Is butter coffee healthy? Drink is considered controversial when it comes to health benefits
Butter coffee is particularly popular with people who want to lose weight and stick to a low-carb diet or keto diet, for example. In these diets, the consumption of carbohydrates is reduced or completely dispensed with. The drink is also often consumed in the morning during intermittent fasting, as it keeps you full for a long time. However, when it comes to the health benefits, butter coffee is a controversial beverage. Thus, it is often criticized by experts for its lack of nutritional content and high excessive consumption of saturated fatty acids.
This is because a diet high in saturated fat is said to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and cholesterol levels. In addition, butter coffee is a real calorie bomb. In order to really lose weight, a change in diet is necessary. In addition, some people reported that they suffered from gastrointestinal problems after consuming butter coffee. Due to the high percentage of fat, the drink can be difficult for some people to digest.
