This Simple Bone Broth Recipe Has Major Health Benefits

It's also great for weight loss.

Bone broth is packed with health (and weight loss!) benefits. Make this easy broth at home: As the ingredients simmer, the nutrients are released into the water in a form your body can easily absorb.

Think: Calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A and K, zinc, iron, selenium and those super-NB omegas. Then don’t forget the amino acids and collagen. Plus: Bone broth is excellent for your digestive system – and it promotes feelings of fullness and curbs hunger pangs, so it’s the perfect weight-loss tool.
