Fresh homemade broth or stock is a magical healing food, and regarded as an important staple in the Weston A. Price Foundation diet.
It has no similarity to the chicken broth you buy at the grocery store (even if you buy organic), so don't be fooled!
True bone broth is made by boiling bones and pieces of meat in purified water for 36 hours (for beef bones) or 24 hours (for chicken bones). The liquid is then strained and cooled.
The resulting broth is a nutritious gelatinous food that aids in digestion of proteins.
The bone broth made by Miller's Organic Farm contains natural gelatin which is a rich source of collagen (for your skin), glycine (an amino acid which aid digestion and improve protein assimilation), natural antibiotics, peptides, anti-infammatory substances, and important minerals for bones and teeth, but in a unique form that is easy for the body to absorb (unlike supplements).
These minerals include calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals.
Beef bone broth is particularly rich in material from cartilage and tendons like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine for joint pain relief.

"Peasant societies still make broth. It is a necessity in cultures that do not use milk because only stock made from bones and dairy products provides calcium in a form that the body can easily assimilate. It is also a necessity when meat is a luxury item, because gelatin in properly made broth helps the body use protein in an efficient way."
