Butter also contains Butyrate, which decreases gut permeability having a positive effect on heart disease. Butyrate is also responsible for large decreases in inflammation. CLA; conjugated linoleic acid is responsible for reducing fat.
For the bonus round, grass-fed butter is packing significant amounts of Vitamin A—as retinol, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K2, trace minerals, and a perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.
