  • Why Bone Broth?
    • Bone broth is an easy and nutritious way to support skin, bone, joints and cartilage health.

      • Cartilage is the key component of ligaments (what holds bone to bone) and tendons (what holds muscle to bone).
      • Homemade bone broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and other trace minerals.  The minerals in bone broth are more easily absorbed by the body than in supplements.   
      • Bone broth contains both glucosamine and chondroitin, common natural remedies for arthritis.  Glucosamine and chondroitin are thought to help mitigate the deleterious effects of arthritis and joint pain preserving the bone and cartilage.  
      • Bone broth is also rich in glycine which supports the body’s detoxification process and is used in the synthesis of hemoglobin (the iron binding component of a red blood cell), and other naturally-occurring chemicals within the body.  Glycine also helps in the synthesis of bile salts supporting digestion and the secretion of gastric acids.  
      • Proline is also rich in bone broth and when paired with vitamin C, supports good skin and cartilage health.  
      • The marrow of the bone used to make the broth is rich in gelatin.  Gelatin is a high source of protein.  It helps heal the lining of the intestines and can also support skin, bone and hair health.

  • Continue to cook the broth until the chicken bones become flexible and rubbery, for 24-hrs or longer.

  • Use as a soup, in soups or in anything else that needs water (ie. quinoa or pasta).
