Organic Chicken Bones with Meat

Bone broth has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to nourish our kidneys, supports our vital essence (chi), and build blood.

So, bone broth directly supports adrenal function and thus supports our immune health.  Bone stocks are also rich in minerals, including calcium and phosphorus – the two main minerals that compose our teeth.  When making our bone broths, we stew the bones for several hours, so that the broth itself becomes very rich in minerals.  Who wouldnʼt benefit from another bowl of bone broth?
