Bison Broth Elixir: Why it’s Our #1 Pick This Time of Year!

Remember the song “Home on the Range”? This American classic paints a dreamy picture of the United States in the late 1800s and was recorded by artists such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. But no matter how iconic this song might be, we can’t help but point out a glaring inaccuracy in the first line, “Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam…”

Unless the original author of this song was longing to live in South Asia or Africa (where buffalo are indigineous), they must have actually been talking about bison. You know those big bearded guys you see while driving through the plains in Middle America? Yep — Those are bison, not buffalo. And their bones make a delicious, flavorful broth! 

Keep reading to get the inside scoop on what makes our Bison Bone Broth Elixir so special. Today we’re breaking down the flavor profile, the healing herbs we include, and one of our favorite ways to cook with it. 🍲

All About Our Bison Bone Broth Elixir

OWL customer, Michelle F., hit the nail on the head with this review of our
Organic Bison Bone Broth Elixir…

“This is by far the best tasting bone broth I've ever had. The flavor is unique, incredibly bold and 100% unmatched. I sit down on my couch and cozy up with a mug of this broth before I go to bed every night! It has become my favorite part of my night time routine! I will continue to buy this broth for sure due to the awesome flavor and clean ingredients. Love, love, love!”

Our bison bone broth is unique, super flavorful, and extra comforting.

At OWL Venice, we use only the finest ingredients in our broths. All of our bones are from local farms that treat their animals with care. They’re fed an organic diet, given the freedom to roam, and eat only grass and plants their entire life. (You can read more on that here.)

While quality bones are a major part of what makes our broth exceptional, we don’t stop there. We mineralize all of our broths with Bragg’s apple cider vinegar and simmer for over 24 hours with healing herbs, roots, and veggies that are source from local organic farms. Because of this, all of our products are free of toxins like pesticides, insecticides, leads, and growth hormones.

OWL Venice Bison Bone Broth Elixir is one of our most robust broths and is a customer favorite because of its savory flavor. On top of that, the herbs and veggies we simmer in this broth reduce inflammation, support brain health, and alleviate anxiety.

Meet two of the MVPs in our bison broth elixir...

Lion’s Mane and Turmeric

First up: Let’s talk about lion’s mane. No, we don’t mean the long hairs that grow around the neck of a big cat… we mean lion’s mane mushroom! This species of large mushroom got its name because of their shaggy exterior that looks like a lion’s mane. Not only do they have an extraordinary appearance, they also offer some extraordinary benefits.

Lion’s Mane is known for the following health benefits:

  • It can prevent against dementia.
  • It protects against ulcers in the digestive system.
  • It helps manage diabetes symptoms.
  • It reduces inflammation.
  • It boosts the immune system.
  • It may help fight cancer.
  • It reduces risk of heart disease.
  • It may help heal injuries to the nervous system

Moving on… You know that beautiful yellow color of some curries? That’s turmeric! Turmeric is a medicinal herb that is high in antioxidants and has a strong anti-inflammatory effect thanks to a compound with medicinal properties known as curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and it offers some major health benefits.

Turmeric is known for the following health benefits:

  • It’s anti-inflammatory.
  • It improves brain function.
  • It can lower the risk of brain disease.
  • It can help prevent cancer.
  • It can help alleviate depression.
  • It may help delay aging.
  • It may help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease.
  • It can lower the risk of heart disease.
  • It stimulates the body’s antioxidant defenses.

The Spark Notes Version:

Lion’s mane and turmeric are two powerful ingredients that make our bison broth elixir one-of-a-kind! Because we include thom in our recipe, OWL Bison Broth Elixir is extra effective at fighting inflammation. It can also support brain function, prevent illness, and protect against conditions like Alzheimer’s Disease, heart disease, diabetes, and depression. And that’s in addition to all the other benefits of bone broth. Pretty impressive — right?
