Ingredients

Cook Time: 12-24 hours for stove-top, 20 hours for slow cooker Bone broth not only tastes delicious but it is an amazing remedy for gut healing and digestive support. It contains gelatine, which promotes the healthy movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract. It also contains collagen, which is broken down into amino acids like glutamine. Glutamine plays a huge role in intestinal health and can help support the intestinal barrier, preventing toxins from leaking into the rest of the body. A “leaky gut” can certainly disrupt immune function, making bone broth an excellent immune-boosting food to consume.
