Grass-fed butter contains hundreds of fatty acids and nearly five times more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than butter from grain-fed cows. CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat and dairy products. It is a known dietary supplement said to help people lose fat, maintain their weight, retain lean muscle mass and control Type 2 diabetes.
MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides and it’s one of the best, most bioavailable forms of energy. MCT oil is made from pure MCTs that are extracted from coconut oil. MCTs are an ideal energy source and known for their quick absorption. It is not coconut oil, but a coconut oil byproduct. (You can use just coconut oil if you can’t find MCT. OR we can purchase for you)
MCT oil increases weight loss. More and more studies are popping up showing that MCTs help you maintain satiety by leaving you feeling fuller longer[*]. They also boost your metabolism, leading to more fat loss and greater weight loss outcomes.
MCT oil also improves gut health and reduces inflammation. MCTs are natural antibiotics capable of fighting off harmful bacteria while preserving your gut’s good bacteria. This creates optimal pH balance for a healthy gut biome leading to a healthier overall gut environment and improved digestion.
MCT oil also sharpens your cognitive health. Studies show there is a strong connection between the brain and gut health[*]. Since your brain consists largely of fatty acids, you think more clearly when you provide your body with plenty of healthy fats for fuel.
Start your morning off with this perfect combination of caffeine and healthy fats. This low carb cup of magic is all you need, along with a balanced diet, to have your most productive day.
You may choose to use whatever coffee variety you prefer, but we recommend a single origin, light roast coffee. Light roast coffees are typically less bitter, brighter and better tasting while keeping the recipe unsweetened. They also contain the highest amount of caffeine.
There are many ways to brew a great tasting cup of coffee, including a standard automatic coffee maker, Aeropress, Chemex or French press.
