Have you ever heard of bone broth?
You're going to love how easy it is to make something that offers so many benefits! Bone broth is power-packed with minerals and nutrients that make it especially beneficial for your health.
Making bone broth is both simple and easy. In fact, if you can boil water, you can make a healthy, delicious, bone broth that you can enjoy in a wide variety of ways.
Bone broth is made by prolonged simmering of bones, cartilage, ligaments, and marrow. This process leeches out the minerals and nutrients and produces a rich, healthful broth. The minerals and nutrients in bone broth are concentrated and easily absorbed by the body—even better than taking supplements!
What makes bone broth so healthy?
Some of the minerals and nutrients you’ll experience in bone broth include:
♦ Minerals are essential to the health of our bones, hair, nails, joints, reducing inflammation, and hundreds of other cellular processes. Calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur, chondroitin sulphates, and glucosamine are among those found in bone broth.
♦Amino acids assist the body in everything from boosting the immune system, regenerating damaged cells, the production of sperm, making bile salts, and improving sleep and memory! Bone broth contains: arginine, cysteine, glycine, proline, and glutamine.
♦Collagen and gelatin work wonders for people with food sensitivities and allergies. These nutrients protect and soothe the digestive tract, promote probiotic balance and growth, and reduce wrinkles and cellulite.
Wonderful benefits of bone broth
If your mother gave you soup when you had a cold, she knew what she was doing. We now know that the amino acids in broth help thin the mucus in the lungs and boost the immune system to speed the healing process.
Experts say, “As the health of your gut goes, so goes the health of your body.” Bone broth is easy to digest and helps restore the lining of the stomach, making it a great gut healing agent.
This is another good reason to make bone broth a regular part of your diet. But remember, you want real bone broth and not something out of a can or box. Once you try real bone broth you’ll never want a cheap imitation again!
Making bone broth also offers a creative way to stretch your grocery dollars while doing something very healthy for you and your family.
