Brewed coffee. Grass-fed butter. Oil.
Who would’ve thought these three would actually work well together? Apparently, Dave Asprey did after trying a tea made with yak-butter. And later, he tried to tinker on a beverage we already know and love. After a few mixes and taste tests here and there, he came up with his own version of our fave morning fix. Which he dubbed as the bulletproof coffee.
The ingredients only sound a little weird, but it sure tastes anything but. We actually think everyone who’s into coffee should at least try it. Especially as it promises a multitude of benefits for the morning people like you who want to stay sharp throughout the day.
In this piece we’ll lay only some of the beverage’s claim-to-fames and teach you how to fix your own bulletproof coffee at home. Who knows, this might end up being your cup of tea. Or coffee, for that matter.
What is bulletproof coffee, really?
This is not your ordinary dose of caffeine, coffee addicts!
With butter being one of its key components, it’s also widely known as the butter coffee. It’s a high-calorie and frothy beverage with added fats that was concocted to power up your mornings. You might think: “Well, it’s coffee. Isn’t that what it’s supposed to do?”
Yes, but what bulletproof coffee does is that it takes it up a notch higher. It helps you boost your energy and sharpen your cognitive function by giving you the right amounts of fats and calories, allowing you to avoid chomping down on carb-heavy breakfasts.
Why drink bulletproof coffee?
Separately, coffee, butter, and Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil have their own qualities and components that can help benefit your body. But mix them all together? Man, it might work wonders to your body.
Coffee, as we all know, doesn’t only taste good. It also provides antioxidants to your body which can help boost your metabolism and help you turn fats into energy you need for the day. Caffeine, on the other hand, keeps you, as the kids song goes, “alive, alert, awake, enthusiastic.”
To make the most of coffee, don’t brew with bad beans. Treat yourself with some expertly picked, sorted, and roasted beans - that makes a world of difference when it comes to taste and aroma.
Grass-fed butter, on the other hand, is the one responsible for the creamy consistency and frothy texture of your bulletproof coffee. It also contains the quality fats that your body needs to burn and transform to energy you need.
To make the most out of your coffee, take note that you should only use grass-fed butter. It’s a good source of important nutrients like Vitamin A, beta-carotene, and fatty acids. Don’t try to replace it with the industrial butter sticks or margarine. It just won’t work.
Lastly, your medium chain triglyceride (MCT) in the form of our Brain Octane Oil. It’s your not-so-secret magical potion that transforms an ordinary coffee to a bulletproof coffee. Brain Octane Oil is sourced from 100% sustainable coconut palms so you’re getting pure and highly ketogenic MCTs.
Combining the antioxidants and caffeine from the coffee, high calories and fats from the butter, and the pure MCT of Brain Octane Oil, what you get is a cup that gets you going in the morning.
It can help level up your cognitive function for the day so you can finally strike your backlogs and deadlines off your schedule!
Not only that. Bulletproof coffee also promises to quash your appetite and stabilize your hunger but still provide the calories you need to ignite your energy. So you can work your way and survive the day while feeling energized.
A cup of this is also perfect for those who are on a low-carb and high-fat diet! Because bulletproof coffee fits right in the ketogenic style of eating. This could also potentially help those who are practicing intermittent fasting. It doesn’t contain any carbs, and it can leave you feeling full and not hungry at all.
