Butter oil contains “Activator X”
Butter has some pretty impelling qualities to
warrant its inclusion in our diet:
Butter is a stable,
fat and the best source of fat-soluble vitamins -
A (retinol, needed
by the thyroid gland and for good vision), D, K and E.
THE “PRICE FACTOR”
- Vitamin Absorption Catalyst in Butter from pastured cows -
Dr Weston Price, who studied diets of isolated peoples around the
world, found that
deep yellow butter from pasture fed cows is very high in all fat-soluble
which he determined to be catalysts
needed for the metabolic assimilation of water-soluble vitamins found in
vegetables, grains and meat.
disappears if cows are fed cotton-seed
or high protein soy diets, but
does survive pasteurization.
Butter and cream from pasture-fed cows
are a delicious addition to our diet
to ensure effective assimilation of
minerals and water-soluble vitamins.
Contains short and
medium chain fatty acids that the body uses for energy -Butyric
and Lauric fatty acids are also anti-fungal, antimicrobial and
prevent tumor formation.
intestines with a fat source needed to convert plant carotenes into vitamin A
EFA’s are in small, but equal balance in butter
Contains CLA (highest level is
from pasture-fed cows) - shown to have strong anti-cancer properties.
- to assist breakdown and assimilation of
cholesterol and fats.
Contains TRACE MINERALS - manganese, zinc,
chromium, selenium (rich source, powerful antioxidant,
needed for thyroid gland), iodine (protects against goiter in mountainous
THE “WULZEN FACTOR” -
in raw butter, cream and whole milk, but
“anti-stiffness” factor protects humans/animals from degenerative arthritis,
hardening arteries, cataracts.
Calves fed pasteurized or skim milk will not thrive until raw butterfat is
added back into their diet.
Today unfortunately, obtaining raw
butter is a challenge.
Where to find good pastured, organic butter? –
the following are good sources,
but from pasteurized rather than preferred raw milk
(may be able to find locally):
Made with milk from
100% pasture-fed cows
Irish Kerrygold ® butter
Made with milk from
cows that are mostly pasture-fed:
Natural by Nature®
Enjoy it! - claims that “time-tested” butter causes chronic high cholesterol
values have not been substantiated by research, so go ahead and enjoy it - fry
with it, spread it on your bread and drizzle it over your vegetables!
Butter can be kept frozen to extend shelf-life
Butter Oil (Ghee) from cows grazing on fast-growing
grass contains “Activator X”
“Activator X” now known to be Vitamin K2 (MK-4)
– “For Koagulation and Kalcium”
significant immune system builder -
Dr. Weston Price, who
studied the health/nutrition connection in native diets world-wide in the
1930’s/40’s, identified “Activator X” as a significant immune system
builder, through its exponential affect on the body’s utilization of minerals.
He found that “Activator X” is in extraordinarily high levels in high-vitamin
butter oil made from centrifuged, deep-yellow butter fat produced by cows
grazing exclusively on rapidly growing grass.
Centrifuged Butter -
produces a butter-oil concentrate with a solid
layer beneath it, the oil being much richer in “Activator X” than whole butter.
Synergistic effect between “Activator X” and cod liver oil - often called out to dying or sick people, Dr. Price found that cod liver oil
in conjunction with “Activator X’,
in butter oil had a remarkable, synergistic, health-restoring effect on numerous
conditions, which was not as obvious when using them separately. This protocol
also yielded very positive restorative results on dental caries, according to
several case histories cited in his book “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”.
Synergistic benefit is attained by taking ½ tsp. / day of concentrated butter
oil concurrently with a cod liver oil supplement
Quality butter oil (E.g. X-Factor Gold by Green Pastures®)
has many other beneficial properties -
A few of these benefits are highlighted here:
(Wulzen Factor) - protects against degenerative arthritis
(calcification of the joints), cataracts, and hardening of the arteries.
against gastrointestinal infections - especially in the very young and the
12-15% Short /Medium
length-Chain Fatty Acids -
absorbed directly from the small intestine to
the liver to be converted into instant energy (does not need to be emulsified by
bile salts). These fatty acids also have antimicrobial, anti-tumor and
Highly protective lauric acid is not found in
other animal fats - and is made only by the
mammary gland, not in the liver like other saturated fats. Lauric acid increases
heart-protective HDL cholesterol. We can obtain small amounts of lauric acid in
butterfat or large amounts in coconut oil.
Butyric acid is essentially unique to butter, has
both antifungal and anti-tumor properties -
and is also an important energy
source for the cells lining the colon.
