The chemicals and pesticides in the non-organic foods make them weak. These foods contain fewer amounts of nutrients. Similarly, grass-fed meat is better than gran-fed meat. These are some good reasons why you must eat grass-fed meat.
They are higher in omega-3 fatty acids
Grass-fed animal meat has two to four times more omega-3s compared to the grain-fed meat. The longer cattle are fed grains, the lower the quality of the meat becomes. Omega-3s are essential for the functioning of our body cells. They help to improve the heart, blood, and genetic function.
They have higher CLA that helps to burn fat
Meats that are grass-fed are very rich in fatty acid ‘conjugated linoleic acid’ or CLA. This fatty acid increases the metabolism of your body, controls the cholesterol level, boosts immunity and even fights cancer. It helps to lose weight and increase the muscle strength.
They have lower amount of saturated fats
The saturated fats that are found in grass-fed meat are stearic acid, myristic acid, and palmitic acid. The grass-fed meats contain less palmitic and myristic acid that helps s to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
They are better for the environment.
Many cattle eat in feedlots. The diet contains corn, grains, cereal, stale bread, chicken feathers, soy, etc. The cow waste that results from this diet causes the greenhouse effect. The factory-raised cattle are produced using pesticides and fertilizers. These leave carbon footprints. The grass-fed cows, on the other hand, have a symbiotic relationship with the land where they graze. They encourage new plant growth by clearing pastures. They also help develop productive soil with their nutrient-rich manure.
Though grass-fed meat has so many advantages, it only makes 3% of the total meat sales. People should be more conscious about their health and eat grass-fed meat.
