How This Nourishes Your Body
Bone broth and stocks may be one of the most nourishing, life giving superfoods around, and yet very few of us still make or consume them. N.D., naturopath Erika Siegel states, “There’s no food that replicates the nutritional benefits of broth”. It is so healing in so many ways, and traditional cultures have thrived off this stuff for centuries. Not only is it bursting with nutrients, bone broths made from long-simmered bones and vegetables are unsurpassed when it comes to building flavor in recipes, that store bought broths can simply not compare.
Bone broths have been used medicinally throughout the centuries to cure digestive disorders, cold and flu viruses, skin conditions, and a host of other infectious diseases. It was often referred to as the “Jewish Penecillin”, and can heal the body in a very short amount of time. In my personal experience- I have noticed clear skin and increased energy that I was truly not expecting!
Nutritional Profile Bone Broth
“A cure-all in traditional households and the magic ingredient in classic gourmet cuisine, stock or broth made from bones of chicken, fish and beef builds strong bones, assuages sore throats, nurtures the sick, puts vigor in the step and sparkle in love life–so say grandmothers, midwives and healers.”
If you do not want to make your own bone broth, I recommend adding a scoop of one the following to your soups, water, or smoothies to get in all of the incredible nutrients without any of the work!

Superfood Benefits and Reasons to Eat
1. Strengthened Immune System: “Science validates what our grandmothers knew. Rich homemade chicken broths help cure colds. Stock contains minerals in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons–stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain.” Taken from Sally Fallon “Why Broth is Beautiful”.
Try it out, next time you are feeling a little down, drink some bone broth and notice the incredible difference how you feel! Or if you don’t even want to get to that point, start consuming it now and nourish that beautiful body!
2. Glowing Skin and Strong Hair: Want the number one beauty secret that ancient women have discovered long ago? It promotes hair growth, fights aging, wrinkles, and even stretch marks? No, you do not have to pay hundreds to support a gorgeous body- just consuming nutrient dense foods will do the trick- bone broth being a major player!
The collagen and gelatin in bone broth supports hair growth and rejuvenates the cells of the our skin. Our bodies need certain building blocks to manufacture collagen. Gelatin is basically powdered collagen, providing our bodies with what it needs to make healthy skin and hair cells- naturally! You will see the results you are looking for.
3. Strengthens Digestive System: Science has now confirmed the beneficial effects of gelatin taken with food. It aids in the digestion and has been used to treat numerous intestinal disorders. The gelatin in bone broth protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and also helps aid in the digestion of nutrients.
Why I love bone broth- it keeps the digestive system regular- which is crucial for energy, healthy skin, and hormonal balance, and weight loss!
I have worked with many people who have completed a bone broth cleanse(consumed only nutritious bone broth for for three days). Their digestion healed, skin cleared up, and energy was through the roof! If you are dealing with any sort of digestion problem whatsoever, I would recommend drinking bone broth daily.
Bone broths and stocks add immeasurable flavor to our food. Use it in soups and sauces to seriously electrify your taste buds!
I also just like to put it in a mug and sip on it like a nice tea or coffee drink. Weird? I thought so, but the effects are so powerful!
