Is Bone Broth the ONE THING That Can Fix Your Skin? Interview with Dr. Kellyann Petrucci

December 3, 2016

When I first learned about bone broth (read more at, I learned about how it's so special--and it's different from other soup--because slowly simmering the bones, herbs, and veggies for so long delivers healthy fats, bioavailable forms of protein (gelatin), minerals and other nutrients that you can only get from inside the bones and cartilage of the beef, poultry, pork, or fish that you're using--not the meat or skin. These nutrients are particularly beneficial to the immune system and gut health (especially since the majority of the immune system lives in the gut), but also helps to build healthy, resilient skin from the inside out which is why we now see it associated with anti-aging skin health claims. What do you think, is the hype real, or is bone broth just another panacea that will fade away once the next big thing hits?

Dr. Kellyann Petrucci says bone broth is her one thing--and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

I have a real treat for you today, because I'm sharing my interview with the New York Times bestselling author of a book I love (with amazing recipes), Dr. Kellyann's Bone Broth Diet, Dr. Kellyann Petrucci. I really loved that book, it's about how to use my favorite thing--soup--to have gorgeous skin AND improve your overall health. The recipes in that book are quite delicious too! So when I found out that Dr. Kellyann wrote a cookbook with even more recipes--her new one, Dr. Kellyann's Bone Broth Cookbook (which also comes with amazing bonuses!)--I knew I needed to have her on my show. Get Dr. Kellyann's cookbook and bonuses here:

What piqued my interest the most about Dr. Kellyann, is that she's a doctor who focuses on a real, whole food solution for just about everyone, before she even considers other treatments or solutions. She's a naturopathic doctor, which means she's more likely to use food as medicine than an allopathic doctor--but even so, I've never talked to a naturopathic doctor who has such a laser focus on one thing, and feels so strongly about how well it works so many things and so many people.

Watch my interview with Dr. Kellyann to learn WHY bone broth is her one thing...

...and what about it is so amazing for the skin, as well as get the scoop about her new book. Dr. Kellyann also debunks the myth that it takes a long time to see results from holistic healing methods--be sure to listen for that!
