For clear, perfect broth, use a pressure cooker. Even clear, gelled broth is "hazy" when cold. it's easy to scrape off the fat after refrigerating overnight--it's all at the top. But your fat phobia is misplaced if you hope to "heal your gut". (more)

Bones can be or should be used max to max 2 times, its because we boil it in very high temperature and if we use it for 3-4 times then there is of no use.

Strain your broth and enjoy it freely! Broth should be no problem even though you can't actually see through it. Liquid fat will not hang around in the colon.
