Bone Marrow Benefits

19 September 2023

If you've ever made lamb shanks or osso bucco, you will be familiar with bone marrow. Maybe you love it (like me) or you hate it but either way, there's no denying its amazing benefits.

Considered a delicacy in some countries and making an appearance on restaurant menus, bone marrow is incredibly nutritious!

Besides it being tasty on crusty bread as a butter substitute, we are here today to discuss its nutritional and health benefits.

Nutrition in Bone Marrow 

The nutrients in bone marrow are as follows:

  • Vitamin A: 1% of recommended daily intake
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 1% of recommended daily intake
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): 6% of recommended daily intake
  • Methylcobalamin (B12): 7% of recommended daily intake
  • Vitamin E: 2% of recommended daily intake
  • Iron: 4% of recommended daily intake
  • Phosphorus: 1% of recommended daily intake

Bone marrow also contains collagen, glycine and protein.

Potential Benefits of Bone Marrow

Studies show that consuming bone marrow can help in many ways, such as:

Lowering the risk of weight-related diseases. How might it do that you may be wondering? Because bone marrow is rich in the hormone that helps to break down fat - adiponectin. 

Adiponectin is known to help regulate glucose levels, the metabolism of lipids (fats) and also insulin sensitivity. That's because it has anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic and antioxidant effects. 

According to the Cleveland Clinic: 

"Lower-than-normal adiponectin levels are associated with several endocrine and metabolic conditions including obesity, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome"

We aren't saying that eating bone marrow (or taking in a supplement form), is prevention in itself but it certainly could be added to your health/supplement stack to help boost overall wellbeing and nutrient intake.

Good nutrition after all, is one of the cornerstones to good health, vitality and longevity.
