Health Benefits of Grass Fed Beef

Health Benefits of Grass Fed Beef

  • Recent studies have uncovered the large difference in carotenoid content between grass-fed and conventionally fed beef. Grass-fed beef may contain more than twice the amount of beta-carotene and lutein present in conventionally fed beef.
  • The cholesterol content of grass-fed beef has repeatedly been shown to be lower than the cholesterol content in beef from conventionally fed animals.
  • You’ll find yourself getting 500-800 milligrams of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) from a 4-ounce serving of grass-fed beef. This amount is approximately two to three times greater than the amount found in non grass-fed beef. CLA is unique in its chemical structure, and this uniqueness is associated with an increasing list of health benefits, including immune and inflammatory system support, improved bone mass, improved blood sugar regulation, reduced body fat, reduced risk of heart attack, and maintenance of lean body mass.
  • Grass-fed beef also contains greater amounts of vaccenic acid than conventionally fed beef. Various bacteria in our digestive tract are able to convert vaccenic acid into CLA once we’ve consumed grass-fed beef, and this process can further increase the practical amount of CLA that we receive from grass-fed animals.
  • The omega-3 fat content of grass-fed beef varies, but is higher in grass fed cows. Some recent studies show up to 3.5 grams of total omega-3 fats in 4 ounces of grass-fed beef.
