While bone broth may be an acquired taste, it’s gained much-deserved popularity in the kitchen and among nutrition pros over the years. Whether you make it at home or buy a high-quality batch from the grocery store, adding bone broth to your favorite recipes will give you a kick of vitamins and minerals that will keep your body functioning at its best.

Researchers have found that bone broth is a nutrition powerhouse — high in protein and vitamins like magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. The amino acids found in bone broth ease digestion, helping to reduce inflammation and heal the gut. It’s also a source of gelatin, which breaks down into collagen and can help repair joint damage and fight osteoarthritis. Hello, postworkout support!

You can use bone broth just like you would any other broth or stock — as a base for soups, to cook grains or to make casseroles. Or you can simply drink it like a cup of joe!
