In this recipe I've used a one to one ratio of water to broth, adjust your other ingredients as needed. This yields about 2 cups of matcha broth late'.
I have been riding the bone broth train for years and won't be getting off !! Here is why..
Bone broth is essentially liquid nutrition with a great amino acid profile, rich in collagen and many other minerals(phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, silicon and sulfur to name a few). It is used to break fasts as an easily digestible nutrient-dense fuel and rich in Glycine.
Why do we need glycine?
To start, glycine is an amino acid, we need those to run our beautiful machines and repair our bodies. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, remember?
Glycine is typically found in the bones, ligaments and connective tissues of animals-hence bone broth being a great source of it.
From the research I found, we typically get 1.5-3 grams of glycine per day from our diet and our body produces 3 grams per day. This means we are about 5 grams short of our daily amount of glycine and here why we should supplement.
Bone broth has been used normalize blood sugar, heal ulcers, repair the mucosal lining of your intestines, help relieve joint pain and speed up recovery. Its also considered a beauty food due to it's collagen content, bone broth can help repair your skin(stretch marks, celulite, acne, complexion.
Most importantly!! Glycine is a neurotransmitter and keeps our brain calm and has science backing it for improvement in a few mental health imbalances like depression.
As a pre-work out, bone broth is kick a** because glycine helps sythesize creatine, which is how your muscles build mass and gain strength. Booya!
I feel strong during my morning work outs and I never get the work out "bonk". I find this matcha broth late is a great breakfast or pre-work out due to its nutrient profile and digestibility. Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments!
I hope this inspires you to add bone broth to your weekly routine and really soak in the benefits!
