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.

Heart Health

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.

Muscle Mass

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.

Disease Prevention

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.

Exercise Performance

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.
