Bone broths have been used for centuries to keep people healthy and to help people get better when they are sick. This is because bone broth is packed with vitamins, minerals and other compounds that are not available in modern diets. Glycosaminoglycans, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, minerals, electrolytes, collagen and healing amino acids to name just a few. As a society, we simply do not eat the way we did during our development and this causes us to be depleted of certain vital nutrients. Bone broth is a perfect way to get those nutrients and maintain health and vitality. Bone broth has become a recent fad and was even featured on ABC news. Some of the things that bone broth can help with are listed below.

Where Do I Get Bone Broth?

This is rather time intensive and the broths must simmer for 12-24 hours. Bone broths are also available in many health food stores and some supermarkets, but you are more likely to encounter preservatives, MSG and other additives that extend shelf life with these. A better choice, if the home-made option is not for you, is frozen, pre-packaged bone broth.
