All those who are born in 1950 to 1980 have consumed Dalda and Refined oils from their teenage to now. So they still have stronger bones. But all those who were born in 1990 onwards have actually lived their entire life on Refined Oil and no to very little Ghee for last 25 years! Well, fortunately, our body is like a magic box. It renews skin cells in 27 days, blood in 120 days and bones in 8 to 11 months! (Count of days should not be taken literally but they are approximate days.) So they can still change their body constituents if they start today. Now think of all the kids who are born in the last 10 to 15 years! They not only did not eat ghee but ate refined oils like canola, sunflower, soybean, refined maida, corn syrup, chemicals in Coke/ Pepsi, GMO soybeans, and hormone injected meat! Yeah, your children and my children. 🙁
Let’s take the oath to undo the harm we have done to our children unknowingly by starting with eating GHEE.
How eating Ghee helps your child’s bones and skin?
Ghee is saturated fat and rich in providing good HDL, a type of Cholesterol. Refined oil and hydrogenated oils increase bad LDL, the bad cholesterol. Ghee contains Omega 3 and Omega 9, vitamins A, D, E and K. Ghee made from organic butter of pastured cows is one of the highest natural sources of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid).
Remember photosynthesis? Just like plants need sunlight to convert chlorophyll into food needed by the plants to grow so do we need the sunlight for the growth of our body.
How does cholesterol help the bone growth of your children?
- When sunlight falls on the skin, it converts cholesterol into Vit D.
- Then this Vit D with the help of Omega 3, magnesium and Vit K2 takes calcium from your food to your bones.
- Consider Vit D as the boat which needs magnesium, Omega 3 and Vit K2 as it’s oars to carry Calcium to your bones.
Low cholesterol will cause weak bones, suicidal tendencies, memory loss, low concentration, loose motion, big tummy, pain in specific places, moles and bumps under the skin.
Cholesterol is actually one of the essential fats that you and your child must have in your body! It is not BAD. It is the TRANS FAT that is the real villain.
Food that contains Vit D are Ghee, Butter, Egg yolks, Cod liver oil, Fatty fish, cheese
Food that contains Omega 3 are Ghee, Butter, Egg yolks, Spinach, Indian spices, flaxseed oil, walnuts, fatty fish, seafood.
Food that contains Vit K2 are Ghee, Butter, Egg yolks, Fermented Food, Animal Based food.
Food that contains Magnesium are Kaju, Indian Spices, dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, curd, bananas, dried fruit.
Do you see which food has everything needed to make your bones strong?
very informative post. Do u recommend some one in his 50s to eat cow ghee , with history of blocked artery? sach me bina ghee laga roti khae jamana ho gya hai.

Well the reason you have blocked arteries is because you have been not eating Ghee which actually has good cholesterol HDL. HDL are larger in size and hence do not get stuck on the inside of the walls. But LDL and VLDL are very tiny hence they start getting accumulated inside walls building up into blockages.
The trick is to stop all refined oils. Use mustard or groundnut or til or coconutnfor cooking. Get them from a local mill where they use pressing method to take oil.
Then when you eat daal or roti add 1 tsp of ghee made at home.
Ghee from bazaar has these poor quality refined oil mix which is no good.
Do not cross more than 2 tsp ghee per day for 1 month and no refined oil.
Check your blood profile.
And let me know.
Warning. I am not a doctor but a very well read mom.
