None the less, whatever the reason you took an interest in this type of coffee, just read on below to learn all about its benefits and how to prepare it.
What exactly is bulletproof coffee?
As we already mentioned, to prepare bulletproof coffee you need only three main ingredients:
- MTC (medium-chain triglycerides oil)
None of these three ingredients can be left-out because if any is missing the effects of this coffee would not be the same. Moreover, since bulletproof coffee aims to achieve ketosis, the proper macro ratio is very important. Meaning to reach ketosis injecting fats and depleting crabs is essential because ketosis is a metabolic state that promotes using fat stores to fuel the body instead of glucose. Once this is achieved, some major changes take place in your body, because the source of energy has been shifted.
Owing to the state of ketosis, along with a few other factors, bulletproof coffee brings some amazing benefits to the body.
Bulletproof coffee benefits
Regular coffee is often consumed right after you’ve had your breakfast, but this is not the case with bulletproof coffee because it is in fact used as a breakfast replacement. Introducing bulletproof coffee as a replacement for your regular breakfast can bring you loads of benefits. Below we have included just some of the most prominent ones like:
- Fullness and satisfaction
For this benefit of bulletproof coffee, we have MCT oil to thank as it is the ingredient that brings the feeling of fullness and satisfaction and helps suppress hunger. With the intake of fatty acids, the hunger hormone is suppressed, so we feel no major need for food.
The intake of this coffee similarly to the intake of any other keto food promotes the fat-burning process making the process of weight loss faster and more efficient. Furthermore, not only is your body using fat as an energy source, but it is also depleting its carb supply.
- Lasting energy
MTC oil, unlike other oils, bypasses processing by the liver and goes straight into the bloodstream where it is converted into ketones which are later used as fuel. This ultimately leads to sustainable, longer-lasting energy and by drinking this coffee in the morning you are ensuring your body will be provided with the energy it needs all throughout the day.
Also, the combination of caffeine and grass-fed butter is very beneficial as butter consists of saturated fat which decreases caffeine absorption, preventing any type of caffeine-related mood swings or crash.
- Mental clarity
Reports suggest that compared to glucose, fats have proven to be a better alternative energy source for the brain providing more power and ensuring clarity throughout the day.
Consumers of bulletproof coffee have reported better focus, mental clarity, and alertness as well.
