Bone broth has always been a big part of my life growing up. We ate soup with a bone broth base every every single day, and to this day I have carried on this tradition with my family.

Bone broth from oxtail, chicken, turkey, goose, and beef are rich in flavor, are nutrient-dense, easy to digest and boost healing.

Bones along with vegetables such as carrots, celery, onion, and garlic are boiled and simmered for hours. This simmering causes the bones to release collagen, proline, glycine, gelatin which are all valuable amino acids.

Researchers found that the amino acids produced when making bone broth may reduce mucous in the upper respiratory system, soothe the digestive system and reduce inflammation. The broth may inhibit the activity of neutrophils—white blood cells that are the “first responders” of inflammation.

In recent years bone broth has become very popular, not just as a winter food but also for its numerous health benefits.

Bone broth contains Collagen, amino acids in the form of gelatin which can promote hair, skin, nail, joint, ligament and bone health. Collagen can also increase elasticity of the skin; which in turn may minimize wrinkles.

Bones are also highly nutritious as they are rich in vitamins and nutrients, including calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.

Start including bone broth with your meals on a daily basis. It can be as simple as pouring it into a cup and drinking it after Take note and see if you notice any changes in your body.
