Regular doses (at least 8 ounces a day) can heal leaky gut syndrome, detoxify your liver, support your immune system, boost your metabolism, improve your joint health, aid weight loss, reduce cellulite, and transform your derma into gorgeous, glowing skin. What’s not to love?

Aside from all of its amazing health benefits, one of the best things about bone broth is that it’s extremely versatile. If you don’t feel like tossing back a mug today, tomorrow, or the next day, you don’t have to because there are at least 25 other creative, tasty ways to consume it.
