Make no bones about it — bone broth’s popularity is still on fire and, at least in these winter months, it continues to be a hot trend. Hundreds of stories have been written about this seemingly astonishing soup, raising it from appetizer status to highlighting it as an on-the-go beverage and magical diet mainstay.

My video interview with TODAY.com explored the myths and facts about bone broth and the even included a recipe for you to try at home. (Don't be surprised if your grandma already knows how to make her own version without needing a recipe.) Since you may be seeing this soup on a restaurant menu or supermarket shelf near you, before you sip, slurp and swallow, here are some pros and cons to be aware of:

Watch sodium content.Not all bone broths are created equal. While some might have around 100 mg of sodium per cup, others contain more than 400 mg and beyond for the same amount…and that’s just for 1 cup. Regular rations of the stuff could wreak havoc on your blood pressure or, if you’re salt sensitive, cause fluid retention and bloat.

Beware of hidden ingredientsbringing unexpected calories. Broth-based soups are usually low in calories, but some may contain cream, butter, or oil which could jack up their caloric value without boosting nutritional value. Read food labels when possible and don't be shy about inquiring about what’s in your steamy bowl when dining out.

Make it work for weight loss. You might find stories that show that consuming bone broth could help melt pounds away, but this process may not be as simple as it seems. Weight loss would certainly ensue if this soup replaced cookies or a candy bar or if it acted like a speed bump and prevented the higher calorie nosh you may have otherwise chosen in its place. But don’t expect this soup to speed up your metabolism, dissolve cellulite or provide any special powers. Let's keep it real...it’s soup.

Create a veggie vessel. Why just have plain broth? Soup is a perfect carrier for vegetables and lean protein. Add fresh, canned, or frozen veggies, quinoa, barley or whole grains, or make it a main dish by including some chicken, beans or a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top. If your kids don't like to see vegetables, use an immersion blender to give rise to a creamy mixture. (But don't keep those veggies a secret; let your kids know why their soup was so delicious and they might even request vegetables in other dishes!)

So is bone broth the next superfood? I say yes, if you invite other foods, as mentioned above, to join in the party. But as far as making your wrinkles disappear, you’ll probably have to keep looking for that super serum. No research to date has demonstrated that bone broth can fulfill the long list of attributes that have been bestowed upon it but as far as keeping you warm on a chilly day, it might just hit the spot.
