Is ghee good?

Ghee and its benefits

Yes, but in moderation. Test-tube and animal studies suggest that butyric acid in ghee may reduce inflammation and promote gut health. It’s also slightly higher in conjugated linoleic acid, a polyunsaturated fat that may help increase fat loss. But do not exceed more than 2 tsp (10 gms) per day as it is a saturated fat. Over consumption will lead to increase in LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and the formation of oxidized cholesterol.
