Bone broth is the latest superfood fad to hit the shores of Australia. It’s a fairly simple recipe—made from boiling bones and various spices to create a bone stock—and it has a huge number of health benefits. Some of these include improved digestion, healthier bones and joints as well as reduced cellulite. These nutritional benefits of bone broth are thanks to the high protein, collagen and mineral content that is extracted from the bone in the process of boiling.
Kombucha is a special type of tea, fermented with a colony of bacteria and yeast. While this doesn’t sound too appealing, the tea is both delicious and hugely beneficial for your health.
