Good resolutions at the start of the year generally include healthy eating and more exercise on our agenda. To keep your commitments, you choose to cleanse your body by consuming broth galore, and in particular the essential and virtuous Bone Broth, a poultry carcass broth that our grandmothers already used.
The Bone Broth recipe has been used since the dawn of time. Ultra simple to make, this broth has virtues recognized by all medicines, particularly Chinese medicine. When cooked, the hen or chicken carcass releases vitamins and minerals essential to our body. It is recommended to consume it in winter when temperatures drop because it will boost our immune system and keep us in shape all season long. A course of 5 to 10 days per month for 3 months proves effective.
A true natural remedy, “Bone Broth” acts both on our health and on our beauty. It is recommended to drink it for prevention but also as a cure after a flu infection, but also after childbirth to strengthen the body and prevent stretch marks.
Bone Broth is a concentrate of vitamins, amino acids and minerals contained in the bones and spinal cord of poultry: vitamins A and K2, omega 3 and 6, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium... All these elements help to fill deficiencies and combat fatigue.
Also, the collagen contained in the broth forms gelatin which facilitates digestion and strengthens the intestinal barrier.
It also preserves joints and helps fight rheumatism.
The collagen released during cooking strengthens the tissues of the epidermis and helps plump the skin and strengthen nails and hair.
