8 amazing benefits of cow ghee

Published by Manjula on

Are you looking for a superfood that is both delicious and healthy? Then cow ghee is for you. I love love, love ghee. Since my childhood, my granny used to serve hot rice, plain dal (mudda Pappu), and Ghee. I just love the smell, taste, and everything about Ghee. Every single day, our granny used to give us Ghee. Ghee is a good fat that is essential for the healthy functioning of the body. In this blog, I will share with you the many benefits of Ghee and various ways you can use it in daily life. Let’s get started.

My journey with Ghee:

After my college, when I had an overweight problem, I started listening around, and I heard things like – Ghee is fat, Ghee makes you fat. I did not know those days that you need to consume good fats to actually burn the fat. I wish I had known. Actually, my granny told me, but would I listen? No.

My granny had a lot of wisdom. My life would have been easier if I just quietly listened to my granny. Anyway, Ghee was given to us since childhood. We had it on a regular basis. Later on, I thought it is fat, and I stopped consuming it.

I restarted consuming Ghee when I realized its benefits. When I started eating it, not only did I not put on weight, but strangely I was knocking off my weight even faster. And the thing is, Ghee has got such good properties. It got good fats. When you have good fats, your body does not ask for a lot of food. These good fats lie in your stomach, and you are not always hungry. Your sugars are stabilized.

There was a point in my life when I was eating only raw foods. I was hungry all the time. It was only later when I found the balance, and I included good fats. After adding good fats like Ghee into my diet, I was very comfortable. I was not hungry like before. Strangely, my concentration improved. I heard people saying Ghee is brain food. But I truly understood it when I consumed it.

I was more focused. My thoughts were flowing in alignment with whatever I wanted to create. I have experienced this aspect of Ghee. It is very easy on the tummy. Many people think Ghee is heavy. When you get the good Ghee, it is quite wonderful. I don’t know how Ghee from hybrid cows and other variants work. But when you get a good quality A2 cow ghee, it is so easy on your stomach and easily digestible.

How I consume Ghee:

I consume Ghee in various forms. I put it on my food. I make a smoothie that tastes delicious. To make the smoothie, I blend Ghee, coconut oil, and 1 date or a couple of dates if I am in the mood for a sweet treat. It is such a delicious and lovely smoothie. I just drink it up. I feel so nourished and energized after that. I can get to my work without thinking about what I should eat or experiencing hunger pangs. Ghee stabilizes my mood.

I use it for cooking. I use a lot of it for cooking because of its higher smoke point. I make my stir fry with Ghee. But to be honest, I am not a fan of stir fry, but if I want to make it for kids, I will do it in Ghee. I completely avoid deep frying.

There are so many benefits of adding Ghee into my routine. I could see a great change in my skin, digestion, energy levels. I keep thinking of my granny so many times. How does she know all these things? She knew many things such a long time back.

These are some benefits of Ghee.

Some ways to use Ghee in your daily life:

  1. Add a spoon of Ghee to your meal.
  2. Add it generously to your parathas, khichdi, etc.
  3. Use Ghee for tempering curries and dals.
  4. Add it to your sweets.

  6. Ghee is also great to apply to your skin. You can massage your skin with Ghee for that soft skin.

An important note about Ghee:

Ghee is beneficial, but it is beneficial only if we get it from the right source. If we consume Ghee which is adulterated, it does not bring any benefits. So many times, I tried that Ghee, this Ghee, and various other types. I was not happy. Most of the time, Ghee available in the market comes with a rancid smell. Sometimes, we see even fungus and mold. It is better not to eat Ghee than eating substandard Ghee mixed with dalda. Ghee is good for you only when it is fresh and nicely sourced.

Also, cow ghee is more beneficial than buffalo ghee. To make it easy for you to get pure cow ghee, Launched two variants of Ghee on my website – Organic Cow Ghee and Organic A2 Cow Ghee.

Why should you buy our Ghee?

  1. Our Ghee is Prepared with the traditional Indian Vedic Bilona method.
  2. Ghee is made in an Internationally certified State of Art Plant with Highest Quality Standards.
  3. Our cows are left to free gaze on grass fields. They are not fed plastic or harmful substances.
  4. Ghee is free from chemicals, parabens, gluten.
  5. Ghee is prepared from the milk of pure-bred Indian cows. For A2 Ghee, we take the milk from Gujrati Gir cows.

So, choose pure cow ghee and generously add it to your food to reap various health benefits. Ghee is an important part of the rich Indian heritage for centuries. Let’s bring it back to our kitchens and our lifestyle. You can buy pure cow ghee here.
