From the Annals of College Medicine was printed this 2011 study on concentrated bone broth effects on bone fractures and joint health.
From the study:
"Background: A variety of substances, biological and physical interventions have been used to enhance bone fractures healing. There is growing evidences for the importance of nutrition in maintenance of bone health and support of fracture healing."
The initial objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of the daily oral dose of concentrated bone broth as dietary supplementation on bone healing in experimental animals.
The study divided the animals into two groups. The experimental group received a daily dose of a broth concentrate much like Best of the Bone. The other group maintained a normal vegetable-based diet.
The conclusions were based on measuring bone density (callus density) with CT scans and found within five weeks a statistically significant difference between the two groups. In the a follow-up study they again concluded that a daily oral administration of bone broth enhanced bone healing.
They went on to state: "The findings in this study support the common folk idea that this dietary supplementation enhances bone healing when given in course of fracture healing for sufficient time. Bone broth, made from the bones of animals, has been consumed as a source of nourishment for humankind throughout the ages (2). It is a traditional remedy across cultures for the sick and weak."
There is growing evidences for the importance of nutrition in maintenance of bone and joint health. Bone is complex tissue that requires many nutrients. Joint health is often a synchronous issue with bone health. Interestingly, this study was designed to see if diet, a a much cheaper alternative to medicine, could have positive effects on healing for poorer communities. The results of course show yet again that a healthy diet including in this case can beneft everyone : )
