As women, our health needs evolve as we progress through different stages of life. With post-menopause, it becomes crucial to prioritize nourishing our bodies for healthy aging and address common issues like joint pain, insomnia, and inflammation.
Fortunately, there's a kitchen staple that has found its way into my routine and provided remarkable benefits: bone broth. With its rich content of collagen, glycine, and other essential compounds, bone broth offers natural support for restorative sleep, improved mobility, stronger bones, and vibrant skin.
Restorative Sleep: Unleash the Power of Bone Broth
For years, disrupted sleep has been a constant struggle for me, frequently waking up throughout the night. As I've aged, leaky gut and IBS have further complicated matters. But hey, who knew that the answer to my beauty sleep would be found in a steaming cup of bone broth?
Since I added this magical elixir into my evening routine, I'm getting deeper and more restful sleep, with fewer nighttime disruptions. It turns out that the glycine present in bone broth acts as a natural sleep aid, gently coaxing my body and mind into a state of tranquility [1,2]. Now I can say goodbye to those sleepless nights and hello to waking up refreshed and ready to conquer the world!
I’ve also found that maintaining a consistent sleep-wake schedule, reducing screen time before bed, alongside regularly enjoying bone broth has transformed my sleep quality. Embrace these mindful habits and let bone broth be your soothing companion for a peaceful night's rest. Your body and mind will thank you!
Improved Joint Health: Nurturing Your Joints with Bone Broth
Joint pain and stiffness are common concerns among women in my age group, I'm 66 by the way. However, the collagen and gelatin found in bone broth are really helping with keeping my joints more fluid and it’s playing a vital role in preserving my cartilage and tendons .
By drinking bone broth every day I’ve noticeably reduced inflammation in my joints, relieving the pain allows me to enjoy activities such as pickleball and hiking.
Additionally, bone broth contains essential minerals like calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium, which are crucial for building and maintaining bone density  You know that nasty osteopenia and osteoporosis looming over our heads? Well, bone broth is the right medicine.
Revitalized Skin: Restoring Elasticity, Hydration, and Firmness
Another frustration for us during and after menopause is the changes that occur in our skin. Collagen plays a pivotal role in skin elasticity, hydration, and regeneration. As we age, the production of collagen decreases, leading to wrinkles, dryness, and loss of firmness. However, bone broth contains collagen, gelatin, and amino acids that effectively promote skin health by replenishing collagen, hydrating skin cells, and protecting against environmental damage [4,6].
Personally, I have experienced a noticeable improvement in the softness and suppleness of my skin. My friends who haven't seen me in a while say “Wow you look so healthy.” The effects have been really noticeable on my face, neck, and hands.
Combat Inflammation: Promote Overall Wellness with Bone Broth
Reducing inflammation is huge for overall health and healthy aging in women. Chronic inflammation is linked to various health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and certain cancers . Bone broth contains powerful compounds like collagen, gelatin, glucosamine, and chondroitin, which really help in reducing inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and throughout the body .
For me, this last year I have moved toward more of a vegetarian diet (an anti-inflammatory diet and limiting the consumption of red meat). Most of my meals include quinoa salads, chopped salads, sweet potato, oatmeal, vegan cheeses, nuts, and other grains. I’m not against eating chicken, fish, and beef occasionally, but my digestive track works so much better when I eat this way.
