1. GRASS-FED BEEF BOASTS HIGHER OMEGA 3 AND LOWER OMEGA 6
Why does this matter?
Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are both considered essential for the body, which means that they must be consumed via the diet. Historically, these fats were consumed in relatively similar quantities, with recommended guidelines for a standard healthy diet recommending a 4:1 ratio. However, modern diets typically consume an average ratio of 20:1. Studies show that too much omega 6 can raise your blood pressure, lead to blood clots that can cause heart attack and stroke, and cause your body to retain water.
Thus, adding grass-fed beef to your diet contributes to an overall healthy lifestyle.
2. GRASS-FED BEEF IS HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Cattle consuming antioxidant-rich vegetation which produces beef with high levels of these antioxidants:
- Superoxide dismutase
- vitamin E
- Beta carotene
3. GRASSFED BEEF IS A SOURCE OF CLA
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) – is a fatty acid synthesized by cows when they graze on pasture. This nutrient is present in the meat and milk of grass-fed cows.
CLA exhibits potent antioxidant activity, and research indicates that CLA might be protective against heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Beef is one of the best dietary sources of CLA.
4. FREE OF HORMONES & ANTIBIOTICS
Our rangeland is managed as a natural ecosystem. We move cattle around to mimic natural grazing patterns of wildlife while protecting areas of new growth for future grazing.
They eat their natural diet of prairie grass, and pure spring water. Our animals live a stress free life of roaming and grazing our 1000 acres of native grassland, forests, shrub and riparian areas.
