I am a huge fan of butter! My friends make fun of me because I buy butter from Costco and I usually buy 8lbs of it to last me a month. I live alone so this delicious butter is not shared with anyone else, it is just for me!
I am a firm believer in buying grass-fed organic butter. Why? Let me list the reasons.
1.) Grass-fed butter contains lauric acid.
2.) Butter is filled with antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin E (another antioxidant that helps protect our heart), vitamin K (helps our body with blood clotting), vitamin D(strengthens immune system and proper absorption of calcium), Activator X, aka.Vitamin K2 (bone strength and calcium distribution), selenium (an antioxidant that shows some evidence of reducing the odds of prostate cancer), and one of the best sources of vitamin A (promotes the health of our thyroid, adrenals, organs, and aids in the absorption of calcium).
3.) It tastes so much better, the rich color is an indicator that it is filled with nutrients.
4.) Butter helps fat-soluble vitamins be absorbed by the body which means that you actually benefit from the great healthy foods that you eat!
5.) Butter contains short and medium chain fatty acids, studies show that these acids help the great battle against cancer and benefits our immune system.
6.) Grass-fed butter has the highest levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which keeps you skinny (no, really- studies show that it helps with weight loss and weight management, and if that wasn’t enough- it fights against carcinogens.)
7.) Children are growing faster due to the hormones found in milk, when feeding your children organic milk and butter, you are keeping them from ingesting harmful chemicals and hormones that they do not need.
Yeah, and did I mention that it tastes amazing???
