Salted Ghee vs. Unsalted & other unnecessary forms..
There are many versions of ghee on the market, a popular flavor being pink Himalayan sea salt or added salt. Adding ghee in salt is unnecessary and actually kills all the good bacteria in ghee. The taste will be “enhanced” but has no ghee benefit. Salt has been used for years to kill bacteria in the mouth, & on meats. Ghee butter is the most simplest form of food it does not need to be in any other form besides in a jar! ghee mixed with natural ingredients is beneficial, ghee mixed with other oils is very unnecessary & not healthy.
What are “bulletproof” shots used for?
Bulletproof shots date back centuries to Northern India. The weather being extremely cold and brutal, shots of ghee were taken straight or added to beverages to keep people full longer, better focus, and get vitamins & antioxidants. Today there is so much on the market that can be easily found in one spoon of ghee. Simple is best and natural is healthier, a spoon of ghee is both!

Coconut Oil vs. Grass Fed Ghee
Coconut oil is a fairly new oil in the states, it was never really used until a couple of years ago. Coconut oil is a very acquired taste, it has all of the same benefits of ghee but people also opt for coconut oil due to being vegetarian/vegan. Ghee has the same amazing benefits of its sister oil but is more used for cooking because of its buttery taste and rich aroma. Both oils are highly recommended and good for heart and overall health. Coconut oil is mainly used in places like India more so for topical use and to promote healthy hair, ghee is more for cooking use and enhances flavors in cooking. There is no “miracle” oil, an oil is an oil and should always be eaten in moderation & be part of an overall healthy diet.
