What exactly is the hype about Bone Broth?

I am sure most of you by now have heard the recent hype about Bone Broth if you are at all in tune with fitness and health trends. I have been reading about it quite a bit lately, and while the benefits it touts are enough to get me on board, the task of cooking animal bones in a crockpot for 24- 48 hours is less than appealing to me.

I was reading this great article from the Lululemon Blog about Bone Broth and while reading some the comments I came across a site that makes it (spoiler alert I ordered it) and sends to you frozen with dry ice. More on that in a minute, but first back to this article. Let’s talk about some the benefits!

Bone broth contains calcium, magnesium and boron which are great for building stronger bones, but the real benefits come from the gelatin, collagen, glucosamine condroition and synovial fluid (translation: spinal fluid) that come from slow cooking the bones for an extended period of time, usually between 24 and 48 hours.
 
Advocates say it’s great for your hair, skin and nails, can ward of the flu, prevent infection and boost the immune system.
 
After we turn 24, our bodies stop producing collagen—one of the most coveted elements of bone broth—which provides the skin with strength and elasticity and repairs the tissues and cartilage in our joints, vital for any sort of athlete.
“It’s made up of an animal bone, so your body does very little processing to it.
 
”Runners who are pounding the pavement and athletes who are doing intensive workouts are damaging their cartilage which needs to be repaired and nourished,” Home on the Range Organics owner, Jackie Ingram, “Bone broth is one of the most nourishing things we can treat our bodies to.”
 

If all of that isn’t enough to get you on the bone broth wagon I don’t know what will. But again, making it on my own at home was not something I really wanted to do. I encourage you to read through the comments on the blog. There are tons of great reviews of people who are singing the praises of their own experiences and how amazing the changes in their skin are, etc…. It’s also where I found Wise Choice Market. I ordered the Sampler of Chicken and Beef Bone Broth. The only downside is that I am out of town this week so it is going to arrive when I am gone. Steve will just have to save some for me!

I can’t wait to try it, and share the results with you! I am anxious to hear if any of you have tried it, and what your thoughts/experiences are?!?

Cheers, -SS
