Bulletproof Coffee: What It Is and Why You Should Drink It

There are many coffee drinkers out there who cannot start their day or even put together a coherent sentence without one or several cups of coffee.

In fact, more than half of adults in the United States drink at least one cup of coffee each day. If you are a coffee connoisseur or a full-blown addict, why not amp up your morning java and throw in a little coconut oil and ghee? Say what???

Instead of breakfast, you can start your day off right with a cup of Bulletproof Coffee, which is a cup of coffee blended with coconut oil and grass-fed unsalted butter or ghee to create a latte-like consistency.


“Drinking Bulletproof coffee will improve your brain function and performance…”


This cup of joe will be unlike any you have ever had. Not only will you have the best tasting, creamiest cup of coffee – no creamer or sugar required – but you will experience tremendous health, beauty and weight-loss benefits.


The Benefits of Bulletproof Coffee

Drinking Bulletproof coffee will improve your brain function and performance, and because of the addition of healthy fats, this cup of java will provide you with long-lasting energy, a boost to your metabolism and digestive system, and fat-burning potential for at least six hours.

The science here is that the caffeine combines with the fats in the butter and coconut oil, which together slowly release energy and fat burning potential into your body throughout your day. You will not have a rise and fall in your blood sugar as the oils reduce the impact of caffeine on your body to give you sustainable, long-term energy.

The benefits of Bulletproof Coffee are not just on the inside. You may also experience some tremendous beauty benefits, such as improved complexion, smoother and clearer skin and healthier looking hair and nails – all due to your increase in good-for-you fats.


Bulletproof Coffee Ingredients and What You Need to Know

The magic behind Bulletproof Coffee is all in the carefully selected, high-quality ingredients. The key components to Bulletproof Coffee include:

1. Coffee: Here, you cannot grab any old coffee grinds on your store shelf. You will want to choose high-quality beans that are low in toxins. An organic and fair trade coffee is your best bet.

2. Coconut Oil or MCT Oil: You can choose regular unrefined coconut oil that is available in most supermarkets or online here. Or, you can amp up your beverage with Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT Oil).

MCT Oil gives you an almost instant boost in energy, and because it does not contain sugar, you won’t have the inevitable crash that comes with most other sources of energy.

We recommend this high-quality MCT Oil from Onnit, which you can buy here.

3. Ghee or Butter: Ghee is a vitamin-rich clarified butter that is made from cow or buffalo milk, which is commonly used in Indian cooking. Your body absorbs ghee directly to the liver and burns it as a consistent source of energy.

Grass fed unsalted butter is a superfood that contains high-quality fats and is loaded with nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, vitamins A, K, D and E and antioxidants, which is identified by its rich yellow color.



Here’s How to Make Your Own Bulletproof Coffee at Home

Follow this easy 4-step process:

1. Blend 8-12 oz. of high-quality, low toxin coffee. We recommend this. Using a French press is preferred.
2. Add in 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil (start with 1 and work your way up to 2).
3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee.
4. Blend everything together until frothy and smooth and enjoy!


Bulletproof Coffee: Your Typical Cup of Joe Evolved

If you aren’t a fan of coffee, you can substitute it with a cup of green tea, which will give you the added antioxidant benefits. Whichever recipe you follow, there might be a transition period as your body adjusts from a low-fat diet that you have probably been maintaining for years to this high-fat diet.

You can start off with a lesser amount of oil and butter and work your way up to the full recipe. You can also help ease this transition period and help your body adjust and metabolize your new breakfast by taking a digestive supplement with your coffee.

Make yourself feel bulletproof with this enhanced cup of joe. Don’t take our word for it. Try it for yourself and you can experience better energy and focus than you have had in years, if ever! Have you tried Bulletproof Coffee? What were your results?
