Turkey Noodle Soup

Taking the time to make your own turkey bone broth or stock is well worth it, and I really like the convenience of having some on my pantry shelves. And just think, when you want to make soup, it's just a matter of minutes to put it all together. Even better? You know what's in it!

What are the benefits of Turkey Bone Broth? Bone broths are extraordinarily rich in nutrients – particularly minerals and amino acids. Bone broths are a good source of amino acids – particularly arginine, glycine and proline. Glycine supports the bodies detoxification process and is used in the synthesis of hemoglobin, bile salts and other naturally-occurring chemicals within the body. Glycine also supports digestion and the secretion of gastric acids. Proline, especially when paired with vitamin C, supports good skin health. Bone broths are also rich in gelatin which improves collagen status, thus supporting skin health. (source: Nourished Kitchen)
