Bone Broth Recipe

Delicious soups have an allure for any winter meal, but I have learned that there are outstanding health benefits to the regular consumption of bone broth. Many cultures serve broth as a staple in their diet, and there are fantastic health reasons to do so. The broth is easy to make, the trick is it takes a while to cook. Here is a summary of the key reasons to consume broth and a simple recipe.

Reasons to Consume Bone Broth

  • The gelatin found in bone broth is a hydrophilic colloid that attracts and holds liquids, including digestive juices, thereby supporting proper digestion
  • Bone broth reduces joint pain and inflammation courtesy of chondroitin sulfates, glucosamine, and other compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage
  • Amino acids such as glycine, proline, and arginine in bone broth all have anti-inflammatory effects
  • Bone broth contains high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients that play an important role in healthy bone formation
  • Bone broth can be made from any type of bones you like – chicken, beef, pork, or even fish – but seek bones from organically raised, pastured, or grass-fed animals
