Ghee & its benefits and uses. Back to Basics on A2 Ghee vs A1 Ghee

A2 Ghee or Clarified butter is a trend. Auric brings to you best knowledge on Ghee for everyone. Common myths and infinite positives. Learn more with us.

The philosophy of "Back to Basics" believes that food choices that were true in ancient times are good for us even today. "A diet that is not culturally compliant is a diet that won't last more than two meals", says Rujuta Diwekar @rujuta.diwekar (Celebrity Nutritionist). The ancient wisdom is the only constant in times of daily trends. Let's learn more about Ghee [clarified butter] 

Ghee for Constipation

Ghee when consumed in moderations reduces cholesterol by increasing the contribution of lipids towards metabolism. Ghee helps strengthen your immune system. Further, it keeps constipation at bay by moisturising the body from inside. A common remedy documented in Ayurveda is to drink Milk with ghee before sleeping to help with constipation. And have a spoon of Ghee every morning empty stomach to prevent constipation

Ghee for Immunity

A2 Ghee or any Ghee (also known as Clarified Butter) has numerous benefits. It is known to strengthen Immune System, boost energy levels, reduce inflammation and even maintain heart health. Rich in numerous vitamins, ghee is extremely good for your skin, eyesight and brain health. Anti-inflammation is a foundation for a healthy immune system. Ghee is known to help inflammation in our bodies

Ghee for Coffee

A lot of people have tried replacing oil usage with ghee for a week and they have seen great positive effects on their overall health and energy levels. We will share a secret with you - something we have tried and has worked wonders for us. Our mornings start up with a cup of coffee. Some like to have it with milk and others go Americano! Ghee is full of Good Fat. Like everything else, moderation is the key but not having it entirely because it is unhealthy is a myth. Drinking Milk with Ghee is an age-old practice with so many benefits including improving digestion and metabolism. What if we add it to our beloved coffee! The Twisted Coffee we like to call it! Across the Atlantic Ocean in North America, it is famous as Bulletproof Coffee. Our good friends there are also enjoying the benefits of ancient wisdom. 

Ghee for Navel [Belly Button]

Our Navel is surely an amazing thing. All our veins are connected to our navel, which makes it the focal point of our body. The belly button is life itself. The belly button is not just a tiny dot on your navel but it is a chamber which holds the solution to many health problems. Whatever oil or carrier you choose- be it coconut, mustard or rosemary, it will be useful for you! The easiest thing available in most of the Indian households is Ghee. Ghee is great not only for chapped lips in winter but also for moisturizing the belly button. Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old philosophy and the belly button oiling has been one of the most popular Ayurvedic practices. Do give it a try and see how it enhances your emotions, health and spirituality. If you are looking for specific functional benefits then here are few more best recommendations

- Lemon Oil for reducing pigmentation
- Neem Oil for reducing acne
- Coconut Oil for fertility 

Breaking difference between Ghee and A2 Ghee

A1 cow ghee comes from A1 milk and A2 cow ghee comes from A2 milk. Milk contains a protein called Beta Casein which is also called A1 protein. Therefore, the milk which does not contain A1 protein is A2 milk. A1 protein is known to be harmful to the body specifically, affecting lactose intolerant individuals. This is also the protein which is known to be less digestible than A2 protein
 
The question therefore is how to be sure about buying A2 milk. There are two essential differences - breed of cow and process of ghee extraction. Let’s first understand breed of cow.
 
A1 milk and hence, A1 ghee comes from genetically modified breed of Cow called as Holstein / Jersey cow while A2 milk [also, A2 ghee] comes from primitive form of breed a.k.a Desi Gir cow which was never mutated. Desi Gir cow is generally Indian or African indigenous cows which produce up to 6 litres of milk per day. The Holstein breed of Cow was bred in our pursuit of better productivity & cheaper cost since they can produce up to 20 litres of milk per day. This also explains why A2 Milk and A2 Ghee are more expensive than A1 Milk and A1 Ghee respectively. 
 
