Mamas, raise your hands if you’re reaching for that second cup of coffee. Okay, maybe you’re on your third or fourth, but we won’t tell...
We understand that sleep deprivation is real, and you’re looking for energy to power through your day. So, a Majka Booster Bulletproof Coffee might be just what you need. This is Majka’s version of the buzz-worthy Bulletproof Coffee.
It’s filled with healthy fats and boosted with Majka’s Vanilla Chai Booster Powder. With this recipe, you’ll get all the benefits of a Bulletproof Coffee, plus plenty of antioxidants and galactagogues for lactation support to help you thrive as a new mom.
What is Bulletproof Coffee?
Bulletproof Coffee is a trendy drink started by David Asprey. It’s a mix of coffee, grass-fed butter or ghee, and pure MCT oil. This combination is meant to be a breakfast replacement that comes with numerous benefits, including:
- Sustained energy without the crash
- Mental clarity
- A good source of antioxidants
Bulletproof coffee has just recently entered the health world, so there isn’t much research on actual Bulletproof coffee (yet). But, there are well-researched studies on its individual ingredients, including the benefits of adding good fats to your diet.
The MCT oil in Bulletproof Coffee is a unique fat, and it’s the main reason for the drink’s energy-boosting benefits. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are metabolized differently than long-chain triglycerides found in most other fat sources.
MCTs are rapidly broken down and easily absorbed by the body to use as instant energy, rather than being stored as fat.
The grass-fed butter or ghee in this recipe provides the body with omega-3 fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), beta-carotene, antioxidants, and fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K.
Ghee, also known as clarified butter, is more concentrated than butter because water and milk solids have been removed. This also makes ghee a more tolerable option for people with lactose or casein sensitivities.
Is Bulletproof Coffee Healthy for New Moms?
As a new mom, we understand what it’s like to feel tired and lacking energy on a daily basis. Maybe you’re craving your morning cup of coffee, but you’re questioning if it’s even okay to drink?
Rest assured, it’s safe for breastfeeding moms to consume up to 300 mg of caffeine per day. An average 8 oz cup of coffee contains between 95 and 165 mg of caffeine. So, mom’s can typically consume 2 to 3 cups of coffee safely, depending on the strength of the drink.
But, instead of reaching for your typical black coffee or sugar-filled latte that comes with unwanted side effects — like feeling jittery or having a blood sugar crash — opt for a Bulletproof Coffee. This tasty, creamy drink can help provide you with energy that lasts.
Healthy fats are so important for new moms, especially when breastfeeding. Breast milk is made up of mostly fats, which provides the main source of energy for your baby. The exact amount of fat in breast milk varies based on each mom's diet.
However, medium chain triglycerides — found in MCT oil — are an important type of fat typically found in breast milk.
MCT Oil and Breastfeeding
Consuming MCT oil can increase the amount of MCT in breast milk. Certain types of MCTs, like lauric acid and capric acid, can protect against infection and support your baby’s immune system.
Newborn baby’s immune systems do not fully develop until they are six months old. This means their only protection against everyday viruses comes via the lauric acid present in their mother’s breast milk.
Benefits of Ghee
Ghee is slightly higher in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a polyunsaturated fat that has been shown to have some benefits, like weight loss, lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes, and minimizing the onset of some cancers.
The Benefit of Using Majka Lactation Booster Powder
Making Bulletproof coffee with Majka’s Lactation Booster takes this already beneficial drink to the next level. The Booster adds a delicious flavor, antioxidants, and lactation support to your Bulletproof Coffee.
The ingredients in the Majka’s Lactation Booster have well-researched antioxidant properties that can reduce inflammation. Stress, lack of sleep, and environmental stressors can tax the body and cause an inflammatory response.
For breastfeeding moms, the Majka Lactation Booster can help support lactation and postpartum life by helping increase milk supply, while providing healthy fats and antioxidants.
How to Enjoy A Majka Booster Bulletproof Coffee
Traditional Bulletproof Coffee is meant to be a breakfast replacement, ranging from 250 to 500 calories. However, we recommend making our modified Bulletproof Coffee and enjoying it prior to a balanced meal or as a snack.
If you’d like to enjoy your Bulletproof Coffee in the morning, we recommend having this filling drink within the hour of waking up. Then, follow up a few hours later with a balanced breakfast of protein, complex carbohydrates, and a variety of vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables.
