The health benefits of ghee are truly incredible, so we’re here to *spread* the good word. We know everyone loves a list, so today we are sharing three surprising health benefits of ghee you might not know! 


But first, a bit of background information on why 4th & Heart is always made from grass-fed dairy: 

When dairy cows eat grains in lieu of their natural diet of grass, they often become malnourished and weak. This leads to dairy products that contain fewer nutrients and (even worse) traces of the added hormones and antibiotics from their feed. ⁠

On the flip side, grass-fed cows are eating what they were intended to eat and they aren’t forced to produce more milk than they are naturally capable of producing, allowing for an optimal concentration of nutrients. These nutrients are then passed from the grass-fed dairy products we consume to our bodies, which helps us nourish ourselves and our families. 

Read on to learn more about the top three unexpected health benefits of ghee you’ll receive when you incorporate this delicious, golden ingredient into your daily routine! 


1. Grass-fed ghee has a higher dose of fat-soluble vitamins

Among its many superior benefits, studies have shown grass-fed dairy products, like 4th & Heart ghee, to have a higher content of vitamins A, D and E and K. 

  • Vitamin A – Important for normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction. Vitamin A also helps the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly.
  • Vitamin D – Nutrient that is needed for health and to maintain strong bones. It does so by helping the body absorb calcium from food and supplements. 
  • Vitamin E – Acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy.
  • Vitamin K – Important for blood clotting and healthy bones, especially for those taking blood thinners. 


2. Grass-fed ghee contains heart-healthy CLA

Grass-fed dairy contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a heart-healthy fatty acid. Studies have shown that grass-fed, pasture-raised dairy products have up to five times more CLA than their grain-fed counterparts. 

Additionally, research concludes that CLA bolsters the immune system and has anti-inflammatory properties to help your body resist infections, inflammatory disorders, autoimmune disease and even allergies! 


3. Grass-fed ghee has an ideal balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids

While the perfect balance of omega-3s to omega-6s is still up for debate, experts agree that a healthy ratio seems to be between 2:1 and 4:1. However, the average American diet contains a ratio that may be as high as 20:1, favoring the more inflammatory omega-6s. Grass-fed cows get their omega-3s from grass, while grain-fed cows feed on grains like corn which are high in the omega-6s and contain barely any omega-3s. Choosing grass-fed dairy products like 4th & Heart ghee is an easy step anyone can take toward intaking the correct balance of fatty acids for a healthier you.


Cooking and baking with 4th & Heart grass-fed ghee is a simple step you and your family can take to ensure you’re getting the most out of your daily meals.
