Facts About Grass-Fed Butter

Is grass-fed butter better than standard butter from grain-fed cows?

I found some facts on Dr. Axe blog.  

"Grass-fed butter nutrition is notably higher in many nutrients than butter from cows that are fed grain-based diets. Studies have shown that milk from grass-fed cows is significantly richer in fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. This means that the butter made from the milk of grass-fed cows is also higher in all of this good stuff.

Science has also shown that milk (and therefore butter) from grass-fed cows is higher in conjugated linoleic acid - a seriously healthy immune booster and disease fighter. Overall, butter from grass-fed cows is simply a much healthier choice than standard butter."

Enjoy your grass-fed butter! I love it in my Bulletproof Coffee. Here is my favorite recipe. 

Bulletproof Coffee

1 cup hot coffee freshly brewed
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp MCT oil or coconut oil

4 tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately.
