Butter has had its ups and downs as far as the health conscious are concerned. A few years ago, people used to put butter on everything but then it was decided that butter contained too much fat. Now the opinion is again drifting in the favor of butter. It has even gotten to the point that some people are using butter in their coffee as a substitute for cream and sugar. So, are there any real scientific reasons that butter is good for you?
Well it really depends on what the cattle that produce the milk from which the butter is made are fed. Cattle are commonly fed soy and corn because it is cheap. Cows, which are ideally meant to eat grass have digestive systems that don’t do well with soy and corn in the right way. Because of this, the milk that is produced by soy and corn-fed cows contain fats that aren’t good for the human body.
Grass fed cows on the other hand produce milk and butter that some say can improve your health. So, this is just one of the reasons why some people use butter in their coffee. Here are some more.
Using butter from grass fed cows in your coffee has the potential to keep your cholesterol levels under control and contains vitamin K which shields you from cardiac conditions.
The healthy fats from grass fed cows are beneficial for your brain and can also help in lowering the risk of various neurodegenerative conditions. Using the grass-fed cow butter in coffee works as an anti-inflammatory agent, shielding your heart from chronic diseases. The butter in your coffee has conjugated linoleic acid that can also help you slim down.
Who knew that adding butter to your morning coffee could have such beneficial qualities? Just remember that you must use the butter from grass fed cows for it to work.
