When done properly, following the Paleo Chic plan provides more vitamins and minerals than any other mainstream diet plan, leaving your body better nourished.
The Paleo diet is known for eating plenty of meat and has been criticized in that if you follow this specific diet, your calcium intake and bone health will suffer due to the inability to eat dairy. However, calcium doesn't just come from milk and cheese.
A whole foods diet naturally contains calcium and collagen, as well as vitamin D and trace minerals to keep your bone matrix strong from the inside out.
Have you ever tried bone broth or bone marrow?
Bone broth contains minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are essential for your body, and through this method can be easily absorbed. Bone marrow is a fatty Jell-O like substance that is found in the core of bones. Both contain numerous health benefits, most notably in healing your gut lining.
Esther Blum, MS, RD, joins Dr. Holly to discuss the benefits of eating bone marrow, bone broth and organ meats to support your own bone health.
