Bone Broth is rich in minerals and proteins and is derived from simmering the bones and connective tissues of chicken, preferably farm-raised, free-to-roam chickens.

Often used as a base for soups, stews and the like, a few benefits of drinking bone broth alone are:

  1. It contains a host of vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, vitamins A & B, and the protein collagen.
  2. Aids in easier digestion and inflammation in the digestive tract. A good go-to for those who suffer from leaky gut or ulcerative colitis.
  3. Helps with inflammation, not only with digestion but also with the respiratory and pulmonary systems.
  4. Great for improved joint health as it relates to the bones, tendons, and ligaments.
  5. Great for weight-loss as its filling and low in calories.
  6. Aids in improved sleep and brain functionality.
