Butter in moderation can be good for you

Certain foods have gotten a bad rap when it comes to our health but Wellness Expert Peggy Hall says one of those foods is butter and you will be happy to hear it can actually be good for you.

Peggy says the moderation is key. Real butter is an excellent source of vitamins A&D which are essential for a strong immune system and your hair, skin nails, moods and metabolism all benefit from butter.

What some people know is that vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin which means it needs a little bit of fat in order to be absorb by your body. Green beans for example are an excellent source of vitamin A but your body cannot use them unless there's a little bit of fat that goes along.

Butter is also an anti-inflammatory. It's a complete source of amino acids and it's high in calcium. It is the perfect balance of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
