Health Benefits in Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs
#1. Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Strawberries are packed with powerful antioxidants that help reduce oxidative stress and aid in the fight against free radicals.
Grass-fed butter contains a fatty acid called butyric acid, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that contributes to gut health[*].
#2. Supports Heart Health
Antioxidants are packed with antioxidants that help battle oxidative stress. More berries mean less inflammation and better cell health.
According to some data, using various berries, including strawberries — whether, fresh, juiced, freeze-dried, or frozen — can help reduce inflammatory markers and improve LDL oxidation and glucose metabolism[*].
It makes sense that berries are good for your heart, but butter?
Grass-fed butter (as opposed to conventional butter or margarine) is packed with nutrients, including anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K2.
Vitamin K2 is an essential nutrient that you only get in large amounts in foods like butter and organ meats.
K2 helps to usher calcium into your bones where it belongs, as opposed to staying in your arteries, where calcium can harden and lead to Atherosclerosis[*].
#3. Builds Stronger Bones
While dairy isn’t universally accepted as a health food, the right kinds of dairy can provide you with hefty amounts of protein, calcium, and fat.
Organic cream cheese and butter from grass-fed cows contain more nutrients than conventionally-raised cows.
Organic dairy can improve your bone mineralization and lower your risk of fracture and osteoporosis, especially as you age[*].
Grass-fed butter and other organic dairy products also contain vitamin K2, which is known for helping shuttle calcium from your bloodstream into your bones where it belongs. This means stronger bones and healthier arteries for you.
If you don’t have a known dairy allergy or intolerance, you should be fine with a few servings of dairy per day.
