“Bone broth is a nutrient-dense, beneficial treat that is rich in collagen, gelatin, glucosamine, glutamine, chondroitin, sulfate, magnesium and other trace minerals,” says Johnna Devereaux, a certified clinical pet nutritionist and director of nutrition and wellness at Bow Wow Labs, Inc., in Novato, California.

When you slow cook those bones, collagen and cartilage are boiled down, releasing nutrients that deliver anti-inflammatory benefits and help joints stay strong.
