We get it. It doesn't sound appetizing. Yet, so many have rallied behind its positive effects. Shailene Woodley shared with David Letterman that she drinks a bone broth mixture every morning. Kobe Bryant, Mindy Kaling, Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek are also fans, bringing us to ask, "Why?"
Nutritionist Dr. Philip Goglia, who helps to manage the diets of Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Cara Delevingne, explained why this mixture has become so popular.
"There are dozens of different nutrients found within bone broth, many of which can't be obtained easily from other commonly eaten foods. By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help promote healthy gut integrity while reducing permeability and inflammation," he told us.
But, before you head out the door for your bone broth, there's one thing to keep in mind. "Since the process extracts everything, it's important to consider the quality of the bones and the health of the animal that provided it," said Rhys Cazenove, the Founder and CEO of a broth company in Los Angeles. "At Brothee, we only use organic, grass-fed and grass-finished beef bones and organic, pasture-raised chicken bones."
