Drinking a cup of bone broth is like sipping on a hug from Gramma!
Bone broth is the new hot beverage of choice. Rich in minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium (hello electrolytes!) selenium, zinc, iron, and phosphorus – all the same minerals needed to build and strengthen bones. But the superpower in bone broth is the collagen, which turns into gelatin when cooked and provides several important amino acids that help our bodies build ALL tissues (including muscle and connective tissues).
If you make your bone broth from fish bones, you’ll also get a good amount of iodine, which is great news for thyroid function and metabolism.
Even better, the minerals and collagen directly influence the health and function of your gut lining. So yup, great hot beverage choice if you’re dealing with digestive issues… but wait [at the risk of sounding like an infomercial 😆] up to 80% of your immune system cells reside in your gut, which means that bone broth is also an immunity superfood!
Bone broth is easy to make with the bones of any meat or fish – AND it’s super low calorie! Of course, you don’t have to just “drink it”. Add your favorite veggies or other ingredients to make it a hearty soup too!
