Of all the oils human can eat, the best is ghee - चरकसंहिता
Ghee has several benefits, some of which are listed below:
Across the world, it is estimated that around 42 million people suffer from cancer, just like metastasis the disease has started to spread rapidly. To prevent this, a healthy diet is a necessity as our lifestyle today is highly prone to cancer. ‘Ghee’ made by curd churning bilona process has a good amount of CLA, which reduces the growth of cancerous cells.
Acts as Superfood
In our fast paced lifestyle, we eat any junk which is easily accessible to satisfy our taste buds and time demands. With this lifestyle desi ghee is an elixir because it acts as an energy booster, helping us get through our daily life without fatigue. People who requires high energy (like athletes) are prescribed ghee as an essential part of their diet. Desi ghee contains a wide spectrum of medium chain fatty acids which are processed by the liver to release energy.
Enhances Skin Charm
Air pollution damages our skin everyday and we use harmful chemicals such as sunscreen, moisturisers to protect it from external environment, causing it more harm.
In times when they were no skin conditioners or moisturisers, our elders use to rely on ghee for skin care as it makes skin soft along with brightening the skin. People who eat ghee regularly and smear it on their skin look much younger than their contemporaries without least or zero side-effects as it is totally natural.
Enhances Heart Metabolism
Although they say that fat is not good for health. Yet there are few kinds of fat which is actually a necessity for our body. Bilona Ghee has a rich variety of fats which are actually good for the heart. Desi ghee is made from the milk of free-ranging cows which is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids reduce bad cholesterol in the blood while boosting good cholesterol which further improves cardiac health.
Boosts Bone Growth and Repair.
The intake of bilona ghee not only increases bone strength but also enhances immunity and stamina. Ghee is also a good source of calcium which is an essential for bone growth whose deficiency may result in osteoporosis especially in women. It help in development of brain by improving wisdom, memory and intellect.
Eliminates Toxins from the Body
There are two kinds of toxins found in body- water-soluble and oil-soluble. The water soluble toxins are easily ejected from our body on a daily basis as we secrete waste fluid by sweating and urination. However, oil soluble toxins secretion is a little difficult and very slow. Cow ghee made by bilona process fastens the process of oil toxins secretion and burns the fat readily.
Pro tip: Consume a tablespoon ghee each day on empty stomach and see a natural weight loss.
