Benefits of Bone Broth

When I was growing up, I remember in the winter months my mom making soup. She would often start with chicken, turkey, or beef bones to make the stock or bone broth. She would add veggies, whole grains, and other ingredients to make a delicious soup.

It wasn’t till I was an adult that I realized that wonderful flavors of the soup came the homemade bone broth. I also didn’t realize all the health benefits of making homemade broth.

Bone Broth

Supports the Immune System

When sick, most people have soup, as it is a comforting food they have had since they were kids. And there is good reason to have soup that has been made from bone broth, is full of minerals, bone marrow, and other nutrients that support immune system.

Easier to Absorb Minerals

Minerals are essential to overall wellness and need to be consumed through the food we eat. For some people, who do have digestive issues, they can have a hard time breaking down food enough to absorb these minerals, which can lead to deficiencies. However, in the process of boiling and cooking the bones helps release the minerals from the bones, which allows for the body to absorb them easier.

Got a Picky Eater?

Bone Broths are also great for picky eaters (and concerned parents) because the broth is packed full of nutrients even if only a small amount is consumed. Also, if a soup is made from the broth and veggies are added it will help create a balanced meal.
