Chicken Soup has always been the 'Go to' when you're sick, but we are starting to understand why! Here are just some of the Benefits of Bone Broth

*The gelatin found in bone broth is a hydrophilic colloid which promotes healthy hair and nail growth as well as healthy digestion.

*It boosts the immune system, fighting infections caused by cold and flu viruses

*An anti-inflammatory that reduces joint pain

*High in calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients important for healthy bone formation

*An excellent source of several essential amino acids including:

Glycine: for DNA and RNA synthesis and digestive health. Helps blood sugar regulation and digestion, enhances muscle repair/growth by increasing levels of creatine and regulating Human Growth Hormone secretion from the pituitary gland.

Proline: Promotes skin elasticity and smoothness(Salma Hayek claims it saves her from resorting to Botox!)

Best of all, a good Bone broth tastes great and is also a great first baby food. Kids dig it too.
