We start with high quality bones – grass-fed marrow and knuckle beef bones, and free-range chicken frames and feet. Our butcher deals with a handful of B.C. farms, often times they are certified organic. The medicinal blend of spices include fresh ginger, fresh turmeric root, dry turmeric powder, black peppercorns, green cardamom pods, cinnamon bark, fenugreek seeds and bay leaves. According to Ayurveda, all of these spices support gut health and contain anti-inflammatory properties. When infused into the collagen-rich bone broth it forms a potent, restorative, delicious food. We roast the bones to improve the flavour, and add apple cider vinegar to extract the maximum amount of nutrients. All the spices we use are certified organic and fair-trade from India and Sri Lanka. Unlike almost all other bone broth brands, we do not use onions or garlic and this is intentionally done because as per Ayurveda they are not suited for sensitive stomachs (although they can be delicious and contain their own benefits, and can be simmered in while reheating).
Our bone broths are influenced by the food-as-medicine approach of India’s ancient sophisticated food science – Ayurveda. In Hindi and several other South Asian and Middle Eastern languages, “shorba” refers to broth or soup. We simmer the bones with Ayurvedic spices known to compliment the benefits of bone broth and in turn boost its efficacy. Consuming these elixirs regularly can strengthen immunity, keep joints healthy and make your skin glow. Many of our customers consume medicinal quantities up to 500ml daily to address issues such as connective tissue repair post injuries and surgeries, muscle recovery from athletic activities, Leaky Gut syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, etc. People going through chemo therapy, or limited digestion capabilities due to age have also found our bone broths beneficial since they are simple to consume and the nutrients are easily bioavailable. In Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine bone broth has also been prescribed as an important postpartum food. Bone broth is totally an ancient superfood!
