Organically raised cows are bred without pesticides or drugs and are also kept in relatively humane conditions compared to non organically raised cows. Opting to organic butter may help reduce exposure to harmful chemicals.
Nutritional Profile – One cup of butter contains more than 1,600 calories, all from fat and should be eaten in moderation.

Health Benefits – Butter is mainly composed of fats, not all of which are harmful, and many of which are essential to human health. Butter contains high level of carotene, nutrient that contributes to health in two ways, either turning into antioxidants, or converting into vitamin A. These antioxidants are anti-infectious and can provide a boost to your immune system, while vitamin A benefits the skin, eyes, mouth, throat, as well as the urinary and digestive tracts. High levels of vitamin A can improve your defenses against respiratory infections, as well as autoimmune diseases like AIDS. Butter also contains glycosphingolipids, a special type of fatty acid that can protect your body against a number of gastrointestinal issues and conditions, by contributing to the mucus layers along the membrane and making it more difficult for bacterial infections to bind to functioning receptors. Therefore, adding butter to your diet can increase your defenses in your stomach and digestive tracts. Butter contains HDL cholesterol, also considered “good” cholesterol. This omega-3 fatty acid actually reduces the presence of omega-6 fatty acid (“bad” cholesterol) which can clog up arteries and lead to atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke.Butter contains a rare hormone-like substance that can only be found in butter and cream. It is called the Wulzen Factor, and it protects people from calcification of the joints, which leads to arthritis.
Important fact– Organic butter does have good cholesterol, and also higher levels of good cholesterol than what is found in processed butter and margarine. Despite the health benefits of butter, it is important not to forget that it is still composed mainly of fats.
