Bone broth is all the rage at the moment and for all the right reasons! This sipped beverage has so many benefits that could really help turn your health around, and with it now available in already made concentrates, you no longer need to slave over a hot stove for hours to get a cup of it.
In Chinese Medicine, bone broth helps to nourish and tonify your Earth energy and your Pi energy (Spleen energy). The Pi has the responsibility of making the body’s Qi and Blood energy. It is responsible for your digestion, keeping those hands and feet of yours warm, giving you the energy you need to get through your busy days, nourishing and keeping your muscles soft and supple, and Mothering the Metal energy, giving the Fei (Lung) the proper amount of care to ensure your skin is bright and full of life. Bone broth also helps to build Yin in the body, allowing for healthy periods, a good night’s sleep, and a healthy mind.
Bone broth is rich in vitamins and minerals such as
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
- Fatty acids
But most importantly, bine broth is full of collagen, which provides the body with amino acids which are the building blocks of protein for your body. This internal consumption of collagen will help heal your skin from the inside, and give your skin more substance to work with when you receive Cosmetic Acupuncture. It is the Glow from within!
At Zhong Centre, we recommend you drink 1 cup of bone broth per day, with extra bone broth added to your meals throughout the week, to give those stews and soups some added health benefits!
