Fountain of Youth Bone Broth
We have all heard about the health benefits of bone broth.
- Nutrient Absorption
- Supports Hair, Skin, Nails & Joints
- Broth is an excellent source of several essential amino acids that are often difficult to get from diet alone
- Gut and Immune Health
- Protects Joints
- Supports immune system function
- Boost Detoxification
- leaky gut syndrome
- autoimmune diseases
- food intolerance and allergies
Bone broth stock could be called nature’s multivitamin, because it is packed with:
- over 19 easy-to-absorb, essential and non-essential amino acids
- collagen/gelatin, which help form connective tissue
- nutrients that support digestive functions, immunity and brain health
- Promotes sleep
- Helps mood
Bone broth benefits literally every part of your body, from your gut to your brain, from your muscles to your ligaments.
It’s also relatively low in calories yet very high in minerals and other chemical compounds that many people are lacking. There’s no doubt that bone broth makes a great everyday addition to your diet.
After getting the Norovirus in 2015 with my newborn and 16 mo old I decided I wanted to go into the bone broth business. Running out of my own bone broth that week I sent my partner to purchase some. It wasn’t what I was looking for in a broth. Especially after making my own broth since 2012, I knew I could bring the truest medicinal product to our area, not only with the highest quality of ingredients and know-how of how to extract the nutrients to an optimal level, but starting at a reasonable price. This all coincided with the fact that I really wanted to go back to work but did not want to leave my children.
My passion and background is in nutrition and physical therapy. I am an Ortho-Bionomist, a massage therapist and an energy worker. I have four
boys and our stage 2/3 TTTS twin survivors are a product of my bone broth. With very slim odds of having them live at all, be born with cerebral palsy or at the very least have them born before 30 weeks was what I was told to prepare for. Through my bed-rest, daily Bone Broth and mega-dosing with Vitamin C (check out Dr Klenner’s medical journals on vitamin C) they became the first ever at Stanford Medical to not have ANY NICU time! We went full twin term and they were born in perfect health.
My broth is made with only the best ingredients starting with the DOUBLE OZONE Water (because it all starts with the quality of water). I use only Organic Pasture Fed Chicken Bones, Feet, Neck and Head (no soy or corn), Organic Carrots, Organic Onions, Organic Garlic, Organic Leeks, Organic Bay Leafs, Organic Parsley, Organic Peppercorns, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Wild Salt (hand mined ancient salt deep within the Himalayan mountains).
I offer a Vegetarian broth with egg shells, which contains type I and type IV collagen. So you get the same benefits as bone broth, but with out the bones. As well as a Vegan option with Rosehips. Rosehips aid in digestion, a huge collagen producer, cancer fighter, aid in digestion, arthritis and more.
Broth vs Bone Broth vs Stock what is the Difference.
- Broth is typically made with meat and can contain a small amount of bones (think of the bones in a fresh whole chicken). Broth is typically simmered for a short period of time (45 minutes to 2 hours). It is very light in flavor, thin in texture and rich in protein.
- Stock is typically made with bones and can contain a small amount of meat (think of the meat that adheres to a beef neck bone). Often the bones are roasted before simmering them as this simple technique greatly improves the flavor. Beef stocks, for example, can present a faint acrid flavor if the bones aren’t first roasted. Stock is typically simmered for a moderate amount of time (3 to 4 hours). Stock is rich in minerals and gelatin.
- Bone Broth is typically made with bones and can contain a small amount of meat adhering to the bones. As with stock, bones are typically roasted first to improve the flavor of the bone broth. Bone broths are typically simmered for a very long period of time (often in excess of 24 hours). This long cooking time helps to remove as many minerals and nutrients as possible from the bones. At the end of cooking, so many minerals have leached from the bones and into the broth that the bones crumble when pressed lightly between your thumb and forefinger.
How to Use Broth
Broth is extremely versatile and many chefs use it as a base for soups, gravies, sauces and more. Here are some great ways to use broth:
- As a base for soups and stews
- In a mug by itself as a warm drink
- As a base for gravy and sauce
- Use it to cook veggies in for extra nutrients
Where to Get Broth
In my opinion, the best way to get broth is to make it yourself. This is the least expensive and most nutrient dense way to get broth if you can find quality (grass fed, organic) bones locally.
