There’s a new trend going around that may forever change the way you drink coffee, it’s called ‘Bulletproof coffee’. Instead of the usual cream and sugar, many people are now adding something else to their coffee to lose weight – butter. But beware, not all butters are suitable to be had everyday in your drink. In this case, there is only one type of butter you should put in your coffee: grass-fed butter. Only grass-fed butter has the right fats that regulate cholesterol, not add to it, according to Nextshark.
What’s so great about this new craze?
Good source of Vitamin K: Grass-fed butter has the best ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (which reduces body fat) and is a good source of vitamin K, both of which according to a studies reduce the risk of heart disease.
Healthy fats: It provides healthy fats for your brain and body to create cell walls (membranes) and hormones. The short-chain fatty acid Butyrate, once thought to be bad for you, has been linked to preventing neurodegenerative diseases, increased energy expenditure, and is also anti-inflammatory, further preventing heart disease.
Helps weight lost: Drinking it each morning puts your body in the routine to burn fat all day, helping you trim down overall. CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), found in grass-fed butter, has been shown to reduce body fat mass especially in overweight individuals.
