GRASS-FED BUTTER'S INFLAMMATION BUSTERS: VITAMIN K2, OMEGA 3, AND BUTYRATE
Is grass the missing link to fighting inflammation with butter? Vitamin K2, omega 3 fatty acids and butyrate are all drastically increased in grass fed cows, and are known to lower inflammation in humans. Grass fed butter is one of the few naturally occurring foods where Vitamin K2 can be found in high supply. There is a growing body of research supporting Vitamin K2 as a protective nutrient against chronic aging conditions and diseases, such as inflammation, cardiovascular disease, and osteoarthritis.
WHY GRASS-FED MATTERS WHEN CHOOSING BUTTER
