Consuming grass-fed beef and dairy is good for you. Grass fed beef provides fats that help with weight loss and promote youthful skin, bones and heart.
Grass fed cows typically get more exercise, making their meat leaner. For every 3 oz serving, there’s around 6g less fat in grass fed beef than it’s grain-fed counterpart. If you’re counting calories, this is good news. But, even more important, is that the quality of fat in grass fed beef is much better. Grass fed beef contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which keep the heart, joints, brain and skin appearing youthful. Moreover, another fat – CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) comes directly from the grass (there is none in GMO grain), enables stored fat to be burned as energy, which raises metabolism and helps a person to be leaner. CLA is also known to cause cancer cell apoptosis (suicide), and who doesn’t want that in this day and age? Also, low levels of CLA in our diet have been partially linked to the rise of obesity.
Here are some other benefits of grass fed beef:
- Contains 4 times more Vitamin E than grain-fed beef (makes you more youthful – nobody wants to look like an old leather bag!!!)
- Good selenium levels lessen anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Low levels are associated with heart and bone disease.
- Contains the highest level of zinc in any meat, promoting clear skin, strong nails and boosts the immune system.
- Conenzyme Q-10 increases energy in all cells, especially the heart, so it supports overall vigor.
There’s much more to say, but this just gives you a taste. Quite frankly, grass fed beef is far superior to grain fed, industrialized beef.
