Winter is coming.

As the cold sets in, it’s only natural to start dreaming up those summer plans again… hoping to steal back some of that sun warmth. Have no fear! There are other ways to warm your soul and body: hot apple cider, teas… but have you ever considered bone broth? It’s becoming a popular way to stay cozy… like wearing your favourite snuggy; Pair the two and you’re on a whole new level of comfortable. 

Here are the top reasons why you should stock up on broth this time of year:

Immune Support 
Bone broth can improve your immune system thanks to the plenty of minerals that seep into the broth from the bones. This will help you fight those pesky colds and flu.

Reduces Joint Pain and Inflammation 
Amino acids extracted from bone, such as glycine, proline, and arginine have anti-inflammatory properties. Many people will take glucosamine supplements to help with joint pain and keep cartilage healthy. However, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate can be found in bones and the natural forms are more effective than their supplement counterpart. 

Benefits to the Skin, Hair and Nails 
The bone broth is a rich source of collagen, which means it is very nice to your skin. A regular diet of this nutrient-rich fountain will have you looking younger and more radiant, with stronger and faster growing hair and nails. 

Helps with Bone Formation 
The phosphorus, magnesium and calcium found in animal bones provide you with the essential building blocks for healthy bones. The nutrients seep into the broth and you reap the benefits: super simple!
