In this Bulletproof Coffee review we will take a closer look at what it is, the ingredients you need to make it and some vital benefits of drinking it. Oh, and don’t forget this wouldn’t be an informative review if we didn’t tell you about any pitfalls of drinking bulletproof coffee, so we have included what we feel is the most important one of those for you too!
Let’s get started…
So first up what exactly is bulletproof coffee?
In a nutshell, bulletproof coffee is simply a recipe that was created by Dave Asprey an American entrepreneur, businessman and author. The drink consists of “upgraded” black coffee that’s also blended with grass-fed butter and also brain octane oil for maximum cognitive function! Asprey claims that the drink helps with weight loss and boosts cognitive performance, so if you think this sounds good so far you’re probably wondering what the recipe is which leads us nicely on to our next section.
What’s the recipe for bulletproof coffee?
If you’re thinking of giving bulletproof coffee a taste you’re going to need the following recipe:
- 2 cups (500 ml) of black Upgraded™ Coffee (Upgraded Coffee is the result of an obsessive pursuit to find the absolute highest performance coffee beans on earth)
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) of unsalted grass-fed butter (or more, up to 80 grams of butter)
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) of MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides)
- Blend (ideally in a high-speed blender) until the oil emulsifies and it looks like a latte.
Ok, so now you know what bulletproof coffee is, and you have the recipe to start making it, but you’re probably thinking what the main uses are the benefits of drinking it and just as importantly what if any are the downsides of bullet proof coffee?
Let’s move on and find out…
Why choose bulletproof coffee?
Asprey says that the MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides) in bulletproof coffee can help with your mental acuity and increase energy levels.
The combined ingredients give you long lasting fat burning energy throughout the day and his upgraded coffee beans are carefully produced and tested with new and old methods to target the lowest toxin content vs. normal coffee.
What are the benefits of drinking bulletproof coffee?
When drinking regular coffee most people at some stage may have felt the effects of crankiness, headache or even jitters, but it turns out not all coffee is created the same.
The problem is when coffee is processed mold forms on the coffee and a chemical called the biogenic amine also forms, upgraded coffee has been engineered to be free of those and the results are an upgraded performance every single day.

Are there any pitfalls of drinking bulletproof coffee?
If you are thinking of trying bulletproof coffee, or your already a regular drinker then we are going to include here what we personally think could be the most important pitfall of bulletproof coffee.
Coffee has been researched and shown to reduce hunger signals. People who eat a light meal after drinking bulletproof coffee may do so because they don’t feel very hungry due to the reduced hunger signals mentioned above.
If not careful, people may unknowingly under-eat so bare this in mind if you become or you are already a bulletproof coffee drinker and remember to do your own due diligence before making any personal dietary changes that are not fully tested and relatively new to the market.
