Good Bones Stock (500ml)
What makes GOOD BONES™ so good?
Undivided Food Co. are passionate about JERF (Just Eating Real Food) and using food as medicine. Bone broth has been consumed for centuries for its medicinal benefits and apart from it being seriously tasty, it’s one of the most nourishing and healing foods you can eat. Here's why.
What is bone broth and why has it been revered for millennia?
Bone broth is made when bones and vegetables are simmered low and super slow for hours on end. This process draws nutrients out of the bones without letting the heat destroy them. The final product is a thick and flavourful broth packed with vitamins, minerals, and the star player: gelatin.
What is Gelatin?
Gelatin is a protein formed when collagen is broken down. Collagen is the stuff that makes up the connective tissue in our bodies (bones, cartilage, skin, hair, nails and lots more), holding us all together and keeping us strong and intact. Derived from the Greek word Kolla meaning glue, collagen is the body’s natural adhesive. Gelatin is what gives broth its jiggly jelly-like texture. If there’s no wiggle when you jiggle, then it doesn’t have much of the good stuff.
Why is Gelatin and bone broth so good for you?
Without collagen our bones would break, our skin would sag, our nails would be soft and brittle and our organs would weaken and lose their structure. As we age, collagen production slows and consequently so does the body’s ability to repair itself. Modern day life and exposure to toxins speeds up this wear and tear process.
Collagen is comprised mostly of amino acids particularly, glycine, proline, arginine and glutamine as well as a range of other minerals such as calcium, magnesium and chondroitin. Bone broth isn’t just food for the soul, it’s food for great health.
A daily dose of bone broth is an easy way to replenish the body with these nutrients, thereby supporting collagen production and the body’s natural healing process. All the while in a delicious, natural and easily digestible and absorbable form.
