Today I wanted to share with you something that I recently discovered as a health aide with my fat loss at fifty dieting and that is bone broth.

I have begun to add some intermittent fasting to my plan and it was suggested that during the fast I sip on bone broth.

You can read about Intermittent fasting here.

I know that broth is nothing new, I mean Mom’s have been giving it to sick children for years. Chicken soup is know for healing and shortening a cold. But I discovered that bone broth has many health benefits that I never even thought of. To me, being over 50, it is almost like drinking from the fountain of youth. It makes me feel great!

Here are some of the bone broth health benefits that I have discovered:

Bone broth or should I say the bone marrow with is extracted from the bones is great to improving the immune system and helps with allergies.

Bone broth can help you look younger because it contains collagen and gelatin.  It’s great for your skin and hair. And if you are older and have lost a lot of collagen in your skin, bone broth will help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Bone broth is way cheaper than collagen creams or plastic surgery.

You can help heal leaky gut syndrome with bone broth. The collagen in bone broth will heal your gut lining and reduce intestinal inflammation. So it should also help with digestion as well.

Bone broth helps is great for bones, joints and teeth. Bone broth can help to reduce joint pain. I also noticed that when bend down, I no longer hear that cracking noise in my joints.

Bone broth is very easy to make and can save you a lot of money.

You don’t need to just use the bone broth for fasting or sipping on, it is also great base for soups.

But I find that I really enjoy sipping on a cup of broth in the mornings before I go to work. It seems to give me some extra energy.

Here’s how I made beef bone broth.

  1. Hi Wendy, thank you for such an interesting post!
    I didn’t know nothing about this kind of diet with bones broth! In my country we use to cook pork bones and we eat the meat around the bones, and I just love it! There is also a very well known restaurant with this specialty – pork bones – and it is excellent!
    But when I do it at home I never use the broth… but now that i think about that it should have an amazing flavor!
    Next time, I will not forget to use it next time!
    Thank you so much

    1. Absolutly use the broth. There is so much nutrients from the marrow. Think about it this way, when an animal eats a dead animal, what do they go after first? The bones. Animals instinctively know that the bones are amazing for you.

      Let me know how it goes. And thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hello Wendy,
    thank you very much for your article! I didn’t know that bone broth has that many benefits, but thanks for pointing that out! It is incredible how healthy the “old” recipes are.
    I will definitely give bone broth a try together with your recipe, looks very promising.
    Greetings
