Coffee lovers rejoice, there is a new trend in the caffeine world, called Bulletproof Coffee, also known as “crack coffee.” You may have heard the buzz around this new way of consuming your coffee, but do you even know what it means??
Bulletproof coffee is “a high-performance drink that has a massive impact on your energy and cognitive function” – BulletProof. Are you intrigued? Learn what it does and how to make your own!
What is Bulletproof Coffee
Bulletproof coffee is a combination of three key ingredients that work together to create the benefits you need for more productivity and energy. According to Bulletproof, it’s all about the coffee beans, they should be certified clean beans. Then you have to include the right type of Brain Octane Oil, Finally, add that grass-fed ghee.
What are the benefits?
Brain Octane is distilled from 100% coconut oil and is a source of energy from fat, instead of sugar that helps your body burn fat. It also raises the ketones in your body, which are molecules that fuel the brain.
This fat burning energy can keep you going for hours without the crash that coffee gives you. It also suppresses your hunger, speeds up your metabolism, decreases the fat your body stores, and increases your brain’s functions.
Grass-fed ghee is butterfat that comes from grass-fed cows. Sounds super interesting with coffee, I know. But this is what actually gives the coffee that creamy consistency, you don’t need any milk or creamers! It’s also great for people who are lactose intolerant because there is no Lactaid! Just make sure to get unsalted ghee or grass-fed butter. The fats from the oil and butter help sustain your energy throughout the day, balance your hormones, and boost your cognitive functions.
How do I make it?!
Make sure to do your research and get the right type of oil. The type you want is composed from a specific MCT oil, and not all are created the same. So using just some regular coconut oil and regular butter won’t work. Brain Octane is 4 x more effective at raising your ketones than regular coconut oil, and good quality grass-fed butter contains “omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, CLA (a fatty acid with powerful fat-loss benefits), and antioxidants.”
