Bone Marrow Broth Phenomena

Bone Marrow Broth Phenomena

My grandma told me that our family has been drinking bone broth soup for generations and that it’s good for your joints, skin and strength. I had no idea she was right; I was more interested in the amazing taste of the bone broth soup she made, rather than the benefits. Interestingly though people always say that we are a family with beautiful skin.

After leaving home I stopped having bone broth soup, within three years I noticed that my skin got dull and the pores on my face got larger and sometimes when I go for long runs my knee joints would slightly hurt. I could not figure out what the problem was. I treated my skin with expensive lotions and creams but it never looked the same as before.

My life changed when I went to visit my grandparent for a few weeks; as soon as she saw me she said, “You need to drink bone broth soup.” She made sure I had a cup of bone both soup every morning for two weeks. It was delicious! The amazing thing was that after seven days I noticed my skin was looking brighter and my knees did not hurt as much after a long run! The pores on my face got smaller and my face glowed. Since then I never missed a week without having bone broth soup. Friends ask me what am I using on my skin to make it look radiant, I smile and tell them “Bone broth soup”

One day I called my grandmother and told her thanks for my beautiful skin. She laughed and said, you are still having your bone broth right! She went on to tell me that these days when she goes to the butcher to get bone marrow there isn’t as much available because everyone are buying bones!

Here is my grandmother’s recipe:

Ingredients:

  • A super large stock pot.
  • 4 Pounds of beef marrow bones
  • 4 Pounds of fresh chicken feet
  • 4 Pounds of oxtail (Cow’s tail)
  • 2 Pounds of cow’s feet bones
  • A Bunch of thyme, chopped
  • 2 Bunches of green onions, chopped
  • 3 Large onions peeled and chopped
  • One large scotch bonnet pepper, remove seeds and chopped
  • Salt

Instructions:
Wash bones (Beef marrow bones, chicken feet, oxtails, cow’s feet bones), place in a large stock pot and cover cold water, place on stove top and bring to a boil, then immediately set temperature to the lowest heat to simmer for fifteen to eighteen hours. Add chopped thyme, green onion, onions, and scotch bonnet pepper (if you don’t like things hot eliminate the pepper). Stir and simmer for another 2 hours. Turn off heat allow to totally cool, remove bones, strain broth and pore in large glass jars and store in fridge. Have a cup every day and add salt to taste. Enjoy!

I also wanted to share the below video where natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola interviews Dr. Kaayla Daniel on her book, "Nourishing Broth," and they discuss the health benefits of bone broth.

      Hi Mekenzie - Thanks for your comment - Based on my research chicken feet has nutrients found in healthy cartilage, it also has calcium and collagen which are great for arthritis and joint pain. The good news is that during the cooking process it will practically dissolved in the broth. Once cooked and cool-down, remove all bones and strain the broth and you will not notice it. If you are still not convinced, just eliminate the chicken feet. Hope this helps.

      I've read a lot about bone broth and have even tried another recipe which was not the best. Your recipe calls for chicken feet and oxtail .. I don't know if I could bring myself to even buy them. Convince me that I must .. can you do that? lol Great article and I'll try to work up the nerve to try this. Thanks
