Detox Broth

March 17, 2016

bone broth Lily Mazzarella
3 Broth Truths:

1)Broths are at once cleansing and nourishing.

2) Nutrients in this broth are solubilized, easily absorbed from the intestines and ready to be lapped up by your cells.

3) Regular broth consumption is life-changing.





Benefits of broth (based on feedback from my practice and my own experience):

  • Improved hydration and electrolyte balance
  • Decreased hunger and cravings
  • Increased energy
  • Enhanced immunity
  • Enhanced elimination and detox

Drink 1-2 cups daily throughout your cleanse—best between meals.


Beets (makes a red broth that I find delectable, particularly when finished with a dash of Apple Cider Vinegar and fresh dill): beets contain a substance called betaine, which supports healthy hydrochloric acid levels, detoxification pathways (methylation), and liver health.

Burdock root: long used for backed-up states of the lymph, blood, and skin, this wonderful weed also contains inulin, a "prebiotic" which feeds healthy strains of bacteria in your gut.
Turmeric: enhances digestion, improves bile flow, and helps support and protect the liver. If you use dry turmeric, you may get a bitter flavor to your broth—the fresh rhizome is sweeter and pairs well with ginger and a little lemon peel.
Seaweed: Seaweed in your broth drives up mineral content and helps your body detoxify. If you love it, feel free to flood your broth with kelp, kombu, bladderwrack or whatever else you can get your hands on.

Don't worry too much if you don't have every single ingredient in the following recipe, or you don't like seaweed…don't sweat it. Feel free to leave out and add ingredients at will. There is no perfect way to make broth, and there are many perfect broths!

  • 1 small bunch spinach
  • 1 small bunch flat parsley
  • 1 small bunch cilantro (optional)
  • 1 small bunch swiss chard or kale
  • 4 stalks celery with tops
  • Here in Sonoma County, the nettles are coming out! Toss in 1 handful nettles, if you have them growing near you! Harvest wearing thick gloves.


  • ½ inch knob of ginger, peeled & roughly chopped
  • 1-2 pieces of Kombu or other seaweed


  • ½ onion, large shallot or 1-2 leeks
  • ½ celery root (aka, celeriac)
  • 1 medium-sized carrot


  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ of 1 clove
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Himalayan pink salt or high quality sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper


Wash & roughly chop all ingredients. Don't worry about peeling them. Combine in the largest pot you have (a stockpot is a great investment, if you don't already have one!). Cover with filtered water & bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer, cover partially & cook for a minimum of 1.5 hours.

Strain & add salt to enhance flavors. The salt should be detectable, but not taste salty. Add pepper to taste. Pour into quart-sized mason jars.

Refrigerate 1-2 quarts & freeze the rest. Broth can be drunk freely, at any temperature, & used as a base for your Protein-rich Emerald Soup.

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.

The best B Vitamin I've tried

I'm very happy with this vitamin. Easily digestible, and I can feel the difference in energy levels when I'm taking this regularly.

I love this

I take this most mornings for both a mood and energy boost. I also take it if I’m feeling sluggish and want to enhance mental clarity. I highly recommend this blend.

Gift Card

Received the gift certificate for my birthday from my daughter-in-law. I Had shopped in Farmacopia one year ago. Wanted to shop again. Due to Covid it’s hard to do. Searching for products online was easy. Purchasing items online was easy. Calling the store to make sure my order was ready was easy. Picking up my purchase at the store was easy. I will shop Farmacopia again. Looking forward to trying all the products I purchased.

Definitely helps

I’m not celiac but I am lactose & gluten intolerant. I avoid eating gluten always but sometimes I’m tempted by cheese. I recently ate some goat feta and I had no problems. I didn’t over unduly. Usually any amount of dairy causes me stomach pains and so much bloating. I don’t make a habit of taking this in a regular basis but it’s also come in very handy when I’ve gone out to eat or over to a friends (pre covid) and cheese has bean sprinkled on top and it’s always hard to remove it all.
