Why Make Bone Broth?
By: Anita Nall Richesson
Homemade broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and other trace minerals that aid in bone health. The body easily absorbs the minerals in broth. Bone broth even contains glucosamine and chondroiton – which are thought to help mitigate the harmful effects of arthritis and joint pain.
Rather than shelling out big bucks for glucosamine-chondroitin and mineral supplements, just make bone broth and other nutritive foods a part of your regular diet. Bone broth has been made by traditional cultures since the beginning of time. Its health benefits are countless and it is easy to make, especially with the modern convenience of a crock-pot.
