Everything about what is bulletproof coffee explained

What’s Bulletproof Coffee You Ask? (Everything You Need to Know)

Bulletproof Coffee was developed by David Asprey, a well-known "biohacker" who uses food and other natural means to vastly improve his health and increase his energy levels.

Bulletproof coffee consist of three main ingredients:

  1. Coffee beans carefully grown and harvested to avoid mycotoxins which are toxins found in mold and fungi that often attack coffee beans and can never be fully removed by roasters.
  2. Brain Octane Oil, one of the healthiest oils on Earth!
  3. Butter from grass-fed cows, and excellent source of the most bioavailable omega-3.

Is Bulletproof Coffee Good for You?

Yes, very good for you! In fact, Bulletproof Coffee should be considered a health elixir!

Here's four reasons why:

1. It's Mycotoxin Free

Most coffee sold on the market today has some degree of mycotoxins mixed in. Even in minute amounts, mycotoxins can cause brain fog, anxiety, gastrointestinal issues, and joint pain,

To make matters worse, most coffee manufacturers use toxic chemicals to remove the mycotoxins and residual amounts of these chemicals remain in the product sold on the grocery store shelves!

2. Contains Brain Octane Oil

Brain Octane Oil gives you sustained energy throughout the day! It also improves your metabolism and makes it much easier to lose weight.

Beyond this, Brain Octane Oil is one of the most powerful anti-bacterial substances known! Many people have a Candida infection in their body that causes a myriad of health problems and don't even know it. Brain Octane Oil is highly effective at removing this harmful yeast!

Brain Octane Oil can also rid the body of harmful bacteria, including forms that are otherwise difficult to remove. These include Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and even methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)!

You'll learn more about Brain Octane Oil below.

3. It Contains Omega-3

Butter made with milk from grass fed cows is full of omega-3 which keeps your brain well nourished and your cell membranes functioning properly.

Grass fed butter is also loaded with vitamin K2 which helps to clean out your clogged arteries! In addition, it has a high level of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which is recommended for fat loss!

4. Contains Antioxidants and Vitamins

Coffee itself contains a massive amount of very powerful antioxidants and vitamins. It helps you burn fat more efficiently. It also improves memory and reduces your risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease. It even helps to prevent type 2 diabetes and can help improve the symptoms of those who already have type 2 diabetes.

Is Bulletproof Coffee Bad for You?

No! Don't be scared off by some people's claim that Brain Octane Oil and butter give you too much saturated fat!

It is a MYTH that saturated fat is harmful. This myth is perpetuated by the food industry that wants to sell you more profitable trans fat products like margarine, Crisco, and canola oil. Brain Octane Oil and grass fed butter are two of the healthiest foods you can consume!

Some people who drink Bulletproof Coffee skip breakfast completely. We do not recommend doing this long-term as this is unhealthy.

It is best to add some protein and good healthy vegetables to your breakfast along with your Bulletproof Coffee. A quick egg scramble with whatever vegetables you have on hand is a great complement to your Bulletproof Coffee.

We recommend some of the following vegetables: broccoli, kale, spinach, onion, mushrooms (technically not a vegetable but very good for you), peppers, and green herbs like chives or thyme for a powerful antioxidant and mineral boost.

Here's a Basic Bulletproof Coffee Recipe:

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups hot Bulletproof coffee (brewed using your preferred method)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of grass fed unsalted butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Brain Octane Oil

How to Make It

Put all three ingredients into a blender and blend at high speed for at least one minute. The hot coffee will melt the butter. If you want your Bulletproof coffee to be creamier and frothier, blend on high for one and a half to two minutes. Adding three tablespoons of butter and two tablespoons of Brain Octane Oil will make a creamier coffee. You can experiment with adding slightly more or less of both to customize it to your specific preferences.

If you do not use the blender and only hand mix the three ingredients, you will not get much froth and the oil will rise to the top before you are finished drinking it. You WILL get the same amazing health benefits hand mixing it of course but it will not taste as good if you don't use a blender. This is because the mouthfeel will be different.

Even if you vigorously stir it, you won't get the creamy goodness like you get in a rich cappuccino and the oil will still rise to the top. Therefore, to make a really great cup of Bulletproof coffee, we highly recommend you use a blender.

Be sure too to use unsalted butter! Salt, unfortunately, can kill the taste.

Do I Have to Buy Grass-Fed Butter?

Unsalted grass-fed butter

If you want the full health benefit from Bulletproof Coffee, yes!

Grass fed butter is made with milk from cows who eat grass, not corn and soy like most modern factory farms feed their cows.

Grass is the food Mother Nature intended hoofed animals to eat, and when cows eat grass, their milk a far more healthy composition.

First and foremost, milk from grass fed cows contains good amounts of both the DHA and EPA forms of omega-3. These are the healthiest forms of omega-3 for the human body.

Finally, don't be fooled into thinking that "organic butter" is the same as grass-fed.

What's the Difference Between Brain Octane Oil and Coconut Oil?

You may not realize this but coconut oil is actually a mixture of four different types of oils (fatty acid chains):

  1. Caproic Acid; there are six carbon atoms in the fatty acid chain.
  2. Caprylic Acid; there are eight carbon atoms in the fatty acid chain.
  3. Capric Acid; there are ten carbon atoms in the fatty acid chain.
  4. Lauric Acid; there are twelve carbon atoms in the fatty acid chain.

While all four of these oils (fatty acid chains) are classified as "medium-chain triglycerides" (MCTs) by biochemists, the human body metabolizes each one differently because of the differences in their chemical structure.

All four of these fats bestow a health benefit. However, capric acid is by far the healthiest because of how it is metabolized and utilized by the body.

In fact, it is considered to be at least eighteen times healthier than plain coconut oil. However, it constitutes only six percent of coconut oil so it is more expensive to isolate just the capric acid component of coconut oil.

Brain Octane Oil, used in Bulletproof Coffee, is capric acid. Furthermore, it is a highly purified form of capric acid that is processed using a triple steam distillation method in an oxygen free environment so there is no harmful oxidation.

Other MCTs on the market use solvents like hexane during refinement and oxidation is prevalent during the manufacturing process.

This makes Brain Octane Oil considerably more expensive than regular coconut oil and other MCTs on the market. However, the health benefits are so incredibly powerful, they more than make up for the extra cost.

Brain Octane Oil is NOT processed by the liver, and therefore, cannot be stored as fat on the body!

Just one to two tablespoons of Brain Octane Oil can be utilized immediately by the brain and you'll feel an IMMEDIATE boost of mental and physical energy using this special oil.

It's actually a better pick-me-up than the caffeine in coffee or the sugar so many people add to their coffee. Plus, the energetic effect of Brain Octane Oil will last much longer that sugar or caffeine.

Final Thoughts

Bulletproof Coffee is a decadent tasting coffee SUPER-FOOD. It is very simple to prepare and a great way to start your day. You will notice a difference in your energy levels and overall health almost immediately and it will get even better after a few weeks of drinking this health elixir!
