Why Choose Grass-Fed Beef?

Besides the fact that it's nature's design for cows to eat grass, there are several characteristics of grass-fed beef that make it a more sensible choice than grain-fed.

The quality of the fat in grass-fed beef is higher than that of grain-fed, because it contains a greater proportion of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are important anti-inflammatory agents. Grain-fed beef, on the other hand, contains a higher percentage of Omega-6 fatty acids, which have been shown to produce significantly more inflammation. In addition, the ratio of fat found in grass-fed beef is far easier on our bodies than grain-fed, and lower in saturated fat as well.

Grass-fed beef is the only type of beef that contains an important fat known as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has significant antioxidant properties, and has been shown to help prevent certain types of cancer.
