Are you at all shocked that I’m back with another bone broth benefits post? 

My only goal today is to give you the lowdown on bone broth benefits.

Let’s just review how much I have shared with you over the years about bone broth so you remember what a legit broth’er I really am.

Here is just a sampling:

And then, I even created a free e-book for how you can make slow cooked chicken and then turn it into bone broth.

If you don’t have it yet, you can grab it HERE.

To this day, I still make bone broth (and vegetable broth), and believe in it more than ever. Why? It’s simple, and it works for healing. If it didn’t I would never have remained consistently passionate about it almost 10 years later.

Bone Broth Benefits #guthealth #bonebroth #guthealing #StayVital
  1. Rich in gelatin. And I believe in gelatin for gut healing
  2. Good source of protein. I try to get as much protein as possible, but if you’ve been following along lately, it has not been dominated by meat. 
  3. Versatile. You can do so many things with broths; from straight drinking it to making entire soup meals out of it, and even freezing it into cubes for flavor enhancers to other meals.
  4. Immune system boost. Because bone broth is packed with proteins (glycine and proline) that are well-known for nourishing the lining of your gut, it is thought to help give your immune system a boost.
  5. Nutrient dense. Bone broths contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others.
  6. Helps Leaky Gut Syndrome. You can read all about it in 31 Specific Things to Heal a Leaky Gut.
  7. Improve joints. Bone broth is a natural source of collagen, which is great for the joints.
  8. Maintain healthy skin. I’ve already talked about collagen and skin; because bone broth contains collagen, it’s great for the skin.

But mostly the reason most of you care about bone broth is because of its implications on the gut. 

Bone broth is great for gut healing. There are a ton of thoughts and research out there to prove this, but I like the simplicity of how Dr. Jill said it,

Bone broth (or stock) is fabulous for healing intestinal permeability. It contains collagen, which nourishes the intestinal lining and reduces inflammation. Plus, it’s easy for a damaged gut to digest and reap the benefits of its protein and minerals.

Can You Recommend a Packaged Bone Broth?

Bone Broth Benefits #guthealth #bonebroth #guthealing #StayVital Can you recommend a packaged bone broth

Due to the explosion of bone broth, I have gotten so many questions around, “If I don’t have time to make it myself, is there a packaged bone broth you can recommend?”

Honestly? I have only found a few I really like. And while I will never say that any of them can and should completely replace the art of homemade broth, I will remind you that I am a realist.

We are busy and constantly on-the-go. It’s not realistic to sit around making bone broth 24/7. Because of that, I will share some of my recommendations for packaged bone broths from time-to-time.

I’m starting with the Vital Proteins Bone Broth Collagen.

Kettle & Fire

The beef flavor is crafted with bones from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows and is simmered slowly to extract maximum nutrients.

Its benefits include:

  • Efficient: One simple ingredient eliminates preparing time-consuming bone broth at home. (Ingredient: Organic Beef Bone Broth Powder.)
  • Nutritious: Low sodium, MSG free, USDA organic, and rich in vitamins and minerals.
  • Beneficial: supports digestion, aids in immune function, and promotes overall health and wellness.

One scoop (or one packet) contains just 40 calories with 9g of protein and 9g of collagen.

The chicken flavor uses bones from free-range chickens and is simmered slowly to extract maximum nutrients.

Its benefits and nutritional profile are the exact same as the grass fed beef. 

Choosing one over the other will only depend on your personal taste preferences: beef or chicken flavor.

How to Use Kettle & Fire

Here are 5 ways to use the bone broth:

  1. Stir into hot water, tea, or other savory beverages. This is the simplest, most basic way to use the product. When you are really pressed for time, but want to get your bone broth in, do this. Works every single time.
  2. Roasted Cinnamon and Spice Vegetables
  3. Mix with stews, soups, or sauces. It’s so easy to mix in for an instant boost.
  4. Savory Bites
  5. Add into recipes for entrees. Like #3, add into any savory recipes whenever and however you desire.

Quite honestly, the way I add in Vital Proteins Collagen and Gelatin to anything and everything (usually with a sweeter flavor – smoothies, oatmeal, nice cream, etc.) is exactly what I do with the Bone Broth Collagen. The only difference is with the bone broth its savory vs. sweet. 

If you separate it out in your mind like that, you’ll have plenty of ideas for incorporating it.

And finally, as we enter the busy holiday season of traveling and going, the packets are perfect to always carry with you for an instant immune boost. I’ll be back in the new year with more on that because ain’t no one got time for sickness 🙂

Let me know in the comments below if you try this product and your thoughts.

  1. What about fish broth? I see a lot about cow and chicken broth, but I have been wondering if fish broth this is good for you as well. I live by the coast and could easily get free fish bones, but I also don’t want to put too much metals in me and I am unsure if fish bones would do that?

    1. Great question! I actually used to make fish broth. I did so solely because I enjoyed it and wanted as much broth variety as possible. I’m not sure about the health benefits or lack thereof, though, so I’d need to do more research. Xox
