Bone broth is an ancient food that many cultures have made a consistent part of their diet for ages. 

The benefits of bone broth are remarkable and extensive. Everything from being high in amino acids, rich in collagen, helping boost the immune system, aids in leaky gut syndrome and has been shown to help overcome food intolerances.
