Why BioCure Loves Bone Broth

Bone broth has been around for centuries and is a great way to ensure every part of the animal is used. Along with resourcefulness, consuming bone broth has a lot of health benefits. The liquid can be made from any animal, using the bones and connective tissue to create the broth. A positive thing about bone broth is that it can be bought in grocery stores or be made at home. This blog will discuss how to make your own bone broth and why we love it. 

The Benefits of Bone Broth

Consuming bone broth is a natural way to replenish and repair the body. It has several nutrients and trace minerals making it a great source of nourishing comfort. Some people opt to consume the broth gradually, 1-2 cups a day, and increase the amount over time. Here are some of the reasons why Biocure loves bone broth:

  • High in protein
  • Contains amino acids – glycine and glutamine
  • Treats leaky gut and digestive issues
  • Improves joint health
  • Boosts immune system
  • High in electrolytes
  • Promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails
  • Tastes delicious
  • Aids with sleep, if sipped before bed
  • High in antioxidant content

Bone broth is low in calories yet high in medicinal properties. A lot of these benefits are interlocked with each other. Consuming healthy amounts of nutrients can help with the quality of sleep, which improves the immune system and aids in joint health, etc. 

How To Make Bone Broth

Making your own broth at home ensures you know exactly what is going into it. Picking up broth from the grocery store is okay, if you’re in a pinch, but it might not contain all of the exact same benefits as homemade. This hearty liquid is a cost-effective and tasty way to get essential restorative properties. Here’s how to make your own at home.

  1. Place the bones in a large pot of water and add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Add a few teaspoons of an acidic ingredient: wine, apple cider vinegar, or lemon. Adding this helps break down the collagen in the bones. 
  3. For additional flavor and minerals, add vegetables: carrots, potatoes, garlic, celery, and onions.
  4. Let the broth simmer on the stove for 5-7 hours. (or our favorite, use a slow cooker and cook for 24 hours)
  5. Remove the bones, but the meat and vegetables can remain.

For maximum benefits, purchase animal products that are pasture-fed and free of antibiotics and hormones. You can make bone broth with the bones of just about any animal. Some animals are preferred over others, but it can be up to personal choice (we like bison bone marrow and chicken thighs). The leftovers can be frozen and used at a later time or even given to your pets.
