Healthier than most cooking oil: Cooking in polyunsaturated oils at high temperatures leads to emission of peroxides and other free radicals. Ghee being molecularly stabilized by saturated bonds and High Smoke Point (250 C) does not form thefree radicals, yielding in healthier dish.

Leads to better digestion: Fats and oils generally hamper the digestive procedure by getting stacked in the stomach and slowing down the assimilation process. Ghee, on the other hand, promotes secretion of required acids in the stomach, leading to faster digestion.
Strengthens immune system: Abundance of anti-oxidants in ghee facilitate absorption of essential minerals and vitamins yielding in a better immune system. It also contains high amounts of butyric acid that heals the gut and prevents cancerous tumors with its anti-viral properties.
