Does anyone know what amino acids are present in beef bone broth?

I just ordered Julie Ross's "Diet Cure" with the hopes of addressing sweet cravings. I know she uses various amino acids to help with this, but I prefer to get nutrients from real food. I really like the idea of bone broth and was wondering if anyone knew what besides gelatin and various minerals was in it.

Has anyone felt like drinking it lessened their desire for sweets?

Awesome, no worries :) In case you ever need more reasons and/or info on why we might want to quaff the broth - I re-stumbled on an article today where Mark Sisson covers all the main goodies beyond aminos, too: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/cooking-with-bones/#axzz2Ei3VYO1H

Great reference! I am listening to the Sarah Pope now. Both inspire me to keep up with my daily pint of BB! Thank you.

Well, gelatin IS various amino acids. Glycine and Proline are the most prominent. Almost all are present in natural gelatin. Tryptophan is not (however, it may be in marrow or meat hanging off the bones).

Scroll down to "Amino Acid Profile." I know it's just gelatin, but it should give you a rough idea of what's in your bone broth.

Agree with Dan above. One of the most useful amino acids in bone broth (though they're all good) is glycine, which helps the liver perform its detoxifying actions.

Calcium, magnesium and potassium are also to be found in the mix, along with myriad other trace minerals and benefits.

Here's a fab article from Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness blog: http://undergroundwellness.com/top-5-reasons-why-bone-broth-is-the-bomb/

Also on the page is a great interview with Sarah Pope all about - you guessed it - bone broth.

I drink it in a mug alongside nearly every meal and rarely crave sweets now - but I suspect that the main reason for craving less sugar, is cutting the sugar.
