We did make a lamb broth at my mom's house, and then I also bought some bone broth powders and both have helped me immensely (although we forgot the rest of the lamb broth when I moved back home after being sick for so long.). There are other SparkPeople Teams that deal more specifically about the benefits of bone broth, particularly in the gut healing type teams, as well as the various Keto and Low Carb diet protocol teams, where the bone broth helps keep your electrolytes up as well as give you a way to manage hunger between meals.

Wonder about trying this just to help me eat better after chemo? Everything tastes so bad after all these meds. I have some lamb bones in the freezer - maybe I should try making a bone broth?

I'm was thinking about Doug's comments and decided to do some research as well. I'm always suspicious of the latest "Superfoods" and don't usually follow the pack without comparative research. This article seems to make sense and shows a lack of scientific evidence to support all the hype. Beneficial yes but not a Superfood.

mmm, surprised the bones pulverize! I've been doing in large stock post & straining out remainders/bones... will be interested to try this. I do like to pre-spice/add spices to taste in my broths... homemade is sooo much tastier!

Bone Broth is all the rage right now especially if you are on a paleo or keto diet. Here is the benefits and a basic chicken bone broth recipe I got from a friend who does the keto plan.
1. It Improves Digestion

Many people face a daunting problem when it comes to eating: poor digestion of food. Many different factors can cause this, and the consequences are far-ranging. This condition also goes by the name leaky gut, and it refers to the damaged mucosal lining of the digestive tract. If this part of the stomach becomes damaged or compromised, it may affect the stomachís ability to correctly absorb nutrients and minerals, resulting in fatigue, a weak immune system, as well as constipation. The gelatinous elements of bone broth can naturally help to repair the lining of the stomach.


2. It Enforces The Immune System

If you suffer from a weakened immune system, bone broth should be a top priority to get you natural defenses back in line. Some people consider bone broth to be a superfood due to its abundance of minerals that support and develop the immune system. Bone marrow is one of the richest parts of the bone regarding nutrients and vitamins, and when drank as a broth, it delivers a strong dose of much-needed substances for the body. Make your bone broth at home to ensure quality, and drink in moderation, adding as little salt as possible.
3. It Helps Bones Grow

Everyone knows calcium is good for the bones: after all, we have all grown up listening to our parents reminding us of the importance of a good glass of milk. Bones need calcium to stay strong, to grow, and to repair damaged parts. If youíre not getting enough calcium, you may have weaker bones that can become prone to injury. Aside from milk and other lactose-containing products, you can also use bone broth as an excellent source of calcium. Also, bone broth is rich in magnesium as well as phosphorus, which are both auspicious elements that help bones stay strong and healthy.

4. It Increases Energy Levels

You need at least 7 hours of sleep per day to function optimally, with some claiming that 8 hours is the recommended amount of sleep. If youíre getting less than that, you may experience fatigue, weakness, and low levels of energy throughout the day. While there are many things you can do to increase energy levels, few are as effective as bone broth. Known for its high amount of glycine, bone broth may significantly increase sleep quality as well as energy, ensuring that you can go throughout your day without feeling fatigued and overwhelmed

5. It Provides Amino Acids

Bone broth is an outstanding source of different amino acids that are a fundamental part of our diet but are often difficult to obtain from other sources. These amino acids include proline, for example, which is instrumental in the production of collagen. Proline can help skin to become more elastic and smooth, thereby reducing the appearance of aged or wrinkly skin. It is also said that it benefits heart health, ensuring that the tissue stays flexible. Itís important to combine bone broth with other food sources to complement a healthy diet. Bone broth can never substitute a rich and balanced diet.

6. It Protects Kidney Function

The kidney is one of the bodyís most valuable organs due to the function it performs. It filters out substances from our body, which eventually becomes urine. It keeps the body clean and balanced. If kidney function becomes poor, your health may suffer, and it may even prove fatal. Luckily, bone broth contains important elements that ensure proper kidney function, allowing for the kidneys to better filter substances from the body. Arginine can be abundantly found in bone broth, and it keeps arteries flexible. Bone broth can be an important part of a diet that is suitable for your kidney.

7. It Makes Your Skin Glow

Step into any cosmetic store and you will be welcomed by a plethora of products aimed at making your skin shine, glow, and appear young and brilliant. To avoid all the fuss related to purchasing expensive cosmetics, you can easily drink bone broth and experience the same skin-enhancing effects right from your home. This is possible due to bone brothís rich collagen content. Collagen is an element that helps the hair, skin, and nails to appear shiny and healthy. By consuming bone broth on a frequent basis, you can help your appearance to become more attractive in an all-natural way.

8. It Delivers Nutrients

Say goodbye to the days of consuming a variety of pills to help get all the nutrients you need. With bone broth, you can naturally obtain a wide range of nutrients and minerals that can be difficult to get from other foods. Homemade bone broth contains the highest amounts of nutrients, and it should ideally be slow cookies to better preserve the nutrients. High heat can destroy or degrade them. While bone broth canít replace all nutrients, it can act as a compliment. Consult your doctor to see if bone broth is good for you

9. It Fights The Flu

Like millions of other Americans out there, you have probably had to deal with the flu at some point during your life. The flu is a highly contagious viral condition that can cause symptoms to appear in the respiratory system; it may be fatal. There are a variety of treatments out there for fighting the flu, but bone broth is often overlooked by many. The comforting effect of the broth can help with symptoms, and it can also boost the immune system by providing much-needed nutrients and minerals. Donít rely on bone broth entirely, and contact your doctor if symptoms persist.

10. It Protects Joints

Another often overlooked benefit on bone broth is its natural ability to protect joints, as well as reduce risk of injury. Bone broth can boost joint health because it contains a natural substance known as glucosamine. This substance helps to keep joints free from pain, and it can also help reduce inflammation as well as irritation. Moreover, bone broth contains chondroitin sulfate, which may even reduce your risk of developing osteoarthritis. To get the most out of bone broth, make it by slowly cooking the bones, ensuring that all the vitamins and minerals slowly seep out.

I got this recipe from a friend doing keto.

Chicken bone broth
1 Whole chicken around 5 lbs or one that fits into your pot
Roasted in an oven at 350 for about 90 min or until there are clear juices.
Cut up the meat and use for a meal, salads ect.

Take the bone carcass and place in pot. add onions, celery, carrots and any other root vegetable like turnips/parsnips you would like
cover the carcass with water to just cover.
place on manual for 240 minutes. Yes four hours. let it release on own when done do not vent. when done the bones will be pulverized and you can use a blender or immersion blender to process smooth.
pPace in 1 cup containers and chill or freeze.
