Grass-fed Beef, Meat with Amazing Benefits

Grass-fed Beef, Meat with Amazing Benefits

Most of the beef you eat comes from cattle that were raised eating grass or hay up until the last few months of their life. We call this grass-fed, grain-finished. 100% grass-fed beef, meaning the cow never ate grain, is becoming more and more popular. And that's because the meat is simply amazing.

Beef that comes from 100% grass-fed cattle is higher in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and contains fewer calories and saturated fat than grain-finished beef. This makes it an ideal choice for those looking to reduce the risk of heart disease and other inflammatory diseases. Grass-fed beef also contains higher amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals than grain-fed beef, making it a healthier choice overall.

The AHA recommends 100% grass-fed beef as part of a heart-healthy diet. That's because eating lean proteins like grass-fed beef can help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. All great things, right? The AHA also recommends limiting saturated fat and cholesterol, which is lower in grain-fed beef than compared to traditional grain-finished beef you'd buy in stores.

The benefits don't end at health benefits. In addition to its nutritional benefits, grass-fed beef is also better for the environment. Cattle raised on grass are able to graze and fertilize their pastures, which helps to reduce soil erosion and preserve the surrounding environment.

100% grass-fed beef is the ideal choice for those looking to improve their health and reduce their environmental impact. The lean protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, and anti-oxidants in grass-fed beef can help improve overall health.
