    For several decades, people have been convinced that the use of butter has a negative effect on the condition of the coronary vessels. As a result, the product's reputation has been severely damaged, and many have almost stopped including it in their diet, preferring "safer" vegetable fats.

    Meanwhile, recent studies have shown that the health harm of butter is greatly exaggerated: in fact, it has a number of unique properties that make it essential for humans.

    1.Butter is a source of vitamin A

    Retinol (Vitamin A) must be ingested daily. This substance supports the normal functioning of the endocrine glands (in particular, the thyroid and adrenal glands), ensures the health of the eyes, skin, mucous membranes, hair, and nails.

    Vitamin deficiency is manifested by a decrease in immunity, impaired metabolism, loss of vision, and accelerated aging.

    Butter contains vitamin A in the form most convenient for quick absorption and use by the body.

    2. Butter is a storehouse of fatty acids

    Butter is almost 40% oleic acid. According to the most modern data, it helps the body fight cancer cells, improves fat metabolism, and normalizes the amount of cholesterol in the blood.

    The fatty acids that make up the product are actively involved in the processes of cell renewal (including brain cells).

    In addition, without fats, it is impossible to assimilate certain substances that are necessary for a normal life (for example, fat-soluble vitamins A, E, and D) and which a person receives from food.

    3. Reduces hunger and prevents overeating

    Butter is very high in calories. A small bite will quickly feel full and help you avoid overeating.

    The fatty acids contained in the product have another interesting property: they are quickly absorbed in the intestines and immediately used by the body as an energy source.

    In the cold season, a person freezes less if he/she eats a little butter before going outside. It is also indispensable for those who are engaged in hard physical labor.

    For people who want to lose weight, it is especially important that the consumption of the product does not provoke the formation of fatty deposits.

    4. Butter is loaded with antioxidants

    Butter is rich in antioxidants (especially it contains a lot of selenium), which are a recognized means of combating aging of the body, vascular atherosclerosis, and malignant neoplasms.

    5. Butter helps in the treatment of joint diseases

    Butter made from unpasteurized cream contains a specific component - the so-called anti-stiffness factor (Wulzen factor). This substance helps to normalize the condition of the joints in patients with arthritis and arthrosis.

    Besides, this factor increases the elasticity of the vascular walls, which is very important for patients suffering from varicose veins.

    6. Butter is a source of iodine

    Butter must necessarily appear regularly in the diet of people who live far from the sea coast and do not often eat seafood.

    A similar situation is fraught with the occurrence of iodine deficiency in the body and the development of related diseases (in particular, hyperthyroidism and other pathologies of the thyroid gland).

    7. Butter normalizes the digestive tract

    Fatty acids (glycosphingolipids), which are abundant in butter, have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. They prevent pathogens that enter the stomach and intestines from actively multiplying and damaging the mucous membranes.

    It has been found that butter stabilizes the functioning of the large intestine, preventing the development of constipation and diarrhea.

    8. Butter contains high amounts of vitamin K

    This vitamin is essential for the process of hematopoiesis. With its deficiency, the process of blood clotting is disrupted.

    Also, vitamin K is involved in bone building and reduces the risk of osteoporosis and tooth decay.

    9. Butter has an enveloping effect

    Experienced doctors advise patients with gastric ulcer to drink a mixture of strong sweet black tea and a tablespoon of butter on an empty stomach in the morning.

    This provides a triple positive effect: tea contains tannins that disinfect the stomach cavity, sugar delivers glucose necessary for the body, and butter forms a thin layer on the surface of the mucous membrane, which has protective and wound healing properties.

    In the initial stages of the development of the disease, the daily intake of the mixture helps to heal small ulcers located on the walls of the stomach.

    10. Butter contains sodium butyrate

    Sodium butyrate is a salt of butyric acid, small amounts of which, when ingested, increase its susceptibility to insulin and contribute to the normalization of cholesterol metabolism.

    It has been proven that consumers of butter (and it is practically the only food source of this substance) are less likely to become victims of heart attacks, strokes, and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

    Butter is vital for children, adolescents, pregnant and lactating women. For athletes undergoing strenuous physical activity, butter is an irreplaceable source of energy.

    When buying a product, it is very important to pay attention to the conditions in which it is produced.

    The fat content of the product must be at least 82.5%, and the water content in it must not exceed 0.016%. High-quality butter is made only from natural cream and does not include any additives.
