I consider ghee—a form of clarified butter—an essential powerfood. Here are a few benefits I’ve found through my years of using ghee. 🔔High Nutrition:
1. Ghee is rich in the oil soluble vitamins A and E.
2. Ghee is rich in K2 and CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) – an antioxidant with anti-viral properties if it is sourced from grass fed cows. 🔔Energy and Weight Management
3. Ghee is Nutritionally Rich Like Coconut Oil
Ghee is rich in medium chain fatty acids, which are absorbed directly by the liver (like carbs) and burned as energy. Athletes can use ghee as a consistent energy source.
4. Weight Loss
The energy from these medium chain fatty acids can be used to burn other fats in the system and lose weight.
Digestion and Immune Strengthening
Ghee (unlike other oils) is rich in butyric acid, a short chain fatty acid. Beneficial intestinal bacteria convert fiber into butyric acid and then use that for energy and intestinal wall support. A healthy body therefore makes its own form of ‘ghee’ but you can aid that greatly by consuming it.
5. Healthy Digestive Tract
Research shows that people with unhealthy digestive tracts do not produce butyric acid.
6. Healthy Immune System
Research shows that adequate production of butyric acid supports the production of killer T cells in the gut and thus a strong immune system.
7. Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Cancer
