You, better. Trust your gut. image

We are taking the bone broth cleanse to a new level by infusing it with specific tonic herbs such as dandelion, echinacea, turmeric, ginger, lemongrass, and kombu (vegan mineral broth base); and organic and adaptogenic powerhouses like shiitake and reishi mushrooms.

BONE BROTH is one of the most beneficial foods to consume to restore gut health and support immune function and healthy inflammation response. Collagen, gelatin and amino acids (proline, glutamine and arginine) help seal openings in the gut lining and support gut integrity. This is a feat that even modern medicine cannot compete with. Bone broth is easily digestible and soothing to the digestive system, unlike many other foods that can be difficult to fully break down. Gelatin is also beneficial for restoring strength to the lining of the stomach and fighting food sensitivities, helping with the growth of probiotics, and supporting healthy inflammation levels in the digestive tract.

BONE BROTH is one of the best and only sources of natural collagen. As we age, our joints naturally experience wear-and-tear and as a result, we become less flexible and cartilage diminishes. Collagen also helps form elastin and other compounds within the skin that are responsible for maintaining skin’s youthful tone, texture and appearance. Gelatin, one of the star ingredients in bone broth, acts like a cushion between the bones that helps them “glide” without friction. Gelatin also provides the building blocks that are needed to maintain and form strong bones, helping take pressure off of aging joints and supporting healthy bone mineral density.

BONE BROTH is full of amino acids, collagen, trace minerals and dozens of other nutrients found within the bones that are not easily obtained from other commonly eaten foods. It’s low in calories and very high in minerals and other nutritional compounds that many people lack. Bone Broth is known to strengthen every part and system in the body from the stomach to brain, from muscle to ligaments and tendons. Bone broth is one of the most ancient food substances on earth. It has been used in almost every culture throughout history to improve health and support a healthy immune system.

BONE BROTH + SOUP

Soup that is made with a base of rich bone broth and vegetables add fiber and nutrients. Adding soup takes the edge off of a traditional liquid or juice-only cleanse. Many find it easier to adhere to a soup cleanse for longer periods of time because it’s a more versatile and realistic option to add to your daily diet and thus translates to increased benefits.

Vegetables are simmered in a nutrient-dense bone broth and pureed, so it’s still highly digestible and easily absorbed, packed with nutrients and the added benefit of fiber to help things move along. Since the soups are more like a traditional meal in terms of flavor and temperature, it makes it easier for people to maintain a longer fast because it adds variety for meals throughout the day. Not everyone has the time, patience or fierce dedication required for a strict juice-only cleanse. Combining soup with the power of bone broth is an effective way to cleanse that isn’t as rigorous to maintain.

BONE BROTH + COLD PRESSED JUICE

Combining bone broth with cold pressed juices is a powerful way to feed your body using two different, yet potent sources of liquid nutrition. The juice will supply the body with a boost of vitality from concentrated nutrients found in fresh vegetables in combination with the highly absorbent, mineral and collagen-rich bone broth. The purpose of cleansing with bone broth and juice is twofold. First, many people who have done a strict juice-only cleanse have often had trouble completing the fast due to feeling foggy, lightheaded or ungrounded because they are not able to completely rest. The bone broth + juice cleanse is considered easier to maintain because adding bone broth adds balance and vitality. The variety of flavors and temperatures of the bone broths make this cleanse more durable and easier to endure.

Bone broth and juice both flood your body with an array of nutrients, while still allowing the digestive tract to rest and restore without the risk of feeling overloaded or clouded; or foggy from the fruit sugars in the juice. The collagen, protein and small amount of fat in bone broth helps people feel more satiated and full in between the juices, which allows for far more benefits in combining these two types of cleanses.

The bone broth + juice cleanse is for those who choose to take the most nutrient-dense route possible. It’s the ultimate cleanse for powerful detoxification and repair from the inside out.
