The Healing Benefits of Cultured Ghee

Share on social media

Here’s what I have learned from the ancient Ayurvedic texts about ghee:

Enhances digestive fire while having a cooling and alkalizing effect on the whole body
Calms and rejuvenates the eyes
Promotes longevity
Binds fat-soluble toxins
Cools and lubricates the stomach wall
Pacifies the Airy and the Fiery
Enhances complexion and glow of the face and body
Increases physical and mental stamina
Supports the brain’s functions of learning, retention, and recall
And here are some additional findings from modern research:

Gives satiation
Provides sustaining energy
Supports healthy hormone production
Enhances mineral absorption
Helps the delivery and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
Produces healthy bile by supporting the liver
Maintains anti-inflammatory processes and supports the body’s healing intelligence

      Hi Judy, thank you for asking. Using kefir instead of yogurt won’t work well–you won’t get a lot of butter, plus kefir is quite sour. The key is to use cream yogurt, aka cultured cream (yogurt made from heavy cream instead of milk)–you will get a high yield of cultured butter and then ghee.
