Extraordinary health benefits of butter lip balm
Grass-fed butter is simply better than any other lip balm ingredient. Research shows that the average woman eats nearly four pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, so choose your lip balm ingredients wisely. Contrary to previously held beliefs, butter does not cause heart disease or diabetes. In fact, the saturated fat in butter has never actually been proven to cause heart disease at all. True story: It’s actually trans-fat and polyunsaturated fat that does.
In fact, the fat-soluble vitamins in butter protect against heart disease, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, and degenerative diseases. Butyrate, the short-chain saturated fatty acid in butter, protects against mental illness; increases metabolism and improves body composition in rats. It’s also anti-inflammatory in people. Barebones: Butter packs a whopping nutritional punch.
