Ghee is a healthy fat, which is lactose free, full of short and medium chain fatty acids such as Butyric acid and is a source of fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K. It contains the antioxidant CLA, and has a high tolerance to heat, both of which prevent the formation of free radicals that damage DNA and can cause cancer. It is free of harmful trans-fatty acids that contribute to obesity and has the ideal ratio between Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fats.
Some of the many benefits of ghee proven by modern science are the balancing of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, stimulation of digestive enzymes, weight loss, improvement of absorption of nutrients, lubrication of joints, reduction of inflammation, softening of hardened tissue and extraction of toxins from the body’s cells.
