meats in water.
Bone Broth Gelatin
Gelatin assists digestion and has been effectively used as a treatment for digestive conditions such as colitis, IBS, Crohn's disease, hyper-acidity and constipation. Gelatin is beneficial for people dealing with intestinal disorders for a couple reasons:
Gelatin is very soothing to the GI tract because it lines and fills the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract which protects it from ingested food particles.
Gelatin allows one’s body to fully employ complete proteins that are consumed making gelatin crucial for those who are unable to have big quantities of meat in their diets.
Gelatin absorbs liquid and helps retain liquid in one’s digestive tract permitting food to pass effortlessly through the gut and promote healthy and regular bowel movements.
Bone Broth Joint Health
Bone Broth is made from bare bones and joints of animals and the same nutritional building blocks help strengthen your own skeletal system and joints
Collagen, which is the matrix of protein in bones, tendons, ligaments, and other flexible and connective tissues, is broken down during the simmering process into another protein called gelatin. Gelatin is the reason real bone broth such as Au Bon Broth gels in the fridge.
Bone broth gives your body the raw building blocks to rebuild your body’s own connective tissue, especially tendons and ligaments.
As well as making available the raw materials for bones and joints, the proteins in bone broth is especially beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis, a painful chronic autoimmune disease marked by painful damage to the tendons and ligaments. One study showed that proteins in bone broth may actually help stop the autoimmune response altogether and found that collagen from organic chicken dramatically improved 60 patients symptoms and four of them had complete remission.
Joint health is also improved by bone broth because of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which is found in bones and is a connective tissue that shows positive effects in reducing joint pain. One of these GAGs, hyaluronic acid, is an effective treatment for osteoarthritis: and there’s evidence that it is beneficial when taken orally. Chondroitin sulfate is another GAG that has performed well in minimizing joint pain and arthritis damage in several studies.
One study compared glucosamine + chondroitin to plain collagen (the type that is found in bone broth) and found that the collagen was more effective than the two supplements together which indicates that consuming bone broth as a whole food helps in ways that the supplements miss.
The combination of GAGs and proteins that are in bone broth are a valuable food, and a way to combat joint diseases and pain. If you are active in activities that place stress on your joints (like jogging or weightlifting) adding bone broth to your diet could prove beneficial.
Bone Broth Used By Professional Basketball Star Kobe Bryant
The star of the Los Angeles Lakers professional basketball team Kobe Bryant is a huge advocate of drinking bone broth daily and calls bone broth his “secret weapon”. Every day at the Lakers practice facility in El Segundo, Sandra Padilla, the team’s longtime chef, makes enough bone broth to feed the Lakers team and Kobe Bryant is it’s biggest fan.
“Kobe Bryant keeps his emotions very closed, but Kobe has recognized that bone broth is a very important thing and he’s asked me to help him consume it whenever we’re on the road,” said DiFrancesco, noting that Kobe Bryant will often drink bone broth in the afternoon before a night game. “If he doesn’t strongly believe in something, he’s not going to seek it out. We haven’t necessarily discussed it’s effects on his body, but the simple fact that he’s directly said to me ‘I need you to help me find bone broth’ is very validating.”
DiFrancesco said there is more than ample anecdotal evidence to convince himself and most of the Laker’s players that bone broth is very effective. Some people, he said, even notice results from a bone broth within 24 hours of eating it.
Once players feel the benefits physically, DiFrancesco said, the bone broth has become a daily addition to the diets of some even outside of basketball season, such as former Lakers Steve Blake, Meta World Peace and Chris Kaman, all of whom credit bone broth with helping them recover from injuries and extending their basketball careers.
