Research has shown that patients with unhealthy digestive tracts do not produce butyric acid and have other low levels of fatty acids or related oils. This is why ghee can be an amazing way to heal the gut.
Some benefits of Ghee in the colon:
Helps digestion by maintaining the heal of the gastrointestinal mucosa
Supports and regulates healthy bowel movement
Inhibits the growth of unwanted bacteria
Supports the health of the intestinal mucosa and healthy bowel functions in those with inflammatory bowel conditions
Good digestion is the key to good health, and if you're dealing with any sort of digestive issues, healing your gut lining is an important first step. Ghee is rich in butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid that nourishes the cells of the intestines. In a comprehensive study, butyric acid was proven that it not only has benefits for the digestive system, but other areas of health as well:
Reduces hunger levels
Increases insulin sensitivity
Supports healthy cholesterol levels
Increases thermogenesis (metabolic process that burns calories for heat production)
Supports immune system response
A safer alternative to lower smoke point oils (when an oil is heated past its smoke point, it generates toxic fumes and free radicals which are extremely harmful to your body. When the smoke point is reached, you'll begin to see the gaseous vapors from heating, a marker that the oil has started to decompose)
