Bone broth is great for helping with digestive issues.
Many people have leaky gut, often caused by overeating, consuming too much sugar, not enough fibre and the use of anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen. There is more information on the causes of leaky gut on the Harvard website.
A bone broth fast is one of the best ways to help heal leaky gut. It is also vitally important to remove foods that might cause gut inflammation, such as processed foods and (possibly) gluten.
