How Ghee Can Help With IBD

It is vital for maintaining optimal digestive health

Ghee is an excellent source of dietary fat that is vital for maintaining optimal digestive health. The American Society of Microbiology reported a study that showed patients suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, do not produce butyric acid and have low levels of fatty acids in their intestines. Being that ghee is rich in butyrate acid, it acts as a detoxifier, helping to support gut barrier function, increase gastric acid, and fight off inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and throughout the body. In addition, its natural levels of CLA aid in metabolism, elimination, boosting the immune system, building lean muscle, and lowering cholesterol levels.
