Bone broths have a long tradition of being known to promote healing in several ways, including fighting off infections from viruses that cause the flu and colds. Bone broths also promote healthy digestion, reduce joint pain and inflammation, and they provide essential nutrition to promote healthy bones, hair, and nails.

Bone broth is excellent for “healing and sealing” your gut, to use Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride term. Dr. Campbell’s GAPS Nutritional Protocol, described in her book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), centers around the concept of “healing and sealing” your gut through your diet.
Broth or “stock” plays an important role as it’s easily digestible, helps heal the lining of your gut, and contains valuable nutrients. Abnormalities in your immune system are a common outcome of GAPS, and such immune abnormalities can then allow for the development of virtually any degenerative disease.
