This is a very old and simple (yet such an effective and tasty) healing recipe for the gastrointestinal tract (which includes the stomach and the intestines). The bones, marrow skin and tendons contain Collagen and Amino Acids (Proline & Glycine). Therefore it is an incredibly important addition to any treatment regime for disorders such as Leaky Gut Syndrome, Gastric Ulcers, Reflux, Heartburn and any other conditions associated with GUT inflammation. A side note to this wonderful healing recipe is that as Collagen supports your Connective Tissue it can help to create youthful, glowing, supple-looking skin.
Any type of marrow bones can be purchased but ensure that they are organic or at least grass-fed, free range. It doesn’t matter whether they are beef or chicken. This recipe is done with a whole chicken and can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days or frozen to be pulled out and defrosted when needed.
Bone broth can be consumed as it is (one glass or more daily – preferable gently warmed before drinking!), used as a base for soups, casseroles or any recipes that requires chicken or beef stock. A great idea if you are going to freeze for this reason is to pour the stock into ice cube trays before freezing so that you can pop out the cubes when needed!
Another handy tip is that bone broths are really easy to cook in a Slow Cooker. Just put all the ingredients in and let cook throughout the day while you go about your daily business.
