|Antioxidants||*Vitamin E||Vitamin K2|
|Wulzen factor: hormone-like substance known to prevent arthritis and joint stiffness (destroyed by pasteurization)||*Fatty acids, especially short- and medium-chain in the perfect omega-3 to omega-6 balance||*CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid): anti-cancer agent, muscle builder, and immunity booster|
|Vitamin D||Minerals, including selenium, manganese, chromium, zinc, and copper||Iodine in a highly absorbable form|

|*The highest amounts of CLA and omega-3 fats come from cows raised on grass pastures. Their butter is also 50 percent higher in vitamins A and E, and 400 percent higher in beta-carotene, giving grass-fed butter its deeper yellow color.|
