Halle Berry swears by this $1 food for anti-ageing
But it turns out we’re mistaken, because Halle Berry is fifty-freaking-two. No, you didn’t read that wrong; that’s her real age.
While you’re still processing that frankly earth shattering information, we’ll let you know how she did it. Bone. Broth. That’s it. No surgery, no witchcraft, no magic elixir of youth. Just plain and simple soup.
“You can make it, you can go to the butcher and get all the bones they’re going to throw away and he’ll give them to you for free,” she told Extra.
“Take the bones, boil them up for 24 hours…and you drink the broth. It’s so full of collagen that it’s crazy.”
Bone broth has really taken off over the last few years, and when you look at Halle, it’s pretty easy to see why. The fragrant stew is packed full of calcium, vitamin D and other skin-revitalising nutrients, plus, it’s low in calories. #winning
“Your body converts those nutrients into essential amino acids that are needed to keep your skin and bones healthy,” New York City dermatologist, Craig Austin, M.D., founder of Cane + Austin skincare told Women’s Health.
“These nutrients are then sent to the bloodstream and will supply the dermis—the deepest part of your skin—with naturally produced collagen.”
In case you’re still sceptical, bone broth fits straight into Halle’s keto diet plan, with just one gram of carbs per cup. Look younger and lose weight at the same time? Sign us up for a cup ASAP!
