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. Below are some advantages of consuming bone broth and why you may want to consider saving those bones after Thanksgiving!

1. PROTECTS THE JOINTS -  Bone broth is one of the foods highest in collagen that our body can easily absorb. Collagen is the protein found in vertebrae from animals. As we get older naturally we loose cartilage as it gets attacked by antibodies. As you cook bone broth and it simmers for hours, collagen from the bones is released and more easily absorbed in our own body helping to restore cartilage. 

2. GOOD FOR THE GUT - Bone broth is high in gelatin which studies have shown can help rebuild the lining of...
