The Amazing Benefits of This Homemade Remedy

I took a walk outside yesterday. On that stroll I took a deep breath, and sighed because summer is sadly over. However, Iím certainly not concerned about catching a cold because of the cooler weather. In fact, I havenít been sick in years.
Whatís my secret? It is definitely one of the best classic homemade healing foods I have ever eaten! It is also a very popular comfort food. Iím talking about chicken soup. Not canned and processed soup, though. I make the real stuff, just like grandma used to make.
Itís a food that seems to cure any illness, but have you ever wondered why?
Traditional Chinese medicine has known the prescription for centuries. Itís simply the broth from animal bones. Bone broth soup is one of the best nutrient-dense healing foods. These bones contain collagen, gelatin, glycine, arginine, proline, conhondroitin sulphates, glycosaminoglycans, hyaluronic acid, and loads of other nutrients. But the list is long and some of those names can be difficult to pronounce, so here are a few simple reasons I consume bone broth soup on a regular basis:
Better Digestion: Bone broth soup can help heal the gastrointestinal lining, and treat digestive conditions, such as leaky gut syndrome. The bones contain plenty of the powerful amino acid glycine. I recall a study from the American Journal of Physiology. The study found that glycine stimulated hydrochloric secretion within the stomach in healthy volunteers. The researchers also observed other infusions during the experiment, such as saline, and related glycine peptides, like diglycine, triglycine, and tetraglycine. The glycine and its related peptide infusions would increase plasma glycine concentrations.
Stronger Immunity: Do you have the flu or a cold? Bone broth, and chicken soup in particular, is known to strengthen the immune system. An in vitro study published in the journal Chest suggests that there may be certain substances within a traditional chicken soup that contain medicinal properties. The study observed that the soup would inhibit neutrophil migration during a standard chemotaxis chamber assay with chemoattractants. Simply put, it boosts your immune system.
