The Beneficial Reality To Easy Weight-Loss With Ghee 

When trying to lose weight, most of us go the automatic route of cutting fat from our diets and the first things to come off of our shopping lists are butter, oils and ghee. If this sounds like a familiar scenario in your life, read on…

What if the exact opposite were true, today we are focusing specifically on Ghee for weight-loss, the gold of Ayurvedic health and one of the most staple ingredients in an Ayurvedic lifestyle.

Not only does Ghee have a plethora of health benefits, but it can be a highly useful tool in promoting weight loss. The main reason for this is Ghee is not a usual fat as thought of in western circles.

Ghee’s Makeup

The fat composition of Ghee is what makes it so unusual and wonderfully beneficial, and plays a pivotal role in making Ghee such a nutritious source.

While Ghee is predominant in Indian dishes, it is also available in the western world and has gained a following with people who adhere to a ketogenic lifestyle, wear eating fat to burn fat is the modus operandi.

Ghee is made up of 99 % fat and 1 % moisture with an element of fat-soluble nutrients and vitamins. The splendid thing about Ghee is since it is prepared with saturated fat, it won’t spoil if kept at room temperature.

When a batch of churred butter is clarified with heat, the end product is Ghee, and it can be made from various kinds of milk including goat, sheep and buffalo, although traditionally Ghee is made from cows milk.

Ghee that is made at home on a low scale level is called desi ghee and keeps better because of the rendering process which creates phospholipids, which are absent when Ghee is commercially produced.

Many studies have been conducted on Ghee to understand the composition of its fatty acids and benefits of weight-loss.

Overall it has been found that Ghee is an excellent source of DHA  (docosahexaenoic acid). DHA is one of the most beneficial and essential fatty acids and is a resource that the human body cannot produce naturally, meaning it has to be sourced from our diet. 

Other sources of DHA include walnuts, fish oils and flaxseeds, however, non of them deliver the same nutritional punch as desi Ghee.

The Beneficial Reality To Easy Weight-Loss With Ghee

Under Ayurvedic knowledge, Ghee contributes heavily to and protects the body from various diseases while increasing longevity, it also lubricates joints, bone density and improves the overall absorption of fat-soluble nutrients.

When used in dietary measures, it‘s advisable to take up to two small level teaspoons daily, this portion size of Ghee helps with weight loss because of its richness in amino acids and its ability to help shrink a gut size by reducing fat cells.

Because ghee is rich in omega 3 fats (DHA) and omega 6 (CLA), it is hugely beneficial to weight-loss and is known to build and increase in lean muscle mass while reducing overall fat content. Industry experts have also found that ghee helps in mobilizing our fat cells to be burnt as an energy resource.

Along with its Omega fats Ghee also is a rich source of Butyric acid and contains vitamins A, K, and D, all of which help our immune system to maintain healthy hair, strengthen bone density and improve eyesight. Overall Ghee is a huge immune system strengthener and toxin flusher.

That being said anything in excess is bad, and the same can be said for Ghee, however, consumed in moderation daily.

While yes, ghee has many nutritional benefits and can help you in weight loss, but anything in excess is bad and same goes for ghee. It should be consumed in moderation as it is high in saturated fats. It’s okay to consume one-two tablespoons of ghee every day, to yield these maximum health benefits.
