Benefits of grass-fed beef include several vitamins and nutrients that help your cells fight damage as well as building stronger muscle and cartilage tissue. Grass-fed beef is packed with B vitamins, and has been found to be higher in vitamins A, E, and other antioxidants compared to grain fed beef.
Grass-fed beef has similar benefits that grain-fed beef has, but research has shown a few added benefits from grass-fed beef. For example, grass-fed beef has significantly lower levels of saturated fat compared to grain-fed beef. The fat content of grass-fed beef can actually be quite close to that of skinless chicken. The decrease in saturated fat has been proven to reduce the risk of heart diseases.
Beef is a source of high-quality protein because it has every amino acid your body needs to make a complete protein building block. The protein from grass-fed beef also helps prevent a loss of muscle mass due to a deficiency in protein over time.
Studies have shown that grass-fed beef contains two to six times more omega-3 fatty acids than feed-lot beef. Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to help prevent diseases like heart disease, stroke, lupus, eczema, arthritis, and many more conditions. There is also research that shows that grass-fed beef contains more anti-oxidants than grain-fed beef. This can be very beneficial to preventing cell damage that can lead to serious diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
Grass-fed beef also contains an amino acid called beta-alanine. This helps your body form a compound called carnosine, which is important for muscle function. It can increase your capacity and performance in high-intensity exercise.
