About a month ago, there was an extensive article in our local Asheville, NC paper about bone broth. According to the article, it was described as a “health tonic” or a “health-giving elixir”. It is rich in collagen and amino acids needed to “strengthen tendons, joints, and ligaments.” And best of all, it only takes 72 hours to make. This article gives a fair assessment of bone broth, its strengths (if any) and its limitations. It probably would do no harm if you want to go to the trouble of making it – but don’t believe the hype.
