Bone Broth

What Are The Benefits of Bone Broth?

Bone broth is possibly the most traditional food there is, and has been used by every tribal and traditional culture in the world to build strong, healthy bodies from childhood to old age. Bone broth is the foundation of the dietary protocol to heal Gut and Psychology syndrome (GAPS), which explains how broth and the gelatin it contains can heal a myriad of psychological issues such as depression, autism spectrum disorders, chemical imbalances in the brain, and even severe conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder!

Broth is great for hair, skin and nails; it's like a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement all rolled into one, and of course it's got plenty of calcium and is beneficial for bones: growing and already grown! It's even great for healing digestive issues, and with the research linking digestive health with overall immunity and even with brain health, that's something to get excited about!



Ways to Use Bone Broth

So how does one make this magical health elixir, you ask, and what can you do with it once you do? Here at VitaClay we love our bone broth. I make it at my house at least once a week. All you need are some bones (ÔÇťsoupÔÇŁ bones are perfect, or just throw in the left-over bones from a roasted chicken or other meat), some water and a little time.

I love making bone broth in my VitaClay because I donÔÇÖt have to worry about the stove being on: I can leave it cooking overnight or while IÔÇÖm out, then refrigerate it and use it in everything! Here are a few suggestions of how to use your amazing, nutrient-dense bone broth.

  • cook rice or other grains or pasta in broth instead of water
  • add a splash of broth to your stir-fries when they get dry
  • replace water with broth in any savory dish to add flavor and nutrition!
  • Use bone broth as a soup base for any type of soup or stew
  • replace broth for water/bouillon in recipes
  • drink a mug of warm broth with a sprinkle of sea salt before bed
  • if youÔÇÖre trying to quit coffee, try drinking a hot cup of broth in the morning instead

I keep a batch (several jars-full) in the fridge and add it to pretty much everything savory. Sometimes I even drink it from a mug with a little real salt! It can also be frozen if you want to keep it much longer than a couple of weeks, or just make a really huge batch. Bone broth contains many minerals and proteins that are easily absorbed and assimilated by the body. Gelatin often comes out in the broth, especially when using cartilage and joint bones, and can-do wonders for hair, skin, and nails. Gelatin is also a powerful healer of joints and of the digestive tract. Just make sure you get organic or pastured bones from a local farm so you donÔÇÖt get any nasties in your broth!

How to Make Bone Broth with VitaClay

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to make your very own bone broth at home:

      1) Round up bones from bone-in meat you've eaten at meals, or buy soup bones from the grocery store or local farm (soup bones usually have lots of gelatin-making cartilage and even some meat that can be eaten with the soup, if you don't see gelatin in your pot, buy soup bones).
      2) (You can also add veggie scraps from onions, carrots, celery, or anything else to add flavor and depth to your broth onion skins and eggshells can even be used to increase nutrition!)
      3) Place the bones in the VitaClay pot, and fill the pot almost to the top with water.
      4) Set the VitaClay VM7900 on ÔÇťsoupÔÇŁ for about 4-5 hours or VM7800 on ÔÇťSlowÔÇŁ for 9 hours.
      5) After cooking, let the VitaClay do its thing to automatically click-on to "warm mode" for 10-12 hours after setting time is finished.
      6) Then you're set to go! Filter the gelatin/liquid from the bones and enjoy!

    Now it's your turn!
