It’s almost six months now; I’m continuously drinking this bone broth on alternate nights, and
I’m happy to share with you today the results of this recipe. I’ll be disclosing this secret a little bit later, let me first write more about bone broth and its benefits for those people who are new to this word.
So, what is bone broth?
Bone broth is a nutrient-rich soup, made by lightly simmering bones for almost 24 hours. It’s a delicious, convenient to prepare, and super healthy food. It helps you to feel fit and energized. You can also read my previous blog where I discussed the usefulness of bone broth in diabetes.
An overview of health benefits of bone broth
Bone broth has plenty of health benefits. It’s a total health power-house. It improves digestion and gut health, reduces inflammation, balances hormones, fights against infections, as well as enhances energy and better sleep.Bone broth has plenty of health benefits.

It also helps in bone, joint, and muscles recovery. It is high in protein, with zero fat and rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It staves off diseases, heals joints, improves metabolic health, and helps in digestive discomfort for a longer, lighter and more energetic bloat-free life.
Below is a detailed list of some great health benefits of bone broth:
1.. It improves gastrointestinal conditions
Bone broth helps in improving the symptoms of chronic gastrointestinal conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, colitis, and Crohn’s disease. It has collagen which forms gelatin when cooked down further. Both of these ingredients are rich in amino acids and help reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Recent research shows that the leaky gut, also known as “Increased Intestinal Permeability” is the primary cause of inflammation in the GI tract. It is a digestive condition in which bacteria and toxins leak through the intestinal wall of a body, thus causing inflammation.
Leaky gut is also believed to be the main contributor to depression, anxiety, eczema, allergies, acne, and low energy. It is a silent killer showing no symptoms in the early stages. It affects more than 70% of the population. So, consuming bone broth regularly helps to heal the leaky gut naturally.
2.. It is an anti-aging wonder
Your nails, skin, and hair are made up of proteins like collagen. Collagen helps to give strength to your nails and skin and encourages your hair to increase with a healthy shine. Nowadays many anti-aging skincare brands include collagen in their products like face creams, moisturizers, and serums that can be absorbed through your digestive system.
Since there is a direct link between gut and skin, so when you include bone broth in your diet, it gives a more powerful and lasting impact on your overall appearance as well as on your skin.
3.. It is an immune system booster
Bone broth contains fantastic minerals, nutrients, and vitamins that help the body ward off sickness and illness from common colds to allergies, arthritis, and asthma while boosting and strengthening the immune system.
4.. It helps to ease inflamed joints and arthritis
The best way to nourish your bones and joints in any injury, arthritis, or sore muscles is to ingest as many nutrients as possible. Bone broth has many nutrients like hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin, calcium, and magnesium.
It is also packed with several amino acids like glycine and proline that help to reduce joint pain and inflammation. Due to this reason, bone broth is becoming a go-to recovery drink among athletes.Bone broth is becoming a go-to recovery drink among athletes. Click To Tweet
5.. It is a weight-loss wonder
Despite the nutritious boost provided by bone broth, it’s low in fat and calories, making it the perfect addition to a healthy diet especially if you want to lose weight. It’s incredibly filling and satisfying, and its amino acids and glutamine support a healthy metabolism while boosting energy levels.
6.. It is a perfect sleep promoter
We are always looking for deep and restful sleep. Statistics show that an average person gets less than 7 hours of sleep per night, so it’s essential for us to do whatever we can to get the most hours of sleep.
Bone broth is rich in glycine nutrient which is an anti-inflammatory amino acid. Glycine works on the Central Nervous System (CNS). When you take bone broth before bed as a supplement, this glycine works to improve your sleep quality and reduce your daytime drowsiness. It works much better if you pair it with other sleep supportive nutrients, like calcium and magnesium.
7.. It gives enhanced results on the Keto and Paleo diets
Bone broth is an excellent nutritional source especially if you are on the Paleo diet. It encourages you to drink it during your periods of intermittent fasting. It also provides your macronutrient requirements if you are on the keto diet.
What to avoid when buying bone broth from the market?
You have to confirm it first that you are buying the best bone broth brands available in the market. It is because these brands are the ones that replicate the traditional and long slow simmer method of making broth at home by using almost the same ingredients that you use at home. In this way, whenever you purchase a store-bought bone broth, you’re getting a broth that is very much close to the homemade one as possible.
So, look for only those bone broth brands that contain the same ingredients you’d usually use to prepare bone broth at home like bones, vegetables, herbs, spices, lactic acid (mostly found in yogurt, whey, and fermented vegetables), and vinegar. These acidic ingredients help to release collagen from connective tissues and give your bone broth a high level of protein and gel.
Some low-quality bone broth brands add fillers and additives like sugar, hydrolyzed proteins, yeast extract, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, and maltodextrin to enhance the flavor. When you find these ingredients on the nutrition label of bone broth, it means the manufacturer has skimped on preparing the methods to replicate the character of the real bone broth.
One more thing, bone broths that contain additives and flavor enhancers are priced lower and sold more cheaply than broths made the traditional way through slow cooking and good quality, real food ingredients.
If you see flavor enhancers and additives when you look at the label on a package of bone broth, give it a miss. You’ll know that that the maker took shortcuts and isn’t delivering anything close to the real thing.
Now my killer bone broth recipe…
It’s the recipe that has cured my diabetes drastically. I will give its recipe a little later at the end but if you are in a hurry to know about it, then scroll down to go directly to the mushroom-chicken bone broth recipe section or continue reading for more detailed information about the benefits of mushrooms in diabetes.
Health Benefits Of Mushrooms In Diabetes
We all know that mushrooms help in managing blood sugar levels. Eating white button mushrooms everyday act as a prebiotic by improving the microbial community in the gut, which then enhances the regulation of glucose in the liver.
Most of the people think that mushrooms are vegetables, but in reality, they are fungus; they have no roots, leaves, flowers or seeds. They are considered good foods for diabetes as they provide many health benefits when they are consumed as part of your balanced diet.
Mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties that help to regulate inflammation in your body. They can make an excellent snack for people with diabetes as they have a low glycaemic index and contain a meager amount of carbs, which means they do not raise blood sugar levels as significantly as high-carb foods. That’s why mushrooms are also considered as superfoods to cure type 2 diabetes.
Fresh mushrooms are also great for weight management, which is also a key factor in keeping your blood sugar levels in check. They have low calorie with high water content, and they have both soluble and insoluble fiber, of which soluble fiber is shown to keep blood sugar levels in check and keeps you fuller for longer.

And, these reviews are published on Kettle & Fire Co.’s own website.
I love the combination of chicken and mushroom for this broth. It is easy to prepare, and I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to control blood sugar levels.
Since this bone broth has a mild flavor with little high sodium content, please take extra caution if you have any health problem related to high sodium intake.
You should not drink it on a regular basis if you are trying to lower your sodium content or you are on low sodium diet. It would cause adverse effects on your health by increasing your blood pressure levels.
In such a case, you must consult your doctor or dietician before drinking bone broth on a regular basis. One more point I would like to mention here that you should not expect quick results from this recipe instead you have to be very patient. You will get its good outcome, but it will take time.
You have seen my results in the above screenshots. It took four months to start decreasing my blood sugar level towards the target that I wanted to achieve. And another thing, you should not skip drinking it on the required day and time also. Be consistent and drink it regularly on time.
You can also try my another favorite brand Bare & Bones bone broth if you want to change the taste of your bone broth recipes.
Anyway, give me your feedback if you have tried Kettle & Fire Mushroom-Chicken Bone Broth before or after my recommendation. I would love to know about your feelings for this liquid gold syrup.
