Whenever I feel a cold, I always try to make a huge pot of bone broth. Bone broth is very concentrated in vitamins and minerals to help the immune system. By boiling the bones, the broth absorbs Magnesium (good for bones), Calcium (also good for bone growth and development), Collagen 1 and 2 (helps elasticity of skin, strengthens skin, hair, nails, bones and joints, hydration of skin, maintains firm skin) Glucosamine (helps with joint support), Glycine (can help aid in sleep) and more! Bone broth can also help the gut, and help lining of colon. Bone broth is also known for natural weight loss, and detoxification for body. You can cook with the bone broth or drink it. I drink 1-2 glasses of bone broth a day heated up in a mug, (4-6oz) but when I am sick 2-4 cups.

  1. I have made bone broth just trying to remember how my mother did it ears ago. I didn’t know about the apple cider vinegar. My cousin advised me to roast the bones first. In any case, bone broth is so good for you. I grew up with it, but kind of lost the habit for a long while.
