Why Grass Fed Beef Vs. Grain Fed?
There is a huge difference between pastured grass fed beef and grain fed beef. Chemically speaking, the two meats are not the same.
- Grass fed beef has more omega three fatty acids. These fats help support a normal inflammatory response.
- Grass fed beef has higher levels of beta carotene and other vitamins.
- The fat in grain fed beef is highly inflammatory and contributes to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
