When the collagen found in the connective tissue (think bone, tendons, ligaments, marrow and cartilage) of vertebrate animals such as chicken and cows is converted to gelatin through the cooking process, consumption of this bone broth can boost the immune system, improve joint health, heal the digestive tract and aid in management of food intolerance and allergies. It can even reduce cellulite and boost collagen in the connective tissue of the skin, resulting in a healthier, smoother complexion.

First used in Functional Medicine in Ancient China, homemade Bone Broth has continued to be a staple in Eastern diets as compared with our Western addiction to carbs and processed foods. The fats in Bone Broths heal the gut, allowing greater absorption of minerals like calcium and phosphorus and improving symptoms of autoimmune disorders, Chrohn’s Disease, acid reflux, ulcerative colitis and IBS.

Gelatin in Bone Broth contains conditional or nonessential amino acids like arginine, glycine, glutamine and proline, which are necessary for immune system function, healing and growth. If you are ill or stressed, you can kick start the production of these vital amino acids with Bone Broth. Bone Broths are also known to support the adrenal glands and blood health, improve kidney function and strengthen teeth.
