All of the above items are stocked with broth. And bone broths from lamb, chicken, fish, and beef are great staples of every diet throughout the world. They’re pulsing with nutrients; they’re easy on your digestion system; they’re essential to boost your immune system.

In fact: it’s been shown that the paleo diet recipe’s bone broth has the following awesome benefits:

1. Repair Intestinal Wall and Halt Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Leaky gut syndrome occurs when the food you eat—things like sugar, grains, and gluten—actually irritate your intestinal cell walls and pave tiny holes into your bloodstream. Through this process, you have actual food particles bumbling through your body, which can formulate irritation at the brain cell level. NOT GOOD!

2. Rev Your Immune System.

Bone broth is rich with gelatin and collagen. Collagen formulates this immune-revving benefit. It actually works to decrease allergy symptoms, boost the growth of healthy probiotics in the gut, and provide overall healing throughout your bodily cells.

3. Reduce Inflammation.

Paleo diet bone broth is stocked with minerals like magnesium, silicon, calcium, and sulphur, which all fuel chondroitin sulphates into your body. This component actually reduces your cellular inflammation and can work to decrease your headaches, your overall inflammatory diseases, and your arthritis or joint pain.

Paleo Diet Recipe: Bone Broth

When making bone broth, it’s essential to look to animal body parts that are usually found outside of your usual grocery store meat department. Therefore, you should look to chicken necks or chicken feet.

Furthermore, you’ll need to look to paleo-recommended pasture fed products without hormones.

Ingredients:

4-5 bones of either chicken, beef, lamb, or fish

2 ½ tbsp. apple cider vinegar

7 cups cold water

2 carrots

3 garlic cloves

½ stalk celery

Directions:

Begin by placing the bones of your chosen meat in a large stock pot. Cover the bones with water. Add the carrots, the garlic cloves, and the celery stalk.

Next, pour the apple cider vinegar into the water.

Completely fill the large pot with water.

Heat the water and allow it to boil. Next, reduce the heat to low to allow it to simmer for seven hours.

Remember that chicken bones cook in about twenty-five hours; beef bones cook in about fifty hours.

Afterwards, remove all the bones and the vegetables from the broth. A fat layer will have formulated over the broth. Keep the fat layer there until you consume the broth.

Enjoy with your favorite soup ingredients!
