Latest Trend in Health and Fitness: Bone Broth

April 04, 2015 1 min read

Late last year, New York City-based chef Marco Canora (Hearth) told the magazine Eater all about his new bone broth take-out window, Brodo, which has only grown in popularity since it's launch last November. "It's magical," Canora said. The chef roasts the bones he uses for his broth and then boils them for "24 hours or longer," which is far longer than most home recipes cite. (see original article here) The claims are that bones boiled anywhere from 24-48 hours will release added minerals and nutrients including glucosamine, gelatin and collagen. Although the trend has taken off worldwide, it is difficult to say whether or not the purported health benefits really stack up to their claims. It is a known fact that we don’t absorb collagen whole, so believing that we are receiving benefits of bone growth from the collagen in the bones may not be as exaggerated as the claims make.  In fact, scientific studies show that bone broth as with all broths do show signs of reducing inflammation, but that does not increase with the longer cooking times. In addition, it should also be noted that the bones you use should come from a free-range, no antibiotic raised chicken or cow.  I would not be as concerned with the chicken due to short life spans, but a cow not raised grass fed would give me pause.  The bones adsorb toxins into their marrow and would be a concern for release if boiled for over 24 hours.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
