More and more you may start to see pictures of “bone broths” popping up on your Facebook and Instagram feeds or maybe you’re starting to hear people talk about this new health food trend.
Bone Broth is made by boiling high quality animal bones (bison, beef, chicken, etc.) in water with vegetables, herbs and a bit of apple cider vinegar for hours/days until you have pulled the nutrients out from the bones leaving you with a delicious and nutritious broth.
While one good use for this is to use in cooking and making soups, many people are even drinking a warm cup of bone broth by itself as breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up. While not a lot of clinical research has been done on the subject, many adopters are reporting relief from digestive issues and skin problems when adding bone broth to their diet.

Quality bones (like our bison soup bones) are full of calcium and collagen (which turns to gelatin when you cook it). “Gelatin is loaded with glycine, a powerful anti-inflammatory amino acid, and it’s rich in other healing nutrients including magnesium,proline and arginine,” according to Dr. Kellyann Petrucci, M.S., N.D. who has been a fan of bone broth for over a decade. Dr. Petrucci outlines several more benefits to Bone Broth in her article, including weight loss and joint protection.
Bison Bone broth is easy to make in your own kitchen. The key is starting with high quality bones like our bison bones which are full of marrow and will help you make a delicious and nutritious bone broth!
