Let’s talk about bone broth. There isn’t a lot of research on bone broth, but many people love it. If you have gut problems, arthritis, or an autoimmune disease, you might want to test it out to see how it works for you.

Bone broth is typically made from:
• Bone
• Joints
• Connective tissue
• Marrow 
• Ligaments 
• Tendons 

The above are cooked down and made into broth. Cooking these things breaks them down into smaller amino acids, minerals, and fat-soluble vitamins. It also contains glutamine, which can help improve the gut barrier. 

Autoimmune diseases typically stem from a gut problem that leads to your immune system attacking itself. Arthritis is an autoimmune disease, so anything you can do to help heal your gut may be good for arthritis. 

There are a few different causes of arthritis, so it’s important to target the root cause. Bone broth may not help for every type and cause of arthritis. 

An interesting theory is that when you consume bone broth, the antibodies that are attacking your joints will be distracted and go after the decoy tissue in the broth. 

You basically cause the autoimmune attack to occur in the stomach on this decoy tissue away from the inflamed joint. This gives the joint time to heal. 

It’s believed that over time this could potentially deplete the store of antibodies in a person's system and improve autoimmune conditions. 

What to try for gut issues:
• Consume fermented foods or take probiotics 
• Consume a diet higher in animal fat and animal protein
• Cook or steam your vegetables 
• Avoid grains or grain oils
• Avoid dairy 
• Consume eggs, organ meats, and bone marrow 

I don’t recommend bone broth during intermittent fasting. But, if you’re doing a prolonged fast, it might be helpful.
