Benefits of eating Free Range Grass Fed beef:
Beef raised on green pasture is naturally high in Vitamin E, CLA and Omega-3.
Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin with powerful antioxidant activity. Antioxidants protect cells against the effects of free radicals, which are potentially damaging by products of the body's metabolism that may contribute to chronic health problems.
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) has numerous health benefits, including a reduction in cancer, heart disease, onset of diabetes and accumulation of body fat. In addition, CLA tends to reduce cholesterol.
Omega-3s have proven to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, depression, allergies, auto immune disorders, obesity and diabetes. Omega-3 fatty acids are created in the green leaves of plants.
Cattle that are grass fed have 60 percent more Omega-3 fatty acids and a more favorable Omega-6 ratio. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent heart disease and arthritis.
