The healing power of bone broth is not new but is certainly making a comeback. Nowadays, you can walk into "broth bars" all around the world and order up a cup as you would a cup of java in a corner coffee shop. Historically, all traditional groups of people have noted boiling the bones of fish, chicken and beef bones to create broths full of benefits - as well as to utilize all of their resources from the animal.
"Good broth will resurrect the dead." South American proverb
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, broth is said to strengthen the kidneys and improve the digestion. Bone broth helps to protect and heal the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and helps aid in the digestion of nutrients. On its own, bone broth is primarily providing key proteins, collagen and gelatin, but the vegetables we simmer it with provide ample minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium. Other key properties make it a great added support for skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes and blood vessels.
