You may have heard the buzz around bone broth recently, and it’s for good reason! This ancient beverage has been consumed as a healing food for thousands of years and it was a way our ancestors made use of every part of the animal. The health benefits of bone broth are numerous and extensive, so let’s break it down.
What is bone broth?
It’s exactly what it sounds like: a nutrient-dense broth made from animal bones, ligaments, and tendons.
How is it made?
Our bones are first seared and roasted, then soaked in water and lemon to gently break them down. They are then simmered low and slow over many hours to draw out the protein and mineral compounds (like potassium, magnesium, and collagen, to name a few). We also add Rosemary to the simmer process – a known digestive aid, which also happens to add great flavour.
What makes bone broth so healthy?
This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, amino acids, gelatin, and trace minerals. What makes it so healing is how readily absorbable it is, meaning your body can digest it very easily. The health benefits range from improved digestion and overall gut health, to aiding joint pain, improved immunity / brain function, and maintaining healthy skin.
