Bone Broth Cleanse Basics

Our Bone Broth Cleanses are meant to reboot your gut health, set you on a path to feeling better and supply you with better eating habits. The idea is to keep it simple!

Just TWO pouches of bone broth per day plus whole foods. This means pastured and grass-fed proteins, good saturated fats (avocado, coconut oil, and ghee), and organic vegetables. NO dairy, grains, or added sugar which cause inflammation in your gut. Bone Broth is naturally anti-inflammatory and improves digestion, allowing your gut to do a mini “reset”.

How the bone broth cleanse works

  • Drink 2 pouches of bone broth per day.
    - We recommend drinking 1 pouch of the Chinese Herb Infused Bone Broth (Revive the Gut, Recovery, or Immuni-Qi depending on the cleanse) on the first and last day of your cleanse.
  • Eat
    - Pasture-raised proteins that are grass-fed or at the very least organic
    - Healthy fats like avocados, nut butters, and coconut oil
    - Organic fruits and veggies
    - NO dairy, grains, and added sugars
  • If it's easier, all you have to follow is a paleo diet plan.

Coffee: To drink or not to drink?

Because we all know how important coffee can be to a routine and energy, I’m leaving this one up to you. If you want to quit caffeine for a week, you should feel empowered to do so! If changing your whole diet plus eliminating caffeine is a deal breaker, then by all means you can drink black coffee. You just need to replace your sugar and milk additions with just coconut cream if you can’t drink it plain black. Coconut Cream from the can is sweet and delicious and because of its fat content, can even give you an extra kick in the pants. If you have not tried this yet, I highly recommend adding a Tablespoon of coconut cream to your morning coffee with a good mix using a hand held frother, whisk, or fork. Ultimately, it’s up to you!

The bone broth experts at Osso Good’s ultimate guide on bone broth fasting. Learn everything you need to know about the bone broth fast.

The nutrients found in bone broth can be incredibly beneficial, and consuming it on a regular basis is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to help you feel your best.

Pump up the nutrients

Bone broth is a natural source of hard-to-get nutrients, like collagen, gelatin, several trace minerals, and anti-inflammatory amino acids, which support gut, skin, and joint health.

Ready, Set, Sip!

With all these powerful benefits, you can see how drinking bone broth on a regular basis may have a huge impact on the way you feel. But have you ever considered doing a bone broth fast?

So, what’s up with a Bone Broth Fast?

Similar to a water fast, a bone broth fast involves taking a break from solid foods and consuming liquids throughout the day. But during a bone broth fast, instead of drinking only herbal tea and water, you drink several cups of savory bone broth throughout the day. And that tasty broth keeps you feeling full and satisfied.

The benefits of the bone broth fast

First, let’s talk about the benefits of fasting in general. Fasting is a great way to give your system a “reset” and help your body’s natural processes work more efficiently—such as energy production, metabolism, and digestive function. And best of all buh-bye, bloating!

Be a fat burning machine

For most people, during the day, you’re in the “fed” state. This means your body is working hard to digest, absorb, and assimilate all the nutrients from the foods you eat. But when you enter a fasted state—which simply means you’re not taking in any calories—your body can shift gears and use your energy to focus on the functions that are prioritized after digestion, such as burning fat and boosting metabolism.

Burn without burning out

This is why the “fasted” state is often referred to as the “fat-burning” state. And although you might expect to feel tired or weak without eating, many people experience more energy, less brain fog, and improved focus and concentration when they enter the fasted state.

Give your gut a break

Fasting also gives your digestive system a break, and when you’re not eating inflammatory foods such as refined sugar and carbohydrates, the beneficial bacteria in your digestive system has a chance to rebalance.

Bone broth: premium fasting fuel

Bone broth is a great liquid you can drink when you fast. It’s like filling up your gas tank with premium fuel. This is because bone broth is a source of bioavailable nutrition to support your body’s natural healing processes without taking you out of a fasting state.

As mentioned above, bone broth contains naturally-occurring collagen and gelatin, but animal bones also contain several other compounds and amino acids that support the body, such as glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, proline, and glycine. These nutrients can:

  • Support digestion
  • Support joint health
  • Support skin health
  • Support a healthy immune response

Nourish your bod’ with broth

Of course, drinking bone broth at any time (not just when fasting) will offer these benefits. However, when you’re fasting and consuming only bone broth, your body may be able to digest and absorb these nutrients even more efficiently, allowing them to go where they’re needed that much quicker.

Easy does it: the bone broth fast

It’s simple to do a bone broth fast, all you need to do is consume five to eight cups of bone broth (in addition to herbal tea and water) during a fasting period of 24 hours. This 24-hour period is long enough to give your digestive system a reset.

Sip away

One of the nice things about a bone broth fast is that you can have as much as you want. Let’s say you’re 150 pounds, you’ll need to drink about six cups of bone broth to meet your daily protein needs. But if you want to drink more than eight cups, that’s totally okay!

The two-day way

If you want to continue your bone broth fast beyond 24 hours, we recommend drinking four to six cups of bone broth per day, and eating one Paleo-friendly meal that contains protein. You can do this for up to two more days and then return to your regular eating.

Getting the most from your bone broth fast

Drink bone broth that’s made with quality bones and connective tissue, such as grass-fed beef bones or organic chicken bones. Your broth is only as good as the bones of the animal it came from. For this reason, we recommend only using grass-fed, grass-finished beef bones or organic chicken bones.

Bone broth fast FAQs:

Q: Can I eat anything during a bone broth fast?

A: It’s normal to get hungry during a fast, but if you get to the point of being uncomfortable, feel free to add a tablespoon of coconut oil, ghee, or grass-fed butter to your broth, and you can snack on raw veggies.

Q: How often can I do a bone broth fast?

A: If you are in good health, once per week is safe. It’s actually best to do it consistently—every Monday, for example.

Q: What’s the longest period of time I can fast for?

A: There are mixed opinions from health experts on how long a bone broth fast should last. Some say up to four days. However, we recommend going no longer than 24 hours without solid food.

In any case, it’s still important to check with your doc before doing any type of fast to make sure it’s 100% safe for you.

Q: So, can I use regular stock or broth instead of bone broth?

A: Nope. A bone broth fast is so beneficial primarily because of the amazing benefits of collagen and gelatin—which are the result of simmering bones and tissue for approximately 24 hours.

A Bone Broth Fast is nourishing, satisfying and effective.