Coming to the process of ghee extraction now. A good quality A2 ghee is not only made from A2 milk but also from the traditional Bilon process of Ghee making. Milk is first turned into curd by using a microbe culture. Churn the curd with Bilona Method as mentioned in Ayurveda for hours to separate the butter before boiling it to turn it into ghee. A good quality A2 ghee made using traditional process will be 25 times the cost of 1 litre of A2 Milk. Easy way to identify Best Buy ! 

Ayurveda references Ghee in Charaka Samhita

  1. Ghee increases the sattvic qualities of life.
  2. It allows body and mind, both subtle and gross, to burn with a refined brilliance. A2 Ghee increases Dhi (intelligence), refines the Buddhi (intellect) and improves the Smrti (memory).
  3. Ghee increases Ojas, makes all the organs soft, slow down the ageing process and increases Rasa (the internal juices of the body).

How much our Instagram community (@drinkauric) love Ghee

@delectable.karma
Ghee in everything is what I believe it.... Be it Rice...Phulka or any dish... I prefer to make out of ghee... Plus some extra ghee doesn't harm... apply to dry lips or skin as a moisturizer and for a amazing glow

@raw_sun203
I have been having cow ghee for quite some time now...I have it empty stomach first thing in the morning, also, I enjoy it with my meals. To be honest, I didn't believe it had so many magical benefits.
I Would like to share my story on how it worked for me miraculously.
Helped me get my periods naturally every month which I don't usually get since I have PCOS.
Helped me lose some extra body fat as well as body weight.
Although my skin is not dry still it feels hydrated internally. I guess it will work wonderfully for people with dry skin.
My hair feel less dry and frizzy and more manageable. Cow ghee acts as an excellent conditioner.
Really aided me in constipation.
Last but not the least, my skin feels a bit more glowing.
I am in love with ghee and it has now become an important part of my routine which can never be missed. Tagging my ghee lover buddy

@memoirs_of_a_geetsa
It’s my mother who actually insists I add ghee everywhere since I have a small kid and even use it for low heat cooking instead of oil. She isn’t on Instagram though so I’m tagging @picsbymansi since she also inspires me to do same and use desi ingredients in videsi dishes seamlessly

@prachijadhav01
@drinkauric There are gems grannies and mothers pass on to their kids. Priceless gems. I am not talking of actual jewels here. That’s hardly priceless. I mean the little nuggets of wisdom they pass on, the small hints on how to handle certain things, the pure love with which they share all their secrets. That’s the gem worth treasuring.
Homemade pure Ghee is basically my childhood. I have grown up on homemade ghee. From breakfast lunch every day till the day I left for my post grad.
Pure ghee made from a homemade makkhan. Need of the hour. And such a treasure to have in your kitchen. While I learnt the ghee making at my mom’s knees. It is absolute must haves & extremely beneficial for health. Call it what you may, for me this is gold! My mother

@chrisdme40
Well, I'll not lie over here, but I'm a total ghee-holic (Is that even a word) . A sizzling hot chapati roasted and topped with ghee, wow! While making an omelette too, I use ghee instead of Oil. Umm, and what about the extra fats? I make sure I work out and run more on the field to burn all those fats and later I indulge on yet another feast!

@singh_5757
Ghee is always a healthy thing to eat but what we have to take care is that it's pure. Whenever buying from outside, always check its content. But the good thing for my family is that Maa makes Ghee at home for us. 100% pure! For our healthy selves. And as you know, Maa is always correct!

@thestylish_mom1
I didn't eat ghee till 7 months of pregnancy. After last two months of pregnancy, I started to eat Ghee. I make Ghee at home. Always eat Ghee with Jaggery. We cut in small pieces vasi chapati add ghee and Jaggery. It's very healthy food. I always give natural jaggery with homemade Ghee to my 2 years son in different forms. If we eat ghee jaggery, we never face any health problems in future5
