Bulletproof Coffee causing ulcerative colitis to flare up
I've been trying hard to figure out why this is so, but making bulletproof coffee exactly as it is supposed to be made inflames my colon and can put me into a flare over a week or so of daily use. Yes I use the BP beans, GF butter and I slowly increased the amount of octane oil until I got to 1 tbs per drink. I'm on several gut healing supplements and take good quality probiotics. I also follow a lower carb SCD version of the paleo diet. I've tried many modifications to the BP coffee to try and make it work for me - like I've used ghee and/or coconut oil instead of the butter and octane oil. I've made it weaker too. It doesn't matter what I do! Along with the increased gut inflammation, I start getting extremely tired and foggy about an hour after drinking it. I think it's safe to say that I simply don't tolerate it and need to avoid it completely, but I wasn't sure if I was missing something big here.
