Bone Broth has many health benefits that have attracted many people for centuries. A traditional broth is a liquid containing brewed bones and connective tissues. It can be beneficial for the joints, digestive system, and especially our immune systems. Bone broth is gaining in popularity, and we have plenty of options with our turkey, beef, chicken and bison broth elixirs, but we thought... what about our vegan friends?!
After meeting so many customers at our in-store demos who wanted to try the benefits of bone broth, but who didn’t eat animal products for various reason. We wanted to come up with a vegan version of our broth elixirs that would have similar immune boosting properties as our non-vegan broth elixirs. We created our Organic Vegan Mineral Broth Elixir with this in mind.
Our healing vegan broth elixir is mineralized with apple cider vinegar, lightly seasoned with herbs, roots, and vegetables sourced from local farms. The result is an earthy-citrusy savory broth loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, designed to nourish the body and boost immunity. You can drink this broth as a comforting, warm beverage, or add it as a base for soups, rice, and more.
Bone Broth is packed with benefits to begin with, but we infuse our OWL broths with medicinal herbs with healing properties, transforming them from a traditional stock into an elixir that promotes holistic wellness. Our vegan, mineral broth elixir contains mushrooms and seaweed which boost immunity, support thyroid health, and contain anti-aging properties.
