The benefits of ghee include its ability to effectively penetrate the cell walls of the body, and its ability to keep stored fats from turning into plaque, and even protecting skin cells from damage. Organic ghee is derived from organic fats and does not contain any synthetic chemicals, preservatives, or additives. Here are some health benefits of ghee - 1. The main fat-soluble vitamins found in ghee include vitamin A, D, E and K. Vitamin A is needed for good vision and healthy skin. Vitamin A helps improve your immunity against infectious disease, so eat it on a regular basis.

Vitamin K helps maintain your immune system and helps with the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect. 2.
