Even though Ghee has a lot of health benefits, it is not for everyone.

Ghee is one of the healthiest everyday foods according to Ayurveda. It has amazing benefits like –

  • Anti-ageing
  • Good for eye health
  • Improves intellect and memory
  • Improves digestion
  • Improves Ojus (vitality)
  • Improves skin health


However, Ghee is not for everyone. It has some contradictions.

Ghee is ‘guru’

It is heavy to digest. If you are someone with chronic indigestion and stomach issues, do not overdo on ghee.

Ghee is Kapha increasing

It’s not good to consume ghee during fever associated cold and cough.

If you are pregnant

Pregnant women should avoid Ghee if they have a cold or an upset stomach.

Diseases of the liver or spleen

Ghee should be avoided in ALL diseases of the liver and spleen.
