Health Benefits of Butter and Oil in Coffee

Bulletproof CoffeeIf you haven’t heard about the Bulletproof coffee craze, you are going to now!

Skip breakfast, drink a lot of coffee (Bulletproof), and consume a few tablespoons of butter and coconut oil every day. That seems to go against all of the nutrition and diet advice you have been taught, right?

Let’s start with defining what is truly fattening:

  • Eating too much food, more than you need
  • Eating too much sugar and starchy carbs
  • A diet high in acidic, inflammatory foods (alcohol, sugar, wheat, corn, soy, canola, meat, soda drinks)
  • Inactivity
  • Drinking too much alcohol

Fat is not fattening. Fat is a FUEL SOURCE for the body. The nervous system, brain, and every cell of your body is made of fat. Fat consumption has decreased in the United States in the past 40 years, but obesity has dramatically increased. Healthy fats provide SATIETY, a craving cure.

Ingredients in Bulletproof Coffee

  1. High quality, grass-fed butter, 1-2 tbsp: Butter is very good for you, it is integral for hormone balance and a healthy stress response. Butter is also high in butyric acid, which feeds good bacteria in the gut. Butter can improve the immune system and aid in restoring balance when a lot of Candida is present.
  2. Brain Octane MCT Oil, 1 tbsp: Brain Octane is a purified coconut oil. It is the most bio-active form of coconut oil and provides 18X more MCTs than coconut oil. This oil is beneficial for mental sharpness and eliminating brain fog.
  3. Bulletproof Coffee, 1-2 cups: Bulletproof coffee is mycotoxin (mold) free, which may be present in a lot of conventional coffees, even organic coffee. Bulletproof’s creator, Dave Asprey, spent many years perfecting his coffee processing and sourcing the right beans. This coffee is so smooth, you can taste the purity.

When you blend all these ingredients together for 20-30 seconds in a blender, the butter and oil breaks down and creates the most DELICIOUS, creamy, and healthiest non-politically-correct breakfast. Even if you have adrenal fatigue, the Bulletproof coffee can reboot your brain and energy levels, without causing jitters or a crash later on in the day.

Give it a whirl!  Come see me at — your first cup is on me.
