Bone broth is the uber-trendy drink that is taking the country by storm!
- Collagen. Structural protein to build strong skin, protect against aging and wrinkles. Dietary collagen mainlines directly to your cells. It also reduces inflammation and is beneficial for your digestive tract. A great way for those with inflammatory bowel conditions to ease symptoms.
- Glycine. Our bodies are bombarded with toxins each and every day that age us. Glycine helps our liver rid these toxins from our bodies, re-energising and de-aging our cells in the process.
- Minerals. Bone broth is a power-house of minerals and its chemical composition make them bio-available.

3-4 pounds organic, grass fed oxtail and/or beef thigh bone (may have meat attached)
Two inches of ginger root (cut into thick circles)
2 or 3 whole onions, thick sliced
3-5 scallions bulbs; save the chopped green stalks for garnish
1/4–1/2 cup of your favorite fresh herb (cilantro, parsley, thyme or rosemary)
1 Tbsp coconut or sesame oil
3-4 bay leaves
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar or coconut vinegar (this helps to draw the minerals out of the bones and into the broth)
Mined or Himalayan sea salt
Optional: Celery stalks (few stalks cut into smaller pieces), some garlic (great antibacterial properties).
Bring a large stockpot of water and bones to a rolling boil. It should be large enough to cover all the bones. Boil for about 10 minutes. This will clean the scum off the bones. Dump the water.
