The Best Bone Broth You Can Buy
rē•spin the way you think about this nourishing drink.
This nourishing elixir has been around for centuries. It’s rich in flavor and health experts have long praised the many benefits of bone broth for your immune system. Some even go so far as referring to it as “liquid gold”. Since St. Patty’s Day is the Feast of Saint Patrick, we’re adding this liquid gold to a nourishing, green recipe.
Traditionally bone broth is made by boiling animal bones such as chicken, duck, beef, oxtail, or even fish, along with vegetables like carrots, onions, and celery for 8-10 hours. According to fertility expert and founder of The Yinova Center, Dr. Jill Blakeway, “Bone broth is a source of minerals that are often missing from modern diets. A rich bone broth contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and other trace minerals, all in a form that is easy to digest and assimilate. The long cooking time breaks down cartilage and tendons releasing the very same compounds that are found in expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain.”
It’s an immune-boosting beverage that can ward off colds and even help you recover from more serious illnesses. James Beard Award-Winning Chef and founder of Brodo, Marco Canora, says that bone broth completely transformed his health. “High quality, scratch-made bone broth restored my gut lining and utterly saved my life,” he recently told rē•spin. “Real, whole bone broth like Brodo contains nutrients that you just can’t find anywhere else. It contains natural healing properties to help improve digestion, strengthen joints and absorb protein. Bone broth packs natural collagen to improve hair, skin, and nails. Plus, glycine to improve brain health and sleep cycles.”
But, despite all the amazing health benefits it’s sometimes said that bone broth doesn’t taste good enough to sip on its own. If you haven’t jumped on the bone broth bandwagon, let us help you rē•spin the way you think about this popular drink. You can now enjoy the nourishing benefits of this medicinal broth as a powder added to your morning smoothie, or even add a bouillon cube to the dairy-free recipe below. And don’t worry, if sipping on a warm cup of bone broth is up your alley, we’ve rounded up the best tasting, high-quality brews you can buy.
BRODO: The Best Traditional Bone Broth
Brodo was founded by Chef Marco Canora in 2014. What began as a small take-out window for bone broth in NYC has turned into one of the most popular brands to buy frozen bone broth from online. According to Chef Canora, “Brodo takes bone broth back to its roots—with a simple combination of time and real ingredients like meaty grass-fed bones and organic whole cut vegetables. The result is a tastier, more nutritious broth akin to what your grandma used to make.” We recommend trying their Signature Hearth Bone Broth made from a blend of turkey, chicken, and beef.
EPIC Provisions: The Most Unique Bone Broth Flavor
Epic Provisions was created by founders Katie and Taylor who turned to bone broth after developing gastrointestinal issues from years of following a strictly vegetarian diet. They only use bones from grass-fed animals and have some of the most unique flavors of bone broth on the market. Their Turkey Cranberry Sage Bone Broth tastes like a delicious Thanksgiving dinner in a bottle.
