What Exactly is Bone Broth?

What Exactly is Bone Broth?

It seems like every couple of years some health supplement or food becomes all the rage. It’s like you can’t even watch a show without hearing it referenced.

 

We’ve heard it about avocados, turmeric, coconut, and now …bone broth? 

 

All these things are great, and I would recommend them all, depending upon the individual. But so many people are asking, what exactly is bone broth?

 

It might not have the most pleasant name, but first off, that’s how it’s made. Broths are made from the juices of meats. Bone broth goes a little deeper into the marrow of the bone. But I think the most important thing is what bone broth can do for an individual. It’s packed with vitamins and nutrients as well as collagen being the most sought after.

 

How to make bone broth

Getting bones from a butcher is one way to get the main ingredient, but they must be broiled first before making the broth. Another easy way is saving the scraps from a previous meal. They freeze just fine.

 

Add bones along with carrots, celery, salt, garlic, Apple cider vinegar and water into a pot or slow cooker. Cook on low for several hours to achieve delicious broth.

 

The benefits are amazing. Packed with collagen, it’s a boost to your skin, hair and nails. The other benefits include boosting the immune system and overall function of the body.

 

Another way to get bone broth outside your kitchen 

Now, if you don’t have 8 hours to dedicate to making bone broth, lot’s of stores have premade bone broth in stock. Another way to get the benefits of the broth without the broth is a product called Naked Collagen that’s made with bovine bones. It’s a great supplement! This powder is packed with essential amino acids to boost not only immune function and restore collagen, but also ramp up brain power. Amino acids curb anxiety and depression, not only stopping misfires in the brain, but also correcting them! (Naked Nutrition has many supplements and proteins to choose from)

 

Adding two scoops of powder to your morning coffee or juice is all you need to get your daily dose. Some folks just mix it with water! It’s that easy. You’ll start to feel the results right away. To see results, well just give it a little bit of time since collagen takes time to build back up.

 

So is bone broth just hype or is it the real deal?

It’s definitely the real deal. Our ancestors have been doing it forever. And they didn’t have the processed food issues we have today. So talk to your doctor about giving your system a treat as well as restoring your youth inside and out by adding some bone broth or naked collagen into your life.

3 Ingredients Drink Can Help you Get Rid of Migraine in a Minute

 

If there is one thing I hate, that is a migraine. I just hate headaches. And I am sure I am not the only one.

There is just something extremely irritating in a migraine you cannot get rid of.

According to statistics, migraines affect almost 40 million Americans. So, chances are, if you do not suffer from constant migraines, one of your friends does.

To help you, and your friends, I will reveal a secret drink that I have found out to help me through the years.

If you want to help your friends, show them and point them to the drink. And always have it on your mind for the next time you suffer from an irritating and painful headache.

Causes for Migraine and Symptoms

If you are constantly suffering from a migraine, you probably already know the symptoms.

But for those who are not familiar with the symptoms, they include numbness, tingling, dizziness, tiredness, nausea and sometimes even vomiting.

Sensitivity to noise, smell and light is a common symptom and accompanies your migraine always.

Migraines can last up to 72 hours, and I am sure you wouldn’t like to suffer as much.

What you also need to know that migraines are often caused by stress and allergies.

However, the main factor contributing to migraines is dehydration and imbalance in your electrolyte levels.

Alcohol, stress, vitamin deficiencies can trigger a migraine, but the cause is always dehydration.

Drinking a lot of water can help you prevent migraines as you will keep your electrolyte at a high level.

One of the most important electrolytes is magnesium, so make sure to get more of that as well.

But if you do get a migraine, it doesn’t hurt to have a quick solution to the problem.

The Drink

Now all you need for this drink is a cup of water, juice from one fresh lemon, and just two teaspoons of sea salt.

The trick here is to use good quality salt, something like Himalayan sea salt for example.

With good salt, lemon juice, and water, you are getting more than 80 different minerals, magnesium included.

Good quality salt also helps you reduce pain and inflammation from a headache, as salt raises serotonin levels.

Mix all the ingredients together, and drink it bottoms up.

I know it is an old folk remedy, and you might be reluctant to use it.

But believe me when I say it, there are many natural and home remedies for almost every disease and illness, and many of them are as effective as traditional medicine or sometimes, even more effective.

And if you do not believe me, think about this for a second.

Do you know what happens when you go to emergency room for a migraine attack?

You get injected with electrolytes.

So why go to the emergency room for electrolytes, when you can make a quick remedy at home or at work?
