What is Bulletproof Coffee?

Bulletproof Coffee Photo source: Bite Size Wellness Developed after a trip to Tibet, this brew ” Bulletproof Coffee ” is simple and claims to boost brain power, increase mental clarity and hike up energy levels. The coffee is made from 3 ingredients: Butter of grass-fed cows ' milk, medium chain triglyceride oil and organic coffee beans.

Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

Ingredients:

2 tbs Unsalted grass-fed butter 1-2 tbs of MCT oil 2 cups of fresh brewed coffee with low-toxin beans

Steps:

1.) Make coffee: Brew your coffee as you normally do. 2.) Preheat blender: Boil extra water and pour it into a blender while your coffee brews to preheat the blender. 3.) Froth: Empty hot water from the now pre-heated blender and add the brewed coffee, butter, and MCT oil. Blend until there is a thick layer of foam on top like a latte. 4.) Add sweetness (optional): Add cinnamon, vanilla or even dark chocolate

Some of the hype around this new coffee focuses on the medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). Facts from the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition and the Center for Science in the Public Interest state that medium chain triglycerides are digested more quickly than other fats and are less likely to get stored in fatty tissue. MCTs have even been shown to enhance fat burning and weight loss, but it is important to note that this is all still up for debate in other literature. In addition, the butter used in this brew provides butyric acid, which is a short-chain fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties and more vitamins including A, D and K2.

Sounds pretty spectacular, right? While this drink is a combination of caffeine and fats, fats are only a portion of a balanced meal, and Bulletproof® Coffee is certainly not a complete breakfast. With one mug packing in close to 450 calories ” over 100% of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat ” and no protein or fiber, it can fill you up without providing essential nutrients that your body needs. According to Journal of Internal Medicine and the New York Obesity Research Center, MCTs may regulate cholesterol but too much saturated fat increases risk factors for heart related diseases.

It 's fair to say that while you may enjoy this morning cup of joe, keep in mind of its contents, and sip in moderation. Have you tried Bulletproof Coffee? Do you like it? We 'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
