If you’re trying to improve immune function - your gut health needs to be a MAJOR priority.

Afterall, approximately 70-80% of your immune system resides in your gut.

And while eliminating potentially problematic foods is a great place to start, adding the right kind of bone broth is another incredible (and delicious) healing strategy. 

So if you’ve wanted to know all about the wonderful benefits of bone broth (and how to choose the highest quality versions) check out my enlightening interview with the founder of Kettle & Fire, the fastest growing bone broth company in the country, Justin Mares.
