Some of you may have cringed at the thought of drinking Bone Broth, don’t worry, I did too. But after getting roped into trying it by the charismatic Tom Sullivan, I have no regrets!
I’ve always had trouble getting sufficient protein before and after my workout. I have a very sensitive stomach that has led me to a mostly vegan diet, and an avoidance to protein bars and smoothies due to their adverse effects. There’s simply too many heavy ingredients in classic protein go-to’s that can cause indigestion or make me feel heavy, sluggish, and unenthused for my workout.
While I get my daily recommended protein from my regular diet, it can feel like a chore to find ones that agree with my stomach. So when Tom told me about how drinking Bone Broth could be an excellent source of light protein, I was thrilled!
Each box of Bone Broth has 36 grams of protein. Best of all these broths have NO ADDED SODIUM! You can drink a box throughout the day for a light, steady flow of nutrients.
To be honest, I had to power through my first few gulps, and was so repulsed I didn’t finish the carton, BUT, I ended up adding healthy spices and onions, heating it up, and pouring it back into the container for a second go after learning about all the other benefits Bone Broth offers.
Skin: Bone Broth (home-made or store-bought) is a great source of Collagen! Who doesn’t want more radiant nails, skin and hair?
Stomach: Bone Broth has also been credited to aiding Leaky Gut Syndrome, and many other stomach ailments such as chronic constipation, food intolerance, and diarrhea as the gelatin helps repair holes in the intestine.
Bones: Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate in the broth help prevent osteoarthritis and joint paint, along with a slew of other nutrients to keep them strong.
Energy And Sleep: The Glycine in the broth can improve memory and the quality of your sleep, as well as giving you an overall energized feeling.

You can make your own Bone Broth at home, (combining bones, veggies, herbs, and boiling them in a Slow-Cooker for 24-72 hours) or buy store-bought. Be wary of store-bought brands as all are not equal, and often have very high levels of sodium which isn’t great for regular consumption. Try to buy NO SODIUM ADDED, Organic Bone Broth, such as the one from the brand PACIFIC, to ensure you’re getting the most from your broth.
