What is it?
Bone broth or stock is a soup made from bones of beef, lamb, poultry, or fish. This bone broth has been used by traditional cultures for thousands of years. It is known as longevity soup in Chinese culture and the cure-all chicken broth is referred to as ‘Jewish penicillin’, due to its healing powers.
Although the sound of consuming bone broth is a little off putting to some, the nutritional benefits are second to none. (And it tastes pretty good too.) Our ancestors knew about the healing properties of foods and were masters in using food as medicine.
As one of the most nourishing foods you can offer young children, bone broth is rich in bio available nutrients including minerals such as calcium & trace elements including magnesium, and phosphorus . As a rich source of gelatin it also allows food to be more easily digested.
‘Good broth will resurrect the dead’ says a South American proverb. For centuries, broth made from beef or fish have been known to heal the digestive tract and this wisdom was passed on through the generations. Scientific research now validates (what our ancestors knew all along) that nutrient-rich bone broth provides building blocks for the rapidly growing cells of the gut lining and that they have a soothing effect on any area of inflammation in the gut.
