I am NO Scientist, however I have researched the many benefits and here a few of the claims:

  • Protects against aging and wrinkles: Bone broth promotes collagen production and contains collagen! Say goodbye to wrinkles and hello to youthful glowing skin AND nails.
  • Why collagen? AFter 40 we produce far less collagen naturally, sipping bone broth is one way to replace collagen naturally
  • Hydration: Since bone broth is made of mostly water, this is just another way to stay hydrated and keep our skin elastic and plump
  • Antioxidants: the minerals contained in bone broth protect the body from free radicals and toxins which in turn leads to improved health and anti-aging effects
  • Weight Loss: Decreases the feeling of hunger, low in calories, and PACKED with nutrients
  • Health benefits: The health benefit claims are endless including: supporting digestion, cardiovascular health, bone health, tissue repair, immune system, mood, and much more!

  • 1 tbsp of kosher salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425
  • add the tomato paste and olive oil to a bowl containing the beef bones (rub the mixture into the beef bones)
  • put the bones onto a baking sheet & pop into the oven at 425 for 15 minutes
  • remove from the oven & flip over the bones then add the celery, onions, and carrots to the baking sheet
  • put the baking sheet back into the oven for another 20 minutes at 425
  • remove everything from the baking sheet using tongs and add into a large sauce pot or dutch oven
  • cover the contents of the pot with water
  • add the garlic cloves, peppercorns, garlic powder, apple cider vinegar, add salt to the pot
  • bring to a boil (boil for 5 minutes)
  • lower the heat to a VERY low simmer (cover the pot with a lid, but leave it left slightly ajar)
  • simmer all day for at least 8 hours…for best results simmer 24 hours
  • add water as needed to just cover the bones and veggies throughout the cooking process
  • skim the foam that results on top of the soup with the back of a cold spoon
  • use kitchen towels or oven mitts and strain the contents of the pot into a colander over another pot (strain or remove all of the solids from the liquid)
  • once done let the pot stay on the stove for about an hour afterwards skim the fat that results on top of the soup with a slotted spoon OR place in the refrigerator covered and then skim the fat off after an hour or so
