Amazing Benefits of Ghee

“As long as you live, live happily
Beg, borrow or steal, but relish ghee” – An ancient Carvak saying

Relish ghee. Now that’s a philosophy to live by! Why did the ancients value ghee so much? What’s so great about it anyway? Consider this my ode to ghee.

  • Great for Cooking and Taste

Ghee has a high smoking point (250 °C 482 °F) and so it does not break into harmful free radicals soon as other oils do.Moreover, ghee does not spoil easily so there’s no need to keep it in the refrigerator.

  • Buttery taste without any dairy allergies

Ghee does not contain casein and whey protein so even lactose intolerant people can consume it without any fear. This is a boon as Lactose intolerenace is quite prevelent in India.

  • Increases your resistance to seasonal allergies and common ailments

While ghee is rich in healthy fat soluble vitamin A, D, E and K, it is also rich in antioxidants. It increases the body’s resistance to various infections and diseases by boosting the immune system.

  • Stimulates the digestive system

Ghee stimulates the secretion of stomach acids to aid in digestion while other fats and oils can slow down the body’s digestive process and sit heavy in the stomach.

  • Positive Food

Within Ayurveda, ghee is considered one of the most satvic foods. Satvic foods promote positivity, growth and expansion of consciousness.

  • Boosts Fertility

An optimal fertility diet should contain good quality protein sources and good fats. Pure ghee is the best form of fat. It increases the quality and quantity of semen.

  • Improves Skin

It rejuvenates the skin from inside and increases its glow.

In metabolic balance we say”no fear of fat”. An individual is allowed 3-6 tablespoons of oil/ fat with Ghee being recommended as one of the healthy fat options. Ghee contains mainly short and medium chain saturated fatty acids which improve digestion and strengthens the immune system. It also has  anti–inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
