what macronutrients compose bone broth? Assuming you take the fat out..

I figure proteins make the gelatin

If they do are they even bioavailable?

In my observation EVERY traditional culture (EVERY ONE OF THEM) has bone broth with some minor variation. I believe bone marrow and calcium from the bone, as well as gelatinous carthledge have some very very important nutrients that cannot be obtained from any other food source.

I am not a scientist and do not know for sure, but I have a gut feeling based on observation and empirical evidence.

There's a lot of variance in composition of broths, ranging from the animal(s) from which the bones come, the specific bones or joints, veggies and herbs added, amount of water....

I guess my point is that you're going to have to be a lot more specific and even then there might not be a good answer :)
