Beef and your health

Grass-fed beef is a superb source of good fats.

Over the course of the past century, medical advice on eating fats has come full-circle.  We now realize that what our ancestors ate naturally is the best diet of all — simply because that’s what our bodies are designed for.

Grass-fed beef is a much healthier choice than feedlot beef, because of the natural nutrients available to the cattle when they are out at pasture.  Those nutrients get passed on to you when you eat their beef.

Pasture-raised, grass-fed beef is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids.

For an optimum diet that minimises the risk of heart disease and many other potential health problems, it’s important to balance the levels of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids that we eat.

Most of us get too much Omega 6, and not enough Omega 3.  You can raise your Omega 3 intake by eating foods like freshwater fish and grass-fed beef.
 

Grass-fed beef is becoming scientifically accepted as nutritionally superior.

Pasture-raised, grass-fed beef is an exceptional source of omega-3s, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).

When you think about it, it just makes sense that the diet of our cattle will affect the nutrient value of their meat.  Giving them natural, healthy feed gives you the assurance that you’re getting the best meat possible.
