6 Reasons Why Butter Isn’t That Bad
We’ve been told some nasty things about butter, now I can’t even look at it without a tingling of guilt rushing up through my body. The little yellow block is so versatile that people use it in borderline anything, but in the back of our minds we conjure images of obesity and clogged arteries. But is that reaction necessary? Is it even correct?
Times change, and better understandings come with that. Butter is no different. We’re now gaining more insights into dairy products and butter especially, learning that it’s not all that bad and, in some circumstances can be very good. While it does still have that high level of saturated fat, Huffington Post are presenting us with more facts in butters favor:

One tablespoon of butter contains 7 percent and 2 percent of your daily values (DV) of vitamins A and D, respectively. Plus, because both vitamins are fat soluble, butter is a prime vehicle for aiding absorption of nutrients in the body.
And that’s only the beginning. It also reduces symptoms of diabetes, fights cancer, keeps your bones strong, and more. Check out the rest of the post for all the welcome benefits of our buttery friend.
