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.

There are two words that send shivers down everyone’s spine: Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a condition that’s characterized by a buildup of toxic beta-amyloid plaques in your brain. They interfere with the communication between neurons in your brain, and they lead to the death of neurons. It’s a devastating double-whammy. But a recent study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that nature’s “green secret” could be...
Overall, cancer is on the decline. That’s the good news. But the bad news is that it could be declining MUCH faster than it actually is. Nearly 10 million people still die every year from this disease. But there’s one simple step you can take — starting today — to help keep you from being one of those 10 million. It’ll help you beat the “biggest...
Whether you have type 2 diabetes or not, you should be paying attention to your blood sugar levels. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, high blood sugar levels can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, nerve problems, and more — even if you don’t have diabetes. Fortunately, you don’t have to swear off...
COVID-19 is finally on the decline — and it’s about time. As we speak, mask-wearing mandates are being lifted in many states. But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. In fact, it means you need to be taking even more steps on your own to make sure you’re protected. Like loading up on one key nutrient that could decrease your risk of severe complications if you ever do get COVID-19. A...
Alzheimer’s is devastating for the patient AND for his or her loved ones. Although there is no cure, many recent studies have offered a ray of hope for everyone affected by this disease — whether you’re the patient or their loved one. In fact, in one recent study, researchers identified a natural compound that can reverse some of the most devastating memory effects of Alzheimer’s. It’s one of the biggest breakthroughs...
Let’s face it, we all know people who “look great for their age.” Well, here’s a crazy idea: What if we took our biological age and threw it out the window. Because frankly, instead of accepting aging as a part of life, I’d rather focus on vitality at any age (NOT vitality despite my age!). There are plenty of lifestyle change you can...
Make no mistake about it: Medicine is big business. I wish most doctors and medical organizations made decisions based on the patient’s best interests — as opposed to the bottom line… But too often that’s not the case. What does that mean for you? It means you could be counseled to get a procedure or a surgery that you DON’T need. Because let’s face it, mainstream...
When it comes to COVID-19, you should be doing whatever it takes to lower your risk — especially if you’re an older adult. According to the CDC, 8 out of 10 COVID-19 deaths have been in people over 65. And, compared to people 5-17 years old, the rate of death in folks from 65-74 is 1300 TIMES HIGHER. That’s not a typo. But whatever your age, you can do...
There’s no doubt that what you eat impacts your physical health. But food’s impact on your mental and emotional wellbeing is just as powerful. There are plenty of reasons for this connection. A big one is because your gut contains neurons, and serotonin (the neurotransmitter that’s involved in depression and anxiety) is particularly abundant in your gut. Personally, I find that fascinating. Plus,...
You know by now that type 2 diabetes can increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations, and much more. But if you “only” have pre-diabetes, you might be tempted to think that you’re in the clear. Not so fast. Why? Because a recent study found out that these hidden dangers of pre-diabetes could be just as deadly as diabetes itself. Prediabetes is considered...
