Why I became a ”Gheegan”
A couple of the most frequently asked questions about our pantry items “what is ghee” and “how/why should I use it” so let’s talk about that for a minute. Ghee is a class of clarified butter that originated in ancient India and is commonly used in South Asian, Iranian and Arabic cuisines, traditional medicine and religious ceremony. Ghee is prepared by simmering butter and removing the residue that has separated from the milk solids. It tastes amazing, rich and delicious it can be used in place of butter= try it on your steamed veggies sprinkled with hemp seeds. YUM! My favorite is ghee blended into my coffee to replace dairy creamer. I’m hooked for life.
Now for the best part…the health benefits of ghee:
High in Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Because ghee- if it is from grassfed cows – is high in Omega 3’s it protects against inflammation and heart disease
Promotes Healthy Weight
Ingesting ghee helps pull fat soluble toxins from your cells and stimulates your fat metabolism resulting in your body burning its own fat for fuel
Supports Gut Health
Ghee creates beneficial bacteria in our gut and it also contains butyric acid, which helps keep the lining of the gut wall strong. This aids in healing and prevention of leaky gut syndrome
Fat Soluble Vitamin Heaven
Vitamin E- most adults are deficient in this. It’s important as it is a potent antioxidant and immune system booster. Vitamin E is also important for eye health and has cancer fighting properties.
Vitamin A- Important for healthy vision, immune function, and proper cell growth.
Vitamin K- Prevents blood clotting, protects from heart disease, ensures healthy skin, forms strong bones, and promotes brain function. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Vitamin D- Plays a key role in almost all our physiological functions. It is an immune system regulator so it is vital to our health. Vitamin D aids in the prevention of osteoporosis, many types of cancer, depression, diabetes and obesity.
