Crazy I know, but there is a health craze that has gone viral on the internet. This new idea is to stop putting milk and cream in your coffee and instead to add unsalted grass-fed butter and MCT oil. If you were like me the first time I heard this from a friend who checked it out over at bulletproof-coffee.com I thought WTF!
Well it turns out that there is a successful IT guy called Dave Asprey. Dave is known to his followers as the Bulletproof Executive. He is the one who invented this new way of preparing a cup of coffee in the morning which he trademarked as Bulletproof® Coffee.

One of the main ingredients are his Upgraded™ coffee beans. These coffee beans are meant to be mycotoxin free. This means there is no mold growing on them. Apparently a high percentage of coffee grown and distributed in the world can have mold growing on it which we then drink. The side-effects are said to be on our brain function, digestive tract and weight control.
Another component to making a successful cup of coffee in the morning is to add grass-fed butter from a company like Kerry Gold out of Ireland. The reason for this is to get short chain fatty acids. Especially Butyric acid which is where the term butter comes from interestingly enough.
The last special item to add are called medium chain triglycerides or MCT oil. MCT oil is highly refined coconut oil which has been isolated to two of the medium chain fatty acids. Yes there is a lot of fat in this coffee.
There you go you have been informed. I have tried it out for the last month and must say that I have never experienced such a fulfilling coffee sensation like this before. The fat makes you feel satisfied and my energy levels where high for much longer. I’d recommend you give Bulletproof® coffee a go at least once.
