    Ghee and K2

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I have been controlling my lymphocytic colitis for years now using a dairy free diet. The one nutrient I think I miss because of this is K2 Mk4, as I understand it is only found in the dairy of ruminants.

    Over the last year or two the colitis has been effectively non-existent, and a couple of challenges have shown I can eat 'normal' quantities of dairy and the only ill effect is a little sinus congestion. The fear of the colitis returning is too great for me to become a daily dairy eater, but I am considering adding in Ghee more regularly. Ghee has very little lactose or casein, so it is much less likely to cause a reaction.

    What do you think of this plan? Does Ghee have enough K2 to make it worthwhile?

    Tough to say. I've actually never seen a measured quantity, just the obscure reference that it is a good source when the cattle where grass fed..... however, if you want therapeutic levels you may be better off looking into "high vitamin butter oil".

    Here is a reputable one Butter Oil - Green Pasture

    Thanks for that suggestion. There is even a local mail order company so I don't have to face import pain.

    At about $1 a day though, it works out quite pricey, and I'm not sure I want to spend that much.
