Reason 2 : Heart Healthy, Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef Protein Powder
In our last post we discussed the how grass-fed beef protein collagen powder is a source of superior nutrition to that of grain-fed beef. In this post let’s discuss how our hearts can be helped by consuming grass-fed beef protein collagen.
As we cruise about the internet we may find several articles that try to debunk some of the claims associated with grass-fed beef protein collagen powder. No doubt, when a person or company is trying to sell something they may blow some claims out of proportion. A healthy review of both sides is always encouraged but we’d like to call a few indisputable facts to the stage.
The Mayo Clinic indicated the following: “Grass-fed beef may have some heart-health benefits that other types of beef don't have. When compared with other types of beef, grass-fed beef may have:
- Less total fat
- More heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids
- More conjugated linoleic acid, a type of fat that's thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks
- More antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E
Talk to your doctor or dietitian if you're thinking about adding more lean beef, including grass-fed beef, into your diet.”
We discussed several of these benefits of grass-fed beef protein collagen powder in our previous post but we’d like to zero in on the Omega-3 fatty acids. Probably the most distinguishing factor of grass-fed beef protein powder is that it has twice as much Omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed. This isn’t something that can be faked.
Our body has to have Omega-3 fatty acids to function…meaning if we don’t have them we will die! Why? Our bodies are made of cells and omega-3 fats are an integral part of the cell membranes. Not to mention, the body can produce several of the fats it needs on its own but not omega-3.
Now that we know it is essential, why would we consume a beef protein collagen powder with half as much omega-3? Good question, why would we? We shouldn’t! Consuming grass-fed beef protein collagen powder not only delivers more omega-3 fatty acids to our body but grass-fed cattle are raised without antibiotics on well managed pastures that use less energy, pollute less, and are more humane than the run-in-the-mill feedlot.
