Did you know these facts about ghee?
There are numerous ingredients in our kitchen that add flavour and provide nutrition. But, very few such foods are unique and versatile in their nutrients and uses, and they are called as ‘Superfoods’. They are accompanied by various health benefits, medicinal and above all, provide the much-needed balance required by the human body to stay fit and healthy. Pure desi cow ghee, made from A2 cow milk, surely deserves the highest spot in the list of Superfoods.
Ghee is widely used and in almost everything in Indian households. Being creatures of habit, we have never paid much attention to the health benefits it brings and the limitless uses of these magical ingredients. If you’re one of them, it is not too late.
Here are some facts about ghee you probably didn’t know:
Pure desi ghee contains the rare Omega-3
According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health Search database, dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids has declined by 80% in the past 100 years. The lack of Omega-3 is responsible for decreasing the working capacity of a human heart, causing cardiac imbalance and adding in higher blood pressure and various heart problems. Just a tablespoon of cow ghee contains as much as 45 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids. Daily intake of ghee is known to have beneficial effects on arrhythmias, inflammation, atherosclerosis, and thrombosis while improving lower blood pressure, endothelial function, and significantly lowers triglycerides.
Pure desi ghee is eye-friendly
Most eye problems occur due to the lack of Vitamin A in the human body as its deficiency causes damage to the retina/cornea of the eye and leads to blurred vision. Our body converts a pigment called beta-carotene into Vitamin A, which is present in abundance in desi A2 cow ghee. If you are regularly complementing your foods with pure desi ghee, it is unlikely that you will suffer from an eye problem.
Ghee aids in Digestion
Do you experience acidity after eating and wonder, why? Acidity or inflammation occurs due to the lack of a short-chain fatty acid called butyric acid. Butyric acid is connected to the human body by an immune response that helps in lowering acidity and inflammation. A2 Ghee also increases the simulation of stomach acid secretion which helps in the proper digestion of food.
Ghee is beneficial for the skin
Pure desi ghee is rich in antioxidants and makes up for a wonderful agent to make our sensory organs more effective and responsive to our body’s needs. You can apply ghee on burns, use it as a massage oil for therapeutic results or even as a moisturizer. Ghee works wonders in removing dark circles and is considered a natural agent for slowing down the aging process of the skin.
As you can see, desi cow ghee has never-ending benefits that aid the human body to health in every way possible. But, for the ghee to do what it does best, it must be in the unadulterated, purest form. Amrutam's desi cow ghee is explicitly made from A2 cow milk which is expressly procured from Indian cow breeds. Made from the ancient valona process, it is rich in Vitamins, proteins and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Head over to our shop page to buy yourself the purest, chemical-free jar of health.
