Healthy saturated fats can provide an important vitamin that has gone "missing" in most people's diet these days.
"People of the past obtained a substance that modern generations do not have" - Weston A. Price.
Healthy butter like grass-fed cow butter contains a miraculous
substance that has the ability to prevent tooth decay and calcification in your cardiovascular system.
Other healthy saturated fats will contain MCTs and lauric acid which helps to strengthen your immune system.
The benefits of saturated fats are quite numerous and it's important that
you consume an adequate amount of healthy saturated fats for your health.
Raw grass fed butter that comes from dairy cows that eat only green grass contain a substance called the X-factor.
The X-factor is a fat soluble nutrient that industrialized cultures seem to have unfortunately removed from their diets.
This substance has also been referred to as Activator X and according to recent discoveries - it is Vitamin K2.
A Cleveland dentist whose name was Dr. Weston A. Price made this discovery decades ago.
that grass fed butter with the X-factor (especially when combined with cod
liver oil) was able to treat tooth decay, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
By the way, the X-factor also helps to prevent problems like hardening of your arteries, inflammation, and the calcification of your pineal gland.
Dr. Price was the first to develop a butter oil with the X-factor. He's also the one that discovered grass fed butter from the Spring and Fall to be more potent.
The X-Factor now known as vitamin K2 acts in synergy with vitamins A and D which command cells in your body to make proteins. It's vitamin K2 that will bring these proteins to life!
Researchers have finally began to understand that vitamin K2 is required for two crucial processes......
The delivery of calcium to the bones for appropriate deposition and the removal of excess minerals from the soft tissues to prevent calcification in places like your arteries.
Vitamin K2 helps to better assimilate important body
building minerals like calcium. Actually, vitamin K2 is a potent health
Why You Need the X-Factor or Vitamin K2:
- Assists with Blood Clotting
- Protects Your Cardiovascular System
- Inhibits Arterial Calcification
- Reduces Risk of Kidney Stones

Please be aware that blood thinners like Warfarin will target vitamins K1 and K2. And this will eventually lead to a vitamin K2 deficiency.
If you or a loved one is taking this med, please have the doctor prescribe a blood thinner that does not block vitamin K.
Foods that Contain
the X-Factor or Vitamin K2
Other healthy saturated fats that contain this magical substance are found in the butterfat of mammalian milk, the fat of grass fed animals, grass fed organ meats, grass fed bone marrow, pastured egg yolks, fish eggs, and in shellfish.
Besides grass fed butter (preferably raw), you will find vitamin K2 in duck fat, grass fed beef tallow, grass fed ghee, grass fed butter oil, and in grass fed cream.
Traditionally fermented foods like natto, kimchi, and sauerkraut will provide a bacteria synthesized form of vitamin K2.
The amount of vitamin K2 in cheese will vary depending on what cheese
cultures were used. The highest amount would probably be
in grass fed Gouda and grass fed Jarlsberg cheese. A good amount of K2 is found in grass fed blue cheese.
The amount of the X-factor will depend on the yellow to orange color of the fat found in the nutrient dense food.
Goat butter is made from goat milk. It's another healthy saturated fat that is pearly white in color that spreads like butter.
However, goat butter has a lower melting point than cow butter.
It's a "lighter" butter compared to cow butter because of its Medium Chain Triglycerides or MCTs.
Like with coconut oil, MCTs can provide antimicrobial activity and can have a positive affect on metabolism.
Goats have a somewhat different diet than cows because they are foragers.
Goat milk will contain higher amounts of calcium and copper than cow's milk.
Goat milk is thought to be more digestible and less allergenic than cow's milk. Goat milk is also naturally A2 milk. However, it may have a more "goaty" taste - LOL.
Look for organic pastured raw goat butter for the most health benefits. Or learn to make goat butter yourself!
