The Magical Power of Medicinal Herbs

A question we are often asked at markets and tasting demos is:

“Why are your broths called elixirs?”

Here’s why: Because we want you to know that OWL Venice bone broths aren’t just an average stock. Each of our recipes was formulated to HEAL your gastrointestinal system and promote holistic wellness.

We understand the frustration and discouragement that comes with stomach issues. Being afraid to eat because of the pain that comes afterward is completely debilitating. We know — We’ve been there. So we decided to do something about it.

Along with all the benefits of bone broth (gut repair, joint support, increased bone strength), OWL Venice broths are packed with locally-sourced veggies, roots, and medicinal herbs to aid in digestion, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety, support brain health, and more.

In short, OWL Venice Bone Broths are good for your entire being.

If you look at the list of ingredients for our broth elixirs, you’ll notice that we use many of the same herbs in all of our recipes. Here are some of our favorites and the reasons why we keep using them again and again.
