Grass fed meat whether it is beef, lamb, goat, chicken, turkey has endless benefits for the human body when consumed in moderation. Grass-fed meat holds special minerals, vitamins, micro-nutrients and beneficial antioxidants and fatty acids that plain and simple lack from your conventional grain fed livestock.
Here we will list many credible research and studies that outline the claim above.
STUDY: A review of fatty acid profiles and antioxidant content in grass-fed and grain-fed beef
Decades long research published in the Nutritional Journal and documented in PMC US National Library of Medicine clearly shows how grass fed beef has much higher beneficial constituents and much less “bad cholesterol elevating SFAs”
Conclusion from the study:
“Research spanning three decades supports the argument that grass-fed beef (on a g/g fat basis), has a more desirable SFA lipid profile (more C18:0 cholesterol neutral SFA and less C14:0 & C16:0 cholesterol elevating SFAs) as compared to grain-fed beef. Grass-finished beef is also higher in total CLA (C18:2) isomers, TVA (C18:1 t11) and n-3 FAs on a g/g fat basis. This results in a better n-6:n-3 ratio that is preferred by the nutritional community. Grass-fed beef is also higher in precursors for Vitamin A and E and cancer fighting antioxidants such as GT and SOD activity as compared to grain-fed”
STUDY: Is Grassfed Meat and Dairy Better for Human and Environmental Health?
A study published in Frontiers in Nutrition institute and published in PMC US National Library of Medicine showcased the argument that:
“Circumstantial evidence supports the hypothesis that plant diversity—manifest as phytochemical richness of landscapes—affects the biochemical richness of meat and dairy as well as human and environmental health”
