Taking stock of bone broth

Written By

Trendy cafes are serving steaming hot cups of bone broth, and natural health practitioners are recommending this century-old elixir as a boost for good health. Here’s Go Vita’s guide to all things bone broth.

Broth made from certified organic bones, slowly simmered in water, for 18 to 24 hours, with a few vegetables, herbs and a splash of apple cider vinegar, is rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, healthy fats, and amino acids. Nutrients are leached into the liquid before bones and other solids can be discarded, making broth easily digestible. The addition of vinegar helps in the extraction of minerals from bones. The resulting broth is a nutritious healing soup containing collagen (which turns into gelatin when cooked which is high in glycine, proline, glutamine) calcium, silicon, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins A and K2, omegas, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates.

Adding bone broth in place of conventional stock is a simple way to add vital nutrients and can help improve digestion, build your immune system, improve sleep, assist with joint repair and boost skin, hair and nail health.

The big difference between broth and stock is that broth is cooked a lot longer than stock, so it has a higher content of nutrients that are released over time.

What to look for when buying bone broth

  • Certified organic ingredients so guarantees ingredients have not been exposed to harmful chemicals or toxins in the soil or water
  • Product of Australia – organic bones sourced from Australia’s leading organic farmers

Make a simple bone broth at home by adding 3-4 teaspoon Cherry Tree Bone Broth powder to 200ml boiling water, or for a meal that the whole family will benefit from, try our Hearty Immune Boosting Casserole.
