Health-Conscious Coffee Drinkers Are Ditching the Cream and Sugar in Favor of Butter

Photo: Rumble/internetroiIf you’re one of the millions of Americans who drink coffee in the morning, you probably either drink it black or add milk, cream, or sugar to it. However, there’s one dairy product we’ll bet you’ve never considered topping off your cup of joe with, and it’s butter. But you may be surprised to learn that this unusual addition is preferred by many coffee drinkers, both for its taste and its purported health benefits.Before you go plopping a dollop of any old kind of butter in your coffee though, you need to know what type of butter will actually give you the results you’re looking for. In many parts of the world, dairy cows are fed soy or corn feed because of how cheaply they can be produced and the fact that they’re available even in the winter in colder climates. Grass-fed cows, however, produce more natural and healthier dairy products for humans to consume. So unsalted grass-fed butter is what you’re going to want in your coffee for maximum benefits.

Sadly, cows are not able to fully digest corn and soy, and that affects the fat quality of the meat and milk they produce for human consumption. Grass-fed cows, on the other hand, have an easier time digesting their food, and we, in turn, reap the benefits when we consume grass-fed dairy products.The healthier fats produced by grass-fed cows provide us with important nutrients that our bodies need, such as vitamin K and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Consuming this healthier version of our dairy products helps reduce cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.But that’s not where the benefits of butter end. Healthy fats are also significant brain boosters, and they improve our hormonal health and cellular health. These health benefits lead to better cognitive function and a feeling of increased energy and alertness.

Just add a tablespoon (or however much you desire) of grass-fed butter to your coffee each day to add some essential nutrients to your diet without all the carbs and sugar that some other coffee additives contain. The creamy taste will leave your tastebuds happy, and the healthy fats will help fuel your body for an activity-filled day.Watch the video below to learn how to make your morning coffee not only delicious but also a little bit healthier!
