Healthy saturated fats and the benefits of saturated fats include providing an important vitamin that has gone "missing" in most people's diet these days.
Healthy butter like raw grass-fed cow butter contains a miraculous substance that has the ability to prevent tooth decay and calcification.
And the benefits of saturated fats are numerous, but it is important that you know what saturated fats are best for you to consume for your health.
You will find healthy saturated fats in organic coconuts, goat butter, and in other grass fed animal foods.
Raw grass-fed cow butter that comes from cows that eat only green grass contain a substance called the X-factor. This substance has also been referred to as Activator X and according to some people it is Vitamin K2.
Other healthy saturated fats that contain this substance are raw grass-fed milk, raw organ meats, and fish eggs.
A man by the name of Dr. Weston Price made this discovery years ago and he also discovered that cow butter with the X-factor especially when combined with cod liver oil was able to treat tooth decay, arthritis and osteoporosis.
He also developed a butter oil with the X-factor and found that cow butter from the Spring and Fall to be more potent.
Coconut oil fat is about 90% saturated and the rest is mainly monounsaturated fat.
Most of coconut's saturated fat is in the form of Medium Chained Triglycerides or MCTs
MCTs are a lot easier on your digestive system and your body. These MCTs are used for energy instead of being stored away as extra fat.
And one of the most impressive fatty acids found in coconuts is called Lauric Acid which is also found in mother's milk.
Your body will then convert Lauric acid into Monolaurin.
Monolaurin is very important for strengthening your immune system and fighting off pathogens.
Goat butter is another healthy butter that is pearly white in color and spreads like butter.
However, goat butter has a lower melting point than cow butter and is a "lighter" healthy butter compared to cow butter because of its Medium Chain Triglycerides or MCTs.
Like with coconut oil, MCTs provide antimicrobial activity and have an effect on your metabolism.
Goats have a somewhat different diet than cows and goat milk will contain higher amounts of calcium and copper than cow's milk.
Goat milk is also more digestible or less allergenic to certain people. However, it may have a more "goaty" taste - LOL.
