Bullet Coffee – Should You Add Butter or Coconut Oil?

Hey Coffee Lover!

The thought of adding butter to your coffee might sound like a bad idea, but it’s actually healthy for you and it doesn’t taste too bad. Some people claim you need to add the right kind of butter, but personally, I use real unsalted butter. I only do this once a day or once every other day, though.

Your total health nuts and purist claim you want the kind of butter that comes from cows that are fed only grass. Here’s an article from Dr. Axe about the topic of butter and grass fed cows.

Adding healthy fat, like butter, to your coffee can help you lose fat. It’s long been noted that healthy fats are good for you and aren’t as likely to make you fat as bad fats.

It doesn’t take much butter in your coffee to give you these benefits, which is one of the reasons that so many people are now doing it. All it takes is a teaspoon of butter to add to your healthy eating plan.

Plus, it tastes good and doesn’t give you the same hunger for sweets that adding sugar to your coffee does. Grass fed butter is the kind of fat that’s good for you – including helping your brain function.

If you’re on a low carb-high fat diet, you may want to look into the benefits of bulletproof coffee.

For people who have a coffee drinking habit, adding the butter can cause your body to burn fat even when you’ve finished with the coffee for the day. If you’re hesitant at the idea of adding butter to your coffee, try it once and find out for yourself.

You can also try adding coconut oil to your coffee. Just like grass fed butter, this oil is loaded with what’s called medium chain triglycerides. What this means for you is that when you put it in your coffee, it gives you energy – and it’s a fast energy, unlike the kind that you get from eating foods containing other forms of fat.

Unlike the fats in other foods, medium chain triglycerides don’t turn into stored body fat, which in turn keeps the weight off while at the same time gives you plenty of health benefits.

Coconut oil helps protect your brain’s cognitive function and reduces your risk of getting certain conditions that affect the brain such as Alzheimers Disease. This oil is also rich in antioxidants, which means that it will fight inflammation in your body.

On top of its ability to handle inflammation, the oil is known for its antibacterial as well as it’s antiviral measures. If you do decide to try adding coconut oil to your coffee, you should buy organic coconut oil. The recommended serving of this is about a tablespoon.

    Butter in coffee. Not for me. Now I do add a bit of creamer, but I’ll save the butter for a baked potato.
