First of all, we need to know: ‘What is the grass-fed beef?’. Grass-fed beef simply means that cattle are humanely raised (without the use of growth hormones and/or antibiotics feed on the pasture) and allowed to spend their entire lives living in and eating natural and fresh pasture. Therefore, we should know where the meat we eat comes from.
Well then, what are the benefits of grass-fed beef for our health?
*Reduced Risk of Heart Disease and Cancer
Grass-fed beef contains low amounts of saturated fats. The beef which contains low amount of saturated fats may reduce risk of heart disease. Also, grass-fed beef contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which fights off cancer.
