7 Reasons Why We Should All Be Enjoying Ghee!
The benefits of Ghee are no secret, its been used in Ayurveda for centuries to enhance ‘Ojas’ (life energy) and our immune systems. It is said that ghee nourishes the ‘Dhatu’s’ or the tissues in the body and the brain.
Our 100% Certified Organic Sol Ghee not only tastes delicious with its unmistakable nutty aroma, but here are just some of the added health benefits that you can look forward to.
1. GHEE KEEPS THAT DIGESTIVE TRACT IN CHECK
Did you know that Ghee helps convert fibre into butyric acid? This short chain fatty acid supports the health and healing of your small and large intestine. Your body uses intestinal bacteria to create butyric acid, which it uses for energy and intestinal wall support. Research shows that people with unhealthy digestive tracts do not naturally produce butyric acid.
2. GHEE REDUCES INFLAMMATION
Due to those butyric acid boosting properties, Sol Ghee is a natural anti – inflammatory. In recent research, butyric acid has been shown to actually decrease inflammation in parts of the body, particularly in the gastrointestinal tract. Ghee is now a recommended dietary addition for some people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease to ease inflammation.
3. GHEE IS LACTOSE FREE
What?? Butter is dairy isn’t it? Even though ghee is made from butter, the milk solids and impurities have been removed, so most people who are lactose or casein intolerant have no issue with ghee. That delicious, buttery flavour is maintained, so you get that incredible taste without the allergies. Sol Ghee is also suitable for a Vegetarian and Paleo diets.
4. GHEE IS HIGH IN OMEGA’S AND VITAMINS
Sol Ghee is rich in essential Omega fatty acids 3 and 9. Ghee is also full of healthy fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E, and K. These fatty acids and vitamins are vital for promoting bone and brain health, and for boosting the immune system.
5. GHEE LOWERS CHOLESTEROL AND PROMOTES WEIGHT LOSS
Studies have shown that ghee can reduce cholesterol both in the serum and intestine, it does this by triggering an increased secretion of biliary lipids. The benefits of maintaining a healthy digestive tract will also foster an environment of better health and weight loss. The energy generated from the medium chain fatty acids can be used to burn other fats in the system and help with weight loss.
6. GHEE HAS CANCER BUSTING PROPERTIES
Ghee is rich in CLA's (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), an antioxidant full of cancer busting properties according to nutritionists. Sol Ghee is made from the Organic butter of grass fed cows, which is one of the highest sources of CLA. Also, that high dose of Butyric acid (that stuff sure is good) is a preventative to any cancers that are result of underlying chronic inflammation.
7. GHEE HAS A HIGH SMOKE POINT
Sol Ghee is a healthy cooking oil due to its incredibly high smoke point - (250°C / 480°F). Ghee does not become toxic at high temperatures like many other oils, since it cooks at a higher point than almost any other oil, it won’t break into free radicals like other ones. Free radicals can potentially be harmful to one’s health, and when oil smokes, it can be hazardous to a person's respiratory system if constantly breathed in.
Use Sol Ghee as a healthy alternative to butter or in place of oil. Perfect for frying, sautéing, baking and roasting. Try it stirred through steamed rice; you will never taste better rice – ever! Ghee does not need refrigeration; it does not spoil easily and can be kept as a shelf staple.
