Were you concerned that the cholesterol from putting butter in coffee was bad for your health? No more!
One of the main criticisms we’ve seen with Coffee Blocks, butter coffee, or Bulletproof Coffee®, is that the high amount of cholesterol from the grass fed butter and organic coconut oil can’t be good for your heart.
Though it’s not quite a complete stamp of approval for butter coffee, the US Government’s Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee says that cholesterol in the food you eat is no longer a health concern.
After decades of saying that cholesterol in the diet was a risk factor for heart disease, the government has changed their position. The science shows little to no correlation between the consumption of foods high in cholesterol and high “bad” cholesterol in the blood stream. Furthermore, some of the latest science shows that high LDL cholesterol in the bloodstream isn’t a risk factor for coronary heart disease.
So what causes heart disease? The major risk factors for atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease are inflammation and oxidative stress mainly caused from diets high in processed foods and sugars.
With Coffee Blocks and butter coffee in general, we have created a product that will help you replace your high carb, high sugar breakfast with the fat burning and anti-inflammatory power of grass fed butter and organic coconut oil. The best part is that you won’t even miss the sugar in your coffee. Coffee Blocks tastes quite a bit like a latte without any added sugar.
