Nourishing Bone Broth Soup

Leaky gut is one of the main drivers behind all sorts of health concerns, from bloating and digestive discomfort to brain fog, autoimmunity and skin issues such as eczema and psoriasis.

Leaky gut is exactly what it sounds like. It is experienced when the epithelial cell junctions in the gut become loose, or in other words, there are gaps in the gut lining that create ‘leaking’.

"Leaky gut is when there are gaps in the gut lining that create ‘leaking’."

Bone broth contains healing compounds such as glutamine, collagen, proline, glycine and gelatine. These are essential amino acids and trace minerals that help seal and heal the gut lining. This is because they're easily absorbed, allowing them to provide your gut cells with the direct building blocks needed to rebuild and regenerate.

"Bone broth contains healing compounds that help to seal the gut lining."

To help you build a strong gut lining, we've created this soul-warming bone broth soup recipe.
