Meet Youth Tonic!

By Amy Cole

You wake up in the morning and grab your water with lemon, you think about starting off the day with another jittery cup of Joe, but then you stop.

You reach for the jar of FOND Bone broth. It is heavy in your hand. This is the good stuff.

You gently turn the jar, the gold details glisten as you do - Youth Tonic - a decadent blend of rich shiitake, robust sage, and succulent shallot. **The perfect marriage of flavor and nourishment.

Can beauty really taste this good? Yes. Yes it can.

You open the jar and pour 5oz into a small saucepan. The aroma immediately starts to draw you in.

While the broth is warming, you turn to the other side of the jar. 20 grams of protein? No, we're not joking. And as a rich source of gelatin, your skin, hair and nails could want nothing more.

You pour it into your favorite mug, now almost giddy with anticipation - the cup reaches your lips - a ritual is born.

So what makes this delicious jar so special? 3 unique ingredients packed full of health benefits that you can't say no to:

 

Shiitake

Shiitake mushrooms are not only low in calories but they also offer good amounts of fiber, as well as B vitamins and some minerals.

Some of the potential health benefits of Shiitake include: aiding in heart health, boosting your immune system, anticancer activity, antibacterial/antiviral, and last but definitely not least, strengthening your bones.

Sage

Sage is a staple herb in various cuisines around the world. It belongs to the mint family, alongside other herbs like oregano, rosemary, basil and thyme.

Here are some of the wonderful benefits sage may contain: loaded with antioxidants, supports oral health, easing menopause symptoms, reduces blood sugar levels, memory and brain health, lowers 'bad' LDL cholesterol, and finally, sage may combat skin aging.

Shallot

Shallots are a small, elongated type of onion with a taste that’s often described as a subtle mix between a traditional onion and garlic. Loaded with nutrients and plant compounds, shallots offer numerous health benefits.

Compared with common onions, shallots are a more concentrated source of protein, fiber, and micronutrients, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, folate, B vitamins, and vitamins A and C.

Shallots are high in antioxidants, may relieve allergy symptoms, contain antimicrobial compounds, may support heart health and circulation, and finally they may support a healthy weight.
