Bone Broth

WHAT IS BONE BROTH?

Bone broth - slow cooked bones and other connective tissue - is a gelatinous, nutrient-dense superfood. Easily digested, even when other foods are not, broth has been used in nourishing traditions the world over to heal and restore gut health. Rich in minerals, and a highly available source of protein in times of malnourishment, or when little else will be tolerated.

HOW IS IT USEFUL?

For cats and dogs (as well as humans), good health relies upon an intestinal barrier that allows the absorption of beneficial nutrients, but prevents the absorption of harmful dietary and environmental compounds. When the intestinal barrier is compromised by modern lifestyles - including the consumption of food-like products rather than real food, and frequent use of antibiotics and painkillers - our gut becomes 'leaky'.

A leaky gut can cause and contribute to a host of conditions, including:

  • Itchy and irritated skin
  • Otitis / ear infections
  • Cystitis / urinary tract issues
  • Joint disease
  • Dental disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Autoimmune conditions

SO WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR MY CAT OR DOG?

  • Bone broth is easily assimilated by a leaky gut. It is nutrient dense, rich in minerals, and a highly available source of protein intakes of malnourishment, or when little else will be tolerated.
  • Broth will heal and seal a leaky gut, allowing your pet to start using nutrients it needs to recover.
  • Broth aids recovery from wounds, injuries, and post-surgical trauma.
  • Broth can be used as a nutrient boost for health cats and dogs, to promote good health - it's like liquid gold and contains a small fortune of supplements (see below)

HOW DO I USE IT?

  • Our bone broth is frozen so its all natural with no preservatives added. Defrost in the fridge prior to use.
  • Pour the bone broth into your pet's bowl just like you would top them up with water, or mix it in with food.
  • You can keep it open in the fridge for up to 3 days.

WHAT'S IN BONE BROTH?

Collagen

Holds the body together, plumps the skin, lubricates joints, and builds mucosal barriers to protect the body from pathogens. Broths contain gelatin - a protein-rich, bioavailable form of collagen.

Proline

An anti-inflammatory amino acid that build healthy cartilage

Glycine

An anti-inflammatory animo acid vital for wound healing and blood synthesis; and required for the liver to produce the antioxidant glutathione.

Gluatime

Facilitates a rapid turnover of cells in the gut - keeping the lining healthy and able to heal when challenged; and is an essential amino acid for brain health.

Glycosaminoglycans

GAGs (hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, keratin sulphate) are hydrophilic (water-attracting) proteins with lubricating, cushioning and protecting properties.

Hyaluronic Acid

The main component of synovial fluid (the body's shock absorber) is concentrated in the gut where it attracts digestive juices and lines the intestinal tract. It is also responsible for skin 'plumpness'.

Chondroitin Sulphate

Cushions and protects cartilage

Bone Marrow

The nutrient dense component of bone that generates stem and blood cells.

Minerals

Such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, sulphur, sodium, and potassium.
