Nature's Multi-Vitamin: The Many Benefits of Bone Broth (with Crock Pot Recipe)

Medicinal Bone Broth

I must admit, when I first heard about bone broth, I wasn't sure quite what to expect. It took me getting a 'winter bug' to give this soup dubbed 'Nature's Multi Vitamin' a try and I was so happy I did. After enjoying homemade bone broth, I set out to discover all of the benefits and I want to share them with your family in hopes that you will add this medicinal soup to your daily nutritional routine. I was pleasantly pleased with all of the benefits this broth offers and can't wait to share them with you.

For starters, bone broth isn't touted 'Nature's Mutli' for no reason. It boasts over 19 easy-to-absorb, essential and non-essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). Collagen/gelatin which helps form connective tissue and promotes strong hair and nails (and who doesn't love that!). And it offers nutrients that support your immune system, good digestion, and brain health.

Bone Broth is excellent for promoting overall gut health and helping with 'leaky gut'. It does this by proving a concentrated source of vitamins, amino acids and minerals as well as vital proteins that help to greatly build up your bodies nutritional reserve. 

Leaky gut is something many people suffer with and can result from poor food choices, environmental factors, use of antibiotics and overall chronic inflammation that destroys your gut lining which in turn allows toxins into your blood stream. Long term, this can lead to chronic diseases and conditions.

Hi fclewein, Thank you for the great question! Yes, you can use it for a cooking medium or you can take it up a notch and make soap with it. Many people do drink the fat however, it depends on your nutritional needs. The fat can help even further to soothe and heal a very advanced case of gastrointestinal damage of the gut. If you want to increase the medicinal quality of your broth, you can infuse organic turmeric powder or raw turmeric root in the broth as well to help further increase the absorption of nutrients. THANK YOU for the kind words and great question! If you ever have any more, please don't hesitate to reach out via our links above (click our names in the by: line) In health, Alex and Ashley Poptodorov

I LOVE making my own broth, but I've already learned some new 'tricks' just reading your recipe! I also use a huge eletric roaster oven (which is certainly akin to a crock pot!); it allows me to make a HUGE amount of broth at one time! My question is----do you save the fat? I never have, but kept thinking how beautiful & WHITE that 'stuff' was while I was skimming it off into the scrap bowl!! SURELY, this would be good to use....??? Please advise me!!!! Thanks!!
