Ghee or clarified butter was an integral part of traditional Indian cuisine. However, in recent times, ‘health-conscious’ people think that adding ghee to their food is an unhealthy practice and hence, try to avoid it. Here are some eye-opening facts which will make you change your mind:
Ghee contains conjugated linolenic acid, a type of omega-6 fatty acids, which when consumed daily not only aids in weight loss but also protects you from cancer. This fatty acid plays a key role in improving lean body mass along with reducing body fat thereby aiding in effective weight management.
Ghee is packed with essential amino acids which help in mobilizing the fat and allowing the fat cells to shrink in size. So, if you think your body is accumulating fat quickly, consider adding ghee to your weight loss diet plan.
