1. Bone broth is made by slow cooking the bones, skin, cartilage, tendons, and even feet from an animal in water for 24 hours or longer. Typically made from the bones of chicken or beef, it can also be made from lamb or fish. An acidic medium (vinegar or lemon juice) is added to the cooking liquid to pull the minerals out of the bones while they cook, depositing the minerals into the broth. After the broth is cooled in the refrigerator it congeals into a gelatin. The longer the bones cook in the broth, the more gelatinous it becomes. The end result is a rich, healthy source of nutrients. If you don't already make bone broth, would you consider doing it?
2. Here are the health benefits of bone broth: -The gelatin in bone broth protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and helps aid in the digestion of nutrients. -Bone broth fights infections such as colds and flu, by reducing the number of white blood cells, which are the cells that cause flu and cold symptoms. -Reduces joint pain and inflammation. -Gives you healthy skin, nails and hair. -Helps with bone formation, growth and repair. -Healthier than buying supplements. -The amino acid glycine found in bone broth can be very calming. -Bone broth is very high in the anti-inflammatory amino acids glycine and proline. Did you know bone broth had all these health benefits?
3. Making your own broth is also very frugal. Especially if you already cook a whole chicken or cuts of meat that contain bone. Broth can be used to make soups and stews, or as cooking liquid for rice, beans, etc. Would you be interested in using bone broth to add extra nutrition to your food?
