It is rare to find someone who does not enjoy a cup of coffee in some form: iced, black, blended with flavored syrups, and even specialty coffee blends. A new coffee trend claims to boost mental power, suppress cravings, and increase your metabolism.
Bulletproof coffee, also known as butter coffee, was created by Dave Aspey, an entrepreneur from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The coffee was an additional aspect to the bulletproof diet he had previously created. This coffee is made with low-mold coffee beans; grass-fed, unsalted butter; and medium chain triglycerides.
Aspey claims that by having bulletproof coffee daily in conjunction with his bulletproof diet he was able to boost his IQ by 20 points while also losing weight through ketosis. According to him, bulletproof coffee does this by boosting the metabolism into overdrive and burning calories continuously throughout the day. Although not many scientific studies exist to back up his claims, many people who have had great success using Aspey’s bulletproof coffee testify to its effectiveness.
The butter in bulletproof coffee gives it a strong butter smell and a frothy foam like that of melted whipped cream on top of hot chocolate. This coffee has also been used as a breakfast meal replacement.
