Can butter be the answer to unlocking your true potential? To the delight of butter lovers everywhere there has recently been an onslaught of mainstream news corporations citing a study that suggests saturated fat has no correlation with heart disease. This is a complete paradox to what has been nutritional “common knowledge” for the past 50 years.
Dave Asprey from www.thebulletproofexec.com takes this a step further in suggesting that butter may actually be GOOD for you. For the past few months I have been experimenting with his concoction of coffee, butter, and MCT oil that he deems “Bulletproof coffee”.
The practice is nothing new and is still common in many other countries but is now making a comeback in the U.S. as a means of clearing “brain fog,” giving sustainable energy, controlling inflammation and stimulating your body’s fat burning potential. MCT oil, in recent studies was proven to promote weight loss, and butter is rich in butyric acid which has been proven to ease inflammation in the gut (better nutrient absorption) as well as increasing insulin sensitivity. The proposed concoction does set you back roughly 400 calories but keep in mind that not all calories are created equal.
