The benefits of mushroom bone broth
There’s a reason why our mushroom bone broth is one of our most popular flavours… Mushrooms are a rich, low-calorie source of fibre, protein and antioxidants, helping to reduce the risk of health conditions like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals like selenium, copper, thiamin, magnesium and phosphorus, you’ll feel good about sipping on our mushroom bone broth!
For an extra kick of flavour, we’ve utilised three kinds of health-boosting mushrooms: reishi, shiitake and lion’s mane. Here’s what you need to know about these three superfoods!
Eastern medicine often uses different plants and fungi for healing purposes, and reishi mushrooms are particularly popular thanks to their ability to boost the immune system, fight infections and fight cancer. Otherwise known as Ganoderma lucidum and lingzhi, reishi even has the potential to reduce the effects of depression and introduce more antioxidants into the body.
Shiitake mushrooms (otherwise known as Lentinula edodes)are native to the mountainous regions of Japan, Korea and China, where it grows on fallen logs — which is why shiitake has a distinctively rich, earthy flavour. Like reishi, shiitake mushrooms have been used throughout Eastern Asia for both food and traditional medicine — in fact, people in China were cultivating shiitake mushrooms around 1000 to 1200 years ago!
Shiitake mushrooms have one of the highest amounts of natural copper i.e. the mineral that supports healthy blood vessels, bones and immune systems. Just half a cup of shiitake mushrooms will give you 72% of your daily recommended copper intake!
Lion’s mane mushrooms (otherwise known as hou tou guor yamabushitake)are white, furry-looking mushrooms that resemble a lion’s mane when they grow (thus the name). Many people describe the flavour as “seafood-like” and it has often been compared to crab or lobster, which is why it can be enjoyed in so many different forms — raw, cooked, dried, steeped in tea or in bone broth!
Lion’s mane extract can actually be found in a lot of over-the-counter health supplements and has the potential to protect the body against dementia, mild symptoms of anxiety and depression, ulcers and problems in the digestive tract, and much more.
Why bone broth?
We all want youthful skin, hair, nails and joints… but rather than searching endlessly for the fountain of youth, we’ve delivered it in a bottle of mushroom bone broth.
The secret to long-lasting vitality actually starts in the gut. When our gut is working properly, we can absorb a multitude of vitamins and nutrients, and we can gain the maximum benefits from our food — for example, we can achieve increased collagen production, allowing us to produce stronger hair, shinier nails and pain-free joints.
Our mushroom bone broth is designed to boost gut health and deliver the “fountain of youth” we’re all looking for! In one cup of bone broth, you’ll find the following benefits — and more.
Increased gut health
Our mushroom bone broth is produced as gelatin so you can increase your protein intake without the upset stomach that comes with other powdered supplements. Plus, with all-natural herbs, spices and ingredients to boost absorption and gut function, you’ll feel good about sipping on a cup of mushroom bone broth each and every day.
Increased collagen production
Collagen is a structural protein that’s found in more than 70% of our bodies. Otherwise, known as the “glue” that holds our bodies together, collagen begins to decrease as we age, leaving our joints aching, skin wrinkled and nails brittle. However, if we continue to add collagen into our diet via a cup of bone broth each day (alongside our 18 Amino Acid Blend), we can strengthen our hair, skin, nails, muscles and joints with ease.
Increased overall health
Whether you’re lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant or full-blown paleo, our mushroom bone broth is the ideal supplement for what’s missing in your diet. Each scoop is dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free, ensuring you only consume the best age-defying proteins and nutrients available on the market.
How we make mushrooms in beef broth
Making genuine, delicious bone broth can take between 12 and 48 hours to boil and simmer at home. Rather than taking valuable time out of your schedule to watch over a pot of bone broth, we’ve done the hard work for you — a bottle of our mushroom bone broth contains 25 to 35 servings and can last up to six weeks in the fridge. Plus, preparing a cup of bone broth is easier than making a cup of coffee — just add one to two teaspoons of bone broth into a cup of boiling water and stir. It’s that simple.
Our bone broth is made using the bone and connective tissue of 100% grass-fed Australian and New Zealand beef. These ingredients are important to us — we believe that bone broth is only as good as its ingredients, and Australia and New Zealand have the highest standards of farming and regulation in the world.
Where regular stock is made from the bones of cattle that have been exposed to hormones and antibiotics, our bone broth delivers all of the good stuff and none of the bad.
We boil beef bones and connective tissue down into a broth, then simmer the broth for 48 hours with all-natural herbs, spices and ingredients like reishi, shiitake and lion’s mane mushrooms.
The result is an instant and delicious bone broth that you can add to recipes, use as stock to cook grains like rice and quinoa, and even just drink in a cup of boiling water.
