This is not about being ultra thin with boney hips but about the wellness of your skin and bones.


Bone broth is full of minerals and collagen and has many health benefits. It also nourishes your joints, tendons, and mucus membranes.


Flat bones such as the ribs, vertebrae or sternum are preferred over long bones with yellow marrow.  The red marrow has blood stem cells which also support our immune function.  The membranes, tendons and cartilage that accompany the bones have collagen which makes your skin supple and smooth.


Tips on purchase and cooking


Whatever form you and your family consume in, it is the goodness of the broth that will help your bones, joints and skin. Give it a thought.
