Mongolians have a long history of recognizing the magic of animal bone marrow and using it in traditional medicine. Nomads from the western region of Mongolia extracted oil from sheep and cattle bone marrow, and nomads in the Gobi of Southern part of Mongolia extracted oil form camel bone marrow and used it to treat internal respiration and fatigue, relaxation, improve immunity, nourish the kidneys, strengthen bones, and rejuvenate the skin. Even today, some older people use marrow oil to lubricate their bodies, and they use marrow to make soup and tea.
Bone marrow is rich in nutrients, minerals, lipids, and unsaturated fatty acids. The use of marrow improves brain function, rejuvenates the skin, protects against osteoporosis, supports the immune system, and accelerates the healing process of any injury or wound.
Lack of fatty acids in the human body can lead to injures, slow wound healing, skin diseases, and weakened immune systems. The marrow contains a lot of essential fatty acids, most of which are non-saturated fats, while the rest are polyunsaturated fats and linoleic acid, which is highly anti cancer. The marrow is rich in omega-3 fatty acid, cleanses liver of toxins and rejuvenates at the cellular level.
Deficiencies in minerals and nutrients can lead to a weakened immune system, infections, chronic fatigue, and cardiovascular and other serious illnesses. The marrow contains calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, magnesium, manganese, and other minerlas ans rich in vitamin A. Pregnant women need these minerals even more. Therefore, it is worth nothing that the marrow improves immunity, supports cardiovascular and renal function, improves emotions, sleep, perception, memory, and reflexes.
The marrow contains alkyl glycerol. It is a vital lipid fatty acid (found in breast milk) that promotes the growth of white blood cells, proliferation in serous diseases of the immune system, such as cancer. Therefore, it is recommended that people with immune system problems use marrow regularly.
