Bone Broth is a Superfood!
Winter time is almost here, and for some, it already is. Nothing can compare to a big, steaming bowl of hot soup on a cold winter’s day. The type of soup you choose to eat is entirely up to you, but Oro Gold School is proud to fill you in on a not-so-new tradition in the soup world: bone broth.
While it may sound strange, at best, bone broth is actually an extremely flavorful and robust stock which is crafted by simmering vegetables and poultry, fish or beef bones in a large pot. The broth that is produced is loaded with vitamins, minerals, collagen, as well as many other fantastic health benefits.
The Origin of Bone Broth
Although it is unknown when or where bone broth originated, we do know that it has been around for centuries as a hearty, healthy meal capable of not only filling your stomach, but filling your body with nutrients as well.
What Bone Broth Can do for You
Bone broth is literally loaded with vitamins, minerals, collagen, amino-acids, calcium, and phosphorous among other minerals. These minerals are easily absorbed through the body in the form of a broth whereas when eaten in other types of food, they are typically expelled and therefore have no nutritional value.
One could also expect to have radiant skin as a result of consuming bone broth, and this is of course fantastic news for women everywhere. The amino acids within the broth contain proline and glycine which are known to fight wrinkles.
This special soup can also give your immune system a kick-start and much needed boost for times of illness. Studies have shown that long cooked bone broths possess the ability to have anti-inflammatory properties, which is fantastic for those suffering from colds or respiratory infections. The anti-inflammatory properties contained within this broth may benefit many health conditions. The amino acid glycine within this broth is responsible for detoxifying the liver, and cleansing the body of impurities and toxins. Many people consume this broth as a detox in itself without taking any further action. Aside from possessing anti-inflammatory properties, this soup also has the ability to soothe the stomach.
How to Make Bone Broth
Bone broth is simple and easy to make. Simply add chicken bones (preferred, however you can use any kind you like) to a pot, and cover with water. Add any vegetable scraps or leftover vegetables you need to use to the pot, and also add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to aid in the extraction of the nutritional properties. Simmer for approximately 6-12 hours or longer.
You can drink this broth any time of day or night, and you can feel proud that you are doing your body a miraculous favor. As a bonus, bone broth tastes fantastic!
