Nutritional Benefits of Grass-fed Beef


Did you know that the nutritional benefits present in grass-fed beef are nearly absent in grain-fed beef? That may not be too surprising, but it is more impressive that grass-fed beef has 4 to 6 times less fat content than grain-feed beef and that's like eating a skinless chicken! Other nutritional benefits include the fact that grass-fed beef has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, B vitamins (Thiamin and Riboflavin), along with essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium as well as antioxidants. Grass-fed beef, which has less cholesterol, total fat, saturated fat and fewer calories per serving than grain-fed beef can actually help lower bad LDL cholesterol. Grass-fed beef also has a healthier range of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids by a long shot. Being in high in omega-3 acids aids in the prevention of coronary artery diseases, hypertension, arthritis, cancers and some inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. Compared to grain-fed grass-fed beef is higher in conjugated linoleic acid, CLA which has anti-cancer properties and has been linked with weight management.
