Five amazing benefits of Ghee

Ghee, also known as ‘clarified butter’ is made by cooking unsalted butter, which is made from cream. It then splits into a liquid and solid component. Liquid is drained and residue is stored which is our ‘ghee’. Here are a few benefits of it,

Helps in weight loss

Yes, you read perfectly right. Use ghee every morning so that you get all the important nutrients you need from a fatty food, but minus the negatives such as free radicals, excessive calories etc.
