Ayurvedic ghee is a powerful and potent supplement when it’s authentic. Authentic ghee can balance your doshas, aid is nutrient assimilation, and boost ojas for overall health and vitality. In this article we’re going to explain the importance and distinction of authentic Ayurvedic ghee and let you know what to look for when trying to purchase genuine Ayurvedic ghee online.
How It’s Made
When you buy ghee, it’s important to make sure it’s been made according to traditional Ayurvedic methods. The highest quality Ayurvedic ghee will result from cultured milk (dadhi) that is separated, then further cultured, boiled and separated to create Ghruta (clarified lipid). Ghee which is hand-crafted and slowly cooked in this process will result in the best flavor and the most nutrients. It will also have the highest energetic properties.
Quality of Ingredients
Ghee is made from cow milk, so you want to make sure that you’re getting it made from the best cow milk possible. Ayurvedic ghee is made from Indian Gir cows. It’s believed that the prominent hump on Gir cows harnesses solar energy, illuminating the organs and fluids with gold-bearing rays. This results in an energetically and spiritually powerful substance. Most of the ghee made in the Western world comes from Jersey cows, which do not have a hump and produce A1 milk, which contains difficult to digest proteins.
In addition, the best ghee is made from grass-fed and pasture-raised cows. This ensures the resulting milk is organic and free from pesticides, antibiotics, hormones and other harmful toxins.
Quality of Ethics
Possibly the most important thing for anyone buying Ayurvedic ghee online is to look into the ethics involved. In Ayurveda, the best ghee comes from happy cows that are free-range and are only milked by free-will and never by force.
Ethically and sustainably-sourced ingredients help to enhance prana and improve overall quality in a supplement. That’s because according to the Vedas, our food carries memory and imprints of the entire production process (dietary ecosystem). These memories sync with our own memories once we consume food. Therefore the intention and integrity behind the land, farming, people, culture, and habitat are essential to our health.
It’s important to make sure that you know what sort of package your ghee is being delivered in. Ghee is best housed in glass jars with tight-fitting lids. This prevents unwanted chemicals from leaking into the ghee.
