Why Should You Add “Ghee” To Your Diet ?

By Staff Feministaa in Health & Nutrition 20/01/2016

When you stare at your daily meal, one thing which you malice the most is Ghee, the clarified butter, which is found in huge portions of your daily meals, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. If it just leads to obesity, then why have it at all ?

 

We bring out to you 5 hidden benefits about ghee, which you should know because sometimes the food you curse the most turns out to be a mandatory health requirement.

 

Protects you from diseases

 

Ghee has a high content of conjugated linoleic acid which helps in protecting your body from diseases. Having a minimum amount of ghee is required in order to prevent diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart problems, as it contains Omega-3 fatty acid.

 

It is an angel in disguise !

 

You will be surprised to know that Ghee helps in losing weight as it contains healthy fats similar to those present in coconut and sesame oil. It also helps in maintaining lower cholesterol level.

 

Prevents Dryness and Inflammation

 

In winters, one of the most recurring problems we face is dry skin and chapped lips. In order to overcome this irritation, all you need to apply is small amount of ghee over the dry patches instead of applying any cosmetics or fancy creams. Ghee can be used to soothe burnt skin and prevents inflammation. It can also improve hair growth when applied on the scalp.

 

Storehouse of many vitamins

 

Ghee is rich in fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, D , E and K. Just a tablespoon of ghee can provide approximately 15 per cent of nutrients which you require on a daily basis. Apart from this, it also contains gastric acids which help in boosting the immunity system of the body. Ghee also acts as a lubricant for the joints and the tissues. It absorbs the nutrients present in the everyday delicious Indian food and makes sure that it reaches the right part of the body.

 

Boosts up your energy level

 

Ghee contains medium chain fatty acids which the liver can absorb directly and burn immediately, it then gets converted into a good source of energy, providing a buffer reserve of  energy to your body.

 

You must be amazed to see the number of benefits which ghee provides. Stop blaming “Ghee” for all your weight gain issues.
