Why Eat Grass-Fed-Beef
American Grass Fed Beef and Fatty Acid Ratios
heard a lot about the healthiest meat. Beef does not normally
top the list. While the beef cattle industry wants you to
believe that beef is the meat you should eat - it's what's
for dinner - most health experts agree that eating meat,
beef especially, is not your best choice for improved health.
But those opinions
change when we come to American grass fed beef. Beef
products from cattle that are grass fed have a huge number
Let's look at how
beef cattle normally are fed, why that's bad, and the advantages
of grass fed cattle.
The History of Cattle Feed
Cattle have been
on this planet for a very, very long time, but only in the
last few thousand years have humans become agrarian and
begun farming beef cattle. In the early years of beef cattle
production, those cattle grazed and ate grass.
cattle have been converted to grain as a food, because beef
cattle production becomes cheaper and easier with grain
The problem is,
cattle - beef cattle or milk cattle - did not evolve to
eat whole grain, or any grain at all. Cattle's natural food
One of the primary
reasons grass fed beef is far superior is that grain fed
beef has a skewed ration of fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega
3. You may have heard that we need fatty acids, and that's
The Simple Truth of Why Grass-Fed is Healthier
If you've never
eaten grass-fed beef before then you do not truly know
what beef is supposed to taste like. Feeding cattle on
the feedlot, a man-made invention has changed the taste
of beef. Pasture raised cattle have 50% less saturated
fat (the bad kind of fat) which is another reason it is
less greasy and healthier for you. You will not be left
with a slimy feeling on the roof of your mouth. Next
time you eat a Big Mac (but don't), you'll know what I
Eating pasture raised beef will help you to:
• Lose weight
• Reduce your risk of cancer
• Reduce your risk of diabetes
• Improve your heart health
• Decrease inflammation and arthritis
• Reduce your risk of allergies
The scientific evidence is now beyond reproach and the
reason these health benefits are all possible is simple;
cattle were meant to eat green, leafy, natural plants,
not grain. When cattle eat grain their fat contains a
higher amount of omega-6 fatty acids. When cattle
consume green leafy plants, as they were designed to do,
their fat contains a higher amount of omega-3 fatty
acid. This improves the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio
Scientists have discovered that a diet higher in omega 3
fatty acids improves health for a variety of reasons.
But one of the most important things it does is help
decrease inflammation in the body naturally.
Inflammation, it turns out, is at the root cause of many
illnesses seen in America, and around the world, today.
We recommend you use
natural remedies whenever possible.
Fatty Acid Ratios
What we really
need are Omega 6 and Omega 3 in a 1:1 ratio.
What we usually
get in our food is a ratio of 15:1 up to over 50:1.
This is especially
true of meat, beef in particular.
Why Are Fatty
Acid Ratios Important?
When you have
a proper ratio of fatty acids, as you can get from grass
fed beef, you have a decreased risk of dementia, heart
disease, cancer and stroke. These are scientifically proven
benefits of proper ratios of Omega 6 and 3.
