The Benefits of Beef
Here at Pre, we all love an excellent juicy cut of premium grass fed beef, but is it healthy? Packed with valuable protein that helps build muscle mass and is extremely rich in minerals, many qualities make beef a healthy option. Our favorite benefit is that it’s chock-full of vitamins. In addition to being protein-rich, grass-fed beef helps prevent iron deficiency anemia.
The vitamins in grass-fed and finished beef are essential to life. These vitamins include vitamins A and B. Although vitamin A is present in beef, it’s not in all cuts of beef. Vitamin A is abundant in the liver due to organ function and a healthy immune system. So next time, try a hearty serving of juicy, tender beef instead of reaching for a bottle of supplements.
Vitamin B-12 and Grass-Fed Beef
One of the most widely available vitamins in grass-fed beef is Vitamin B-12, in very high quantities. Vitamin B-12 supports brain health and immune system function and helps to support and regulate metabolism. In addition, proper vitamin B intake supports the growth of red blood cells and regulates heart health.
What Sets Grass Fed & Finished Beef Apart?
Grass-fed and finished beef cattle are allowed to graze and feed on natural grasses that contain vitamins and essential nutrients. Because the cattle aren’t grazing on processed or fermented feed, the nutrition they receive is higher.
Animals fed a grain diet are typically supplemented with particular vitamins to help maintain proper vitamin intake, but these are often flushed through the animal’s system. Instead, with grass-fed & finished beef, the cattle get their vitamins directly from grazing on nutritious natural grasses. The intake of naturally occurring vitamins paired with a low-stress environment and regular exercise leads to a higher level of vitamins in grass-fed beef overall.
In short, grass is full of vitamins and essential nutrients, so grass-fed & finished beef is superior in flavor, nutrition, and micronutrients compared to factory-farmed beef.
