Bone Broth and Weight Loss

Research has shown that obese people have more of a bacteria known as Firmicutes and less of another type of bacteria called Bacteroidetes in their digestive tracts. It is believed that the higher proportion of Firmicutes leads to more calories extracted from food. Therefore, a higher ratio of Firmicutes to Bacteriodetes has become one of the markers of obesity. Bone broth offers L-glutamine, an essential amino acid necessary for gut health. In studies it was found to reduce Firmicutes and facilitates weight loss.

The amino acids in bone broth can help muscle protein development. Muscle protein synthesis is essential for growth, repair, and maintenance of muscle groups. In a study looking at healthy patients and ovarian-cancer patients, researchers found that ingesting amino acids helped stimulate muscle protein synthesis and reduced inflammation, both in healthy participants and participants undergoing cancer therapy. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn at a resting heart rate.

Your diet influences your gut bacteria, and your gut bacteria influence your brain. Neuroscientists have learned that your gut bacteria are continually communicating to your brain. The makeup of gut bacteria (your microbiome) influences how the brain is wired from infancy to adulthood, along with mood, memory, the ability to learn, and how to deal with stress. When the microbiome is healthy, it sends happy signals to the brain; when it’s unhealthy, it can send signals of anxiety. When you are happy, you tend to eat more healthy foods and often less food.



  1. Would you please tell me what ingredients are in your bone broth. I am allergic to any food from the ocean
    because I am allergic to iodine and also to sulfates. Is the bone broth in liquid form or powder? Thank you,

    • This is powder. It contains no sea products. Sulfates are not listed.

  2. hi,

    Can I buy the bone broth in Johannesburg, South Africa? Who are the people that stock it?

    kind regards,

    • I’m so sorry that we don’t ship the bone broth outside the US. I don’t know where you can purchase it Africa.
