Bone Broth - A Great Winter Beverage

Bone Broth - A Great Winter Beverage

Bev Dunne

Bone Broth has certainly become hugely popular as a health supplement of late. And with good reason. I’m sure we all know someone who has been talking up the benefits of bone broth. Bone broth is great to be drinking at any time of the year, however it is particularly warming on these cold winter days.

We are often asked about the flavour of bone broths. To enable customers to sample our bone broths we are setting up a pot of bone broth each week in store, to enable customers to sample these nourishing, tasty broths.

This week customers can sample one of our most popular bone broths, Best of the Bone Organic Turmeric, Ginger, and Black Pepper Broth.

Bone broth contains collagen, amino acids, minerals, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, and essential fatty acids. They are believed to be beneficial in helping gut health especially irritable bowel, acid reflux, colitis, and leaky gut. They can also be helpful for bone, joint and muscle health.

By adding turmeric, black pepper, and ginger to a bone broth, there are some extra health benefits.

Turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Many find turmeric to be helpful for treatment of arthritis and inflamed gut and bowel problems. Turmeric is also a powerful antioxidant.  It is believed to improve brain function and in particular help with lowering the risk of degenerative brain function especially in old age. It is also thought to lower our risk of heart disease.

Ginger may also be helpful for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and gut and bowel inflammation. It is often taken to aid digestion and help with acid reflux.

When we add all these ingredients into one nutritious paste, you can see why this broth is so popular.

This particular bone broth comes in a paste with 39 serves per jar. It can be stirred into hot water and sipped as you would any hot beverage. It can also be added to soups, casseroles, or sauces.

Below is a delicious recipe which you may find helpful in finding your path to better health.
