Do you make your own bone broth, or do you consume bone broth on a regular basis? What is bone broth all about? So much is said about the properties of bone broth and adding more electrolytes to our bodies.
Bone broth is very rich in minerals that help support our immune systems, improves leaky gut and contains healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline. Glutamine is really good to help repair a leaky gut.
It seems as if everybody has a different recipe for making bone broth, so we are going to break this down in chunks so that you can decide what is most beneficial for your body to put into your bone broth.
Bone broth can be consumed as it is or it can be added to homemade soups, meat, fish or even your vegetables. The best is to make your bone broth in a slow cooker (crockpot) for at least 24 hours to enable the most nutrients to be extracted out of the bones. Cooking for this time releases healing properties and is also packed with calcium, magnesium, and many other vitamins and minerals as you will see from the list below.
Throughout generations and different cultures, bone broth has been used as a remedy to promote better health, no wonder that it is always recommended to eat chicken soup when you are feeling ill.
