Ninety five percent of sugar beets grown in the U.S. are genetically modified and doused with glyphosate (Roundup) and other pesticides. There is a very strong correlation between exposure to glyphosate formulations and the risk of various cancers, including non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. The World Health Organization has also published a summary on glyphosate and has classified it as “probably carcinogenic in humans”… some good reasons to avoid sugar altogether!
Bone broth, the preferred drink of our ancestors and trendy beverage now found across America, has many benefits:
Heals and seals your gut helping to eliminate and prevent leaky gut.
Protects your joints with glucosamine.
Helps you to look younger with renewed skin, hair and nails.
Promotes better sleep.
Provides immune support because of the high concentration of minerals.
Helps build your bones with high levels of phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
What exactly is bone broth? How is it different from stock? Well, bone broth is made from mainly bones with a little meat or vegetables, and stock is made from meat and vegetables with, perhaps, a small bone. Go to your local meat market or grocer and ask for grass fed beef or bison bones. Place your bones in a large pot, and cover in filtered water. Add some vinegar, wine, or a bit of tomato paste to extract nutrients from the bones and help them to dissolve. Cook over low heat for 48-72 hours. You may need to watch the pot and add water if it boils down too much. And, note that you can also use chicken or turkey bones. The bones will become soft and begin to break down. Now, you have broth…enjoy your hearty, healing drink!
