I have recently been asked, “is bone broth good for the keto diet?” As keto focuses on the reduction of carbs and the increase of protein-rich foods, then our broth at Boil and Broth is excellent for anyone following a keto diet.
Before we explore is bone broth good for the keto diet? Let’s look at what the keto diet is and how it is helping people with weight loss.
What is the keto diet?
The keto diet has become a recent trend and people are shedding kilos by following the method. The principles of the keto diet are to eat a diet low in carbohydrates, moderate protein, and high in fat. The human body requires energy in the form of glucose to be able to function. However, when following a keto diet, you are restricting carbohydrates and carbohydrates are converted into glucose, so when your body has very low amounts of glucose available for energy, your liver will produce ketones from fat. These ketones are small energy molecules that are used in the replacement of glucose to supply the body with the energy it needs.
How can bone broth help following a keto diet?
Most people who are following a keto diet are looking for weight loss. Weight loss can be inhibited if you have an unhealthy gut.
Symptoms of an unhealthy gut are:
- Inability to lose weight
- Excessive gas
- Burning sensation
- Pain or discomfort in the gut
- Other infections and health problems
Therefore, including some important proteins in your diet could help to improve your digestive system and speed up weight loss.
At Boil and Broth, our bone broth contains a number of proteins that have been proven to have a beneficial effect on your digestive system. It has an impressive combination of nutrients, including collagen, glycine, chondroitin and glucosamine. 
In natural science, it is believed that the proteins found in the broth help to reduce inflammation of the digestive system. Reducing inflammation of your gut is important, because it helps to improve the way in which your gut functions. The breakdown of your food will become easier helping the nutrients and minerals in the food get to where they need to go, as a result your overall body system will start to function better. However, it is important to follow a healthy eating and choosing natural foods over manufactured foods.
Including broth in your keto diet could be a great way to speed up the results of keto, as well as counting towards your protein macros for the day.
