We all want to feed our families the best. But with so many misleading labels in the meat aisle, it’s tough to know what the best actually is. To avoid this issue, go right to the source, buy from a local rancher, and start eating pasture raised beef.
There are so many reasons why locally grown, pasture raised beef is one of the most healthy proteins you can buy. Below, we share four important benefits and why you should Eat Better Beef.
Pasture Raised Beef Contains Omega-3s
We’ve all heard of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. You might even take supplements like fish oil to increase your intake of this nutrient. But did you know that an important benefit of pasture raised beef is that it provides up to six times more omega-3s than standard beef?
Here are some of the conditions that omega-3s can help improve:
- Mental Health: Research has shown improvements in mental well-being with increased levels of omega-3s.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: Markers of inflammation don’t stand a chance against the omega-3s in pasture raised beef!
- Concentration: omega-3s have shown promising results as an alternative in treating attention deficit disorders (ADHD).
Pasture Raised Beef Decreases Your Risk of Heart Disease
As we just mentioned, pasture raised beef is much higher in omega-3 fatty acids than regular beef. But here’s something else surprising, despite having more good fat, it actually has less overall fat than other types of beef. This is because it’s fed a natural diet without steroids or growth hormones.
As you know, unhealthy fats are the main culprit when it comes to heart disease. Therefore, eating pasture raised beef actually reduces your risk of heart disease compared to consuming other types of meat.
On top of all this, pasture raised beef has lower amounts of LDL cholesterol (the wrong kind) than other beef. The benefits keep stacking up!
Pasture Raised Beef Can Help Fight Cancer
Have you heard of conjugated linoleic acid? CLA is one of the most powerful anti-cancer nutrients known today. In fact, in a recent study, women prescribed CLA-rich foods had a roughly 60% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who didn’t have CLA in their diet.
How can you add more conjugated linoleic acid to your diet? You guessed it! Pasture raised beef contains almost twice as much conjugated linoleic acid as typical meat.
Pasture Raised Beef Tastes Better
The last important benefit to mention is its taste. Simply put, it’s delicious. The meat has a big, beefy flavor with nice, earthy undertones. When they try it for the first time, many people compare it to dry-aged steak. This is due to the varied diet of grasses found in a typical field and the natural methods that local ranchers use to raise their beef.
