Uthukuli Cow butter

Amazing health benefits of using pure ghee.

Cow ghee helps in weight loss,it is said that the type of fat in cow ghee is the short chain fatty acid that helps to burn stubborn fat while regulating metabolism .This has been discussed by Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar in her book .

As cow ghee has  high smoking point it doesn’t burn easily ,and release free radicals.As Indian cooking involves lot of sauteing , cow ghee is better suited . Here I can vouch for Uthukuli Cow Ghee .

Cow ghee helps in balancing hormones. It is rich in Vitamin K 2 which builds hormones along with Vitamin A,D,E,and K .

Cow ghee helps in bone development esp for children , strengthens immunity .As kids most of us have grown up having  a tsp or two of  cow ghee with little dal and rice for bone development .

Cow ghee is good for the heart .Vitamin K2 found in cow ghee helps in preventing formation of calcium deposits and thus prevents formation of blockages in arteries.

It lowers bad cholesterol levels and increases good cholesterol levels, thus maintaining a healthy balance.

Thus Cow ghee is a better alternative to other forms of commercially sold butter as it has lower fat content.
