Bulletproof Coffee: Foolproof Way Of Getting More Things Done

The latest hotshot that is trending in the wellness industry for increasing productivity while controlling dietary intake is Bulletproof Coffee. This magical concoction is the brainchild of Dave Asprey who is the founder of Bulletproof, a company that aims at providing exceptional nutritional products. While traveling in Tibet, he was presented with a coffee that was mixed with yak butter, after consuming it he felt revitalized and from then on he sought to recreate it on his own to yield the same outcome. Later on, he came up with his signature Bulletproof coffee which is enjoyed by many CEOs, parents, and athletes as it keeps them alert and on edge.

In order to make bulletproof coffee, basically, three ingredients are required without which it will not be considered a bulletproof coffee. So, these three ingredients include: coffee made from high-quality coffee beans, unsalted grass-fed butter or ghee, and MCT oil powder. The bulletproof coffee is complementary to several diets such as keto diet, paleo diet, intermittent fasting, and one meal a day diet, as it contains zero carbs and healthy fats that leave you feeling full for an extended period of time, along with providing steady energy and better focus throughout the day so that you can get more things done.

So now let us talk about how these three ingredients benefit your body. Starting with coffee, coffee is a great source of antioxidants, it boosts your metabolism and encourages the body to burn fat for energy gain while keeping you on alert with improved focus. Butter is a source of butyrate which is good for your gut health and may help in improving insulin sensitivity and obesity, it also contains omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin A, and adding butter imparts creaminess to the coffee. MCT oil in coffee is mainly added as a supplement as there are lots of health benefits that are imparted to the body by it. MCT is an abbreviation of medium-chain triglyceride. These are oils that provide a quick energy boost while being easily digestible.

Benefits of MCT oil:


  • It aids in weight loss by releasing satiety hormones that make you feel full.
  • It wards off fatigue by providing a quick boost of energy, thus contributing to increased productivity.
  • It prompts the body to switch to ketosis, which is why it is considered as ketogenic diet-friendly.
