Humans are nature, and there is nothing in nature that can harm us if made and consumed mindfully. Ghee is an essential part of age-old Ayurveda. It has incredible healing properties that can’t be found in another kitchen ingredient. Today we will read everything about A2 ghee, which has lost its importance over time.
What is A2 Ghee?
The native cows of India that belong to the Bos Indicus species are domesticated, and the milk of these native cows is used to extract A2 ghee. A2, simply put, is a protein that is present only in the milk of our native cow species. This same protein is also present in human milk.
After the milk is derived from the native cow, it’s used to make ghee using a traditional method called the hand-churned Bilona process.
Benefits of A2 Ghee
Praakritik Cow Ghee is a treasure trove of nutrients. It offers vitality, good health, and makes us glow naturally. It is lactose-free, as the milk solids that carry the lactose are already removed while producing the ghee. Hence, even lactose-intolerant people can easily consume A2 ghee without any side effects. There are many other benefits that can be derived from A2 ghee. Let’s go through them in detail.
- Immunity Booster
A2 ghee carries butyric acid, which binds our immune system together, making it strong. A2 ghee also increases the production of T cells. These T cells fight allergens in the gut. Hence, consuming A2 ghee regularly can make us strong internally. It is even more important to include it in children's diets to strengthen the foundation of their growth.
- Weight Management
At Praakritik, you get A2 ghee from grass fed cows. It’s purely organically sourced, which ensures that our A2 ghee has a high amount of conjugated linolenic acid (CLA). The presence of CLA ensures that the process of fat loss is accelerated.
- Nutritional warehouse
As we know, A2 ghee is produced from the milk of native cows and offers various micro- and macronutrients. It is a rich source of essential vitamins like Vitamin B1, B6, B12, C, K, and E, as well as tonnes of antioxidants. It is also the source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
- Helps with digestion
A2 ghee aids in digestion as it helps in the secretion of digestive acids in the stomach. It also breaks down the food and assists in removing the toxins. The consistent use of A2 also helps in increasing the rate of absorption.
- Ghee for Heart Health
The presence of healthy fatty acids like omega 6 and omega 3 lowers the levels of bad cholesterol and helps boost heart health. If taken in moderation, then A2 Ghee can be consumed daily and will add to the good fat in your diet.
- Bone health
The consistent use of A2 works on inflammation. It prevents bone degeneration and makes the bone strong. One must use A2 regularly for easy lubrication of joints to avoid joint issues at an early age.
- Hydrates the skin
A2 ghee helps keep our skin nourished from within. This is reflected on our skin, and our skin becomes moisturised due to the presence of fatty acids. People who consume ghee can also see radiance on their faces, as it’s all due to the healthy fats.
The benefits of A2 ghee are endless, so here are a few more points that must be considered as you choose to consume A2 ghee.
- It's great to make your food tasty.
- Nutritionally dense for children
- enhances the rate of food absorption
- Great for all, from kids to the elderly, to consume
- It is versatile, thereby one can use it in any food item while cooking or as a nutritious topping on khichdi, dal, etc.

With these countless benefits, no one can really say no to A2 ghee. However, we believe that you should first trust yourself, so try a 30- or 60-day A2 ghee challenge and see how your body, skin, and lifestyle change. An organic food source can never go wrong. We believe nature heals nature, so we as humans must try to choose as many organic and natural food sources as possible. Choose foods you consume consciously, as whatever we eat today becomes a part of us after consumption.
