Is there anybody out there who does not want to be healthier and smarter? If you have been looking for the magic bullet, and enjoy both coffee and butter, go to Amazon and find this beverage as it may be just what you are looking for to enhance the performance of your body’s health and your IQ! Bulletproof Coffee, who you can follow on InstaGram, the brainchild of Dave Asprey and currently the drink of the rich and famous, can be yours with a few kitchen appliances, ingredients, and a modest amount of work.
Asprey says on Facebook that he struggled with being tired and brain-fogged until an eye-opening trip to Tibet where he drank Yak Butter Tea. LA Weekly pointed out that returning home, he began experimenting to find a health and energy-producing beverage to replicate the effects of the Tibetan tea. Then, Today.com notes that Bulletproof Coffee was born. He tinkered for years perfecting his buttery concoction, finally ending up with a cup of frothed coffee that included one to two tablespoons of butter, and a few teaspoons of MCT or coconut oil. He posted the recipe on his blog in 2009 and can be seen compiling the concoction on you tube, claiming it would reduce cravings, prompt ketosis, and boost the IQ. While this IQ boosting claim remains unsubstantiated, fats are known to benefit brain function.
Billboard suggests that the important ingredients in a cup of this high-octane java are pure coffee from beans without any of the mold or toxins common to ordinary beans, a generous amount of unsalted, grass fed butter and a few teaspoons of MCT oil derived from coconut oil. In addition, on NBC.com they express that you can add other supplements like collagen for great skin and energy, plus many other “bulletproof supplements” sold by the company, but the original ingredients championed by Asprey are the non-toxic coffee, butter, and oil. Bloomberg recommends that to make your own Bulletproof Coffee you need to find a non-toxic coffee bean source, a controlled brewing system with metal filters resembling a pour over or French-press type of coffee maker, some unsalted grass fed butter and MCT oil.
In answer to all those who balk at the idea of adding profuse amounts of fat to one’s diet, Asprey points out to Fast Company that key systems in our bodies, including hormones, brain and cell membranes, require fat. Bulletproof Coffee, a 460-calorie beverage and a meal replacement seems to be the cure for all those people sleepwalking through their day. For more information follow this link to their Wikipedia.
