Module #4 Video #2 Bone Broth - Why and How to Make it or find substitutes!
There was a time when Grandma had chicken bones cooking in a stew pot – bone broth – always ready for a
family member who needed sustenance. Bone broth contains chondroitin sulfate and a bit of glucosamine which
work together to strengthen every body’s structure. Bones, cartilage, joints, even the gut lining – all require such
structural support. You will find people saying these days that you have only so many miles in your joints. I only
believe that is true IF you do not provide your body with the nutrients required to repair the joint’s structure.
Another nutrient that is found in bone broth and necessary to the body is hyaluronic acid. Think of the joint.
The liquid that surrounds the joint is called the hyaline! Hyaluronic acid is also the moisture within the collagen –
how the skin stays moist. Another place in the body it is critical is for the moisture in the eye.
MAKING BONE BROTH
Bone Broth is very easy to make. Living in California, however, the summers are not the time I prefer to make
bone broth as I will often leave the crock pot on all week!
Place in a crock pot:
Organic Bones (see below for nutrient info on types)
Water to within an inch of the top
2Tbsp Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Cook on low. Begin to eat after 24-48 hours. I often leave chicken bones in for four days and chew
on the soft pieces with my broth!
Chicken bones contain Collagen II, Chondroitin Sulfate and hyaluronic acid;
Beef Bones Contain Collagen I and III
Honestly, this is my favorite way to get the nutrients
like chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid into my body
– BioCell Collagen. Paradise has a great brand that they
add MSM and a bit of Amla to their capsules. I take two
capsules, twice daily (and give our 13 year old, 35lb Corgi-
Shepherd 1 capsule opened up in his dish with added water
daily! This got him in two weeks from moving like an old
man to prancing like a puppy!)
