"Historically, people have realized that broths not only offer a means of meeting nutritional needs but also benefit health. Your mother was right when she fed you chicken soup when you were run down; it has been proven to contain compounds of potential medical value, which help you recover faster from a cold. Anecdotally, bone broths have been used for ailments that affect the joints, skin, and gastrointestinal tract due to its collagen content, and for bone health as they contain calcium and magnesium, two minerals important for bone formation." -- Nick Sandler, on the health benefits of bone broth.
