The Why,The What And The Who....
Bone broth is made from animal bones and connective tissue which is a by product of the meat industry— typically cattle, chicken, or fish — that have been boiled into a broth and slow simmered for up to 24 hours with herbs, vegetables, and spices. So why is this seemingly simple liquid something you’d want to drink every day?
What is Bone Broth & What Makes it So Beneficial?
Bone broth has a rich history of being used in traditional Chinese culture, for its many benefits: to support digestion, through collagen, minerals, amino acids, and compounds found in bones and connective tissue.
Specific compounds like chondroitin sulfate (used in osteoarthritis supplements) and hyaluronic acid(used in facial cosmetic products) are found in cartilage, connective tissue and bones. All the good stuff!!
Even our hunter-gatherer ancestors realized that drinking bone broth was highly valuable, as its earliest version dates back 1000's of years. Throwing away anything edible was out of the question back then, so animal hooves, knuckles, bones, and other connective tissues never went to waste.
People with leaky gut syndrome have also used bone broth to support their diet.
Plus, the collagen found in bone broth makes it the perfect food to support healthy looking skin.
Is Bone Broth The Same as Regular Stock?
There are two main differences between bone broth and regular broth or stock: simmering time and the part of the animal it's made from (bones or flesh).
Regular broth and stock are simmered for a shorter period of time than bone broth. The expedited cooking process reduces the amount of beneficial gelatin extracted from the bones, limiting its ability to support the immune and digestive systems. Here at Bone Broth Brothers we simmer for up to 24 hours to get the maximum amount of goodness so you guys get the best results.
