For many years now, there has been controversy around whether butter is good or bad for us and this is why other margarines and spreads were created due to the concern with saturated fats like butter, playing a huge role in health issues, heart disease, and cholesterol issues.

In recent years we have thankfully seen through studies and evidence, that butter is not actually causing us the harm they thought and in actual fact, has many health benefits to it, so we should be making sure it’s a staple in our diet.

Margarine and man-made spreads have now proven to be a massive concern to our health because of the extensive processes it goes through to make the margarine and also the type of ingredients they use to make margarine is so far from a pure source, it is playing havoc on our overall health.

Margarines and spreads are industrialized, man-made products. They are using specific oils like canola, rice bran, cottonseed, grape seed, and other vegetable oils and putting them through laboratory, factory processes to turn them into a “food item”. But this process they are using, and the products they use for this is actually the same products they have used for many years to create soaps and candles….YUK! The vegetable oils they use for soaps, candles, and margarine, they’ve realized are oils that never go off if processed in the right way. That alone should send alarm bells to us that it’s not meant for our body!!

Let’s look at good, pure fats that are from nature instead. Butter, we know is basically just milk fat from a cow & plant-based oils like almond oil, olive oil, avocado oil, etc, are all-natural oils that are in their purest form and have simply been cold-pressed to squeeze out the amazing oil from the plant or fruit. This is why they are the type of oils we should be consuming regularly.

Another fantastic oil is coconut oil. Like butter, coconut oil is a medium and short-chain, saturated fat and these types of oils, believe it or not, won’t impact cholesterol or are associated with heart disease, like previously thought. Butter and coconut oil will not store as fat in the body, but be aware that grass-fed, organic butter, is going to be far better for your health than grain-fed butter! Big difference.

I know there has been a concern for people with butter and cholesterol, but the truth is, we actually need cholesterol for the body to function properly and saturated fats like butter, actually improve the quality of our cholesterol. The problem isn’t cholesterol itself, it’s the types of foods that wreak havoc on causing cholesterol to become unbalanced, which include processed, refined sugars and refined carbs like cakes, biscuits, deep-fried foods, bread, and high GI foods etc……not butter! Butter in moderation actually helps ward off major health issues.

1-2 tablespoons per day of butter will help reduce the risk of stroke, obesity, diabetes & heart disease!! How amazing is that!

So let’s look at some of the amazing health benefits of butter:
– Butter is a great source of vitamins and minerals, including Zinc, Iodine, Copper, manganese & Selenium, vitamin A,D,E & K2.
– Butter is a great source of Choline, which is an essential micro-nutrient needed for liver, brain function, brain development, nerves, muscles, energy levels, and metabolism & detoxification.
-Butter is a source of Butyric Acid, which is an acid that boosts gut healing and has anti-carcinogenic properties.
-Butter is a healthy source of fatty acid that supports the immune system, protects the stomach from intestinal infections, and boosts metabolism.
-Grass-fed butter also contains essential fatty acids omega 3 and 6, which we know are vital for good brain health.
