A cure-all in traditional households and the secret ingredient in gourmet cooking, bone broth plays a role in all cultures whether it is used for nurturing the sick or adding flavor to cuisine. This mineral-rich infusion is easy to digest and provides nutrients that are highly absorbable.
Bone broth provides over 19 easy to absorb essential and non-essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein). It contains gelatin, collagen, chondroitin, and glucosamine that are essential to joint and bone health.
And, it contains minerals calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, and sulphur. It’s like a natural multivitamin!
Here are some major bone broth benefits:
✓ Helps heal and seal your gut
✓ Promotes healthy digestion
✓ Reduces joint pain and inflammation
✓ Promotes strong, healthy bones
✓ Inhibits infection
✓ Fights inflammation
✓ Promotes healthy hair growth
✓ Promotes healthy nail growth
Use bone broth when making soups, stews, gravies, sauces, or braising vegetables. During the cold and flu season, drink a cup a day (or more) to boost your immune system as a preventative measure, or, if sick, to help shorten the duration of the illness.
Making your own nutrient dense bone broth is incredibly easy and inexpensive. You can use leftover carcass bones or other bones that are going to be thrown away, or purchase soup bones and chicken feet from your local butcher. Make sure the bones come from healthy animals such as grass-fed beef, pasture raised pork and poultry, and wild-caught fish.
If making your own bone broth isn’t your thing, there are many store-bought options out there for you. Here are four great options to try!
Bare Bones Broth: Made with 100% grass-fed and pasture-raised animals with fresh herbs and spices for additional flavor and health benefits. Stock making is the oldest and most widely taught tradition in cooking, so they honor and embody this tradition in everything that they do, taking absolutely zero shortcuts.
Nona Lim: They make non-GMO, dairy-free, and gluten free bone broths that are inspired by Asian flavors and made from scratch! They are a perfect start to an incredible soup!
Kettle and Fire: It is through their passion for health that they make the most nutritious and delicious bone broth (and bone broth based-soups) possible. They only use bones from grass-fed, grass-finished organic cows and pasture-raised chickens.
Pacific Foods Bone Broth: Made with quality, organic ingredients and cooked slowly to bring out the rich complex flavors that bone broths have to offer. It is very affordable, so it is great to use in soup recipes where you need 4+ cups of broth.
