As a Your Health Tuber and nutritionist, I always support natural drinks and food instead of popular chemicals usually presented on TV. So, when I first heard about the popularity of bone broth among people I couldn’t be more excited about that news. When I was little my grandparents used to drink bone broth because of gut issues. They used to cram some bones into a crockpot with herbs and vegetables, add water to the top, and then boil on low heat for one to three days. So, I’ve decided to prepare myself a nice nutritious and cheap drink of bones. I was cooking the mixture for 48 hours. Surprisingly, my kitchen was smelling wonderful! I really liked the smell and the taste.
But enough about my experience here is why to try drinking this magical elixir.

Many holistic nutritionists recommend this drink as an effective natural cure for leaky gut syndrome and other gut issues. Bone broth consists gelatin that aids seal up holes in the intestines. It helps cure constipation, chronic diarrhea, and food intolerances.

The magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus in the bones seeps out into the broth providing you vital building blocks for strong and healthy bones. Therefore, this drink is also recommendable for elders and people who suffer from a bone fracture.

People used glucosamine supplements to cure joint pain with years, and bone broth has glucosamine as well.
