Research shows that grass-fed beef is good for you!
It is high in Omega 3 and CLA (conjugated linoliec acid) with six times the vitamin e of grain fed beef. When ruminants are raised on fresh pasture alone (as nature intended), they contain three to five times more CLA than animals fed conventional diets.
CLA may be one of the best defenses against cancer, research has shown that a very small amount of CLA may reduce the risk of cancer.
Because grass-fed meat is lean it is also lower in calories. A 6-ounce steak from a grass-fed steer has almost 100 less calories than that of a grain-fed steer. And although grass-fed meat is low in total fat, it has two to six times more omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3’s are the “good fats!” People who have diets with abundant omega-3’s are less likely to have high blood pressure and fifty per-cent less likely to suffer a heart attack. Omega-3’s are essential for your brain. Again, people with a diet rich in omega-3’s are less likely to suffer from depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder or Alzheimer’s disease.
