Arachidonic acid (ARA) is a precursor of molecules that play key roles in different immune system functions and it has been shown to be vital in the roper development of infants.
#2: They Pack Disease-Fighting Nutrients
These healthy fats have anti-inflammatory properties, vitamin A, a special type of fatty acid called CLA, and good cholesterol, which all help improve heart health and fight cancer.
#3: They’re Energizing
The keto butter in these bites is made from macadamia, cashews, coconuts and MCT, which provide clean and quick energy.
MCTs (or medium-chain triglycerides) are saturated fats that have the ability to be absorbed immediately by your small intestine without any additional help from digestive enzymes. This allows them to be converted into energy-boosting ketones quickly and efficiently.
