Do I Need Bulletproof Coffee?
Have you ever gotten headaches, nausea or stomach pains? Do you find it hard to focus? Have you ever felt stressed or jittery? Have you ever shit yourself in public? Have you ever had nightmares about your old boss and woke up in a pool of your own piss?… You need Bulletproof coffee!
The last two symptoms aren’t exactly scientific – maybe I’m just speaking from personal experience.
Maybe I’m just exagerating for comedic effect. After all this is an advert.
And no one needs Bulletproof coffee, but it is really good!
Toxins ‘n’ Shit
In all seriousness; it is very important that we pay attention to what we put in our bodies and there can be some very serious side-effects to drinking cheap coffee.
In some areas, where coffee beans are grown there are certain funghi, or moulds – which contain “mycotoxins”. If farmers and manufacturers are not careful then this mould can contaminate the coffee and affect the customer. If consumed in high enough doses these toxins can dramatically reduce your mental performance and can have very serious health implications.
There are “upgraded,” low-toxin forms of coffee – such as Bulletproof – which can actually have some serious benefits if taken as part of a balanced diet.
Good coffee is actually a great source of antioxidants; it can improve focus; increase energy; burn fat and even help to prevent some serious dietary problems and illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, liver Cirrhosis and much more.
Bulletproof founder, Dave Asprey, has devised a recipe to maximise those benefits: to give you more energy; make you more focused; to help you burn more fat and lose more weight.
And the beauty is that it’s all done using just 3 ingredients.
- Bulletproof Coffee – Supports regenerative antioxidant processes with minimal levels of mold toxins. Third-party taste-tested to maintain high standards.
- Bulletproof XCT Oil – Distilled from pure coconut oil (16x stronger). Enhances cognitive function and provides a fast, reliable source of energy from fat rather than sugar.
- Organic Grass-fed Butter – Makes the coffee creamy and delicious – also, helps to reduce food-cravings and provides essentential nutrients, vitamins and also HDL (the good cholesterol).
- Start with 8 fl oz of filtered water, fresh off the boil.
- Add 2 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee Beans and brew using your favorite method.
- If you’re new to Bulletproof Coffee, add 1 tsp Bulletproof XCT Oil to 8 oz of hot bulletproof coffee. Gradually increase the amount each day as desired to reach 1-2 tbsp per cup.
- Add 1-2 tbsp grass-fed, unsalted butter.
- Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy.
As Dave Asprey, Bulletproof founder, explains in the video – he is a professional biohacker. He is trained in finding ways to maximise the body’s potential and enhance our mental performance.
What’s so great about Bulletproof coffee is that all of their products are designed for this purpose: Collagen Protein to ensure cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bone; Upgraded Bulletproof Coffee to assist with regenerative antioxidant processes; Upgraded Brain Octane oil to improve mental clarity and boost energy levels… these are just some of the core products among Bulletproof’s ever-expanding product range.
At bulletproof.com you will also find blog articles, videos and podcasts dedicated to biohacking, self-improvement and education on all of these very important issues. I would encourage anyone to check that out.
The Bulletproof Diet
Not only has Dave created a coffee recipe to enhance mental and physical health, he has also created a complete Bulletproof diet plan to: increase focus and performance; increase energy and willpower; and to burn-fat and lose weight with no food cravings.
The Bulletproof Diet Roadmap teaches you how to choose foods that provide the most energy and the most vitamins, yet contain the least amount of performance-robbing, inflammation-causing anti-nutrients and toxins.
“No matter what you eat, it’s somewhere on the Bulletproof Diet Roadmap. Many diets create an all-or-nothing mentality that can make you feel deprived and create guilt when you don’t follow the diet perfectly. That approach can create a negative relationship between you and food, and it can also lead to binges, crashes, etc.”
- The Bulletproof Diet is based on high amounts of healthy fats, moderate amounts of high quality protein, and tons of organic vegetables.
- 50-60% of calories from healthy fats, 20% from protein, and the rest from vegetables.
How To Make Bulletproof Coffee
If you have a blender and 2 minutes of free time in the morning, then you can make Bulletproof coffee. In this video, Dave explains how;
Why All The Hype?
Bulletproof is just one of many companies in a fairly new, ‘trendy’ healthfoods market. They are not the only company to make “upgraded” coffee, or protein, or supplements, or MCT oil, or anything really – but their products certainly work.
What impresses me most about Bulletproof is that they are like the “blueprint” for a successful 21st century company. They focus less on the product and more on the message – be healthy, perform better!
They have a blog, a podcast; they have been on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, The Queen Latifah Show and much more. They are opening a coffee shop – they are growing exponentially! It’s exciting to watch.
And again, it’s not because of the product – it’s about inspiring people and spreading a positive message.
This is an advert, obviously. If you really wanted to make better, healthier coffee then you could just buy some high-grade coffee; mix it with some Coconut Oil and grass-fed butter – it will give a similar effect. What makes Bulletproof Coffee so “Bulletproof” is that they have done a great deal of research in to developing their Brain Octane Oil and they have published so much information on how to get the best results from drinking Bulletproof coffee as part of a healthy diet.
If you are serious about performing better, getting healthy or losing weight – and you are a big coffee drinker – then it is certainly worth trying Bulletproof. But the most important thing is just to do some research on how to eat healthy and get all of the essential oils, proteins, vitamins, nutrients etc that your body needs. Once you know that you can just be careful of what you put in your body and you will see improvements – you don’t need any “products” or “companies” for that.
