You Did Not Try Bone Broth YET?

Bone broth is getting a major fuss lately and I believe for a good reason.
It contains a good amount of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, amino acids, and many other nutrients.

Drink it as a snack, or as a meal replacement or before every meal. Either way – my clients swear that it's the cure!

1. Decreases joint pain and promotes healthy bones.

Bone broth is very rich in collagen, making it beneficial to our joint and skin health. Collagen is made up of different amino acids and is considered one of the most abundant proteins in humans. Consuming collagen is also beneficial for our joints, especially since it makes up a large portion of them.

Naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in bone broth along with collagen enhance strength and flexibility in joints.

Doctors recommend Glucosamine supplements to aid in bone health (especially for those with arthritis), but now people are turning to bone broth instead.

When the broth simmers, it pulls Gelatin out of the bones. This is why your stock sometimes solidifies in the fridge - like Jell-O

When you drink the broth, your body absorbs all the gelatin. It strengthens your bones and promotes joint health by providing a cushion-like coating for your joints. This cushion supplements your natural collagen and helps your joints glide without friction. And it's not just for aging bones.

2. Heals leaky gut.

"Leaky gut syndrome" is the term we use to the breakdown of the stomach and intestinal linings. This leads to undigested foods and bloating, which cause toxins and bacteria to "leak" into the bloodstream. I believe this is a cause of food intolerance and allergies.

Bone broth is full of amino acids, which are the building blocks that aid in preventing inflammation in your digestive tract and promote the growth of healthy probiotics.

3. Boosts the immune system.

Bone broth improves the immune system. You are less likely to contract a cold or a flu when you drink it regularly. Bone broth has been linked to improved mood, energy levels, and healthy sleep.

4. Encourages healthy skin and shiny hair.

Collagen is responsible for healthy skin and shiny hair. When your body lacks the appropriate amount of collagen, your body's connective tissue deteriorates and turns into cellulite.

Many people report weight loss when they start drinking bone broth because their level of cellulite is reduced. An increase in collagen intake is also reported to reduce signs of aging, like wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes.

How to prepare?

Recipe
Prep 10 mins
Cook 8 hours
Yield 16

Ingredients

• 2 Kgs beef marrow and bones, or chicken
• 1/2 cup raw Apple Cider Vinegar
• 3 onions, quartered
• 3 carrots, halved
• 3 celery stalks, halved
• Bunch of parsley, 1 tsp. peppercorns
• Add 2 cloves of garlic for the last 30 minutes of cooking.
• You'll also need a large stock pot to cook the broth in and a strainer to remove the pieces when it is done.
• Handful of fresh parsley
• 1 TBSP Himalayan Sea salt

Instructions

1 - Pour water over the bones and add the vinegar. The vinegar ensures the minerals will be pulled out of the bones and into the broth. Let sit for 20-30 minutes in the cool water. The acid helps make the nutrients in the bones more available.
2-Add the vegetables (except the parsley and garlic). Add spices
3-Now, bring the broth to a boil. Once it has reached a vigorous boil, reduce to a simmer and simmer until done.
4-During the first few hours of simmering, you'll need to remove the impurities that float to the surface. A frothy/foamy layer will form and it can be easily scooped off with a big spoon. During the last 30 minutes, add the garlic and parsley
5-Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Strain using a fine metal strainer to remove all the bits of bone and vegetable. When cool enough, store in a gallon size glass jar in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for later use.

Or you can buy ready made in powder or liquid form:
