About Pharmacological EffectsThe list of actions below have not be approved by the FDA and should not be used to treat a medical condition.
Ghee for Weight LossGhee is butter that has been clarified in an easy process, eliminating the hard-to-digest, cholesterol-forming milk solids.
Ghee for DeficiencyGhee is one of the most important medicines in Ayurveda because it is easy to digest and ojas building. Rich with the power of ojas, ghee is excellent for building strong, hearty tissue. Consuming ghee helps the body to become more tender and nourishes depleted tissue. Ghee is a rasayana (tonic) for sexual organs and an aphrodisiac. This superfood reaffirms the healing power of fats to skeptics. For instance, a little bit of fats calms the liver when it is deficient, and comforts the nervous system by supporting the myelin sheath.
Ghee for CleansingGhee is useful in cleansing and in the detoxifying process of panchakarma because it pulls fat-soluble toxins into circulation. It also improves fat metabolism. Ghee in the duodenum reduces acid secretion, aiding hyper-acidic related digestive disorders.

Dear John, Is it better to cook with ghee or to add in the end of cooking? I toss the spaces on dry pan and than cook with water or steaming. Does cooking in ghee cause weight gain?
