Bone broth brings numerous benefits especially to the immune, digestive (it's perfect for bowel care because the amino acids, vitamins and glucosamine it contains help repair its walls) and locomotor systems.

However, bone broth also has contraindications linked above all to the presence of lead in a concentration higher than 10 times compared to that present in a normal broth.
