Bone broth is a powerful way to promote gut health, up your immunity and heal after pregnancy and even surgery. Although it’s super trendy to make and sip on, bone broth has been used for thousands of years. I think our ancestors understood that so many parts of the animal could be used for the benefit of healing. The slow process of simmering bones, allows for the healthy minerals and compounds to be released—like collagen and glycine, which are such profound compounds that can promote healing and reduce inflammation in your gut.
I like to tell my patients to make a batch or two of bone broth ahead of time and freeze it. That way, when they’re fighting off a cold or virus, it’s ready to be defrosted and sipped on! Those of you who are working to heal a leaky gut can make this weekly and sip on it every morning on an empty stomach! I find it to be a comforting part of my routine.
Check out this quick tutorial, and I think you’ll find it’s not a hard recipe to tackle. Once you get the hang of it, you can tweak and build on to make it your own. Enjoy!
