Warming bone broth is an interesting addition to the daily diet because of its overall health benefits.

How is bone broth prepared?

Planet Paleo's bone broth is stewed long and hard to extract all its essential nutrients. The stewing process extracts rich nutrients from the bovine bones, such as amino acids, collagen and minerals. The broth becomes nutrient dense and tasty. Finally, the liquid in the broth is evaporated, which concentrates the protein into a powder before spray drying. The end result is an easy-to-use bone broth powder that contains no fillers or unnecessary additives.

Why should you add bone broth to your diet?

The bone broth is a versatile health elixir that is linked to gut health, skin health and joint health. Animal bones are rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium and trace elements needed to strengthen bones.

Bone broth is also high in collagen, an important protein found not only in the skin but also in connective tissues such as joints and tendons. It holds bones and muscles together and protects the intestinal walls.

Bone broth also contains a number of other important nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, chondroitin and glucosamine, which support connective tissues. It's also rich in gelatine, which used to be an important part of people's diets.
