7 Reasons Bone Broth Should Be In Your Diet

Bone broth is a cooking technique that’s been used for centuries. But it’s just recently become a fad here in the States as a way to prepare soups, stocks, and stews. So what exactly is bone broth? In short, it’s boiled animal bones, cartilage, or ligaments. And when you simmer those parts down it releases healing compounds like glutamine, proline, collagen, and glycine.

Additionally, bone broth contains minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb, such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulfur, and others. These things can all help to …

1.improve joint health, thanks to a rich amino acid profile that includes glucosamine.

2.strengthen bones and teeth with high calcium and phosphorous content.

3.provide nutrients and healthy fats to balance and regulate hormones.

4.maintain healthy hair, skin, and nails.

5.heal “leaky gut” and enhance absorption of minerals.

6.boost immune functions.

7.ward off the flu.

Purchasing store-bought stock or broth isn’t the same as DIY bone broths; some commercial brands often contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) or lab-produced meat flavors. Instead, use animal products that have been pasture-fed and free of antibiotics and hormones. It’s like the old axiom goes — you are what you eat. Items you need to make beef or chicken bone broth:

Large pot or slow cooker

Bones – knuckle, neck, foot, chicken carcass (a mixture is best)

Vegetables – onion, celery, carrots, garlic, peppercorns, and herbs

Filtered water

Apple cider vinegar (this helps coax the minerals and nutrients out of the bones)

Time — let simmer for 12-72 hours

Strainer — once done you strain the broth and cool

It’s recommended to drink bone broth on a daily basis or use it in soups, stews, gravies, and other recipes.
