Highly nutritious– animal bones and connective tissue contain an important protein called collagen, and one cup of bone broth can provide about 9 grams of high quality protein. Collagen is highly nutritious, and you can read more about its benefits here. In addition, bone broth can contain a variety of minerals like calcium, magnesium and phosphorus as well as B vitamins and other nutrients, depending on how it is made.
Supports gut health– bone broth contains the important amino acid glutamine, which is essential for nourishing the gut lining. Combined with collagen, glutamine in bone broth can help repair damaged intestinal linings that may be causing digestive problems or difficulty absorbing nutrients.
Good for joint health– bone broth also contains the proteins glucosamine and chondroitin which have been shown by many studies to support healthy tissue in joints, and reduce joint pain in athletes, those with osteoarthritis, and more.
* 1 package of soup or marrow bones

How to make bone broth:
In a pot or crock pot take the soup bones or marrow bones and put them in add water to cover bones by 1 inch and add vegetables and seasonings, then add a dash of white wine or vinegar. This helps to get the gelatin from the bones into the soup.
Simmer and cook for 12-24 hours. The longer you cook it the more collegian and nutrients it will have. Once done cooking it strain the liquid into mason jars or a container that you can freeze. Broth is only good in the fridge up to a week because it does not have preservatives in it so it will go bad if not used in a week. I freeze mine till I use it the day I cook or drink it.
