Desi Ghee is known to be one of the most easily digestible dairy fat. It helps in proper digestion, preventing constipation and detoxification. Ghee contains butyric acid which nourishes the cells of the intestines. This acid also helps in reducing inflammation and improving the digestive system. Unlike butter or oil, Ghee fastens the process of digestion.
The butyric acid which helps in digestion also helps to burn stubborn body fat thereby enhancing metabolism. Many doctors recommend desi ghee instead of butter for people with cholesterol.
Good for Immunity
Full of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E AND K, Desi Ghee helps in strengthening immunity. These vitamins play a major role in the functioning of the heart, brain and also bone development.
As per studies, butyrate enemas and oral butyrate supplements (contents in ghee) are beneficial to treat diseases which can cause inflammation in the bowels. A few examples are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Ghee is rich in Conjugated linoleic acid, provided it is prepared from the milk of cows that are naturally grass-fed. Any other ghee which might have adulteration will not help.
Mostly suitable for lactose intolerant
Even if you are lactose intolerant or casein intolerant, you can consume desi cow ghee without any worry. Since ghee is made from makkhan / loni, it does not have the milk solids or other impurities in it which other dairy products generally have. Also, casein (protein) is present in a really small amount in the desi ghee.
Source of healthy fats
Our body needs some fats to assist the brain, nerves and skin health. These healthy fats are also vital for building cell membranes and strengthening them. If the ghee has any additives or adulteration like hydrogenated oils, trans-fats or oxidized cholesterol, it won’t benefit your body the way pure desi cow ghee would.
