    • Zucchini is highly alkaline, which is excellent for acidosis of the liver and blood.  Zucchini is high is magnesium, manganese, potassium, Vitamin C, folate and fiber.

    • Ghee is clarified butter, the oil of butter with the milk solids removed.  Ghee is much less mucus-forming than butter and contains no lactose.  Ghee has a very high smoke point and doesn’t burn easily during cooking.  Ghee’s short chain of fatty acids also metabolized very readily by the body.  Ghee is good for nerves and brain, reduces cholesterol, helps control eye pressure, stimulates stomach acids to help with digestion, promotes learning and increases memory retention and is very rich in antioxidants.
