Bone Broth: Elixir to Health

broth mastersThere are so many health benefits to bone broth. It is loaded with calcium, protein, potassium, collagen, and amino acids. But the benefits go beyond this.  Bone broth has been found to reduce inflammation as it is high in sulfated glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) and glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, which numerous studies have found help reduce inflammation (and pain) in the body.

All said, bone broth is powerful nutrition for anyone struggling with the side effects of conventional cancer treatment. Soothing to the throat and nourishing to the body.

The gelatin in bone broth supports healthy digestion. Importantly, bone broth helps repair the lining of your gut, which is something we hear about all of the time now.  Gut health=overall health. Leaky gut is the root cause of autoimmune disorders and many cancers.

You can make your own bone broth quite easily. Simply put the desired bones (chicken, beef, or a combination of both) into a pot; add some apple cider vinegar and let sit for about an hour. Add water to cover the bones, add a bunch of chopped vegetables and Celtic sea salt and boil. (You can google a plethora of recipes).  The problem for most of us is that you have to simmer this concoction for 24-72 hours, which can be an issue.

Hence, most of us resort to store-bought versions, which lack nutrients and taste. Some are down-right unhealthy, containing pesticides, fungicides, fluoride, and more.

This weekend I attended a wellness conference geared towards optimal health for all. I was gifted the opportunity to taste the best bone broth ever.  So, if you don’t have the time or desire to make your own, please know that Broth Masters broth is amazing. The combination of chicken and beef bones combined with the vegetables boosts the flavor.

I am not a fan of selling anything, but these folks are lovely—health conscious right down to the bone (pun intended).  However, right now if you use the code BROTH4LIFE you can receive $10 off your first order and if you buy a 20-pack, you get free shipping. Bon Appetit.
