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!
I love making bone broth in my VitaClay because I don’t have to worry about the stove being on: I can leave it cooking overnight or while I’m out, then refrigerate it and use it in everything! Here are a few suggestions of how to use your amazing, nutrient-dense bone broth.
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 don’t get any nasties in your broth!
Here are step-by-step instructions for how to make your very own bone broth at home:
