Benefits of Ghee and Butter in Ayurveda

It is fascinating how two simple ingredients – butter and ghee, derived from cow’s milk, can boost your health & wellness in amazing ways. Let’s find out the benefits of ghee and butter in Ayurveda.

Fresh Butter: The Ayurvedic Superfood

Fresh butter is a delicious & nutritious food that can enhance your diet & well-being. It is light, soft, & has a slightly sweet-astringent-sour taste. Fresh Butter nourishes the marrow tissue, which improves your mental clarity & memory. It also aids digestion & balances Vata-Pitta doshas, which are responsible for movement & metabolism in your body. It is beneficial in conditions like tuberculosis, hemorrhoids, facial paralysis, & more. Include it in your diet for these conditions or as a preventive measure. 

Old Butter: The Childhood Companion 

Old butter is not as easy to digest as fresh butter, but it is good for children. It helps them grow strong & healthy, & protects them from infections & diseases.

Butter from Raw Milk: A Soothing Balm for Eyes 

This type of butter is also harder to digest than fresh butter, but it has a wonderful effect on your eyes when used externally. It soothes & moisturizes your eyes, & prevents eye diseases & infections. However, if you are sedentary, eat oily foods regularly, or are overweight, you should limit your intake of this butter as it can increase Kapha dosha, which eventually increase meda (fat). 

Ghee (Clarified Butter): The Golden Elixir of Ayurveda

Ghee is one of the most revered substances in Ayurveda. It is said that “Eat ghee with meals or fast”. Ghee has a prominent place in our diet & in Ayurveda. Among all oily substances, ghee is considered the best. Ghee has a it’s own sweet taste (Madhur Rasa according to ayurveda) & cooling properties, which helps balance Vata-Pitta doshas. It is beneficial for the eyes & can be used both internally & externally. It also enhances the absorption of nutrients from other foods, & acts as a carrier for herbal medicines. However, ghee extracted directly from fat (packaged ghee available in markets) is harder to digest. To make it more digestible, boil it with a few grains of pepper or a leaf of betel or turmeric. All these substances are nutritious but should be consumed in moderation according to one’s digestive strength & constitution or as advised by an Ayurvedic physician.
