Have you seen benefits you can ascribe (with reasonable certainty) from bone broth?

If so, what kind of broth and how often much were you consuming?

Right, Dan. I know the theory. I've read the GAPS book and lots of WAPF, but the proof is in the pudding.

...and he's asking what those reasons are. From your personal experience.

Bone broth is the corner stone of the GAPS diet and it comes highly recommended by the WAPF among many other health "experts" for a reason.

I started drinking bone broth several months ago. I drop a pound or two of bones into a crockpot full of water with some herbs, and the resulting broth lasts me a week or two. I was drinking a cup or two a day, 2-4 days a week, frequently served over a cup of fresh parsley with a bit of seaweed for iodine. And I also use it instead of water or wine for several recipes (rice, roast beef, etc). Switching from chicken to beef bones seemed to further improve the flavor and my health.

I can't prove it, but I think it was part of the reason that I'm now able to eat some of my "sensitivity" foods with far fewer ill effects. And now that I'm thinking of it, I've noticed my knees aching this week - I just realized I haven't had my broth for about a month now. It could all be coincidence, I suppose, but I'm going to make some broth right now.

bone broth has changed me life

okay, that may be a little dramatic...but I do swear by it for so many things

since your asking specifically about things that i know for sure have changed with bone broth the number one is it helps me to NOT GET SORE from slamming out a killer workout. This is very quanifiable because on days I don't take broth I'm sore.

another wonderful and quantifiable result of making bone broth is that my soups have all improved and taste better than ever (and my soups, by the way, have always been pretty darn good.)

less easy to attribute to just the broth and probably come from other diet/lifestyle choices as well but that i feel strongly that bone broth helps with are: getting sick less frequently recovering from sickness more quickly and overall better health
