The Amazing Delights of Homemade Bone Broth
By JB Bardot
Bone Broth is a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients that can heal and nourish the body from the inside, and drinking a glass every day will help the body fight conditions such as inflammation, leaky gut, joint pain, immune disorders and candida. Known as the magic elixir, bone broth was a common dish just a few decades ago and was used as a stock to add flavor to soups and sauces. Now it has been replaced with small, foil-wrapped stock boullion cubes that simulate the taste of meat and contain none of the nutrients found in real broth such as collagen, gelatin, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium to name just a few.
Most people are familiar with the custom of preparing chicken soup for those suffering from colds and flu, and when prepared properly it is much more than a simple comfort food. Boiling animal bones for a long period of time will release nutrients such as bone marrow and glycine, and these boost the immune system and help the body fend off any invading viruses and bacteria. Bone broth can also help you reverse the signs of aging as the high level of collagen will transform your skin, hair and nails and make you look radiant and healthy without the need for expensive creams and face peels. It can also be prepared with only a few dollars, and it is a cheap and delicious way to flood your body with vital nutrients that will help your body detox and start repairing damaged tissue.
