It helps to eliminate some allergy and protect us from various chronic disease. It helps to improve our eye health. Strengthen our immune system. Ghee contain some amount of Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Vitamin D. Ghee is a good fat that body needs fat to function. Omega - 3s  (monounsaturated fats) are healthy forms of fat that can be found in ghee and it has positive health benefits in the body. It is also a good energy booster. You should also know that you should consume ghee in smaller quantity.
