Why You Should Put Butter in Your Coffee: The Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

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 you’d be like me: I thought WTF!I I heard this from a friend who checked it out Bulletproof® Coffee at http://ilovebuttercoffee.com/bulletproof-coffee-recipe/

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 well. He has started a whole line of products called Upgraded™ Self. They are mainly paleo diet type things mixed in with high tech gadgets for modern men.

Read my review of upgraded coffee, grassfed butter and upgraded MCT oilOne 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 this new type of high fat coffee a go at least once.

It is a Sign: You Should See a Chiropractor

Have you ever woken up in terrible pain all over your back and wondered why me, why now. It probably happens at a time when you are trying to get healthy, lose some excess weight and improve your life and wellbeing. Backache will get us all at some stage. Being in this type of situation is probably a sign that you need to see a professional for a thorough assessment to see what is wrong with your back.

This is when a doctor of Chiropractic could be the best person to consult with on this irritating matter of back pain at the wrong time in your life.


Chiropractors are a type of back doctor who uses natural techniques and alternative methods to mainstream medicine in order to restore correct mechanical function in your spine. They focus on the bones, muscles and nerves in your body and how they are all related. A major treatment tool most patients receive is spinal manipulation or what is affectionately termed, an adjustment.
