Guess what we are waking up to this Monday morning? Rise and smell the bone broth! We have had lamb bones slow cooking in water, apple cider vinegar, and salt, along with some veggies, for about 48 hours now, and this morning, it's ready to drink!
Bone broth is a powerful medicine. While the bones were sitting in the slow cooker over the last couple of days, all of the minerals, marrow, and nutrients were being leeched out of the bones and into the broth. See all of that good, healthy fat floating on top of the broth?
Bone broth has been hailed as a "magical elixir". Joint pain? Sick often? Difficulty sleeping? Osteoporosis? Drink some bone broth.
Bone broth helps to:
*Heal and seal your gut, healing Leaky Gut Syndrome. Gelatin found in bone broth helps seal up damaged intestinal walls.
*Protect your joints. Bone broth is high in Glucosamine.
*Look younger. Bone broth is high in collagen.
*Sleep better and improves memory.
*Boosts immune system. This broth is high in minerals and is considered a superfood.
*Builds stronger bones.
And much more.
And if you don't want to make your own at home (although this is best), buy some bone broth at the store. Make sure it's from healthy, organically raised animals. I bought this bag of bones at a certified organic farm- Fox Hollow in Gaithersburg, MD.
