Butter is Good For You - The Unspoken Benefits to Show Non-Believers

Saturated Fat

Our brains are composed of 60% fat and the majority of the fat in the brain is saturated

Saturated fat acts as the insulation coating for your nervous system - when you lack this insulation you become more susceptible to external and internal stress

Specifically, the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerves in the brain and ensures their proper function is also largely made of saturated fat and cholesterol

Butyrate is the preferred fuel of the cells that line your colon

Butyrate is used for energy, especially by mucosal cells that line the wall of the colon - these cells get about 70% of their energy needs from butyrate

Butyrate nourishes intestinal cells that line the gut barrier and supports the assembly of tight junctions that seal gaps between gut barrier cells

Butyrate promotes brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a substance that increases the growth and differentiation of healthy neurons in the brain

Mitochondrial biogenesis is the process by which cells increase mitochondrial mass (was discovered that physical endurance training induced higher mitochondrial content levels, leading to greater glucose uptake by muscles)

Furthermore, butyrate prevented the age‐related increase in Gadd45a expression, a gene that mediates denervation‐induced muscle trophy that is directly regulated by HDAC4, and central nuclei in muscle fibers, suggesting butyrate prevents degeneration of muscle fibers



Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring trans fatty acid made from omega-6 essential fatty acids in the rumens or guts of pastured ruminants such as cows, goats, and sheep

Conjugated linoleic acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids containing both cis- and trans- bonds as well as double bonds
The CLA cis-9,trans-11 is mostly found in foods, whereas trans-10,cis-12 is found in supplements

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 activates two key proteins in the body:

Osteocalcin: once activated, it carries calcium and minerals into bones and teeth - it’s mostly responsible for the dental health and osteoporosis prevention

Matrix-GLA: The non-bone and teeth benefits of Vitamin K2 are mainly tied to the action of the matrix-GLA protein - this protein is activated only in the presence of Vitamin K2

= protein helps avoid calcification in the arteries - helps stop calcification in the veins as well since the calcium meant for the bones is ushered into the bones and does not accumulate in veins and arteries

Vitamin K also helps prevent excess calcium in the brain, and excess dysregulated calcium in the brain accounts for some of the damage from Alzheimers

Animals grazing on vitamin K-rich cereal grasses - especially wheatgrass and alfalfa in a lush green state of growth - produce fat with the highest amounts of Activator X

Vitamin K2 levels will not be high in butter from grain-fed cows raised in confinement feedlots


Butter also has a high level of glycosphingolipids within it, so adding butter to your diet can increase your defenses in your stomach and digestive tracts

Glycosphingolipids are a special type of fatty acid that can protect your body against a number of gastrointestinal issues and conditions

They help create mucus layers along the membrane, making it more difficult for bacterial infections to bind to functioning receptors
