Good news for anyone looking to add some healthy fat to their diet: Bulletproof coffee products are 20 percent off today on Amazon.
A quick lesson: Bulletproof coffee combines the caffeinated beverage you love with the extra fat loved by those who follow a keto diet. The rich, buttery drink is thicker than the usual cup of Joe, given that in addition to coffee grounds it includes grass-fed unsalted butter and medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) coconut oil. The unique blend of fat and caffeine creates a creamy and filling drink that fans claim provides oodles of energy.
The official Bulletproof brand sells the coffee in a ton of different ways: in pods, beans, cold brews and more. Which means you can snag the yummy drink in a way the best fits your lifestyle. The pre-made drink is an easy grab and go. Keurig lovers can use their usual pods and traditional coffee practicers can stick to their Mr. Coffee machines to blend up the whole-bean product on any morning.
This stuff can cost a lot if you purchase it at health foods stores or coffee shops. To save some dough, buying the product and making it at home is your best option. This way, you can concoct it the way you like and bring it with you on the go. (For those who commute, this spill-proof mug will keep your drink safe and warm).
Benefits of BulletProof coffee
If you’re on a high-fat, low-carb diet like keto, this drink can be a game changer. Created originally by scientist Dave Asprey, bulletproof coffee works best when you drink it on an empty stomach. Think of it like a meal replacement — it’s very high in fat and in calories.
Performance dietician Jessica Spendlove told HuffPost that the proposed health benefits mostly involve weight loss and increased energy levels.
"It also claimed to improve cognitive function and boost metabolism,” she says.
(For those who don’t typically consume a high-fat diet, be cautionary. This could cause an upset stomach. Ease into the products by making small cups in the beginning and building up your consumption.)
What (famous) fans are saying
Because the mix is so nutrient-heavy, athletes love it. Super Bowl LII Champion and MVP Quarterback, Nick Foles is a longtime fan of the drink.
"I notice a tangible and positive difference in how I perform when I use Bulletproof products,” Foles said in a statement. “I’ve been making hundreds of cups of Bulletproof Coffee for teammates and coaches for years now, and have turned them into loyal fans of the brand, because they too felt a difference in their physical and mental wellbeing.”
