How To Make Instant Pot Bone Broth In Under 2 Hours

Whether you call it “Jewish penicillin” or “Home cooked health”, Grandma had it right. Soup is food for not only the body, but the soul.

Bone broths can be protein sparing, which means that meat goes a lot further when eaten in a broth. Think chicken noodle soup, right? This is great on the budget. Bone broths are wonderful for sipping on in the cold winter, too. You can get the benefits of broth in a warming drink.

Is bone broth good for you? Here are some bone broth benefits:

Chicken bone broth can help the body overcome colds, flu, and other maladies, as well as provide minerals. Bone broths are a good source of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur and are more available in ready to use forms through broth. The gelatin in the bones is also thought to be a good digestive aid.

Bone broths, like chicken bone broth also contain collagen from the bones. Collagen helps form elastin and other compounds within skin  that will help maintain skin’s tone, texture and appearance. It is thought that collagen can reduce the signs of aging, puffiness and even diminish wrinkles. The collagen from the bones may help skin, hair and nails become strong and healthy.

Other benefits of a good bone broth are:

  • Treat leaky gut syndrome
  • Overcome food intolerances and allergies
  • Improve joint health
  • Reduce cellulite
  • Boost immune system

Having bone broth on hand all the time is a good idea, right? Let’s make some bone broth fast!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It’s probably one of the easiest recipes I’ve read and I hope I can make it once I’m not too busy anymore. But because I love bone broth I bought Au Bon Broth. I’m liking it so far, it’s tasty and delicious. Other than that, it’s organic too.

    1. some say it is to help “pull” minerals from the bones. There isn’t a definitive scientific yes or no on this, so at this time, I don’t always do it. If I remember, it does add a bit of flavor, but I am not obsessive about it.
