Bone marrow is considered a delicacy in many cultures and is gaining popularity in the keto and paleo community because of the wealth of nutrients (and the taste!) that can be found within it. In fact, when animals prey upon each other, they have been seen to go directly for the bone marrow, knowing it’s full of nutrients they need to survive. The marrow can be found in the middle of bones of animals such as fish, birds and mammals. The larger the animal, the larger the bones and therefore, more bone marrow.
Bone marrow aids in joint health and the immune system and is full of protein in the form collagen. Bone marrow is also full of essential omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals (calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, magnesium, manganese). It helps promote a healthy digestive tract by sealing liquids to help absorption and fighting inflammation. Drinking the bone broth after boiling bones and bone marrow has been reported to help alleviate symptoms of keto flu! It’s an electrolyte powerhouse.
