Bulletproof Coffee Is All The Rage, But It’s Not For Everyone
What’s the deal with people putting butter in their coffee? We can thank Dave Asprey, the creator of the small company Bulletproof for this seemingly strange concoction. The Bulletproof Coffee recipe calls for coffee from low-mold coffee beans, grass-fed unsalted butter and MCT oil, all mixed up in the blender. Asprey created this cult coffee drink based on the yak butter tea he stumbled upon while hiking in Tibet.
The high-fat diet of drinking Bulletproof Coffee as a breakfast replacement can supposedly lead to weight loss by suppressing your appetite, give you energy and possibly provide mental clarity. Critics of the beverage say that it lacks essential nutrients, excessive saturated fat isn’t good for you and your cholesterol levels could reach new heights. While there are some nutrients in Bulletproof Coffee, it doesn’t outweigh the benefits of having a nutritious breakfast in the morning.
Grass-fed butter contains a few fat-soluble vitamins and there’s no harm in adding a little bit into your morning cup of joe every once in a while. Although there hasn’t been too much research done on the health benefits of Bulletproof Coffee so don’t count on it for any miracles. If you’re in optimal health with no cholesterol problems, give this rich caffeine drink a shot.
