SO! We’ve all heard of Bulletproofing our coffees by now… I mean why else would we be at this juncture? Your friends told you about this NEW CRAZE where the barista put GHEE BUTTER and COCONUT OIL in your COFFEE!
Could this be TRUE? Yep… BUT, is it legit? Is it actually better for you? I’m gonna break it down and tell you why it is!
BEAR WITH ME!
Here are 10 REASONS that BULLETPROOF COFFEE WORKS…
1.) What is Bulletproof Coffee?
Bulletproof coffee (and the first reason) simply put, is screened for MOLD TOXINS that are HARMFUL to our bodies, ultimately robbing us of energy and mental agility. If you have ever had bad tasting coffee this is more than likely a scenario where your taste buds are rejecting the toxins. These toxins are called Ochratoxin.
BULLETPROOF COFFEE MIX DRINK. (MCT OIL AND GHEE BUTTER)
This is Bulletproof’s signature drink that contains MCT OIL extracted from pure coconut oil and Bulletproof ghee butter from 100 percent grass fed organic cows.
2.) What are Ochratoxins?
Ochratoxin is a class of several chemicals belonging to the fungal toxins known as MYCOTOXINS. There are 2 types that can affect you. A and B. TYPE A hits your KIDNEYS, causes CANCER and messes up your IMMUNE SYSTEM. Bulletproof Coffee’s entire existence is based of the owners experience with becoming SICK from BAD COFFEE! You can check out his blog on bulletproofs website…
3.) Why is Cheaper Coffee BAD for You?
Well, cheaper coffee is usually grown with less care, where quantity supersedes quality. You will also often notice that BLENDS are cheaper than SINGLE ORIGIN variety beans. This is because the blends can be sourced from multiple areas, almost guaranteeing you will get beans with mold on them. REMEMBER, mold is the cause of the TOXINS!!!
DECAF coffee is even worse quality that the blends are. This is because caffeine acts as a natural defense in the coffee plant. Because of this, DECAF coffee has higher amounts of aflatoxin and ochratoxin. Bulletproof coffee offers a Decaf bean using their upgraded method and the beans are then lab tested for toxins, to provide you the cleanest cup of coffee you can get.
5.) So Why Coffee at all?
Coffee has proven to have SEVERAL HEATLH BENEFITS, 10 which I have written about previously in another post! Diabetes, stokes, cancer, and Alzheimers are all illnesses that coffee fights to prevent. Not only that, but coffee increases productivity, mental focus, increases athletic performance and increases fat loss. These are all positive things! COFFEE is good for you, but NOT with MOLD. And this is the MAIN POINT Bulletproof Coffee is aiming at making with their coffee!
6.) Doesn’t Roasting Burn The Mold Away?
Not completely, at 180 degrees the mold only starts to burn away (reference link), however the toxins remain behind with the bean even after the roasting process. Here are one and two studies on government websites that PROVE the Ochratoxins are NOT burned away after the roasting process.
7.) What’s With The Ghee Butter?
The healthy fats in ghee butter will hold your energy for hours, balance your hormones, boost cognitive functions and give you a CREAMY tasting coffee!
****With Ghee butter you get omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, CLA (a fatty acid with powerful fat-loss benefits), and MORE antioxidants than you would with your regular cup of coffee.
8.) MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) Oil in Coffee?
Bulletproof calls it Brain Octane. It is a triple-distilled coconut oil free from impurities. It supports brain-fueling and fat-burning molecules in your body. These are also known as KEYTONES. It is yet again another addition to the Bulletproof latte and Bulletproof brand that makes the coffee extraordinary.
9.) Mental Focus, Sustained Energy?
So NOT ALL COFFEE IS BAD for you. It is the poorly farmed and cheaply bought coffee that is harmful due to the TOXINS formed from the process the beans go through to get the seeds out of the coffee fruit. With Bulletproof’s Upgraded process and lab testing, they have guaranteed a way to get great tasting beans minus the negative effects of all the bad TOXINS in regular coffee. So now you mental focus and energy is NOT being attacked by the TOXINS.
10.) Strengthened Immune System!
Again, WITHOUT the TOXINS, Bulletproof coffee enables coffees POWERFUL antioxidants to do their job uninhibited! As I have said before, COFFEE is the NUMBER 1 SOURCE of ANTIOXIDANT INTAKE in AMERICA... Think about how much mold is passing through the non-restrictive coffee import of America. E Bulletproof coffee’s upgraded process AGAIN (…because I sound like a broken record at this point) allows us consumers to reap our maximum energy benefits from the caffeinated beans. HOW could this NOT be GOOD?
My Overall Words…
Believe it or not, I have actually had BULLETPROOF Coffee. It’s no joke… There coffee is amazing and their Bulletproof drink is just as good. The Ghee with the oil make a nice fatty (HEALTHY Fat) drink! I used to grab their Bulletproof coffee blended drink before I started work at Groundwork Coffee back in Venice, California a few years back.
I just want you folks to know, I am a person and I am legitimately writing about things I believe in, or don’t… I aim to review great coffee but I cannot control the product before it reaches my taste buds… obviously 🙂
What EXACTLY is the Bulletproof Latte?
Check out this video… It is basically the coffee brewed, the MCT Oil and the Ghee butter all blended together to make an AMAZING CREAMY latte drink. It will sustain your energy and productivity for hours and the best part, is that it is PURE, HEALTHIER and DELICIOUS.
