5 reasons you should be including bone broth in your weekly routine!
Weston A. Price spent an entire decade interviewing the world’s healthiest people. When he arrived in the Rocky Mountain Range in the far north of Canada, he wrote this about the eating habits of the native peoples there:
“…It is important that skeletons are rarely found where large game animals have been slaughtered by the Indians of the North. The skeletal remains are found as piles of finely broken bone chips or splinters that have been cracked up to obtain as much as possible of the marrow and nutritive qualities of the bones.”
There is a reason why native people have been consuming bone broths for thousands of years. And why your grandmother’s chicken soup always seemed to cure what ailed you. The health benefits of simply simmering the marrow and joint bones of beef, chicken, lamb and even fish for 24 to 48 hours are tremendous. Though you do not have to do that now with bone broth concentrates available.
Bone broth contains 19 essential amino acids. As well as other healing substances in an easy-to-absorb way. That lubricates, nourishes, restores and fortifies every system in the body.
Bone broth should be an integral part of everyone's healing and the prevention of illness toolkit. Below are five ways that drinking at least one cup of bone broth every day, especially first thing in the morning, can be beneficial to not only illness prevention but cancer prevention also.
- Bone broth super-boosts the immune system.
We all have a certain number of toxic cells swimming around in our bloodstream at any given time. It is the job of a healthy immune system to hunt these pathogenic cells out and destroy them before they get out of hand. Bone broth contains the amino acids arginine (essential for immune system and liver function), glutamine (which helps with metabolism), and glycine (which aids in glutathione production and also quality of sleep). Bone marrow that liquefies over time as your soup simmers is especially beneficial to the immune system. This marrow will contain lipids, especially alkylglycerols, which are vital for the production of white blood cells. Alkyglycerols also appear in colostrum from the mother’s milk and has been found to control cancer tumor cell growth.
- Bone broth contains collagen, which can stop the spread of cancer.
The collagen content in the bones in your broth will break down into gelatin. This is why when you put the broth in the refrigerator after it is done, you will see a jiggling layer on top (tip: DON’T throw that away!). This naturally sourced gelatin is very beneficial on many levels, especially for autoimmune disease and leaky gut. In addition, because collagen itself supports the function of healthy connective tissues, it may also prevent cancer tumor metastasis, according to the ground-breaking research of Dr. Matthias Rath. If you do not want to get your slow cooker on opt for our Best of Bone Concentrate.
- Drinking bone broth helps to reduce inflammation.
An inflammatory response. Several studies have linked the substance chondroitin sulfate, found in bone broth, to both anti-inflammatory as well as immune-regulatory effects.
- Bone broth helps heal the gut.
Recall that about 80 % of all immune system cells reside in the digestive system. This means that as you heal your gut, you are also healing your immune system. Bone broth is an important component of this healing. According to Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of the book and nutritional program Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), “bone broth helps to seal and heal the gut.” This in large part is due to the glycosaminoglycans (or GAGS) found in it. GAGs help to restore the intestinal lining. They also play a role in maintaining collagen and elastin content between tissue fibers.
- Bone broth supports detoxification.
Anyone who has been on a healing path with cancer or any other disease knows that detoxifying the body is one of the key steps to regaining health. Regularly drinking bone broth assists the body’s natural detoxification pathways by helping the digestive system remove waste. It strengthens the liver, and its potassium and glycine content support detoxification pathways as well. Finally, the antioxidant glutamine as well as other amino acids contribute to the elimination of heavy metals.
So, there you have it: the 5 BIG REASONS why bone broth should be a part of your daily or weekly healing and wellness protocol.

Using only certified grass-fed beef leg bone (highest in marrow and nutrients including conjugated linoleic acid). We then cut the leg bones and slow-cook them for more than 50 hours - ensuring maximum nutrient extraction from the cooked bones. The result is a thick, nutrient-dense bone broth extract, also known as a gelatin (which is known as cooked collagen).
