Bone broth contains tons of collagen, calcium, phosphorous, glucosamine, and
essential amino acids, making it a potent defense against illness and
inflammation. In addition, it is a great source of gelatin—something we
don't get nearly enough of in the typical modern diet. Gelatin benefits
your gut health, your skin, and your joints and has even been found to
help with sleep.
Of course, the nutritional benefits of bone broth
depend a lot on what the broth is made from. Broth made from
pasture-raised animals raised without antibiotics or
hormones is ideal because it has more nutrients, a better fatty-acid
profile, and fewer toxins than the typical kinds of broth you can buy at
your local grocery store.
