souped up bone broth

I needed an extra boost last week, so I souped up my bone broth. Here are some of the ways I supercharged it and why.

 

dandelion greens

  • 535x the vitamin K you need in a day, and 112x the vitamin A
  • Great for bones and skin,  great for the brain and vision
  • High in fiber, vitamins C & B6, thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, iron, potassium, and manganese

chlorella

  • High in protein, chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins A, K, B2, and B3, Iron, Magnesium, and Zinc
  • Acts as a chelator to remove heavy metals and toxins from the body
  • (Contains moderate levels of Iodine which can affect some thyroid conditions & Vitamin K which can increase clotting. Consult your Doctor if you have an auto-immune disease or other concerns.)

cilantro 

  • heavy in antioxidants, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, magnesium, vitamins, A, C, K, and B vitamins
  • Antiseptic, anti fungal, disinfectant, antibacterial
  • Great for reducing swelling caused by arthritis & rheumatic diseases
  • Lowers bad cholesterol and increases healthy LDL cholesterol
  • Stimulates digestion
  • Acts as a chelator that helps remove heavy metals and toxins from your body

parsley

  • 3x the vitamin C you find in an orange
  • 2x the iron you find in spinach
  • Stimulates the bowels, so great for digestion and constipation
  • also purifies the blood and is an anti-carcinogen
  • Has dietary fiber, vitamin A, copper, and manganese

lemon

  • Tons of vitamin C, which, when combined with its flavonoid glycosides, provides free-radical zapping activity, protecting blood vessels, preventing cholesterol buildup
  • Good source of thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, iron, magnesium, fiber, B6, calcium, potassium, copper, and folate
  • Has powerful antioxidants: citric acid helps dissolve kidney stones and ascorbic acid, beta carotenes, lutein, vitamin A and more, are all essential to the body
  • Bonus: low sugar way to cut the bitterness of greens in a juice!

Most of these ingredients are easy to add into your diet. How will you boost your next meal? Comment below if you need tips!
