Bone broth from same:
Bones are smashed for marrow and cooked in water with a little vinegar to extract calcium and other minerals.
In addition to calcium, bone broth contains "magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons–stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain." ~ Organic Thrifty
