If you haven't heard of Bulletproof Coffee yet, you've surely been living under a rock...
People are putting butter and MCT oil in their morning coffee and swearing by the amazing results. Creator of the phenomenon, Dave Asprey, claims that drinking a fatty cup of joe instead of eating breakfast in the morning is a secret shortcut to boosting your energy and losing weight.
Still not convinced? Read on for five reasons why you too should be putting butter in your coffee - and just using more of it in general.
Five benefits of drinking Bulletproof Coffee
#1: Omega fatty acids regulate your cholesterol levels
Grass-fed butter has the best ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, which help reduce body fat
, and is also an excellent source of vitamin K. According to research, both omega fatty acids and vitamin K help regulate cholesterol
and prevent heart disease
#2: Healthy fats feed your brain and cells
Healthy fats found in grass-fed butter and MCT oil are fantastic for your brain and body to create membranes and hormones. Once thought to be bad for your health, the short-chain fatty acid Butyrate has been associated with increasing energy expenditure, preventing neurodegenerative diseases and even preventing heart disease
Burn extra calories by eating more fat!
Did you know there’s one type of saturated fat
that encourages your body to burn more energy as fuel. And that only means one thing: You lose more weight.
#3: Conjugated linoleic acid improves fat burn
CLA or conjugated linoleic acid found in grass-fed butter speeds up fat burn to help reduce body mass, especially in overweight
people. By drinking Bulletproof Coffee every day, you’ll put your body in the routine to burn fat all day.
#4: Ketones boost your energy levels
Made with healthy fats contained in coconut oil, Bulletproof Coffee produces ketones and increases brain function for about six hours without the crash that you get from regular coffee.
#5: Essential fats keep you full for longer
Just two tablespoons of grass-fed butter in your coffee is enough to replace a breakfast meal altogether. You can thank the high content of essential fats and calories in Bulletproof Coffee for this! It’s a quick, easy and very satisfying alternative to your regular morning bowl of cereal or oatmeal – especially for people who are constantly on the go.
