"Liquid Gold" Packs a Powerful Healing Punch

Bone broth has popped up on grocery store shelves nationwide in the last few years.

And I couldn’t be happier about it!

I love to drink bone broth. But I used to have to make my own “liquid gold.” And to be honest… it’s time-consuming.

Now, you can pop down to your local supermarket and grab a nutrient-dense, almost-ready-to-eat meal.

But bone broth is MORE than just a tasty lunch or snack. It packs a healing punch too.

Bone broth has been used as a natural medicine for thousands of years. It’s a way to stock up on specific nutrients we often don’t get enough of in our diet.

Your mother or grandmother may have even made her own special version for sipping whenever anyone got sick. Simply boiling bones—like chicken bones—in water for a very long time eventually produces bone broth.

Boiling releases glycosaminoglycan polysaccharides (GAGs) from the cartilage. GAGs are a type of carbohydrate that looks like gelatin.

Whenever you sip on bone broth, GAGs provide vital nutrients to support and repair your…

  • skin
  • bones
  • cartilage
  • gut lining

Plus, this potent golden liquid contains protein, collagen, proline, glycine, and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.

And, with all those vital nutrients, it means bone broth doesn’t only boost bone and joint health… it can ALSO improve the health of your hair, skin, and nails.

You can simply heat up your store-bought bone broth and drink it. It’s delicious that way. And you’ll find most brands contain minimal unwanted ingredients.

But if you crave variety, you’ll find bunches of recipes online that will allow you to personalize the broth to keep things interesting. For example, after I eat a heavy meal, I like to mix turmeric, ginger, and cloves into mine.

It’s tasty AND calms my stomach.
