The Benefits of Bone Broth + Recipe!

The amazing nutritional and healing properties of bone broth:

-Contains collagen protein for healthy hair, skin, nails, bones & joints
-Glutamine, glycine, proline and chondroitin help to strengthen and repair damaged joints- goodbye pain and stiffness!
-Glutamine in collagen helps to heal the intestinal lining and repair “leaky gut”
-Healing leaky gut helps to reduce intestinal and systemic inflammation- the root cause of many chronic health conditions
-Healing the gut helps to reduce food intolerances and allergies
-Glutamine is also a natural anti-anxiety amino acid which helps to calm the nervous system
-Glycine and glutamine in bone broth help to induce a deeper more relaxed sleep
-Hyaluronic acid and collagen in bone broth is anti-aging ( hello plumped skin!)
-Minerals in bone broth help to hydrate our cells, strengthen all of our tissue structures and regulate metabolic and nervous system functions.
-Glycine and minerals found in bone broth help to support phase II liver detoxification
-Delicious and comforting, broth has always been brewed for its immune boosting properties when colds and flus come on.


Enjoy bone broth on its own, or as a base for soups, stews and casseroles and for enhancing the flavour of sauces e.g. Bolognese


1kg of free range organic bony chicken/beef parts (ask your butcher for a bag of bones)
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon black pepper corns
2 bay leaves
2 handfuls of parsley stalks
Optional- 1 large onion, 1 garlic bulb


*option, for a richer flavour, roast/pan fry the bones first

  1. Place all ingredients into a large stockpot and add 5 litres of cold filtered water.
  2. Bring the pot to boil over med-high heat. Skim off any scum that forms on the surface
  3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 12-24 hours (the longer you cook it the more gelatinous it will be)
  4. Strain the broth through a fine sieve into glass storage containers. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
  5. The broth forms a fatty layer- remove and keep for cooking (lard)
  6. The broth (and lard) can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days or frozen for up to 3 months
