I would like to know if anyone drinks bone broth and if so, how have you seen the benefits in your health?  Thanks in advance.

High lead concentrations are usually in bones....

even organic, grass fed animals. 

Not the 'miracle' food low carb folks want you to believe.

@sidsmom I didn't know about the lead...thought organic homemade would be a great nutritional snack.

Re: Bone broth, ANYONE???

A couple of years back we had a thread going in kitchen or recipes and I think  @VaBelle35 had a recipe and she had made it.  Maybe if she sees this she will respond.  I think she saw benefits of it but this was a while back and my memory.........

@dex

Bioaccumulatation.

The bones are from the cow

who ate the grain

which came from the grass

which was grown in the dirt

which had the water

etc etc etc.

 

Toxic material with any one of those stops would be bad, 

but begin to bioaccumulate them in the skeleton of the animal...

and you have a very concentrated toxic brew.

Think of it as 'one bad apple ruins the whole bunch.'

So if bone broth is really not good to consume, what would be a good alternative? @sidsmom

Think back ... people unable to summon a doctor. Or, accidents and illness before any modern medical treatment was developed.

Beef bone broth was prepared for people so ill and weak they could barely eat or keep food down. Each spoonfull is packed with fatty calories, and a few spoonfulls at a time, several times an hour, might be enough to keep someone alive while the worst of an illness ran its course.

Nowadays most people have phones, transportation, and/or neighbors and are able to get to a hospital, and aren't often nursed through infections, high fevers, etc at home with bone broth.

I see Bone Broth has resurfaced as another 'natural' high priced food fad, and of course, somebody has put a book out touting the benefits.

@SilleeMee

Depends on the reasons why people want to drink it.

Animal products are acidic, no fiber, saturated fat...

but the Paleo/Low Carb Community paint it as a magical elixir.

So much more than that.  

Books, blogs, vlogs, all forms of social media..

Even powders & pre-made stocks.  

I shudder to think what animal they used to process that stuff.

Oooof.

@sidsmom, in an effort to guard against being verbose I decided anyone wanting to Google 'bone broth book' would find the rest of it.
