Bone Broth is a beverage that has been consumed for thousands of years throughout different cultures. This nutrient-dense broth is made from the bones of animals using water, bones, vegetables, and apple cider vinegar.

A true bone broth uses just bones, no meat, and is slow simmered over 24 hours to maximize nutrient content by producing gelatin from collagen-rich joints and by extracting minerals from the bones into the broth.

Our broth is frozen immediately after it’s made to preserve the integrity of the product. We never use preservatives, stabilizers or high-heat pasteurization.

There’s a reason grandmothers across the world simmered soup on their stoves for their loved ones with ailments. An old South American proverb says “good broth can resurrect the dead”. While that may be a bit of a stretch, bone broth does have incredible health properties. We’ve seen the healing properties of bone broth firsthand throughout our work with thousand’s of clients across the country.

With 85% of your immune system residing in your gut, it is the most logical place to start when healing the body. Bone Broth contains many amino acids, 2 notable ones being proline and glycine. Glycine supports detoxification in the body and helps the body assimilate collagen. Proline is essential to cell structures by strengthening their walls. This is beneficial for those looking to heal the gut from digestive disorders, those who seek skin & cardiovascular support as well as support for more superficial ailments – like cellulite and lack-luster skin. It’s also a great source of bio-available minerals like phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, silicon and sulfur.

We’ve gotten this question a lot recently: why can I find some bone broths on the shelf, but yours is in the freezer? The very simple, easy answer is that bone broth should not be shelf stable. Just like you wouldn’t find your animal proteins or animal products in the inside aisles of the store (chicken will never be next to the cereal, it’s a real food and is perishable), you shouldn’t be looking for your bone broth in that section either.

We don't believe in hot-filling our broth to increase it's shelf stability. This process can lead to the leaching of plastic components into the bone broth. Our broth is always cooled completely before being filled in our BPA + EA free bags.

Shelf stable containers are composed of three layers: polyethylene, aluminum and paperboard treated with polymers. To make their packaging sterile they spray or apply Hydrogen Peroxide and high heat to the packaging, and potentially irradiate it with Ultraviolet Light. The other issue of this packaging of food is that the food itself must be exposed to high heat, or ultra-pasteurization — a practice that some say interfere with important nutrients in foods. In order to make it shelf stable for many months, it is usually aseptically processed, which flash-heats the broth in its boxed carton up to 295° making it virtually sterile. Because of our concerns about heavy metal toxicity (aluminum) and PET being exposed to high-heat pasteurization or packaging, we choose not to make our broth shelf-stable.

We believe that animal products should be kept refrigerated. Just like you wouldn’t find chicken feet, or chicken breast or beef ribs on a shelf (unless they are overly processed, pickled or cured), you shouldn’t find bone broth on a shelf either. We add absolutely zero stabilizers, preservatives or flavorings to increase the shelf life of our product. We freeze it to maintain freshness without compromising our production or ingredients.

All of our beef bones are from organic, grassfed and grass-finished cattle. They are raised with minimal interference and are allowed to roam freely in green pastures. They are never supplemented with corn or soy feed.

One of the most beautiful things about bone broth is it’s versatile. Our favorite way to use it is just as it is, warmed up in a mug. Bone Broth makes a fantastic alternative to coffee or tea. Not only that but it’s protein content makes it an excellent choice for a snack between meals. We love using our bone broth as a base for our soups, stews and sauces. It also is a great nutrient-rich substitution for water in rice and pasta dishes. Try out one of our Bonafide recipes today!

Our broth is good for 1 year in the freezer (check the use-by date). Once defrosted, the broth is good for up to 7 days in the refrigerator.

The amount of broth you drink can depend on the reasons you are drinking it! If you are using it to maintain health and wellness, we recommend drinking 6-8 ounces per day. If you are using it to address more chronic, serious issues, we recommend using upwards of 24 ounces per day. Please always consult a natural health care practitioner in your area to determine which protocol works best for your bio-individuality.

It’s important that you seek out a certified or licensed nutritional therapist in your area to work with you. We recommend looking for a Certified GAPS Practitioner when dealing with more severe concerns.

FROM FROZEN – For best results, remove restorative bone broth from freezer and thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours. Once defrosted open and poor desired amount of broth into a small stockpot. Heat over medium heat until you reach a simmer, stirring occasionally.

QUICK THAW – Place your frozen restorative bone broth, still sealed in plastic bag, in a bowl or sink of hot water for 5 to 10 minutes or until it can be broken into pieces. Open the bag; invert contents into a small stockpot and follow above instructions.

We always recommend using a stovetop to gently heat your bone broth. We understand that convenience doesn’t always allow that so as long as you’re using a microwave safe dish, it is fine to heat your broth on a low setting.

We have had lab testing done on our broths for heavy metal and lead content and there are no detectable levels of lead in any of our broths. Chris Kresser has a fantastic explanation what you should and shouldn’t worry about that we recommend checking out here.

