    Please check my math... Broth contains maybe 2-3% of gelatin solids by weight, I guess? So, you get about .6% glycine in broth, by by weight. You need to drink about 170g of broth to get 1g of glycine. In comparison, meat has about 2% of glycine by weight. So, it takes 50g of meat to get 1g of glycine. It's pretty neat and makes a lot of sense, considering that broth is made out of throw-away products like bones.

    I wonder, also, if broth promotes glycine adsorption better. Meat takes energy to digest.

    Laura, did you go to the conference? I wish I had seen you, would have loved to have met!

Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
