Bulletproof coffee is also known as butter, and it’s a high-calorie, high-fat beverage that has added fats. It’s meant to help you get started in the morning. Dave Asprey (American entrepreneur and author) is the inventor of Bulletproof Coffee Recipes. Low carb diets and ketogenic followers have found the drink to be very popular. Learn more about the benefits of bulletproof coffee, including how you can make it at home.

How to make bulletproof coffee

Bulletproof coffee is a combination of high-quality coffee with unsalted butter, and medium chain triglyceride, such as coconut oil. These ingredients are combined and served warm to make a creamy latte.

While many high-carb and highly processed breakfast options, such as pastries, cereals, toast, or toast, can provide an energy boost, they may also disrupt blood sugar, leaving us wanting another sweet treat. Bulletproof coffee, according to Dave Asprey, provides the energy you need to get started in the morning and is a low-carb option to high-carb breakfasts.

What are the benefits of bulletproof coffee

There has been a lot of research on coffee consumption, but very few studies have looked at bulletproof coffee. More research is needed to make any definitive conclusions.

Bulletproof coffee claims to make you feel satisfied, alert, and focused. Bulletproof coffee is not currently being studied. However, studies have shown that coffee in the morning can help improve performance and short-term recall.

Research has also shown that caffeine intake can increase resting metabolic rate, and thermogenesis (our bodies’ process of producing heat), according to studies.

Bulletproof coffee has fats from butter, MCT oil and other key components. This is said to suppress appetite, stabilize hunger and provide calories to fuel your day. Butter is high in calories and contains fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K. It also provides gut-friendly butter and conjugated fats that may improve body fat composition.

Bulletproof coffee is suitable for those who are following a low-carb/high-fat diet. It contains no carbs, and the body converts MCT oil into ketones. This effect is believed to be more powerful when there is no meal.

MCT oil is quickly absorbed by the body and is therefore quickly metabolised by your liver. MCT oil could be useful in weight loss. However, more research is needed to confirm these findings.

Recent research suggests that low-carb, high fat diets don’t increase your total or LDL cholesterol. It is important to note that long-term effects of such diets are not known and recommendations for daily fat intake have not changed. According to research, ketogenic diets might be associated with improvements in cardiovascular risk factors such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and HDL cholesterol. However, these effects may diminish over time.

What are the possible downsides to bulletproof coffee?

A bulletproof coffee is not a good choice for breakfast. You’ll miss out on the chance to enjoy a nutritious meal. Instead, you are drinking a high-fat, low-nutrient beverage.

Bulletproof coffee is primarily high in saturated fats. For example, a single tablespoon of unsalted butter provides 12.3g fat. More than half of these are saturated fats. Bulletproof coffee, when combined with the MCT oil recommended, will provide more than your daily intake of saturated fat (20g), and approximately 242-354kcal per cup (depending upon the amount of butter).