This new labeling is required by the USDA. Nothing about our process has changed! The USDA currently does not recognize bones as an approved ingredient (although we hope that will change soon!) and has required bone broth manufacturers list “broth” as the first ingredient – even though that’s not the correct order in which we craft our bone broth. We still combine triple filtered water, organic, pastured bones, organic onion, organic garlic, organic parsley, Celtic Sea Salt and unfiltered apple cider vinegar and simmer for 24-48 hours.

This is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive! The gelatinous quality you'll find in our bone broth when it is refrigerated is evidence rich collagen that has been extracted from the bones of the animal. This collagen is comprised of rich amino acids that play an important role in helping to stimulate the body to form new collagen that can support a healthy gut lining, healthy joints, hair, skin and nails.

In order to give bone broth a longer shelf life in the refrigerator, one of two things has to happen: an acidic preservative is added (citric or lactic acid) or it must be hot filled in it's pouch. Because most citric and lactic acids are made from GMO molds or sugars, we will never add those to our broths because it would compromise the nutrient-dense, healing properties.

Over the years, salt has gotten a bad rap. It's not salt that is the problem, but the quality of salt. This is why we use Selina Celtic Sea Salt. Celtic Sea Salt is a sun and air dried sea salt that is mined from pristine european waters. It retains up to 75 of it's naturally occurring minerals. This results in a salt that is actually good for you. Celtic sea salt provides minerals and electrolytes while helping the body to maintain proper levels of chloride, copper, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

Celtic Sea Salt has helped thousands of our patients in their journey to regain health. We are passionate about the kind of salt we use because we are passionate about health and the quality of every ingredient in our products. The salt we use in ALL of our products is one of the most doctor prescribed salts in the world:

Dr. Mercola is an expert in the field of salt. Here is an excerpt on his findings about salt:

"When you look at what the research actually says, I believe you will be convinced that salt is a major nutritional goldmine,that is IF you consume the right kind of salt.

Salt is essential for life—you cannot live without it. Salt has always been important to human life on this planet. Even the word "salary" comes from the root "sal," because Romans were paid in salt.

African and European explorers traded an ounce of salt for an ounce of gold—salt was literally worth its weight in gold.
Unrefined natural salt is important to many biological processes, including:

-Being a major component of your blood plasma, lymphatic fluid, extracellular fluid, and even amniotic fluid
-Carrying nutrients into and out of your cells
-Maintain and regulate blood pressure
-Increasing the glial cells in your brain, which are responsible for creative thinking and long-term planning.
-Helping your brain communicate with your muscles, so that you can move on demand via sodium-potassium ion exchange

A 2011 study of salt's effect on humans followed 3,681 middle-aged healthy Europeans for eight years. The participants were divided into three groups: low salt, moderate salt, and high salt consumption. Researchers tracked mortality rates for the three groups, with the following results:

Low-salt group: 50 people died
Moderate salt group: 24 people died
High-salt group: 10 people died

We use Selina Celtic Sea Salt. Why? In our clinical experience 100% of our clients muscle tested positively when introduced to this salt.

All of Selina's sea salts are naturally harvested from the ocean according to traditional methods, which assures that all of the nutritious natural minerals remain intact. These natural minerals balance the sodium content and help your body metabolize it. They also enrich the taste.

The unique combination of minerals in natural sea salt provides optimal nutrition for the normal functions of the body. In fact, the composition of naturally harvested sea salt replicates the natural mineral content of the water in your body.

Compare the natural excellence we’ve described with ordinary table salt. It’s processed by mechanical means. It is dried at high temperatures, a destructive process that strips the minerals from the sodium. It is also treated with artificial drying and anti-caking ingredients, so it flows smoothly from a salt shaker.

As a result of the destruction of the integrity of the salt, the body doesn’t know what to do with what’s left – sodium chloride, devoid of the other natural minerals that prepare the body to accept it.

Doesn’t it make sense that the salt we consume is better for us when it has the same composition as the natural ocean of fluids in the human body?

The realization inspires the belief that we should always prefer natural sea salt to processed table salt.

Yes! Our products are Whole30 approved with the exception of our Revitalize Drinkable Veggie blend (Spring Peas are not Whole30 compliant).

Our products are certified organic with the exception of our Frontier Blend. Although our Frontier Blend is not certified organic it actually reaches beyond the requirements of what even organic requires. Because the availability of organic lamb and bison bones is limited, they are not certified organic however all of the lamb and bison bones come from 100% pasture raised animals and independently owned small family farms. They are raised with minimal interference and they are never given antibiotics or hormones. They have full access to pasture for the entirety of their lives and the farmers who raise them follow strict and stringent humane animal welfare practices.

Our products can be found in over 2,000 retailers nationwide in retailers like Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, H-E-B, Ralphs, and more. Check out our store locator page to find a retailer near you.
