Hot Detox Bone Broth Recipe (the back bone of my Hot Detox Plan)

 

Here are 5 reasons why you will want to include bone broth in your life…

1. Bone broth helps rebuild your gut lining.

Bone broth is full of gelatin and collagen, which soothes the intestinal tract and helps heal leaky gut (intestinal permeability). The use of antibiotics, Aspirin and other NSAIDS, refined sugar and flour, caffeine, alcohol and fried food can damage our intestines. By utilizing the mineral matrix and special proteins found in bone broth, you can help reverse dietary damage and repair the gut lining.

2. Bone broth helps reduce inflammation.

Ancient healing wisdom advises people to “eat what ails you”. For example, the broth made from bones and joints contains several nutrients that help strengthen your own skeletal system. Glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen and gelatin support the repair of your joints and bones, and may reduce inflammation throughout the whole body. The minerals in bone broths include calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and selenium. Minerals are critical for many bodily functions and impact everything from our bones to our mood and our joint health.

3. Bone broth helps nourish your immune system.

Chicken Soup is a popular remedy for colds and flus that really works! Cysteine, an amino acid found in chicken, helps to thin mucus so it can be expelled more easily. When fighting a cold, make a chicken broth with added spices to keep the mucus moving.

4. Bone broth helps maintain healthy skin.

Your skin contains a matrix of collagen that begins to break down around the age of 21, and our wrinkles are caused by fewer collagen strands within our skin. A rich source of the skin-supporting amino acids glycine and proline, along with collagen, the ultimate skin food, bone broth can improve skin elasticity and fight wrinkles.

5. Bone broth helps heal your brain.

There is mounting evidence to show that reducing inflammation of the brain can diminish the symptoms of ADHD, Depression, Autism and Dementia. Many people report that their moods improve, they feel calmer and more able to cope with daily stress and can even remember more detail by enjoying a diet rich in bone broth.

 

Tips to successfully make Bone Broth...

  • Buy organic or grass-fed beef bones from your local health food store, butcher or farmer's market. Ask them to cut them up to increase surface area.
  • Brown the bones well on both sides before putting them into the pot. This step is the most important because the caramelization of the bones adds a delicious flavour.
  • Save your bones over the week and make a big soup on weekend by freezing them in an unbreakable container. Make sure to label it so you can track the freezing date.
  • Do not skip the vinegar step, it draws the minerals out of the bones and adds a nice flavour to the soup. If you are sensitive to apple cider vinegar, you can use lemon juice instead.
  • Rather than composting the ends of your vegetables, keep and freeze your carrot, garlic, onion and celery trimmings and use it in your broth.
  • You must be careful with slow cooking in your house for 24 hours. Make sure your stove is safe to simmer and that you have enough fluid in the pot before you go to bed to prevent burning the pot or starting a house fire. Due to this real concern buy the largest capacity crock-pot (slow cooker) you can find. It gives you piece of mind while you are sleeping.
