The concept of bulletproof coffee was formulated by Dave Asprey, an entrepreneur and author from New Mexico. It is a high-performance drink that is high in fat, adequate in proteins and low in carbohydrates having an immense impact on energy and metabolism. Drinking bulletproof coffee suppresses hunger, provides long-lasting energy, improves mental health and boosts metabolism.

How to prepare- The Basic Bulletproof Coffee

Bulletproof coffee is a healthy and magical combination of coffee beans, grass-fed butter and virgin coconut oil. Why is it a great combination? Coffee contains Vitamin B, antioxidants and phytonutrients that improve brain functioning, mood and provide energy. VCO is an ideal source of energy due to the MCT’s present in the oil which also aid in weight loss. Grass-fed butter is rich in fatty acids that helps the body lose fat and maintain proper weight.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups freshly brewed hot coffee
  • 1-2 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil
  • 1-2 tablespoon of grass-fed butter
  • 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon, for taste (optional)

Procedure: Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a blender for 30 seconds or until frothy.
Serve and enjoy!

Benefits of Bulletproof Coffee:

Regular intake of bulletproof coffee can prevent diabetes, protect from Alzheimer’s disease, reduce the risk of heart diseases, protect the liver from getting damaged and help the brain fight depression.

One of the main ingredients used in preparing bulletproof coffee is Virgin Coconut Oil. It is one of the most natural forms of energy and is easily absorbed in the body. Made from fresh coconuts through a process called ‘cold-pressing’, Nirmal VCO is extremely beneficial since it has zero chemicals and contains healthy fatty acids, MCT’s and antioxidants. It is naturally loaded with antibacterial, antifungal and anti inflammatory properties and does not undergo any kind of chemical processing and hence it is 100% unrefined unlike other oils.

Aids in weight loss: Fatty acids in the coffee can reduce appetite and convert the fats into energy. Regular consumption of bulletproof coffee made with virgin coconut oil will reduce unnecessary hunger cravings and help to reduce body weight in the long run.

Fights depression, Alzheimer’s: Mixing coffee with VCO and grass-fed butter makes it rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These fatty acids help the body fight depression, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, symptoms of asthma, attention deficiency and hyper-activeness.

Prevents heart disease and diabetes: Omega-6 fatty acids present in bulletproof coffee contain anti-inflammatory properties that prevent premature ageing, cardiovascular illness and diabetes.

Improves brain health and general well being: Consumption of bulletproof coffee can protect the brain from cognitive illnesses like dementia and act as a cognitive enhancer in older people. It reduces anxiety, improves mood and increases the testosterone level in the body. The quick acting MCT’s in virgin coconut oil enhance brain power.

Boosts energy levels: The caffeine present in coffee boosts energy. Bulletproof coffee is high in fat and provides nutritious and healthy calories that keep you active and energetic throughout the day.

Bulletproof coffee can be included as a part of keto diet due to its overall benefits to the body. It can be used as a replacement for a meal, especially as a breakfast substitute. The various individual health benefits of virgin coconut oil when combined with the benefits of coffee, help people who consume it regularly live an active life. Bulletproof coffee is a great way to kick start the day in a powerful and energetic way.
