bone broth

Do you suffer from adrenal fatigue?

Do you have dry skin, and hair?

Are you fighting off an infection?

Do you have issues with gut health?

Well, chicken/bone broth has a plethora of medicinal qualities that can help alleviate many health issues. First and foremost, it speeds recovery and healing from illness. Remember, when you were younger your mom gave you chicken noodle soup for your cold??????

The secret lies in the bones and cartilage of the chicken. This is where all the amazing minerals are contained, such as, collagen, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, sulfur, sodium, glucosamine (for joint pain and arthritis), chondroitin sulfates, keratin sulfates(for skin and hair) and hyaluronic acid (for skin, hair and joint health).

It also contains cysteine, which is an amino acid that thins the mucus in your lungs making it easier to expel any mucus when you have a cold.

If you suffer from gut issues, chicken broth helps to heal and seal the gut lining. The nutrients are easily digested and helpful in reducing inflammation along the gut lining.

Some of the medicinal properties include:

  • fighting infections, such as a cold or flu
  • reducing inflammation
  • producing beautiful skin and hair
  • promoting sleep
  • repairing gut health
  • alleviating adrenal fatigue
  • alleviating muscle cramps and spasms
  • reducing malabsortion issues

So you can actually save so much money by making your own bone broth instead of buying supplements to help with inflammation, joint pain and infection.

Enjoy your bone broth like you would drink a cup of tea or add to soup and stews or even use it as a medium for cooking rice or pasta.
