Healthy Saturated Fats
and The Benefits of Saturated Fats
Healthy saturated fats can provide an important vitamin that has gone "missing" in most people's diet these days.
Healthy butter like grass-fed cow butter contains a miraculous
substance that has the ability to prevent tooth decay and calcification.
Other healthy saturated fats 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.
Healthy Saturated Fats - Raw Grass Fed Butter
Raw grass fed 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 magical substance are raw grass fed milk, raw organ meats, and fish eggs.
A man called Dr. Weston Price made this discovery years 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.
He then developed a butter oil with the X-factor and discovered that grass fed butter from the Spring and Fall to be more potent.
This X-factor helps you to better assimilate important body building minerals and helps to prevent calcification.
The X-factor helps to prevent such things as hardening of the arteries and calcification of your pineal gland.
Be aware that cooking at high temperatures and pasteurization destroys important vitamins and the X-factor.

Healthy Saturated Fats - Coconut Oil
Coconut oil fat is approximately 90% saturated.
The rest is mainly monounsaturated fat.
Most of coconut's saturated fat is in the form of MCTs or Medium Chained Triglycerides.
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.
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.
Look for organic cold-pressed coconut oil to get the most health benefits.
Healthy Saturated Fats - Raw Goat Butter
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!
