In patient appointments we are always directing people to eat more "healthy" fat but it can be confusing when our government recommendations and many of our helpful "nonprofits" are running interference for big industry.... who they take millions from. Many who remember our "health experts" taking butter and eggs away from us in the 70's and 80's now know there was never any real science behind it... just some cherry picked research and a lot of money was the real recipe.
Butyrate which butter is named after is so important for our health!!!
This is a repost from @CarnivoreCure on Instagram. This diagram struck me when I saw it. No wonder the big oil industry had to get rid of this healthy fat ....look at everything we got with it along with the heat tolerant fat in butter. You could make a similar post for eggs......so good for us it just had to go...big cereal couldnt compete with it.
Nutritional guidance recommends copious amounts of fiber in our diet. Fiber is broken down into short-chain fatty acids—such as butyrate (butyric acid), propionate (propionic acid), and acetate (acetic acid). Butyrate is essential because it is the preferred fuel source by the large intestine’s endothelial cells.
🥛Butter, cream, and cheese contain butyrate in its absorbable form. In fact, butter is the best source of butyric acid or butyrate. In fact, the origins of the word butyric acid are from the Latin word, butyrum—the same origins of the word butter.
❓How did we come to think that butyric acid is best from plants?
🧈The number one dietary source of butyrate is butter. According to a 2016 microbiome study, “Butter contains 3 to 4 percent of butyric acid, in the form of tributyrin (butyryl triglyceride), making it the richest dietary source of butyrate…”
🧬Butyrate is also made in small quantities in mammalian cells through the breakdown of fats and metabolism of glucose. Yes, butyrate can be found in animal fats and dairy.
🧐Some carnivores don’t consume any dairy. It may be possible that the minimal amounts of butyrate obtained from animal fats is sufficient. Bacteria also makes butyrate from the leftovers of cells and mucus. In fact, the end of the colon (the sigmoid colon) relies more on this type of butyrate than the butyrate from foods.
💡Eat more butter. It’s nutrient-dense, copious amounts can be eaten safely, (without carbs) and good for gut health.
