Maybe your grandmother has already made bone broth for you in the past, even without knowing all the benefits it has for our health.
Bone broth has become very popular today, especially among people who care about their health. But what is this broth?
It is nothing more than a preparation of bones and cartilage of animals like ox, fish, and chicken, which are cooked in water for long periods (some recipes take even 48 hours to be prepared).
Even though there aren’t, until now, any published studies about bone broth, there are many evidences suggesting that drinking it can be highly beneficial.
Do you want to know why bone broth is so good for your health?

In general, bone broth is highly nutritive. However, the level of nutrients will depend on what ingredients you use since each one of them brings something different to the recipe.
Bones are rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphor, and other minerals that are necessary to develop and strengthen your own bones.
Fish bones contain iodine, essential to the good functioning of the thyroid and a healthy metabolism.
The connective tissue helps keep your joints healthy, and the marrow gives vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6.
All these parts also contain the protein collagen, which transforms into gelatin when cooked, and is rich in many important amino acids.
As the ingredients cook, their nutrients are released into the water, which makes it easy for your body to absorb. It naturally replaces the collagen of our body.
Many people aren’t able to get enough of these nutrients in their diets, so drinking bone broth is a good way to do it.
