Benefits of Using Ghee butter Instead of Regular Butter


Recently I came across ghee butter in whole foods and I did some research. Ghee butter is basically the new coconut oil. In other words, it’s the latest ingredient with major health benefits that everyone should try. Move over margarine. And butter. If you haven’t yet encountered or tried ghee butter, now’s a good time.

While it’s become trendy in the Western world, this butter has been used for thousands of years in Southeast Asia. Traditional Ayurvedic practice (holistic Indian medicine) has prescribed ghee butter for digestive problems and ulcers as well as topically for burns or rashes. Punjabi cuisine uses ghee butter as its preferred cooking fat of choice, as it has a strong, nutty flavor.


Check out the benefits of using ghee butter.

1. Compatible with Paleo and Keto diets

These two diets are the latest to make the rounds as the ultimate in losing weight and feeling great.

2. Great source of vitamins

Vitamins K, A, and E are all packed into a serving of ghee butter. These vitamins help support good eyesight, healthy skin, and digestion. If you have trouble absorbing vitamins, ghee butter can up your daily vitamin intake.

3. Fatty acid content

Butyrate and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) are important fatty acids found in ghee butter. They help reduce inflammation and relief for those who suffer from digestive issues.

Butter also contains fatty acids, but ghee butter consists of almost double the amount that butter does. I’m not sure we’ll be seeing any ghee croissants anytime soon, but ghee butter is great as another tool to add to your cuisine, and it is very versatile. Just like coconut oil, ghee can be used topically for its healing and restorative aspects.
