The ONLY Butter You Should Eat
It’s hard to know what to eat these days.
Foods villainized a few years ago are now getting the green light – some of the key ones being eggs, full-fat dairy, and butter (and it’s about time).
I’ve been eating them all along.
But if you’re adding them back into your diet, there’s something you should know about butter…
Not all butter is created equal.
And there’s only ONE kind you should be eating.
People have been eating butter for thousands of years. And for most of that time, the butter was made from milk that came from grassfed cows.
It’s only been in recent years that cows were forced to live in feedlots and to live on corn- and grain-based feeds.
Most people don’t give it a second thought.
In reality, what the cow is (or isn’t) eating has a trickle–down effect that has a big impact on the nutritional content of the food made from cows… butter included.
Don’t get me wrong, butter is good for you no matter what the cow it came from is eating.
But butter made from grassfed cows is better. Much better.
All butter is a good source of fat and calories, and is rich in vitamin A, which is important for vision, immune function, and for maintaining healthy teeth, bones, and skin.
But grassfed butter in particular has a higher proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, which have consistently been linked to better heart health.
It also provides about 26% more omega-3 fatty acids than regular butter.
In addition, grassfed butter is a good source of vitamin K2, which plays a role in bone and heart health since it helps regulate calcium in your body. That means more calcium stays in your bones (stronger bones) and less ends up in your arteries (where it can cause harmful calcium and plaque buildup).
And while all butter has beta carotene, studies show that grassfed butter has a lot more of it.
This is great news, since consuming more beta carotene has been shown to lower the risk of diseases like macular degeneration, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
Grassfed butter also has significantly more CLA (conjugated linolenic acid) – a healthy fat that has been shown to help prevent conditions like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even certain cancers.
One study in particular showed that grassfed butter had 500% more CLA than regular butter.
I’m sure by now you’re getting the picture.
No matter what they naysayers say, butter is good for you. But for the MOST benefit, make sure it’s grassfed.
