You are going to need a good amount of ghee in the first 6 to 8 weeks postpartum. Fat is how the medicine is absorbed in your gut and ghee is an excellent way to do this. This is a time to be generous with good fats (ghee, avocado, grass fed butter) Ghee is an absolute staple in our daily life. We make BIG batches of it and leave on the counter as it doesn't need refrigeration. Some benefits (which are far greater than what is listed here): ~Ghee contains medium chain fatty acids which are absorbed right into the liver to use immediately. It’s a very efficient and beneficial source of energy (vs carbs). Because ghee is so well absorbed in the digestive tract, it aids in the absorption of plant medicines (spices/herbs/healing foods). ~Ghee is protective against cancer, plaque buildup and diabetes as it is full of the fatty acid CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). ~Ghee is rich in butyric acid (from the greek word for butter), an important short chain fatty acid that is extremely curative to the digestion. Humans convert fiber into butyric acid so consuming it aids digestion. ~Ghee produces killer T cells in the gut ~Ghee is loaded with the coveted pregnancy Vitamin K2. It’s full of our favorite fellow fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, as well as K. It’s got your Omega 3s too. ~Ghee has a high smoke point which means that it does not burn easily. Why is this important? Burning foods create carcinogens and dreaded free radicals…..that’s just plain science.
