Food News: What is Keto Broth and Why is it Good for You?
Keto Broth combines our glycine-rich bone broth with MCT oil and other healthy fats to create one beverage that promotes and supports ketosis.
How does Keto Broth Promote Ketosis?
Ketosis is the ability of the body to burn fat for energy. When the body burns fat (instead of carbs) it makes ketones. In order for the body to be able to burn fat for energy, you need two things:
- The ability to digest that fat.
"The problem is, most people can't digest fat. You can eat all the fat you want, but if your body can't digest that fat, you won't experience the benefits of ketosis."
- Sharon Brown, Founder & CEO Bonafide Provisions
Clinical Nutritionist, NTP, GAPS
If you've tried the keto diet and haven't exactly experienced the life-changing benefits that everyone seems to be raving about (i.e. increased energy, mental clarity, reduced cravings, weight loss), this could be the problem: you're not digesting the fat you're eating.
That's where bone broth comes in.
Bone broth is the BEST whole-food source of glycine - a key amino acid that helps our bodies digest fat.
DRINKING BONE BROTH SUPPORTS YOUR BODY'S ABILITY TO DIGEST FAT.
This is not only critical for people following a ketogenic diet, but, important for everyone in general.
"Even if you're not, 'doing keto', it's crucial that your body is able to digest fat."
WE COMBINED OUR GLYCINE-RICH BONE BROTH WITH MCT OIL - A SPECIFIC TYPE OF FATTY ACID THAT HELPS THE BODY MAKE KETONES.
MCT oil stands for “medium chain triglycerides,” unlike short-chain and long-chain fatty acids (like those found in avocados and olive oil), certain strains of MCTs aren’t digested by your stomach. These strains, caproic acid (C6, or 6 carbon chains), caprylic acid (C8), and capric acid (C10), don't need to be digested. They skip your gut and go straight to your liver, where they’re broken down into ketones.
MCTS = MORE KETONES!
As we said, when your body is burning fat for fuel, it produces ketones. Ketones are the things that produce all those amazing benefits we've heard so much about: mental clarity, energy, boosted metabolism, reduced cravings...
When you supplement your diet with MCTs, your body produces more ketones, which means there’s more fuel for your cells.
The combination of bone broth plus MCT oil creates a power-house combination that both promotes and supports ketosis.
OUR BONE BROTH HELPS YOU DIGEST FAT AND MAKE KETONES, WHILE THE MCT OIL PROVIDES A NUTRIENT-DENSE ADDITIONAL SOURCE OF KETONES.
