It’s FROZEN. IT GELS. IT HEALS!
I’ve been lucky enough to have had a few experiences with different bone broth brands over the last few years, and I can honestly say, that BONAFIDE is the very best I’ve EVER had.
Not only is it nutrient dense, and made with only the best, top quality ingredients, it’s also versatile. The flavor varieties are spectacular, and offer something for everyone, and every recipe. Rich, and flavorful.. Bonafide Bone Broth is my new fave!
I WAS AT MY WIT’S END…
In 2006 I was a mother at her wit’s end. I had a six-year old son who had been on and off antibiotics since birth, suffering from chronic sinus infections, ear infections, and respiratory infections. After a particularly upsetting meeting with his first grade teacher, who was recommending ADD medication – on top of everything else – I knew there had to be another way.
I began searching for alternative solutions, but information was hard to come by – this was before you could find the answer to everything online. I even went so far as to dig through the stacks at my local, public library. Finally, I came across the concept that bone broth could help strengthen the gut lining, and, therefore, heal the immune system. I had nothing to lose, so I told my husband, Reb, to go find some bones. I removed all processed foods from my family’s diet and incorporated bone broth into every meal we made. After three months my son had not needed antibiotics once. Six months went by. Then nine. Then a year. Blake hadn’t gone to the doctor’s office once. We knew we were on to something.
THE PEOPLE NEED BROTH!
The healing power of real food and traditionally-made bone broth had changed my family’s life. I had to do something with this knowledge and experience, so I shared with everyone that would listen – including random strangers standing in line at the grocery store. But that wasn’t enough. I wanted to really help heal people, not just pass on advice. I became a certified clinical nutritionist, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and GAPS practitioner. I opened my practice in Del Mar, California, and within a year I had a four-month waitlist. Thousands of people across the United States, and some in Canada and Mexico, were desperate to heal their bodies with real food.
THE BIG BROTH PROBLEM…
Bone broth was a cornerstone of my healing protocol. But, unfortunately, traditional bone broth is hard to make and even harder to buy. Not many butchers were selling bones back then and there was no store-bought bone broth that met my standards. So I convinced my husband, Reb, who is a professionally-trained chef, to create a recipe from my ingredients, and a preparation method that most closely mirrored what I was doing in my own kitchen. Reb spent hours upon hours searching for butchers and farms to provide the quality bones and ingredients we were looking for, and even more time figuring out and perfecting our cooking method. In 2011 we launched Bonafide Provisions (originally Real Bone Broth) with the mission of making traditionally-prepared bone broth available to all those who need it.
TRUE BONE BROTH. TRADITIONALLY MADE.
We are committed to staying as true as possible to the cooking methods of our ancestors and keeping food as nature intended. That means no shortcuts. No preservatives. It’s our goal to make sure that every batch of our broth contains the maximum amount of collagen (you can tell by the gel) and that nutrients are preserved at their peak. This is why we store our broth by freezing it fresh. From our kitchen to yours, it is our mission to help everyone experience abundant wellness through the healing power of real food.
WE MAKE IT GEL
We obsess over our ingredients and preparation method to make a collagen-rich broth that turns to gelatin when it’s cooled.
We use nothing but grass-fed, pasture-raised bones (and some collagen-rich chicken feet.) No meat or added stock in our broth.
We store our bone broth by freezing it (just like you’d do at home), which preserves flavor and nutrients at their peak.
WE ARE CERTIFIED
Everything from our ingredients to our packaging and production meet rigorous organic standards. We do it because it matters.
The collagen and amino acids in bone broth help strengthen and repair our gut lining, which is home to over 70% of our immune system.
Gelatin and collagen help strengthen the skeletal system, rebuild connective tissue, ease joint pain, and reduce inflammation.
SKIN, HAIR & NAILS
A damaged gut can lead to inflammation of the skin. Collagen helps repair the gut and provides the building blocks for healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Research calls our gut our “second brain.” When you support your gut, you directly affect how you think and feel.
