Why it works: Bone broth contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, which is well documented to help keep cartilage healthy and reduce joint pain. Bone broth also provides hyaluronic acid, which is commonly given as an oral supplement for osteoarthritis sufferers and injected into arthritic knee joints to reduce pain and increase function.
How it works: Get a variety of bone types to ensure that marrow, cartilage, and gelatin are all included in your broth. Place fresh, frozen, or roasted bones into a large stock pot or crock pot and cover with cold filtered water with two tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. The acid helps draw out important nutrients from the bones. Make sure all the bones are covered, but still leave plenty of room for water to boil. Add coarsely chopped onion, carrots, and celery stalks to the pot. Heat slowly, gradually bringing to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Skim off any scum that floats to the top. Use low heat to continue cooking the bones very slowly. For chicken bones, cook for at least 6 to 24 hours. For beef bones, cook for 12 to 48 hours. A long and slow cooking time is necessary in order to fully extract the nutrients in and around the bones.
