A Bone-Loving Sip
Using herbs that are abundant in bone and muscle-supporting minerals such as silicon, magnesium, calcium and selenium is a smart and easy way to build health. Turn those herbs into teas and you can stay hydrated at the same time!
Horsetail (also called Shavegrass) and Nettle Leaf make an amazing base for a tea that supports bone and muscle health. Using those two as the base, you can add in fresh fruit or other more tasty herbs to customize and add flavor to the brew.
You can also brew strong infusions of Horsetail and Nettles for use in smoothies, or add a bit to bone broths.
Here is my favorite way to enjoy these bone-loving herbs!
