Clarified butter, also known as “ghee”, is made by extracting the milk sugars & proteins from butter, leaving behind only the butter fat. CB only contains grass-fed cow butter. Ghee contains multiple different lengths of fatty acids, many of which have documented positive health benefits. Butyrate in particular has many well-documented benefits, including fat-burning, preserving insulin sensitivity, and suppressing tissue inflammation. Check out the evidence page for more info.
VIRGIN-PRESSED COCONUT OIL
The coconut oil we use is a “virgin pressing” of organic coconuts harvested in the Philippines. The coconut milk is left to sit for 24 hours, and the oil naturally separates from the water. This leads to more shorter-chain triglycerides in the oil, which make for easier digestion as well as easier blending. The internet is full of great reasons to add more coconut oil to your diet – see some of our favorites on the evidence page.
RAW CACAO POWDER
Besides taste, one of the major reasons why cacao powder is so fantastic is its high level of theobromine. Like caffeine, theobromine stimulates the heart, but it also relaxes smooth muscle tissue, dilates blood vessels, and improves your mood. Theobromine has been used for years to treat high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis, and is one of the reasons cacao is considered a “superfood”. Theobromine’s effect peaks 2 hours after consumption, which is 60-75 minutes after caffeine’s peak. This delay in peak energy helps you maintain your energy throughout the day, and keeps you from rushing back to the coffee pot again and again.
