Usually, when we drink coffee, we add some sugar and cream to improve its taste to our liking. But there’s a new trend now that could make you stop using the sugar and cream – a pat of butter. This trend goes by the name Bulletproof Coffee, and is believed to be able to help you kick your day into overdrive.
Many wellness experts support the use of butter to boost coffee’s taste and effect. If you’re unsure whether to try it, here are some reasons that could convince you to add some butter in your coffee tomorrow:
1.Great for People On the Go
If you start work or school early, you don’t always have time for breakfast before you leave the house. So, you could just add two tablespoons of butter to your coffee and this is already the equivalent of a complete meal. The butter will give you the calories and essential fats you need, so that you can perform better at work or school.
2.Energy for the Mind and Body
Staying alert is one of the reasons why people drink coffee in the morning. The Bulletproof Coffee will provide energy for the body, as well as the mind. In fact, it will increase your cognitive function, so that you will feel more alert for as long as six hours. And unlike traditional coffee, you will not experience any form of crash.
3.Good for Weight Loss
People who think about losing weight, don’t usually consider adding butter to their diets because it is filled with fat and is very high in calories. However, if you regularly put butter in your coffee, you will allow your body to adjust to the increased fat intake. It will become a routine for your body, so it will be much easier to trim your waistline down. In addition, grass-fed butter has conjugated linoleic acid or CLA, which has already been proven to reduce body fat, particularly in people who are considered overweight.
Adding butter to your coffee will definitely give you the fat that your body needs. And not only that, but it can also provide your brain with the healthy fats that are essential in creating membranes and hormones for better cognitive function. The short-chain fatty acid–butyrate–is believed to be effective in preventing heart disease, inflammation, and neurodegenerative disease, while increasing your energy.
If you want to increase your energy, satiety, and focus, start adding butter to your coffee today.
Recipe For Butter Coffee Or Bulletproof Coffee
Boil one cup of water.
Add one tablespoon of coffee powder and allow it to boil.
Now add one tablespoon of grass fed butter.
Add the mixture to the blender and whisk for 1 minute
OK, so your irritating hipster quotient is going to rocket into the stratosphere when you specifically order grass-fed cow butter with your organic Ethiopian-ground long black.
But is it worth it?
It just might be. Grass-fed butter’s got a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids that will actually regulate your cholesterol, not jack it up. Further, it’ll reduce body fat while the vitamin K helps out with warding away heart disease. It also contains the fatty acid Butyrate, which is one of those things that science used to say was bad for you. It’s now good for you (sigh), and has been found to prevent neurodegenerative diseases, increase energy, and contain anti-inflammatory properties.
So how much?
Two tablespoons in your coffee will effectively replace your breakfast, and is shaping up to not only be quicker than sitting down with some oatmeal, but also better in terms of essential fats and kilojoules. Drink one of these every morning and it’ll set your bod up to burn fat for the rest of the day, which is also thanks in part to the conjugated linoleic acid in grass-fed butter, which has been shown to help with weight loss(especially if you’re on the bigger side already). If you want to get crazy, add coconut oil or just straight up MCT to create an even more reportedly potent elixir of fat-burning and brain-boosting.
Think this might just be the latest in internet-spread pseudoscience quackery? Try it once and then try to tell the guy next to you slumped into his chair that you don’t feel better than he does.
Oh, and it doesn’t taste like crap. It’s actually kinda nice. Creamy, like. What’s nicer is the fact it’ll give you almost an entire working day’s worth of gumption (about six hours), which will more or less kick your 3:00 p.m. crash to the curb.
