The healthiest fat

Ghee is extremely important in Ayurvedic nutrition and medicine and is considered a “golden elixir” for health. It is used therapeutically externally and internally, but is also used in cooking as the best fat. Ghee is a clarified organic butter that separates the animal protein and lactose through a complex clarification process. Both are skimmed off, which is why ghee is also suitable for people with milk protein or lactose intolerance.

Ghee is one of the healthiest fats because it consists of short, medium and long chain fatty acids. It predominantly contains saturated fatty acids, which are essential for our nervous, immune and hormonal systems. Ghee also has a high proportion of omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids. These have a positive effect on heart health, memory and skin. It contains vitamins A, D, E and K and other important minerals, nutrients and antioxidants that support our body and metabolism and keep them healthy. Ghee, like coconut oil, can be heated to a high temperature and is therefore perfect for cooking, frying and baking. Vegetable oils such as B. Olive oil, corn oil, rapeseed oil, nut oils or seed oils oxidize easily and should not be heated to high temperatures, as they harm our organism. Another advantage: Ghee has a shelf life of around one year and can be stored refrigerated or unrefrigerated.

Ghee promotes intestinal health

Ghee has a positive effect on intestinal health as it removes toxins and nourishes the intestinal mucosa. This will make the intestinal walls more stable. Ghee is a promising therapeutic approach in Ayurvedic medicine for diseases such as “leaky gut”, a permeable intestine, irritable bowel syndrome and other inflammatory bowel diseases. Ghee also improves intestinal peristalsis and the associated emptying of the intestines. It prevents the growth of pathological intestinal germs and promotes the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria. Ghee also plays an important therapeutic role in the well-known Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment, a cleansing treatment that is carried out over several days under medical supervision. Patients drink a small amount of this to remove fat-soluble pollutants from the body. Ghee has the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and release toxins from the nerve cells and the spaces between them.

Internal and external use

Ghee is one of the most important carriers for Ayurvedic medicinal herbal therapy, which can be transported deep into the cells. In combination with Ayurvedic herbs, it is used successfully in various therapeutic areas. Even when cooking, by roasting the spices in ghee, the effect of the spices and herbs can be increased, as the nutrients are easily transported into the cells. Ghee can also be used externally as it has a wound-healing effect and supports the formation of scars. Mixed with turmeric, the anti-inflammatory effect is increased. Ghee can also be used as a substitute for ointments, especially for dry mucous membranes in the nose or vaginal area and for cracked corners of the mouth.
