HEALTH BENEFITS OF GRASS FED BEEF

A Healthier Option

Cattle are intended to thrive on an all-grass diet, and they are happiest and healthiest when we allow them to live as nature intended. Because of our commitment to traditional, sustainable ranching, SunFed Ranch beef packs powerful protein and other important nutrients for you and your family.

Grass fed beef is higher in heart- and brain-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene and vitamins A and E. SunFed Ranch beef is also an excellent source of vitamin B12, a critical nutrient not readily available from plant protein sources.

Leaner, Meaner Beef

Grass fed beef tends to be much lower in total fat than grain-fed beef. Studies show that a sirloin steak from a grass fed steer has about one half to one third the amount of fat as a similar cut from a grain fed steer. Because grass fed meat is leaner, it is also lower in calories and higher in protein.

Higher in Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids are fats that the human body cannot make but are essential for human health. It is estimated that up to 40% of Americans don’t get enough Omega-3s.

Beyond being essential for normal growth, these fats have a wealth of additional health benefits, including heart health, mental health, and cancer prevention. Grass fed beef has up to 6x more Omega-3s than grain fed beef.

  • Omega-3s help prevent hardening of the arteries, lower certain fats in the blood, can lower blood pressure, and can provide anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Studies have shown that depression improves when Omega-3s are added to diets. Omega-3s have also been shown to reduce the decline of cognitive function and progression to dementia.

  • Need another reason? There is even evidence that Omega-3s help reduce the risk of some cancers.

The Best Known Source of CLAs

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLAs) is good fat with incredible health benefits. It is found almost exclusively in ruminant animals like cows (read: multiple stomachs.), and has been shown to help burn fat and build muscle, reduce inflammation, boost immune systems, and strengthen bones.

Oh, and did we mention it helps lower the risk of certain cancers and diabetes? Because there is strong evidence to support that too.

And grass fed beef and milk has been shown to be the richest source of CLAs, with up to 3x as much as grain-fed beef.
