Chicken soup has gained a sort of mythic status in our society. If you feel a cold or flu coming on, you better eat a bowl of chicken soup! So, are the health benefits of chicken soup true, or an old wives tale? In this video, I’m going to be talking about how a bone broth fast can bring about remarkable health benefits and help heal the body!
When I first started to doing bone broth fasts a few years ago, it was because I was hit with bad eczema around my eyes. After a three day fast, where all I ate or drank was bone broth, it almost magically cleared up!
Bone broths are some of the most healthful foods you can put in your body. Not only are they delicious, they are also absolutely loaded with benefits that can help your gut, joints, skin, immune system, and bone health. The trick, of course, is to make your own bone broth. The store-bought soups just aren’t going to cut it here, you need the real thing. That means boiling the bones in a stock pot for at least 24 hours. It can take a little while, but the results are well worth it.
This powerful broth works to reset and heal the body.
When you fast from food and give your body a break from digesting food, your body is able to focus on the removal of toxins and healing.
Of course, when we think chicken bone broth, we instantly think about getting over a cold. But here is the big secret, it doesn’t need to be chicken. Beef bone broth will do the same thing, provided that it is made naturally and not sold in a box at the grocery store. All bone broths support your gut health, which also supports immune function, helping you get better when illness strikes.
Another major reasons to try a bone broth fast is because it will help support your musculoskeletal health. Minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium can be found in abundance in bone broth. Glycosaminoglycans (G.A.G.) and Glucosamine both help support joint function, with G.A.G. supporting overall joint health while Glucosamine will help support cartilage. The levels of of collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in bone broth helps support skin health, minimizing wrinkles and skin elasticity. All in all, bone broth is one of the most potent anti-aging “treatments” out there today.
