Why do people take Bone Broth 


Collagen is a protein found in the skin, tendons, muscles and bones and is the most abundant protein in the human body. However, pollutants in the air we breathe, water we drink, food we eat,  UV light and smoking can deplete our collagen and over time we need to replenish this storage through diet or by supplementation.

All our bone broth is made from antibiotic and hormone free Irish grass feed cattle bones with added homemade apple cider vinegar, sourced from local orchards in Northern Ireland to help with the mineral extraction of our broth.

Spear and Arrow Plain Bone Broth has an average of 0.5 grams of Collagen per serving and the Botanical Bone Broth has 1.52 grams.

At Spear and Arrow we use a variety of cattle bones in our bone broth which benefits from the bone marrow and gelatine. Research suggests that gelatine can benefit various gut illnesses such as leaky gut sydrome, IBS and IBD and therefore maybe considered a beneficial added supplement.

Gelatine is also known to support the joints and tendons therefore drinking bone broth pre or post exercise may help tissue repair.

Glutamine can help protect the intestinal barrier and microbiome from damage caused by today’s western diets which although is not generally acknowledged in conventional medicine is often referred to as ‘leaky gut syndrome’ in holistic medicine.

However as many medical and other research papers have evidenced  that 70% of our immune systems is in our gut. This therefore strongly indicates that it is paramount to have a healthy gut to encourage and have a health immune system, especially as we deal with the current illnesses of the 21st century.
