3. Reduces cholesterol

Ghee is packed with butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid that has several benefits, one of which is better digestion. Our bodies actually convert fibre into butyric acid, so eating it makes the body's job easier. Butyric acid heals the digestive tract and keeps it healthy.

5. Good for brain and rich in vitamin

According to Ayurveda, ghee is good for brain too, as it makes it sharper and increases memory retention. Now modern science hasn't really caught up on this aspect yet, but hopefully soon it will. Ghee is actually a great source of healthy fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K, that our body needs a supply of regularly. A is essential to keep our eyesight sharp and skin moist and smiling with health, D keeps fatigue and bone pain away, E is essential for heart health and K helps to keep our bones strong.
