    I think you'd have a hard time consuming too much since it's got so much water in it. You'd be peeing it all out. The only thing I think you'd have to watch is salt content if you tend to want salty broth.

    Oh, I don't add anything to it yet. Still new at it. Just the bone, a little vinegar and well water. But it finally gets thick! Thick as jello. Figured out it keeps in the fridge long-term under a seal of fat.

    I don't think you can possibly have too much. If you've ever looked into the GAPS diet the intro phase calls for unlimited bone broth.

    I drink a lot of it, too. I'm really missing my green/black tea, which I had to go off due to the caffeine (I'm trying to heal my adrenal fatigue). So I replaced it with bone broth and drink it multiple times a day - probably around a quart or more a day.
    I haven't noticed any negative effects and hope that it might also heal my gut a little as a beneficial side effect.

    I've heard that you can simmer the bones multiple times, until they disintegrate. Anyone know of that?

    If it doesn't bother you, it's probably fine.

    I find bone broth to be somewhat constipating. But YMMV.

    I heard that consuming too much calcium can definitely be a problem: my question is: when they say that 4000 mg is too much yet that equals probably over four grams of bone and many of us eat bone broth that has almost completely disintegrated bones in them: what does that mean? Also I believe if you are using chicken or turkey bones, that there would be a significant amount of magnesium and potassium in there as well. I don't know how much bones by weight comprise of magnesium or potassium exactly but I heard it was a significant amount. Also: arginine is a protein which is good for us but when it is present it the same meal as lysine it competes with it to be absorbed and it really reduces the amount of lysine absorbed in the same meal. Gelatin is rich in arginine. But bone broth is very beneficial: I just have my worries lol.
