  • Comes from grass-fed, pasture-raised, happy cows.
  • Is organic and free of pesticide, antibiotic and hormone soil residues.
  • Is cooked in small batches over an open flame according to Ayurvedic standards.

Bottle Contains: 16 Servings, 1 tbsp. each (NET 8 fl oz / 236.6ml)
Ingredients: Organic Butter (Milk), Cultures
Does not contain: Lactose, Whey, Casein, Gluten, Salt, Trans Fatty Acids, GMOs, Bovine Hormones
Certified Organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF)

Why Ghee?
Ghee is one of the crown jewels of Ayurvedic medicine. It is a delicate, aromatic saturated fat that is solid at room temperature and melts into a liquid as it warms. Ghee is made by boiling off the milk solids (casein, whey, and lactose) from unsalted butter, leaving a very unique blend of heart-healthy short, medium and long fatty acids.

Worried About Saturated Fat?
Sadly, much of the science telling us for the past 30 years that saturated fats were bad for us was flawed. Cholesterol turns out to be good for us in the general "total cholesterol" sense. It is the size of both the good (HDLs) and bad (LDLs) particles that determines cardiovascular risk. Study after study has now negated any association between healthy saturated fats, such as ghee, and cardiovascular issues.1

The World’s Best Cooking Oil
With one of the highest flash points (485 degrees Fahrenheit) of any cooking oil, the creation of free radicals and oxidized molecules from high-temperature cooking is prevented.

While we think of ghee as a food, according to Ayurveda it was a powerful medicine. Ghee is also loaded with heart, brain and skin-healthy Omega-3 and Omega-9 essential fatty acids, along with all the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, minerals and at least nine phenolic antioxidants.

The Ghee-Producing Microbe
Butter got its name from a fatty acid called butyric acid, and ghee, which is concentrated butter, is the highest known food source of butyric acid. Butyric acid is the primary fuel for the cells of the colon, boosts immunity, feeds the good microbes and much more.

As is turns out, the body loves ghee so much that the microbes in our intestinal tracts make their own! Scientists have discovered a microbe that actually produces ghee or butyric acid in the gut. This microbe, Clostridium butyricum has been used in Asia as a probiotic since the 1940s. It lives naturally in the small and large intestine of healthy folks. Those without great digestion were found to have less butyric acid production in the gut.2

Benefits of the butyric acid production from Clostridium butyricum4:

  • Helps digestion, maintains the integrity of the gastrointestinal mucosa.
  • Blocks the growth of bad bacteria in the gut.
  • Interferes with the growth of highly toxic bacteria.
  • Helps the growth of beneficial bacteria like Bifidobacterium.
  • Helps loose bowel function and regulates abnormal bowel movements.
  • Helps adjust water and electrolyte concentration of the intestinal tract.

The Science of Ghee in Ayurvedic Detox
Environmental toxins, such as pesticides, preservatives, heavy metals and industrial toxicants, are all fat-soluble or "lipophilic" (lipo = fat, philic = like). Such lipophilic toxins have been associated with hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several types of cancer, and other diseases.5,6

Ayurveda detoxifies these fat-soluble toxins by using a “lipophilic-mediated” detoxification procedure, where ghee is ingested to pull (detox) or chelate fat-soluble toxins from the body.

Based on the Ayurvedic approach of using ingested fats to detoxify environmental toxins, there have been studies showing impressive results. In one study with 88 subjects, 48 of them underwent a 7-day detox of ingesting ghee while on a no fat, meat or dairy diet. The researchers measured 9 different environmental PCB toxins and 8 pesticide toxins. They saw a decrease in 46% of the PCBs measured and a 56% of the pesticides measured.3,4 These results suggest that lipophilic-mediated detoxification may be effective in reducing body burdens of fat-soluble toxicants.5,6
