There are plenty of reasons for consuming grass-fed meats instead of grain-fed meats. Aside from the environmental factors, many consumers enjoy the important health benefits that grass-fed meats provide. If you choose grass-fed meats, here are some of the health benefits you can enjoy:
The health attributes of grass-fed meats are concentrated in the fat. With feed-lot beef, the fat is very bad for your health whereas with grass-fed, the fat is very good for your health. So sauces or gravies are a good idea.
Grass-fed meat has 2 to 4 times more omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain-fed animals. Omega 3’s are good fats that everyone should incorporate into their diet. They play a vital role in every cell and system in the body and have even been shown to reduce the likelihood of cancer.
