Also known as butter coffee or keto coffee, Bulletproof coffee is an energizing brew that's ideal for anyone who needs a steady and lasting source of energy minus the high-carb meal in the morning. Low-carb diet enthusiasts swear by this coffee's ability to reduce appetite, boost energy, promote weight loss, among other benefits.
How Do You Bulletproof a Cup of Coffee?
While there are variations, the original recipe states that bulletproof coffee is a low-carb, high-fat beverage containing the following ingredients;
1. Organic Coffee: On its own, coffee has impressive health benefits from improving cognition to boosting energy, aiding in weight loss, maximizing fitness efforts, boosting metabolism, and much more.
2. MTC Oil: The backbone of this unique coffee is essentially high-quality MTC oil, more specifically coconut or palm kernel oil, to provide healthy fats. MTCs metabolize faster in the body, making them ideal for providing quick and sustained energy during workouts, boosting weight loss, improving cognitive functioning.
3. Unsalted Butter or Ghee — Also known as clarified butter, ghee has gained a lot of traction as a healthier source of vitamins, antioxidants, and healthy fats. Butter contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), which is excellent for weight loss and reducing body fat.
The cannabis plant contains over 100 chemical compounds, including the non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) and the psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

While additional research is needed, CBD may offer promising benefits in treating various types of chronic pain, migraine, and inflammation due to arthritis. So, knowing what you know now, would you consider adding a few drops of CBD to your cup of joe for that much-needed early morning jumpstart?
