Bone Broth or not Bone Broth -- That is the Question

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 04, 2012 at 6:02 AM

I am new on Paleo. I made a crock pot rib bone stew and used organic beef broth. I am reading a lot about bone broth. Is this for cooking to replace store broth in a crock pot? Or are there other uses?

thanks jake. I usually make the white stock and I liked the creamy texture. I will try roasting the bones and see if I prefer the flavor.

roasting is for a brown stock, with the attending roasted flavor. Unroasted bones make a "white" stock.

Makes it smell better while cooking, for one. I can't comment on taste or nutrient content, though.

^ Yeah, but even without gut permeability some people have direct and obvious damage to their gut lining (like ulcers). Seems pretty silly people are drinking cabbage juice and taking PPIs for that, when they should be doing broth, no question.

It doesn't have mainstream acknowledgment because the mainstream doesn't acknowledge gut permeability. Gut bacteria is getting some press.

Some people drink it straight. But its much tastier in stews or soups.

Its because bone broth has really good minerals + gelatin + glutamine + glucosamine, which is a potent combo, especially for bone or gut healing. Its actually pretty miraculous stuff, if your having gut issues.

Having discovered it from paleo & gaps, I really wonder why it doesnt have more mainstream agknowledgement for gut healing. The combination of ingredients is so common sense - gelatin coats the digestive system, glutamin and glucosamine are direct ingredients for gut tissue healing.

In addition to healing the gut, your body will use the gelatin, glucosamine, and complementary substances from the marrow bones to rebuild cartilage. Within 3 days of drinking my first batch of broth, my knees felt 10 years younger.

My barber also noted an improvement in the strength and thickness of my hair after just 5 days of drinking the broth.

why do people roast the bones before using it to make bone broth?

You can heat it and drink it plain if you like, or use it in soup.
