We recently discovered a fantastic, healthy and fat-burning coffee concoction that we must share with you. Butter coffee, also known by the brand name Bulletproof Coffee, is a nutritionally rich drink that has several health benefits--but only when you use butter from grass-fed cows and add Medium Chain Triglyceride oil (from coconut oil). Here's the scoop:
- Grass-fed butter contains the right ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids--which are the "good" fats that regulate cholesterol and reduce body fat--and is a great source of Vitamin K, both of which reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Grass-fed butter contains the fatty acid butyrate, which is a healthy fat for your brain and body to create cell walls and hormones. Butyrate is linked to many health benefits, such as helping to prevent colon cancer, decreasing inflammation, and contributing to mechanisms of weight loss (appetite suppression and burning fat for energy rather than carbs).
- Grass-fed butter coffee prompts your body to produce ketones, which puts your body into burning fat for energy.
