An Ayurvedic Superfood: Ghee

An Ayurvedic Superfood: Ghee

Imagine what it would be like to have crispy chapatis without Ghee. Wouldn’t you feel as though something were missing?

Ghee- one of the primary consumables in Indian households- has far reaching implications as it provides employment to millions. With one of the world’s largest bovine populations (approximately 300 million), and with a large percentage of the Indian population engaged in livestock rearing and dairying, milk and ghee production provides employment to the masses in rural and semi-urban India.

Ghee is “lactose-free” clarified butter and benefits us in several ways. Here are some of the reasons why you must consume pure Ghee regularly:

1. Ghee Gives You Skin To Die For

Pollution and dry air can wreak havoc on our skin,and applying chemicals on sensitive skin can worsen it. Here is the remedy to hydrate your skin with the fatty acids present in Ghee. With its rich Vitamin A, D, E & K contents and free radical fighting antioxidants, Ghee helps you get that glowing skin you always wanted.

From an ayurvedic perspective, Ghee balances the Vata & Pitta properties in our body preventing acne, infection and inflammation. It also helps treat burning sensations, scars, and wounds, giving instant relief.

2. Combat Aging WIth Ghee

Aging makes our skin lose the youthful glow leaving it dull. We can reverse the process by the topical application of Ghee. Say goodbye to wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and under-eye bags with the antioxidants present in Ghee.

3. Bring Back Shine To Your Lifeless Hair With Ghee

Ghee improves the texture of hair, and moisturizes it by working as a deep conditioner. The application of Ghee on scalp and hair ends can treat dry, frizzy hair and stimulate hair growth by preventing breakage.

4. Ghee Is A Key Ingredient In A Keto Diet

Contrary to popular opinion, Ghee is highly efficient in weight loss. It is a must for those on the Keto diet as Ghee aids in weight loss. Short and medium chain fats and butyrate present in ghee, are easier to digest, making ghee an excellent ingredient in your Keto diet.

5. One Of The Best Immunity Boosters

In the times of COVID-19 when the world is battling to improve immunity levels, Ghee is the superfood to overcome nutritional deficiencies and to boost immunity. The variants include golden yellow Cow Milk Ghee with higher healing and purifying qualities than that of whitish Buffalo Milk Ghee. An excellent immunity booster recipe is the humble ‘haldi-doodh,’ also known as ‘turmeric latte,’ where turmeric and a spoonful of ghee are heated together, along with milk.

6. Fight Back Cold & Cough With Ghee

The best cure for cold & cough in this changing weather. The use of desi Ghee droplets nourishes vital body parts as throat, nose, & sinus along with improving voice quality and clear vision. A thin layer of ghee should be applied in the inner wall of nostrils to prevent the entrance of pollutants and to prevent nasal congestion.

7. Heal Your Heart & Prevent Cancer With Ghee

Again, contrary to the popular belief, Ghee is very good for the health of your heart due to monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats present in it.

The presence of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) in Ghee prevents cancer and keeps you healthy.

8. Improves Digestion & Soothes The Stomach

What makes Ghee stand out from oil is “Butyrate” – a fatty acid that gets removed from the gut due to excessive consumption of processed oils. The void is filled by consuming Ghee that eventually makes the process of digestion easier & provides relief in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

9. Cleanse Your System With Ghee

Ghee being one of the Panchkarma in Ayurveda reduces the accumulation of toxins such as lead and mercury, thereby detoxifying the body. Cooking with Ghee is a healthier alternative, as the high smoke point of Ghee (252° C) retains the natural nutrients of food. Most oils and butter have lower smoke points, which means that they are more prone to oxidation. Oxidation creates free radicals and can damage your cells.

Whenever you need a way to relieve stress, add one droplet of Ghee to your favorite meal, as it is highly efficient in regulating mood disorder by promoting the release of happy hormones that relax the mind and body.

Pure Ghee is devoid of any overpowering flavor or smell. When adulterated with hydrogenated or animal fat, it gets detrimental to our health while the pure form helps you detox by its goodness.

The superfood nourishes the body, mind and soul, and is a safer and healthier choice for you and your family. Making pure ghee accessible at affordable prices is the key goal of the brand ProVedic. Check out their products on
