Comfort by the Cup

by Health & Wellness Retailer Magazine, pages 17-18

Soup has long been considered a comfort food. In fact, many people rely on broths, bisques, and bouillabaisses to help them get through a bout of a cold or the chilliest winter months. It warms from the inside out and is the perfect accompaniment to a salad or your favourite sandwich. Alone or as a side dish, with a good book or a slice of homemade bread, soup is a staple in many people’s lives for both comfort and wellness.

Hot liquids, in general, help to keep the body hydrated, soothe a sore throat and can relieve nasal congestion. In fact, chicken soup, in particular, is notoriously associated with cold and flu recovery because chicken contains an amino acid called cysteine, which is released when made into broth. Dr. Christian Brix of BONED Broth says, “Cysteine is an amino acid that helps improve communication in our immune cells, which aids in the body’s healing process.”

According to The Dieticians of Canada, “Many foods in our diet can be filled with sodium, and too much salt can raise your blood pressure, as sodium draws water from the body to the veins, leaving your body vulnerable to dehydration. Dehydration can lead to unclear thinking, mood changes, digestive issues, and other health issues.”

In other words, consuming soup is not only beneficial for a person’s emotional state; it’s good for the body too.

Dieticians of Canada advise, “Not only is soup perfect for staying cozy and healthy, but soup made with bone broth is rich in minerals that support the immune system and feature collagen, which has been shown to help heal the gut lining from damage; in addition, bone broth has been known to help to make your skin glow and reduce joint pain as well as support digestive health.”

BONED Broth has recently undergone a rebranding, coming back to market as the only federally certified organic brand of bone broth in Canada. BONED Broth was born from co-owner grandma Marie’s Slovakian family recipes, brought over from the old country. She and Dr. Christian Brix along with board member, Dr. Jennifer Dyck, naturopathic doctor remain committed to not only producing the freshest, and most nutrient-packed broths, but also to share the education about the benefits of broth. And, with a new kitchen in Vancouver’s lower mainland, supply demands will not be an issue. “Our greatest challenge was getting the best quality bones. But we have found them,” he says, “and we are more prepared than ever to deliver the best possible bone broth.”

He goes on, “One of the most popular movements in the world of nutrition these days is to follow a Keto or Paleo diet. Bone broth is a superstar for anyone wanting to adhere to a Keto/Paleo program.”

Dr. Brix and Dr. Dyck lecture together, spreading the word about the health benefits and medical upside to regularly consuming bone broth.
