If there is one beautifying ritual we all have in common at In Fiore it’s the inclusion of bone broth in our daily diets. Bone broth is loaded with bioavailable glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) and hyaluronic acid that stimulate cells called fibroblasts which lay down collagen. “The nutrients in bone stocks switch the genes for collagen manufacture to “on,” says Dr. Catherine Shanahan M.D. “Whether in a skin cream or your soup bowl, the same natural ingredients help you look young. But when you ingest them, you infuse all the layers of your skin, and all the other tissues of your body, with rejuvenating nutrients.”
We believe in the virtues of bone broth so much so that we will start a series on broths featuring local San Francisco chefs and their favorite stock recipes and nutritional insights. To learn more about how beauty and health are connected we highly recommend the book: Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, by Catherine Shanahan MD.
