While many say that bone broth won't break your fast, it still has some calories. If you are on strict intermittent fasting, then you should not choose a bone broth.
Bone broth is for you if you believe that you can consume up to 50 kcal during intermittent fasting.
Bone broth can help reduce hunger pangs. It contains numerous minerals and vitamins, has anti-inflammatory effects, carries benefits for bone and joint health, and is quite filling.
Broth can be made from pork, beef, chicken, or even fish bones. You can go for vegetable broth if you prefer, but bone broth contains more nutrients. It is not recommended to eat canned broths or add bouillon cubes full of artificial flavors and monosodium glutamate. It’s always better to add your own vegetables, herbs, and spices. During longer fasts, you may experience a salt deficiency which can lead to dehydration. Since it’s not present in water, tea, or coffee, you can add a pinch of salt to your homemade bone broth. Salt has minerals, such as potassium and magnesium, which can be particularly beneficial during fasting.
