The Healing Properties of Bone Broth 1


Bone broth is a beneficial food for people recuperating from surgery, illness, child-birth, leaky gut and autoimmune conditions.  Bone broth is easy to digest, nutrient dense, rich in flavor and has been in our ancestor’s diet for thousands of years.  Bone broth comes in the form of fish, lamb, beef, or chicken. Our ancestors used all the parts of an animal to prepare the bone broth such as marrows, inedible bones, tough meat, knuckles, tendons, feet and skin. The bones and the ligaments release helpful healing compounds, including glycine, calcium, silicon, collagen, phosphorus, proline, glutamine, cartilage, sulfur chondroitin, and marrow which are all beneficial to your health.
