Why 'Bone Broth' is Taking the Fitness World by Storm


This time last year, the new drink on everyone’s lips was cold brew coffee; nutritious, delicious, and timely to prepare, it ticked every box on the hipster’s 'beverage' checklist. But while this caffeinated tipple continued to enjoy it’s moment in the spotlight, a new drink was bubbling away in the background, and it’s just about ready spill out across the UK; dubbed ‘bone broth,’ we find out exactly what it all boils down to....

The Background

Piggybacking off the recent paleo trend, whereby fitness enthusiasts have championed what is effectively a ‘caveman’s diet,’ due to its simplicity, purity and high nutrient density, bone broth is literally as straightforward as it sounds. The drink began its rise to stardom thanks to New York chef, Marco Canora, who opened a takeaway hatch called 'Brodo,' outside his Manhattan restaurant, last October. Four months on, it was the drink of choice at New York Fashion Week, with fashionistas favouring it as a caffeine-free, vitamin-rich, and naturally low sugar alternative to previous liquid fads (we’re looking at you, fruit smoothies!).

Another three months later, and bone broth is on the verge of boiling over here at the UK. Celebrity food consultants, Hemsley and Hemsely, have made no bones about being huge advocates, while The Brighton Bone Broth Co was founded this month, with a view of rolling it out across the country.

The Health Benefits

So, just how nutritious is it? Well, the Hemsley sisters, who were brought up on it by their Filipino mother, have said that ‘nutritionally, it’s a champion all-rounder, packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, collagen and keratin.’ It also happens to be gluten and dairy free, not to mention the fact that you can literally make it from produce you would otherwise throw away. Simply simmer your leftover bones in a pot (6-12 hours for chicken, and up to 24 hours for beef), add a little salt, ginger or chili for flavouring, and you’ve got a muscle pumping, skin firming, gut fortifying elixirto go!
