Bulletproof coffee has become SUPER popular lately!! What is bulletproof coffee? Should you drink bulletproof coffee?
Well, there are a few different forms of bulletproof coffee that you might’ve heard of.
Bulletproof coffee was created by Dave Asprey, and there both are the bulletproof coffee beans and the bulletproof coffee drink.
Dave Asprey suffered from mold toxicity, and found that most coffees contain mold—eek! So he set out to create a toxic-free coffee drink. You can buy the beans on his site or on Amazon
—they are def pricey though! Honestly, I’m not sure if his beans are everything they’re hyped up to be—but you can judge that yourself. You definitely SHOULD be drinking organic, fair trade coffee—since coffee is sprayed with pesticides and typically the workers are way underpaid.
So you have the bulletproof coffee bean, and then Dave Asprey created his ‘upgraded’ coffee, which was his special coffee bean blended with grass-fed butter and Brain Octane oil
(a special version of MCT oil).

What are the benefits of drinking bulletproof coffee?
The healthy fats found in grass-fed butter can help balance hormones and boost cognitive function! Grass-fed butter contains omega-3 fatty acids, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, beta-carotene, CLA (a fatty acid with fat loss benefits), and antioxidants.
Butter is also great for your digestion and brain! Grass-fed butter is high in butyrate, which is a short-chain fatty acids that can decrease and prevent inflammation! Eating anti-inflammatory foods is super important since high levels of inflammation are linked to everrrrything from cancer to depression!!
The butter you use matters! Grass-fed cows are way healthier than grain-fed or factory-farmed cows, and the butter they produce reflects their good health! In the states we buy Kerrygold butter!
Bulletproof coffee also contains a special form of MCT oil called Brain Octane
, which Asprey claims helps you suppress hunger, think faster, workout harder, and lose weight.
