Eight Benefits of Bone Broth
You’ve likely seen “bone broth” popping up more and more over the past few years, whether from nutrition experts’ and dieticians’ high praise to fast casual giants like Panera incorporating broth bowls into their menu…even the grocery aisle. It turns out, there is a bit of clout to the old stand-by recommendation of chicken soup for a nasty cold.
The difference between that condensed can of Campbell’s in your cupboard and an actual, wholesome bone broth is key. Canned soups tend to be heavy on the preservatives, additives and a lot of other unnecessary ingredients, and contain less of those precious natural amino acids, minerals and collagen.
