Is it True that Butter is Better?

With all the “studies” that have shown that butter isn’t good for you because it is a saturated fat. How can butter be better than margarine?

Butter has a bit of a bad history because it has been classified as a “saturated fat”. The problem lies in the interpretation of what this could mean to your body and arteries.

As with all things in health, the news media can’t seem to make up their mind over what is healthy and what isn’t. It seems that the media really doesn’t report the FACTS!

Some of the “facts” aren’t at all what they appear to be.

What Makes Butter Good

Grass fed butter is naturally chock full of good vitamins including fat-soluble vitamin K2. Maybe K2 is new to you. It’s not as commonly talked about as A or E (which is also in butter) and it is a powerfully healthy vitamin.

It plays a role in cleaning out the calcium from areas in your body that shouldn’t have it which works to keeping arteries clean and soft. This keeps your arteries cleared, reducing risk of heart attack, and helps to keep your bones strong.

 

Butyrate in Butter

Butyrate is a fatty acid linked to reduced rates of colon cancer and shown to reduce body fat.

What they are seeing in these cancer cells is they are actually maturing into normal cells.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid in Butter

Another fatty acid shown to promote fat loss. It is also been associated as an anti-carcinogen. The weight loss popularity of Linoleic Acid is made it so you can get it in your butter or in supplement form.

What about Cholesterol in Butter?

Believe it or not we actually DO need cholesterol. We need it to keep our intestines healthy and operating right. We need it for early development of the nervous system and the brain. This is why kids NEED their milk.

Butter Fat

The fat in butter is partially why it tastes so good plus some of the fat isn’t the type of fat that goes in your mouth and sits on your hips. This fat is used as energy by your vital organs.

Cooking with Butter

Butter will burn at a high heat so if you need to cook at high temperatures you may want to choose a different healthy oil for this.
