Benefits of Bone Broth

Some call bone broth meat water. Our friends at Kettle and Fire call it liquid gold!

Since humans don’t eat bones in their whole form, cooking them into a broth that’s simmered for 10 to 20 hours (or more) is the best way to release their powerful nutrients, and experience a whole new level of benefits. Here’s what the Bone Broth experts at Kettle and Fire have to say! 


Bone broth has many benefits including:

  • Promote Gut & Digestive Health
  • Support joint mobility
  • Support skin, hair, and nails
  • Supports better sleep
  • Enhanced Results on the Keto, Paleo, and Intermittent Fasting Diets

Bone broth has a rich history of being used as a digestive tonic, especially in traditional cultures as far back as 2,500 years ago. Today, it’s one of the top recommended foods for supporting digestive health.

The reason bone broth supports the gut goes back to collagen, which forms gelatin when it’s cooked down even further. Collagen and gelatin contain amino acids such as glutamine that supports a healthy inflammatory response


What better way to nourish your bones and joints than by consuming more of the nutrients already found within them, including hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin, calcium, and magnesium. Bone broth contains all of these nutrients, plus several amino acids that support joint mobility and healthy inflammatory response like glycine proline. It’s for these reasons that bone broth is becoming a go-to drink among athletes.

A fun fact: Kettle and Fire Bone Broth was born because our co-founder, Nick, tore his ACL playing soccer and needed a high-quality bone broth to help speed up his recovery time. (You can read more on that here.)


Even if you had never heard of bone broth before, you’ve probably heard of collagen, thanks to the beauty industry.

Many anti-aging skincare lines add collagen to their face creams, moisturizers, and serums (and sell them for a pretty penny). But what many people don’t know is that collagen molecules are too big to be absorbed through the skin, which means these creams can’t provide much in the way of results.


Deep, restful sleep is something we could all use a little more of. In fact, stats show the average person gets less than 7 hours of sleep per night, so it’s important to do everything you can to make those hours count.

Bone broth contains glycine, an amino acid that supports the Central Nervous System (CNS). When taken before bed as a supplement, studies show glycine may support sleep quality. It’s even more effective when paired with other sleep-supportive nutrients, like calcium and magnesium.


Bone broth is an excellent option for the Paleo Diet and is encouraged to drink during periods of intermittent fasting. It also fits in well with macronutrient requirements on the keto diet.

The benefits of bone broth are so powerful, that an entire diet – The Bone Broth Diet has been created around it.

Chicken Bone Broth Benefits

  • Contains collagen – Organic chicken bones (especially feet!) add extra collagen to your broth.
  • Chicken is a natural protein source and the same goes for chicken bones. Kettle & Fire bone broth contains 10 grams of protein per serving.
  • Support gut health – chicken bone broth contains amino acids like glycine and glutamine that help keep your gut working properly, which aids in digestion and keeps your immune system in check.

Beef Bone Broth Benefits

  • Contains bone marrow – Bone broth made from 100% grass-fed cattle and simmered over long cook times extracts bone marrow that contains nutrients your body will love.
  • Contains amino acids – Similar to chicken bone broth, the nutrients extracted from beef bones contain amino acids like glycine and glutamine that aids digestion and promote gut health.
  • Support gut health – chicken bone broth contains amino acids like glycine and glutamine that help keep your gut working properly, which aids in digestion and keeps your immune system in check.
