It is less clear cut than the skin case. There there is a nutrient that is sometimes in short supply. The skin post should have concluded "Eat tripe, cartilage, tendons, bacon, oxtail, neck meat, headcheese, short ribs or skin for a healthy... (more)

In GAPS, you aren't supposed to drink bone broth until after GAPS intro - during intro you drink meat broth (a shorter cooked broth made with more meat, and less simmering of bone), which has less glutamates than the ultra long-cooked bone broths... (more)

Have you tried supplementing with home made bone broth? After 6 hours in my pressure cooker many of the bones are soft and crumbly so I eat them along with the broth.

Will my bone mineral density or bone mineral content or bone size or whatever increase from eating bones? Technique to eat bones: cook as a bone broth until they're edible. Preferably mushed up in the actual broth.

Maybe. If you're coming off a SAD-style diet to a Paleo-style diet, you might well end up with denser bones, but the relationship isn't going to be linear. At some point, your bones will achieve a normal density and then stop getting denser due... (more)

Yup, the jelly was the gelatin. Put it in the fridge next time so that the fat will end up on the very top and can be taken off. It will get hard. Use the fat to cook your eggs.
