Have you been told that butter is bad for you? Do you feel guilty when you add it to your bread at dinner? Or when you bite into a rich, decadent dessert?
Well then I’ve got good news for you.
Adding butter to your diet can be one of the FASTEST ways to improve your health!
Sounds crazy, right?
I don’t blame you for thinking that. But keep reading and I’ll explain exactly why butter is such a powerful booster to your health.
First of all, butter is a GREAT source of several key vitamins and minerals, including:
Vitamin A – which helps to keep your vision healthy and support your endocrine system.
Vitamin D – which is crucial to fighting cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Vitamin E – which improves immune system, lowers cholesterol, and is a powerful antioxidant.
Manganese and Chromium – both of which have been shown in dozens of studies to help lower blood sugar and fight Type II Diabetes.
Second of all, butter contains several very important short and medium-chain fatty acids.
Now the term “fatty acid” might sound like a bad thing, but don’t be fooled. Fatty acids are essential for a healthy immune system, a boosted metabolism, and optimal intestinal function. They also have very strong anti-tumor effects, meaning they can help fight against cancer.
And finally, butter can actually be an incredible weapon in the battle against heart disease!
In fact, a study published in Nutrition Week even found that men who eat butter regularly were 50% LESS likely to develop heart disease compared to men who used margarine.
So the next time someone gives you a dirty look when you reach for the butter, set the records straight!
They may be shocked…they may try and argue with you…they may think you’re crazy…
But at the end of the day the research doesn’t lie: butter can be great for your health!
Until next time, take care of yourself and each other!
