There are two ways to get your prescription filled at the best cost. The first is to get a paper prescription when you visit your doctor. Then call your insurance company and ask them which pharmacy has the cheapest price on that particular drug. Prices can vary even at preferred pharmacies. Some carriers have an “Rx Price estimator” function online. The second is to go to GoodRx.com and select the drug you need. If the price is cheaper than your plan offers, print out the GoodRx coupon associated with the drug and pharmacy and take it with your paper prescription to that pharmacy.
If you are sensitive to the inert ingredients in a drug, consider having it compounded.

Bone Broth Breakthrough by Dr. Josh Axe is a good introduction to the benefits of bone broth. Along with amino acids, collagen, gelatin, and trace minerals, the author lists key nutritional compounds found in bone broth. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) have the primary role of maintaining and supporting collagen and elastin. They also help restore the intestinal lining. Glucosamine helps keep up the integrity of cartilage. Another GAG is hyaluronic acid, found throughout connective, skin, and nerve tissue. It supports healthy aging, cell rejuvenation, and skin firmness. A third GAG is chondroitin sulfate, which is found in cartilage and joints, supports bone and skin health. Bone broth also provides minerals and electrolytes in an easy to absorb form. Calcium, magnesium, and potassium as well as phosphorous are important for supporting healthy circulation, bone density, nerve signals, heart and digestive health. Collagen, another nutritional compound found in bone broth, helps form connective tissue and protects the lining of the GI tract. Some important amino acids found in collagen include proline, glutamine, glycine, and arginine.
The author says there are sixteen types of collagen, but 80 to 90 percent of it consists of three types. Type one is the most abundant and strongest kind in the human body. It is found in tendons, and is used to form bones and support wound healing. Beef bone broth is a good source. Type two, found in our joints and connective tissues, is best for repairing the gut lining and is found in chicken and turkey broth. Type three collagen is a major component of the extra cellular matrix that makes up our organs and skin. Beef bone broth is a good source.
In summary, the six major benefits of bone broth are as follows: it protects the joints; it is good for the gut; it helps maintain healthy skin; it supports immune system function by restoring gut health; it boosts detoxification both of the cells and the liver; and it aids metabolism. Most of the book is recipes and how to use bone broth protein products, but the author also includes instructions on making fresh bone broth.
