Nourishment Notes

Bone Broth

Bone broth is nutrient dense and easy for the body to digest to promote healing. Specifically, bone broth has been shown to help reduce inflammation associated with joint pain from arthritis. It may also help boost the immune system, lower the risk for infection or illness, maintain healthy skin, and promote a healthy gut.

RA Cooking Tips

  • InstaPot® Alternative

    If you don’t own an Instantpot®, this recipe can be prepared by cooking all of the ingredients in a large pot on the stove for 8-10 hours.

  • Use Pre-Made Bone Broth

    Although it may not contain as high amount of beneficial nutrients, bone broth can also be purchased pre-made at most grocery retail locations. Look for grass-fed, hormone-free based broth if possible.
