Ghee is rich in medium chain fatty acids, which are absorbed directly by the liver (like carbs) and burned as energy. Athletes can use ghee as a consistent energy source.
Ghee is rich in butyric acid, a short chain fatty acid. Beneficial intestinal bacteria convert fiber into butyric acid and then use that for energy and intestinal wall support. A healthy body therefore makes its own form of ‘ghee’ but can aid that greatly by consuming it.
Ghee stimulates the secretion of gastric acid, thus aiding in the digestive process. Better digestion equals better health and weight loss.
Ghee is made from butter but the milk solids and impurities have been removed, so most people who are lactose or case in intolerant have no issue with ghee.
The energy from these medium chain fatty acids can be used to burn other fats in the system and lose weight.
Ayurvedic physicians have been using ghee enemas for centuries to decrease inflammation.
