Bone broth is a powerful wellness tool. It is full of nutrients that aid in digestion and has many restorative properties. Here is a brief overview of each component and how they help our bodies.

Macro and Trace Minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, trace minerals) and Eloctrolytes from cartilage and bone marrow help our body grow and develop.

The majority of the calcium found in our bodies is in our bones and teeth.  It also helps to contract our muscles, send messages through our nervous system and clot our blood. We loose minerals daily through our skin, nails, hair, sweat and waste.

Magnesium supports many other bodily functions such as bone integrity, nervous system maintenance and energy production.

Potassium is an electrolyte that helps our cells and muscles communicate. Our cells use it to move nutrients in and waste out

Trace Minerals such as copper and zinc help support our general bodily functions. We need them in smaller quantities (less than100mg/day) than the macrominerals (greater than 100mg/day).

Protein in the form of arginine and glycine can bond with other amino acids to form complete proteins.

Hydrophillic colloids from gelatin are clusters of water loving molecules that attract our digestive juices to the food suspended in our guts for rapid and effective digestion.

All of the nutrients in bone broth are bioavailable, making it an excellent multivitamin!
