Health Benefits of Grass-Fed

Grass-fed is lower in fat and cholesterol

Meat from grass-fed animals has up to one-third less fat than grain-fed feed-lot raised animals. The health benefits of grass-fed meat can actually lower "bad" (LDL) cholesterol levels.

There are two to four times more Omega-3 fatty acids in grass-fed meat and dairy than meat from grain-fed animals. Eggs from pastured hens can contain up to 10 times the amount of Omega 3s than eggs from conventional factory-farm operations. Omega 3s are "good" fats that play a vital role in every cell and system in the human body. When one consumes a sufficient amount of heart-healthy Omega 3s, they are less likely to have high blood pressure, irregular heart beats, suffer a heart attack, depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, and Alzheimer's disease. Omega 3s may also reduce the risk of developing cancer or slow the growth of cancers and speed recovery from surgeries.

More CLA

Conjugated linoic acid (CLA) is another good fat. Meat from grass-fed animals contain three to five times more CLA than meat from conventional-fed animals. Studies have shown CLA to be one of the most potent defenses against cancer.

Vitamin E

Meat from grass-fed animals has four times higher amounts of Vitamin E than meat from grain-fed animals. Most Americans are deficient in Vitamin E. It is a potent anti-oxidant that is linked to lower risks of heart disease and cancer. It may also have anti-aging properties.
