Bone Broth

Bone Broth

Nothing is better for your gut, than a cup of warm, rich broth - made from simmering bones for a long time. The cooking process extracts all of the minerals and other amino acids for easy absorption in your gut.

Bone broth is good for:

- Gut healing

- Nourshment when unwell

- Joint care

- Post surgery or injury for healing

  • 1-2 Carrots, roughly chopped
  • 2 Celery Sprigs
