Many Ask... Why Grassfed?
Grass-fed Beef is lower in fat and cholesterol
Meat from grass-fed animals has up to one-third less fat than grain-fed feed-lot raised animals. The health benefits of grass-fed meat can actually lower "bad" (LDL) cholesterol levels.
There are two to four times more Omega-3 fatty acids in grass-fed meat and dairy than meat from grain-fed animals. Eggs from pastured hens can contain up to 10 times the amount of Omega 3s than eggs from conventional factory-farm operations. Omega 3s are "good" fats that play a vital role in every cell and system in the human body. When one consumes a sufficient amount of heart-healthy Omega 3s, they are less likely to have high blood pressure, irregular heart beats, suffer a heart attack, depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, and Alzheimer's disease. Omega 3s may also reduce the risk of developing cancer or slow the growth of cancers and speed recovery from surgeries.
Grass-fed Beef has more CLA
Conjugated linoic acid (CLA) is another good fat. Meat from grass-fed animals contain three to five times more CLA than meat from conventional-fed animals. Studies have shown CLA to be one of the most potent defenses against cancer.
Grass-fed Beef is a great source for Vitamin E
Meat from grass-fed animals has four times higher amounts of Vitamin E than meat from grainfed animals. Most Americans are deficient in Vitamin E. It is a potent anti-oxidant that is linked to lower risks of heart disease and cancer. It may also have anti-aging properties.
