Bone broth is one of the most healing foods you can consume. Rich in nutrients like collagen, gelatin and glycine, chicken bone broth can help to protect and heal your gut lining, boost skin health and improve joint function.
The chicken bone broth from your local grocery store is not the same. First thing, you have no idea how that broth was made. One of the key factors to a health-boosting bone broth is the long cooking time, at least 24 hours, this is where it infuses with all of the beneficial nutrients. Another factor is many store-bought broths and stocks is their inclusion of some of the worst ingredients and chemicals around — like MSG.
