Bone Broth Cocktails – Just What the Doctor Ordered

You’re forgiven for thinking that bone broth sounds horrible, but trust us when we say it can transform your cocktails and your health. Here’s why…

Bone broths are extraordinarily rich in protein, and can be a source of minerals as well. Glycine supports the bodies detoxification process and is used in the synthesis of hemoglobin, bile salts and other naturally-occurring chemicals within the body. Glycine also supports digestion and the secretion of gastric acids. Proline, especially when paired with vitamin C, supports good skin health.

Bone broths are also rich in gelatin which may support skin health. Gelatin also support digestive health which is why bone broth is said to be good for those who experience issues with their digestion.

And, lastly, if you’ve ever wondering why chicken soup is good for a cold, there’s science behind that, too. Chicken broth inhibits neutrophil migration; that is, it helps mitigate the side effects of colds, flus and upper respiratory infections. 

If you’re still not convinced bone broth is incredibly simple to make (it’s just another version of a meat stock) and stores for days in the fridge. We like Hemsley and Hemsley’s recipe here.
