why you need to be drinking bone broth

When I started going to a holistic doctor, one of the first things she told me was to start drinking bone broth a couple times a day to heal my gut. I was a little skeptical at first but immediately ordered a pack of Pacific Foods Bone Broth and started doing it. Let's just say, it is DELICIOUS. Not gonna lie, I enjoy it. I just heat it up in a mug and then add some flavor and I'm good to go. 

I like to add a couple different things (add one or two of these) to it: turmeric, ginger, sea salt, lemon, crushed black pepper, or even a tablespoon of coconut oil! 

why bone broth is good for you

-promotes weight loss because of the L-glutamine which is essential for gut health

-has been known to give you a better sleep

-good for hydration- it adds electrolytes and can even hydrate better than water

-it is said to improve your mood and help with stress

-anti-aging benefits

-gives you healthy and strong nails 

-boosts your immunity because it is high in glutamine

-helps soothe a common cold

-fights inflammation- really good if you have stomach issues, are gluten-free, etc

-really good for your bones and teeth- it is high in calcium, protein, magnesium, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, and B vitamins

Seriously, this stuff is magical and all it takes is a cup or two a day. It is easiest if you buy the 12-packs from Pacific Foods and just store in your pantry.
