The majority of people are skeptical about putting butter in coffee, they even think it’s bad for you, but you should know that all butters are not dangerous to health. On the other hand, there is only one type of butter that you should put in your coffee: the butter fed on the grass. But why?
Most cows are fed corn or soybeans. It’s economical and it stalls well, but cows should not eat that, they can not even digest it, and their milk does not produce the right kinds of fat for our body. In addition, grass-fed cows produce the best meat, and milk made from these cows is just as good.
Here are five reasons why you should start putting grass-fed butter in your coffee:
1. It’s the only one with good fats that regulate cholesterol levels, instead of adding them. It has the best ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and is a good source of vitamin K, and according to one study they all help to lower the risk of heart disease.
2. It provides healthy fats for your brain and body to create cell walls and hormones. The short-chain fatty acid Butyrate, has been linked to the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases, increased energy expenditure, and is also anti-inflammatory, and prevents other heart diseases.
3. By drinking butter in their coffee, people help their body burn fat all day, helping to lose fat. CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), contained in grass-fed butter, helps to reduce body fat especially in overweight people.
4. The “Bulletproof” coffee gives you energy and a better cognitive function for about six hours. Mixed with more healthy fats like coconut oil, this drink will help produce ketones, which are created when the body produces energy from fat instead of carbohydrates.
5. It only takes two tablespoons to replace a lunch, making it a quick alternative for people who have very little time.
When you mix it with coffee, you get a very creamy drink that gives your body energy. But why stop there? If we have to put the best butter in our coffee, we should put the best for everything. According to its creator entrepreneur Dave Asprey, by putting butter and TMC oils in the coffee, we get the fatal weapon against the bar of 11am and the craving that goes with it.
There is no concrete evidence
But does it really work? Although there is no scientific study that has examined the effects of bulletproof coffee, the absorption of fat promotes the assimilation of nutrients. Fats also tend to slow down digestion which would slow down the entry of coffee into the body, producing a longer energizing effect.
On the other hand, butter is a very rich food, including saturated fatty acids that are suspected to increase heart risk. According to nutritionist Andrew Weil, this would be irrelevant today, but if he extols the virtues of a moderate consumption of fat, he explains on his website not to feel at ease idea to advise patients to eat butter.
However, according to Andrew Weil, the risk would be quite low. “Mixing a spoonful of good quality, unsalted organic butter in your coffee or morning tea is not,” he says. After all, buttered sandwiches and coffee are a classic of our breakfasts!
